Kim Chi/The Hop House information
Two distinct halves – one strictly Korean, the other very Irish – make up this buzzy eatery on one of Dublin’s most ethnically diverse streets. The food – a mixture of Korean with the odd Japanese bento thrown in for good measure – is served in Kimchi (which refers to a pickled vegetable ever-present in Korean cuisine), while just across the room is the Hop House, Korea’s version of an Irish bar, where you can wash it all down with a beer, local or imported.
