[Review] Fuel...Fit Food, Clontarf, Dublin 3

This morning, I woke up feeling foggy and not rested. When I feel that way, one of my favourite cures is a brisk walk in the fresh air to flush out the cobwebs. Usually I head towards Sandymount or one of the around the southside of the city. Today however, I wanted to take a look at the ongoing renovations at Clontarf Baths, so we headed north. 

45 minutes walking later, I was feeling much better. Looking around Vernon Avenue, we spotted the very small and cute Fuel...Fit Food. The best word to describe the interior is compact, with many small tables neatly tucked in. The focus here is clearly on healthy tasty food, with a young clientele who appear to like their coffees flat and white.

To put it simply, I was hugely impressed with Fuel. Even though the dishes were simple, they were perfectly executed. Streaky bacon was pan-fried in the pan and served with the tasty crunchy dark bits. Eggs were perfectly scrambled or in my case fried and topped with toasted sesame seeds. Little dabs of chipotle creme fraiche or hearty chorizo beans added flavour.

Add in a good Americano and flat white, served in cute short glasses and everything at Fuel simply worked. Other venues serving complicated brunch could take some lessons from the little kitchen at Fuel.
