The Dish team headed along to soak up the vibes and get stuck into some seriously good food at the re-opening of Parnell’s beloved Barulho. Supreme hosts Sarah Ginella and Nico Mendez are multi-tasking up a storm, having recently transformed the old site into Fonda, ‘a casual, neighbourhood local serving Mexican-inspired snacks, cocktails and agua frescas’, they are now opening the doors on their new 100-seater restaurant, right next door.
Loyal Barulho regulars were there in force to support one of their favourite eateries, and the mood was definitely up-beat. From the drummers to the DJ the music was in line with the food – full of flavour and joy. Sipping on Aperol Spritz and Sangria we nibbled on empanadas and sliders while keeping an eye out for the main event – the spectacular, vast paella, loaded with seafood with generous amounts of luscious aioli. Huge congratulations to Sarah and Nico, we couldn’t be more excited for them and their newly expanded offering.
