Experience Ireland's Other Specialty: The Burrito
If you're visiting Ireland, burritos wouldn't immediately come to mind as a local specialty, but Boojum Mexican Burrito Bar along Dublin's Millennium Walkway is a delicious, fresh, and belly-satisfying treat for both visitors and locals alike.
Owned and operated by a friendly Irish-American couple with a serious love for burritos, Boojum offers an amped up alternative to take-away deli sambos or traditional, sit-down Mexican. After building one's own burrito, with options of rice, beans, seasoned meat and extra fillings, visitors can choose to fight for a spot at one of the long communal benches, or haul their dumbbell of a burrito to the boardwalk by the Liffey, and enjoy the bustling sights and sounds of life along the river - weather permitting, of course.
For those who aren't "burrito people," Boojum also offers the same build-your-own concept in the form of tacos, salads, and fajitas which are equally as delicious and filling. Of course, Mexican food wouldn't be complete without a cold beer, so Boojum has stocked their coolers with Corona, Sol, Desperados and an assortment of other imported beers for relatively reasonable prices.
If you're a student, don't forget your student card because it entitles you to a great discount, but don't stop by if you're in a rush. As good as Boojum is, the line is typically out the door, especially during peak lunch and dinner times.
