Dublin’s best restaurants, according to TikTok

Here are five of Dublin’s best restaurants, based on their TikTokability

Apparently, TikTok has officially overtaken Google when it comes to search queries among Gen Z. From beauty product recommendations to where to head off on holidays, it’s no surprise that food and drink suggestions are also a top priority.

Influencer marketing agency Ubiquitous put in the heavy lifting when it came to sifting through the infinite content on the video platform, and have revealed the most Tik-Tokable restaurants and bars of 2022, according to views.

The list was topped by London’s Nusr-Et with 21.6 billion views on the app, followed by Chula in Sydney and another London destination in Luca. Plenty of restaurants and bars from across Ireland made the cut, including Galway’s Misunderstood Heron, Antrim’s 3 Levels, and Mickey Ryan’s in Tipperary.

While a number of excellent Dublin bars and restaurants made the cut, we’re taking a look at the cream of the crop only. Without further ado, here are five of the best restaurants in Dublin, according to TikTok.

Amy Austin

Unit 1 Drury Street Carpark, Drury Street, Dublin 2

Ranking within the top 25 worldwide, Amy Austin is officially the most TikTokable restaurant in Ireland. Serving up an incredible array of sharing plates including standout menu options such as beef tataki, black cod fritters, and butternut squash. They’ve got a large selection of wine on tap, with an even larger selection available by the bottle.

PINK

34 William Street South, Dublin 2

Offering a truly unique dining experience in a sea of all things pink, this restaurant has become widely known for their lunch and brunch specialities, and their signature pink afternoon tea. From the plates and bowls to the walls and ceiling, stepping into PINK is like stepping into a bowl of candy floss.

Terra Madre

13A Bachelors Walk, North City, Dublin 1

@eadaoinfitzmaurice You’d walk right by Terra Madre on Bachelor’s Walk, but if you love #italianfood you MUST try it ? #dublin #ireland ? Wanna Be Startin’ Something – Michael Jackson – livethelifethatyoudread

Just about as authentically Italian as you can get in Dublin city, Terra Madre is a small, independent, owner-run café-restaurant that serves simple, tasty, high-quality Italian food and wine. No excessive frills, just good food, a great ambiance, and some sensational wine to top it all off.

Cluck Chicken

22 Greenhills Road, Walkinstown, Dublin 12

A food truck had to make its way into the most TikTok-able foodie spots in Ireland, and Cluck Chicken is always a top-notch choice. Bright yellow and incredibly eye-catching, the sticky Korean wings alone are enough to seal the deal. They’ve got a range of tenders, burgers, and loaded fries to choose from, and their mac and cheese is no joke either.

Krewe

51-52 Capel Street, North City, Dublin 1

A New Orleans Louisiana inspired eatery bringing the dirty south to the northside, Krewe we are all about fusing the vibrancy, craic and soul of Southern and Irish hospitality. The menu takes inspiration from the flavour of Cajun Creole cuisine while making good use of local ingredients, and their desserts always keep people coming back.
