Bread & Bones
7 Millennium Walkway, Dublin 1
Soup is one of my all time favourite things to eat so when I found out that there was a speciality soup place opening in Dublin, I was bleedin’ delighted. Bread & Bones dishes up hefty delicious noodle broths and baos (steamed buns that are like light, fluffy clouds) as well as other tasty bites. I’ve only been once so far but I’ve been thinking about their tantanmen (spiced ground pork, chili sesame broth) ever since. The portions are really big and filling so for €12, you could do a lot worse for your dinner.
What has it got?
Seating: The majority of the tables are up high with stools but there is one lower table with moveable chairs that would suit a wheelchair. They also have a low table with a couch.
Doors: The front door is a bit heavy to open but it’s very wide.
Ground: The floors are painted concrete.
Stairs: Everything you need is on the ground floor and it’s all flat.
Bathrooms: They have a big wheelchair bathroom on the ground floor (60×90) and the ladies and gents are also on the ground floor.
Spaciousness: There’s loads of room here and the tables are spaced out nicely so you’re not sitting on top of other people.
Helpfulness of Staff: They’re great and very helpful with explaining the menu. If you ask for a suitable table, they will do their best to sort that for you.
Parking: There is wheelchair parking available on Great Strand Street, which is practically at the door of Bread & Bones.
Why did it lose points? It didn’t! Coming here was a totally stress-free experience. I didn’t feel crowded or uncomfortable at any point and I’m dying to come back to try more things on the menu. The front door might be a bit difficult to push open but the staff are quite accommodating and should be able to grab that for you.
