Korean Chicken Wings
Jalan Jalan, Castle Street
Jalan Jalan restaurant in Sligo is a real gem, serving up a range of delicious food. With each dish offering an innovative take on Asian cuisine, you can't really go wrong with anything on the menu, but we particularly like the look of the Korean chicken wings. Doused in fragrant Korean hot sauce, these wings look meaty and moreish.

Roast Turmeric Cauliflower, Sweet Potato Dal and Micro Sunflower Sprouts
Lyons Café and Bakeshop, Quay Street
Lyons Café serves up a different salad every day, depending on what their suppliers have available, so you know you're getting the freshest food possible. Adding turmeric to this dish, along with the spices from the sweet potato dal, ensures that the cauliflower is jam-packed with flavour.
Knox, O'Connell Street
Known for its innovative tapas, Knox is well worth a trip to the West. This lamb flatbread is made with local, delicious ingredients, ensuring you're in for a treat when you dine here. If lamb isn't your cup of tea, treat yourself to a different dish from Knox's menu as their tapas offerings include a wide range of options and flavours.
Coach Lane, Lord Edward Street
Looking for something a bit more traditional? This prawn cocktail from Coach Lane combines great Irish produce with classic flavours. We love to see restaurants reinvent classic dishes and this prawn cocktail looks absolutely delicious.
