Treehouse Treats – Five Star Dining On Wheels in Goatstown
Well known Dublin Chefs Daniel Hannigan, David Keane and Restaurant Manager Luke Murphy have launched their new premium outdoor dining experience ‘Treehouse Treats’ which is based on the Lower Kilmacud Road in Goatstown.
Based out of a new customized airstream van, high end desserts and premium coffee are available for takeaway 7 days a week from the privately owned site.
Fans of Hannigan’s penchant for great food with a twist will not be disappointed as the menu includes a duck doughnut with a rhubarb hoisin dipping sauce.
“We wanted to offer something outside of the standard savoury fare and do something new, says Hannigan. The Pandemic has given us the opportunity to do that and we believe that there is a genuine public appetite for quality desserts and pastries. People miss visiting their favourite restaurants and Treehouse Treats offers dishes that would generally be enjoyed in award winning restaurants”.
The full menu includes Vanilla & Roasted Berry Cheesecake, Salted Caramel Tart, Chocolate Mousse Tart, Strawberry Panna Cotta, Dublin Honey and Lavender Canelés, Hazelnut Craquelin Choux Buns, Brown Butter Cookies and Protein Balls. Prices vary between €2- €7.
Sustainability and ethics are a big part of the Treehouse Treats ethos – all foodware is biodegradable whilst both their coffee and chocolate are ethically sourced Guatemalan Red Bean and Columbian Luker respectively.
The trio share a collective impressive food work resume including such establishments as L’Ecrivain, Thorntons, Richmond, Mister S, Wishbone, Brookwood and Gregan’s Castle. They are also the tour de force behind the ‘Food for Thought’ Charity dinners which have raised over €41,000 for suicide prevention charity 3TS.
Entire tarts and cakes may also be ordered in advance for collection. Presently, service is takeaway only in accordance with legislation but patrons will be welcome to sit and consume when outdoor dining is permitted.
