Dinner at Yours…

It’s the lockdown supper club. 

From this week, you’ll be able to pick up a bag of Cafe Rua dinner & dessert on a Friday afternoon and enjoy some of our favourite Cafe dishes in the comfort of your own home.

We first heard about the ‘HEAT@HOME’ idea during the last lockdown when our friends at BROWNE’S in Tuam provided a wonderful service every weekend by chilling some of their wonderful Bistro style dishes and accompanied them with easy instructions for heating at home. We loved the idea and at a time when we can’t host our own customers at Cafe Rua, we hope that we can provide a similar service for them.

For now, we are doing Friday collections only. Ordering is available each week from Sunday evening until midnight on Wednesday, unless we sell out before then. Our menu has an option of 2 mains, and 2 desserts and is priced at €23 per person. We also have an option for a bottle of our house wines, both of which are organic.

The menu changes each week, and we’re keeping it simple to start. We hope to add other day availability and menu choices as we develop the idea. We are happy to take orders over the phone on 094 9023376 from 9am – 4pm each day, but you can also order online HERE.

Our first menu launches on Monday 19th October and has main choices of Roast Irish Chicken with a tarragon, onion and mushroom gravy or a lovely Cafe Rua Fish pie, with sides of potato and celeriac gratin, plus roast roots with some wild garlic butter. Dessert this week is our bread and butter pudding with custard or a raspberry ripple panna cotta.

Shakshuka Kit

Perfect if you are missing your weekend brunch buzz

A Middle Eastern style tomato, roast pepper & paprika stew… and you can just add eggs for a really tasty breakfast, brunch, lunch or tea.

The kit includes:

  • a pot of Shakshuka,
  • 6 free range eggs,
  • a pot of Velvet Cloud yoghurt,
  • a bunch of coriander
  • a pack of flatbread wraps

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make

  1. pour your pot of Shakshuka into a pan or saucepan and heat gently ..add a small cup of water to this in the pan.
  2. when heated make a couple of small ‘wells’ in the sauce
  3. break an egg into a cup and drop the egg carefully into a well. Repeat with as many eggs as you’d like to add.
  4. keep the pan on the heat and cook for a few more minutes until the eggs poach in the sauce … until the whites are just set and the yolks a little runny (or however you like your eggs cooked)
  5. once it’s cooked you can add a variety of different toppings ..we have added some Velvet Cloud yoghurt, coriander, black bean rayu and some smoked chilli (for an extra kick!).

But you can also add feta… or just as it is.
