Beware: if you don’t know about onion rings, you might become totally addicted! It’s a typically Anglo-Saxon speciality that the Irish love! Served in most of the country’s fast foods, but also in Irish Pubs, onion rings are onions fried in a doughnut paste… They are shaped like a circle, eaten with fingers, and are usually dipped in a sauce… A bit caloric, but let’s face it : it’s a DE-LI-CE ! !
The onion rings, are usually circular in shape, and are eaten with a little ketchup or spicy sauce. Considered as a kind of hors d’oeuvre or starter, Irish people are used to nibble them as an aperitif, with a pint of beer…
Very economical, they generally cost less than 2/3€ per ten, and are appreciated for their crispness and the light acidity of the onion.
Note that many supermarkets also sell them in bags, but fresh onion rings are often much better! Same thing: Irish fast foods usually offer them (mainly Burger King and Supermac’s), as well as many shops selling fish and chips!
To be tasted at least once in your life: it’s worth the detour!
Although a little fatty, it will be the occasion to get rid of your guilt afterwards by continuing with an afternoon of exploration of Ireland: you will be able to say goodbye to calories!
