The Irish Times latest restaurant review of The Fumbally Stables documents the shifting trend in Dublin’s restaurant culture. Today more than ever restaurant goers are looking for “healthy” meals on a night out.
The success of restaurants like The Fumbally Stables and The Happy Pear emphasize the ever growing health conscious consumer in 2015. New businesses should take note when designing their menu.
The Health buzz seems to be the new thing, I mean Pearse Street Dart Station is now stackin’ “Pressed Juices.”On one level, this movement is welcomed, what with obesity and all that jazz, the health revolution can only be of benefit, right?
Yet, one can’t discount the research conducted by Harvard Medshowing that people who think they’re eating healthy tend to over consume far more food and excess calories than if they know that they’re eating something Deep-Fried & Greasy.
So therefore I welcome the healthy-restaurant trend with caution, as long as people aren’t duped into a false sense of being healthy while gorging on bowls of “Quinoa” and “Goji Berries” like the Fat-free movement of the 80s & 90s.
Although, I dont think this is the case with places like the Fumbally Stables, there is real substance to what they’re doing and its somewhere I can’t wait to visit!
