Guinness is bringing a new food festival to Dublin and we're there for the ramen

Rejoiceth ye autumn lovers, for the season of baggy clothes and comfort food has finally arrived!

High on the list of foods we cannot get enough of in this pre-hibernation period is soupy, noodly, warming ramen. And so we're very excited by the news that Northern Ireland's in-demand ramen maker Bia Rebel is migrating south for a stint in Dublin.

Bia Rebel made a name for itself among the foodie community for its ramen bowls that fuse Japanese tastes with Irish ingredients – think grilled tofu with shiitake and Atlantic sea vegetables, or a 'fry up' ramen with black pudding and bacon.

Post 2 of 3 ⠀⠀ July is almost over! That means that my trip to New York is almost at an end, and it’s back to the grind very soon. ⠀⠀ August is going to be an interesting month for Bia Rebel, with a few new and usual events coming up. ⠀⠀ First up: @alltogethernow.ie ⠀⠀ We’ll be serving some delicious Asian fusion-style food from the Airstream, but Brian and I will also be at Grub Circus talking about the business of food. Specifically, the business of food trucks. I’m going to be spending the last few days of my trip perusing the food trucks of hipster Ground Zero in Brooklyn. On our tiny green island, where it rains almost every day, it might be too much to ask for a vibrant food truck & outdoor eating culture. But I certainly would like to see more small but skilled cooks take to the roads. ? ⠀⠀ And Brian will also be doing a ramen demo. So if you want to see how the Bia Rebel magic is made and you are heading to this fantastic festival, pencil in some time during your hectic party schedule for the Theatre of Food. ? ⠀⠀ . . . . . . . #buzzfeast #eattheworld #foodgasm #foodiesofinstagram #onthetable #forkyeah #foodlover #belfastramen #noodles #thisisirishfood #cheflife #bestofbelfast #theatreoffood #grubcircus #ipreview via @preview.app

That delicious sounding offering is just one of the exciting new flavours being celebrated in the capital as part of the new Guinness 232°C festival. Curated by food writer Ali Dunworth, Guinness 232°C will challenge a selection of chefs to cook Irish beef, chicken, pork and vegetables over live fire. (Apparently 232°C is the temperature that Guinness' barley is roasted at. Who knew?)

Alongside Bia Rebel, Guinness has invited Dublin company Grálinn and Jeremy Cuevas, from Mexican pop-up food truck La Cocina Cuevas, to do a weekend take-over of three Dublin locations.

The Grálinn crew will be bringing their 'hyper local' produce – all grown in Dublin farms – to be flame grilled at Bonobo in Smithfield. Bia Rebel will be making their fresh noodles and alternative gyozas at Jam Park in Swords. And Jeremy Cuevos will be dishing out some fiery tacos city centre, at The Bernard Shaw.

To complete the sizzling line up, there will also be tunes from the likes of David Kitt, Sally Cinnamon and Sim Simma during the festival.

Tickets are €10, and include two signature dishes along with a free pint of Guinness or Pure Brew non-alcoholic lager. Pick them up here, and check out the full line-up below.
