Where to Eat Authentic Chinese Food in Dublin City

  • Tue, 12 Feb 2019

There’s a whole host of different cuisines to choose from across DublinTown. One of them being deliciously authentic Chinese Food.

It’s deeply unfortunate that we as a nation fall victim of considering a 3 in 1 with chicken balls to be Chinese Food, and we’re not saying it’s not delicious and what the doctor ordered at 4am, but let’s be frank, it’s not Chinese in any way shape or form.

Authentic Chinese food is bursting with flavour and spice, it’s wonderfully varied and leaves you feeling as if your mouth has traveled to the country itself. We’re lucky enough in Dublin to have more than a few delectable authentic Chinese restaurants in our humble city. So why not leave the soggy rice and chips behind and check out one of these deadly restaurants.
