Dublin: 16 °C Thursday 9 July, 2020

17 times Irish fast food peaked in 2016

Bon appetit.

1. Way back in January, Aaron’s Takeaway in Tipperary began 2016 as they meant to go on – with this 4ft wrap creation

It’s Ireland’s largest wrap, we understand.

2. In the same month, a Limerick chef made a leap in 2016 fusion cuisine with the bacon and cabbage chips

3. It was early this year that Walsh’s Bakehouse in Waterford invented the Blaa-guette - a hybrid of a blaa and a baguette

4. A takeaway in Tyrone introduced the “pizza munchy box” to their menu
