Musunderstood Heron

Archive - all the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

The blackboard menu at Kim and Reynaldo’s Misunderstood Heron food cart offers mussels with lamb; smoked salmon with pickles; pasties and quiches; coriander felafel with yogurt; and sweet things like blueberry cake, or apple pies, and perfectly curated Cloudpicker coffee. And here’s the thing: whatever you order will be delightful and delicious, and will demonstrate culinary exactitude and instinct, the work of a dynamic couple who really know their stuff. On any given day, you sit outside the truck at a picnic table, staring down the mouth of Ireland’s only fjord, and you thank your lucky stars that you are in Connemara, eating cooking of such simple excellence. You might  call it Fjord Food but, really, what you get at Misunderstood Heron is simply Fantastic Food.
