Chimac, Dublin | Chew The Fat Series 3, Episode 9

In this week’s episode of Chew The Fat – our podcast sponsored by Marks & Spencer, celebrating 40 years in Ireland! – we’re back in the big smoke, taking a table at one of Dublin’s most eagerly-awaited new openings, Chimac on Aungier Street, Dublin.

Chimaek (치맥) is a South Korean institution, an industry that’s been created from a pleasingly simple, classic combination of fried chicken and beer, but within there’s a complex flavour pairing (crisp, spicy, sharp, soft, hoppy, yeasty, crunchy, refreshing) and something actually quite addictive. The phenomenon is seen across Seoul and beyond and began as little chicken shops serving beer alongside, the name being a portmanteau of the two very components: chikin (치킨) and maekju (맥주).
