Kai retains prestigious Food award
After just two years in business one Galway eatery continues to cement its place as one of the best restaurants in the country.
For the second year running Kai Cafe and restaurant has been selected by the critically aclaimed McKennas guide and named as on of the “100 Best restaurants in Ireland 2013” with the couple describing Kai as “Utterly delicious cooking, served with style in a great room”.
About the restaurant the McKenna’s said that Kai is a destination that takes your breath away: “One minute they were open, the next minute they were famous, and everyone wanted to get a table”.
Last year the restaurant attracted a host of awards from the McKenna’s guide including the commendation of being named as the Best Restaurant in Ireland.
This year the eatery has been noted as one of the top 10 social media players leading the way for other restaurants in the country, while continuing to demonstrate a progressive and dynamic approach to the food business.
The food at Kai is described in the guide by highlighting the talents of owner and head chef Jess Murphy: “Jess Murphy’s food has real pizazz. The flavours just jump off the plate and bounce around your taste buds delightedly”.
The prestigious awards are recognised in the industry as an indication of excellence, and quality highlighting only the most creative, dynamic, and original restaurants in the country.
Owned by David and Jessica Murphy, the pair transformed a one time flower shop to a bohemian food heaven, that continues to attract national and international critique.
The restaurant prides itself on using local suppliers and showcasing local produce, and is described well by the McKenna’s guide stating: Kai is “beautifully curated, with a roll call of the best West Coast suppliers, assisting the Murphy’s as they make their unique magic”.
