We finally went to the Epicurean Foodhall off Abbey St. tonight after some last minute Christmas shopping. We had heard that there’s a Mexican place there. It’s called Taco Taco, and for Ireland it’s pretty authentic. We had a couple molletes (Mexican sandwiches) which were pretty tasty, but the most exciting discovery was a rack of Mexican foodstuffs.If you look closely you can see bags of Maseca masa harina. For €14. That’s $21. We actually found some “maize flour” at a Chinese grocery of all places for much cheaper, but the existence of actual masa harina in Dublin is very exciting. I asked one of the workers if I could find dried chiles in Dublin and he drew me a map to a gourmet grocery that has “everything to make mole.” We think it’s Fallon and Byrne on Exchequer St. We’ll find out soon. Very soon.
