Upon returning,the pair established Blasta Street Kitchen, simple ,exciting street food, using the best of Irish Produce. After a successful first few years in business, Blasta Street Kitchen had numerous awards,plenty of national media coverage , and even a Guinness world record under their belt.

Our Story

We’ve all been there. Mealtimes roll around and there’s so much going on that you just grab whatever is quick. Except, what’s quick isn’t always the best for us right? There always seems to be a compromise. Why Compromise? I was convinced that there doesn’t need to be a trade-off. Food that’s quick and easy can be delicious. It can be created naturally with real food that we know and love instead of artificial flavours. And most of all, real authentically healthy and convenient food should be accessible by all.
