MIEKO KING RESTAURANT – THE RUMOURS ARE TRUE – THEY ARE OFFERING A COLLECTION SERVICE AND A SPECIAL HOME DELIVERY SERVICE
It has always been my policy to support local businesses and I am aware that many local restaurants need all the support that they can get. I hope that you will support Mieko King.
Because of my age I am confined to my apartment until Easter Sunday … of course this is going to be extended. I was preparing for this lockdown but I was caught be surprise as it happened about a week earlier than I had expected.
I had been advised that I needed to shop online for groceries or arrange home deliveries from local restaurants.
Before I continue I should mention that many restaurants have terrible sites that get in the way of placing an order. At least five would not accept or confirm my address and could not deal with my Eircode address. Two restaurants decided that my mobile location was my actual physical address [Apt 43 instead of 29, etc]
I contacted Tesco mid last week and was informed that the first delivery slot was 2nd April. The next slots I was able to book was April 6 and April 14. As I have a very small fridge this was not practical on an ongoing basis as I need a delivery every three days.
Today the queue for slots was two weeks and some of my friends told me that they had to wait three weeks. Eventually I managed to find two suitable suppliers “The Fruit People” and “Station To Station”. I received my first delivery of six bottles of wine from Station To Station. I will discuss these and a few other suppliers at a later date.
I have organised deliveries from a number of restaurants and have encountered a number of problems with some and a few have been exceptional and I will discuss them at a later date.
Today I was in contact with Jenny at Mieko King at 101 Capel Street because I heard a rumour that they were planning a home delivery service that would for people such as myself and she confirmed that the rumour was true and she sent me a copy of the menu.
Based on past experience I can guarantee that their food is excellent.

LION DANCE ON CAPEL STREET – MIEKO KING RESTAURANT
Sorry about the quality of the photographs but I only had a point and shoot camera that does not work well in low light.
Yesterday I attended a lecture at the TU college campus and it was mentioned that there is now a Chinatown in Dublin [Capel Street and Parnell street]. I don’t agree with the description as many [if not the majority] of the restaurants are not Chinese but it is possible that most of the buildings are owned by Chinese landlords. For example the owners of the Mieko King at 101 Capel Street Restaurant are Vietnamese but by the same token there is a Japanese Restaurant owned by a Chinese couple.
Today I was walking along Capel Street on my way to the Hungry Mexican on Aston Quay but as I was passing the Mieko King at 101 on Capel Street I was invited in as they were expecting Lion Dancers to arrive within ten minutes and sure enough they did arrive. Later I mentioned this to my ninety year old aunt and she could not understand why there would be Line Dancing in an Asian restaurant.
