Some things are sacrosanct in this life and should not be changed. Oftentimes, these treats become institutions in their own right - revered, but also very personal and often disputed.
One such treat is the unassuming, but incredibly satiable Spice Bag. This fusion of spice and carbs has risen to meteoric heights and is one of Ireland's most loved guilty pleasures. Spice Bag worshipers can be identified by their unfleeting loyalty and willingness to argue till they are blue in the face when questioned on where Ireland's best Spice Bag is from. The Spice Bag has established itself as one of those sacred things that should be left well alone.
Until now. Deliveroo has given the humble Spice Bag notions.
Deliveroo is teaming up with exclusive restaurant partner, Hang Dai on Dublin's Camden Street to cultivate and assemble the World's Most Luxurious Spice Bag. Forget affordability and simple pleasures. This bag of dreams will bring together some of the most decadent herbs and spices known to man from across the world.
Deliveroo's Joe Groves said: "At Deliveroo we always like to challenge the norm and this is one of the most risky and exciting endeavours! This Spice Bag is going to be unlike anything witnessed or tasted before. We have worked closely with Hang Dai's Head Chef, Karl Whelan to use the rarest ingredients, to bring this pioneering creation together".
Ingredients in the world's most expensive spice bag include: Lobster Balls, Scallops, XL Gambas, Red Mullet, Foie Gras Dumplings, Truffle Pomp Dauphine, Oyster Tempura, Asparagus Truffle Spring Rolls, Chicken Lollipops and Langoustine in Katafr. The Spice Bag is crowned with a Garnish Salad of Chilli, Onion, Fennel, Heirloom Carrots and Kale.
Hang Dai's Head Chef Karl Whelan said: "Regardless of luxurious ingredients, it's how you fuse and marry them that's so important. We have made sure to work the ingredients in a way that brings out the most incredible flavours. Without completely forgetting it's humble roots, the World's Most Luxurious Spice Bag retains the unique taste and mix that people love. I promise, when you taste this Spice Bag, you will never forget it", he said.
With such difficult to source ingredients and pain-staking labour, the World's Most Luxurious Spice Bag is limited edition. With a €100 price tag, the spicy price gives you every entitlement to plan your whole week/ weekend around embarking on this insane and notion - filled taste journey. Hang Dai's luxe spice bag will launch on January 29th and will be available while stocks last.
