Cantina flying at Topaz Dublin Airport

Cantina, Ireland’s authentic Mexican street food experience, has opened at Topaz Dublin Airport. Following a €100,000 investment, the latest Cantina has created four new jobs at the site.

In just over a year since the first Cantina launched in Galway, the brand has transformed the landscape of local Mexican food experiences for Irish consumers.

The first food outlet of its kind on Irish forecourts, commuters and employees of Dublin Airport will now have the opportunity to take a bite out of Mexico right on their doorstep.

Cantina-12The Cantina menu consists of some of Mexico’s favourites, like the taco: made from fresh, soft shelled taco’s which can be filled with an option of Chorizo Con Carne, Beef Barbacoa, Chicken Asada, or a delicious vegetarian option with fresh guacamole.

The sauces made fresh from fresh base ingredients create flavours ranging from the mild (Pico de Gallo) to the eye watering (SALSA BANDIDO – extremely hot) and are a feature of the menu in their own right.

MJ Tierney, head of marketing at Topaz said: “This is a really exciting time for Topaz and I am delighted to be here today to launch our newest Cantina which is bringing four new jobs to our service station here at Dublin Airport. With Cantina, we set out to deliver an experience that holds true to a country renowned for some of the best food in the world.

“Over the past year, we have seen a tremendous response to the Cantina menu and we can’t wait to continue to spread the full Mexican street food experience across Ireland in 2017. I’d like to extend my thanks to all involved in the development of Cantina at Dublin airport and wish our store manager Elaine and our new colleagues the very best of luck.”

The brand is also taking to social media with the handle @CantinaIE on Instagram/Twitter and CantinaIreland on Facebook. Topaz said further locations planned for Cantina in 2017 will be revealed over the coming weeks.
