The Rugby World Cup comes around every 4 years and Dandelion Social will be likely packed to the rafters for all the major matches.

Sarah, the owner of Dandelion Social, is a rugby nut. Her brother has just represented Ireland in the U20 World Championship in Argentina, and let’s just say she’s likely to be wearing green come September.

Dandelion Social opened recently on Wynnum Road in Morningside and has had rave reviews ever since. Wholesome meals are designed to fill you up, complemented by everything from Guinness to 150 Lashes to great coffee and teas.

Hearty breakfasts on the menu include the likes of the Full Irish (bacon, eggs, sausages, white and black pudding, mushrooms, tomato, beans, potato cake and traditional soda bread served with tea or coffee). You can also get a taste of their delicious lunches such as the Beef Baguette (slow braised beef served with sautéed mushrooms and onion in a creamy peppercorn sauce served in a freshly baked baguette). 

Dinner options like The Dandelion Social Ploughmans Platter, Marinated Pork, Slow Braised Beef Ragout and Crusted Barramundi Pistachio as well as an interesting vegetarian option: Middle Eastern Spiced Pumpkin with wild rice, Quinoa, Feta, Pomegranate and baby herbs are sure to satisfy the palate.

Sarah’s fantastic eatery also welcomes dogs in the outdoor area and is very wheelchair accessible from the rear entrance.

So look no further for the place to watch the Rugby World Cup in Tokyo when it kicks off on September 20. Japan being an hour behind Brisvegas means that kick off times will be 2:45 p.m / 5:15 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. our time, ideal for sinking a few pints and soaking up the atmosphere. 

Expect Green and Gold and the Irish Greens to not be the only representation. There are plenty of English, Scots, South Africans as well as the no doubt all-dominant All Black fans. It is going to be a massive event and Michael Cheika generally gets the Wallabies up for the big one.

In the meantime, if you fancy a good hearty meal with portions that will leave you full or a decent pint of Guinness, head over to Dandelion Social.
