Abrakebabra, the Irish kebab chain, has opened a new restaurant on Grafton Street.
The new Abrakebabra features 80 seats upstairs and pays homage to the brand’s original retro branding from the eighties.
Abrakebabra’s menu includes a wide range of kebabs, burgers, baguettes and magic bites.
From the original taco fries, there are now nine varieties of loaded fries, including new additions, such as Aussie fries, rodeo fries, katsu fries, and the new ultimate spice box.
The new opening on Grafton Street coincides with Abrakebabra’s 40th year in business.
To celebrate the official opening, Abrakebabra hosted a special in-store celebration with mentalist and brain-hacker Keith Barry.
Barry officially cut the ribbon and performed mind-bending hacks and interactive performances.
Abrakebabra Gold Card
Influencers and podcasters Charleen Murphy, Amber Arkins and Mary-Claire Fitzpatrick were all in attendance.
Dublin DJ Ciaran Flood provided the music, while nail artists from Dublin nail bar Tropical Popical adorned guests’ nails with Abrakebabra’s signature palm tree.
One attendee, Caoimhe Byrne, won an Abrakebabra Gold Card, giving her and a friend access to free food for a year.
Hollywood actor Colin Farrell once revealed on Jimmy Kimmel’s show that he is the proud owner of the “only Abrakebabra Black Card in existence”.
Farrell showed the card to the audience while promoting his film, The Batman, and said that he keeps the card in his wallet at all times.
“I was so charmed by that. I can’t tell you how giddy I was when that came in the post,” said Farrell.
