Over the last 8 months we have made many new friends, created beautiful new dishes, and explored the amazing produce we have here in the West of Ireland.
Kai has not yet made its way through all 4 seasons, but so far we have had a menu bursting with incredible forage, and the freshest farm grown vegetables, meat, fish, and fruit. It goes to show that even in winter there is no need for us to stick solely to meat and spuds, not that there is anything wrong with that!
Morning, and afternoon coffee time at Kai always warms our hearts, with the fire raging and friendly faces having their regular coffee we are humbled by the space we provide to mothers and children, doctors and lawyers, students and teachers.
They say one happy customer will put a smile on the face of 10, who will all with time return. This year we seem to have pleased many of the reviewers and critics, and have received much media attention and award nominations.
The café and restaurant has created a buzz - but that is not about the food. It is true we pride ourselves on our food, but the reaction of our customers is what attracts the reviewers and critics. Without you guys coming in everyday and enjoying our food, none of the reviewers would know about us.
We would like to thank all of you for your custom, and for telling the critics to come, thanks also the critics for telling others to come.
Taking a chance in a recession to start a new business is an incredibly frightening place to be, but our customers have shown us that we were right, and we will continue in the same vein.
The team at Kai hope to put on a number of exciting foodie events over the coming months, and we hope you will all join us.
If any of you ever have any feedback for us please drop us a line.
May 2012 be abundant and prosperous for everyone.
