BuJo In Sandymount Is Awarded Bord Bia Just Ask Restaurant Of The Month
BuJo (‘Burger Joint’) has been awarded Just Ask Restaurant of the Month for February. Selected by renowned food writer Georgina Campbell and Bord Bia, the Just Ask Restaurant of the Month rewards eateries across Ireland that exhibit best practices in showing transparency in the sourcing of the food on their menus.
BuJo is a fast casual restaurant that has a slow food ethos beating at its sustainable and eco-friendly heart. The menu boards and supplier information are flagged big and bold on the walls and its clear to see that a lot of thought has been given to every aspect of this restaurant. All the beef used in the burgers is grass-fed and sourced from Bord Bia Quality Assured Irish farmers such as Jimmy Hennessy in Charleville, Co Cork. The bacon comes from Luke Bogue’s rare breed Hampshire pigs in Ballyjamesduff, Co Cavan, while the sweetly soft burger buns come from Coghlan’s Bakery in Newbridge, Co Kildare. Chips are made only with Irish potatoes (as the season permits) and are triple cooked, skin on using GMO free rapeseed oil. Speciality milkshakes are hand spun using ice cream from Coolhull Farm in Co. Wexford and preservative and additive free cordials are from Bord Bia Origin Green champions Glenilen Farm in west Cork. The choices are very simple with just a few options for burgers and fries. But the chargrilled Irish beef burgers, created by respected executive chef & BuJo's Culinary Director Gráinne O’Keefe, are no ordinary burgers. And, while fans flock here for the beef burgers, vegetarian and vegan burgers are also available. Attention to detail is also seen in BuJo’s firm commitment to sustainability - the only burger-centric restaurant in all of Ireland & the U.K. to achieve a Three Star rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association.
