Lifesaving Sandwiches for Dubliners thanks to ‘The Sambo Ambo’

by Amy Rohu

If you are looking for a delicious lunch option in the Dublin 8 area then look no further then ‘The Sambo Ambo’.

The converted ambulance claims to serve ‘lifesaving sambos’ at its current location is outside The Iveagh Market on Francis Street. When asked why the Sambo Ambo was set up, head of the venture Marcus O’Laoire said ‘we set up the Sambulance Ambulance to turn a bad situation into something fun and good and to make people happy. So far it seems to be working’.

After taking a break for a few months the sambulance is back and ready to meet all your cheesy sandwich needs. 

When the pandemic began last year, the people behind the Antisocial bar in Dublin 8, found themselves suddenly without work. ‘Everyone involved with Sambo Ambo has had their lives turned upside down last year. We all worked at events, as DJs, festival organisers and party promoters and also in hospitality at the bar’. 

They decided to put their skills together and create something to adapt to the challenges faced as a result of the last year and because everyone loves a good sandwich, it was sure to be a success. ‘There are very few troubles in the world that can’t be fixed with bread, butter and melted cheese’. 

They have only been in this location for the last week and already they have seen overwhelming success. You can find them their everyday between 12pm – 4pm and check out their Instagram page here for more details.
