Are you a Stranger Things fan? Check out this Eggo-inspired feast

by Rachel Darcy

After a year and a half off our screens Stranger Things returns to Netflix this Thursday, and one Dublin restaurant has teamed up with Deliveroo for an 80’s inspired feast.

Brother Hubbard will be bringing Eggo Waffles-inspired creations to the menu on July 4 for one day only, to celebrate the release of the third season of the binge-worthy hit.

Eggo Waffles are the dish of choice of one of the show’s main characters, Eleven, who would do just about anything to get her hands on them.

Foodies and fans of Eleven and the gang can choose between a peanut & jelly waffle sandwich, an ode to all the times the characters are served up PB & Jelly on the show.

For those with more savoury tastes, there’s a dark waffle – reminiscent of the dark tones of the show’s Upside Down – topped with buttermilk fried chicken, Thousand Island Sauce and Chipotle ‘Slaw. Priced at €11 each in honour of the show’s main character, the delicious creations will be available just-in-time for your Upside Down binge session. 

Garrett Fitzgerald, Owner of Brother Hubbard said: “Some of our customers love the series and a couple of us in the restaurant do too. When Deliveroo got in touch and asked us to create exclusive treats for the series’ return, we couldn’t wait.

“We’ve created mouth-watering sweet and savoury options for Deliveroo customers. They certainly are an homage to the series and the nostalgia of it, but the waffles are also made with Brother Hubbard’s quirky flair and flavour that our customers know and love.”

Joe Groves of Deliveroo said: “We’ve been known to place some stranger things on the menu from time to time, so there’s no better time to do so than with the return of this series. 

“We believe in offering our customers the freedom to choose what they want, when they want it, and where – and we are very happy to partner with Brother Hubbard to bring customers this fabulous 80s-leaning dish, customised to their liking,” he added.

The Stranger Things-inspired waffles will be available on the Deliveroo app or website from the evening of 4th July for one week, except for Sunday and Monday.
