Wrangler Kiez has another cosy little restaurant on offer and this one is a pure labour of love. The aptly named Ragù opened its kitchen in summer 2015 with one ideal in mind…to make really, really good ragù (that’s a Neapolitan meat stew to the uninitiated).
The co-founders – Andy and Marc – are champions of the slow food movement. The philosophy is obvious in their fine ingredients (Provolone di Monaco, aged for 13 months, vine ripened Pomodorini del Piennolo from Mount Vesuvius, and dry-cured Capocollo pork) and the care they take over their ragù, which is slowly cooked for more than 6 hours, with lip-smacking results.
While Ragù’s passion obviously lies in meat stew, vegetarian’s are also very welcome, with delicious salads, pastas and antipasti on offer. There is also real Italian coffee, tasty treats and a selection of beautiful, handmade woollen shawls for sale, as Ragù’s co-founders are also wool worshippers, hosting community knitting events and spinning their own yarn!
€5 food: A ‘1/2 portion’ of pasta with tasty ragù sauce and parmesan is just €5 – a great cheap eat
‘€5 ‘fullness’: The half portion pasta & meat combo will fill you up, especially at lunchtime
€5 change: None, particularly if you order an Italian espresso to top off your hearty meal
