“Our St Paddy’s Feast means Ireland’s famous tipple can be at the heart of a celebratory meal rather than a glass on the side.”

Ivan Dudak, Kitchen Operations Manager at Barburrito added: “We never stop innovating at Barburrito and loved teaming up with Uber Eats to use Guinness within one of our recipes.

“We took our beef brisket, cooked slow, with a generous glug of Guinness into a red pepper, adobo chilli and tomato sauce. The result is delicious and has quickly become a team favourite.”

The St Patrick’s Day feast will be available on the app in select areas between 16th and 18th March.
