Bunga Bunga is the brainchild of childhood friends Peter McGreevy and Aidan O'Donohoe.

Speaking to 98FM.com, McGreevy says: "After coming back from London to do a Masters, Aidan was annoyed with the lack of options available to him when it came to lunch or dinner on the go.

"It seemed like toasted sambos and converted horse boxes selling coffee was all he could find."

O'Donohoe turned to McGreevy, having previously worked as a food vendor at Coachella for advice.

Together, they restored their 1975 Renault Estafette to house Bunga Bunga, where they now sell high quality Italian food on the go.

"We consulted with the top Italian and Irish food producers to develop our dishes," McGreevy explains.

All of Bunga Bunga's pasta is handmade and fresh - on the menu currently? Cacio e pepe, vegan sweet pomodoro and the Bunga Bunga.

The Bunga Bunga is the biggest hit with customers - a creamy sauce with pork & nduja sausage inspired by a Calabrian classic.

"We see a lot of people go for that if they're looking for something hearty," McGreevy says.

"It's based on an old farmer's dish, a filling meal before you work on the farm for the day, so we're seeing people come down and order it after a heavy night," O'Donohoe laughs.

If you fancy a side, you can also get some burrata from this weekend.

Keep your eyes peeled for more new additions coming later this year!

Bunga Bunga is open 12:30-8, Friday to Sunday at The View, Malahide Marina.
