From the Archives: Legendary Queens of Cinema Visit Yamamori


In its many years situated in the heart of Dublin, Yamamori has had many amazing visitors - and a few of cinema’s leading ladies are true highlights.

Meryl Streep herself stopped by Yamamori on George’s Street while filming ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ in Ireland (her first shoot in the country), back in 1997. The Sunday World (24 August 1997) caught an exclusive photo of Streep while she dined at Yamamori, before shopping at Westbury Mall. According to Sunday World’s Siobhan Hegarty, Streep loved Dublin: “The stunning actress has become so fond of the city she has moved her family to [the] city for the duration of her movie shoot..”

And #TBT to when the legendary Anjelica Huston dropped by the South City Noodles location on George’s Street and sang our praises: “Thank you for the divine ramen!” (And thank you, Anjelica, for two of the greatest cult favourite matriarchs in film history, Morticia Addams and Etheline Tenenbaum!)
