Bugis+ Food Trail 2013: Ireland's Potato

Ireland's Potato is an intriguing name. Questions that ran through the mind, like "Did they import the potatoes from Ireland or is this a franchise that originated from there or...?"

There was a Great Famine between 1845 and 1852 in Ireland, and outside of Ireland this famine is known as the "Irish Potato Famine". This showed the dependancy on potatoes even then. After the famine, potato remained as Ireland's staple crop. Wiki info here.

According to Ireland's Potato website, it is this Irish passion and appreciative attitude towards the potato that inspired the brand. Wow.
