I’ve decided to make a list of some restaurants we have been to over the years and are some of my favorites!
Jo Burger – To me this is the best burger in Dublin, and I have a series hatred of Bunsen (its greasy, hipster and all round shite), but Jo Burger is my No 1 for burgers. Standard being the beef burger with avocado, blue cheese and a side of bush fries with satay mayo ❤
FX Buckley – We have had food here a couple of times, and most recently we went for Dublin lunch with my parents. When I made the booking I was asked if anyone wanted a roast dinner and they kept a few aside for us. I got it, and at €17 it was amazing. Massive plate of roast beef with all the trimmings.
EDEN Bar & Grill – We’ve been here a couple of times over the years and is a really great choice for a varied menu. In the times I’ve been there, I’ve had the chicken, steak and duck & blue cheese pizza. Every time the food and the cocktails have been very good.
Shanahan’s On The Green – We went here recently for Sean’s birthday and got their Pre-Theatre three-course menu for €55. The food was outstanding (and super rich) – I don’t think I’ve ever been as full. We got salmon and soup for starters, followed by sirloin steak and sides (onion rings, chips, mash & creamed spinach).
The Greenery – One of our locals for brunch, its a cute little cafe in Portobello that never disappoints. Everything on the menu is fantastic
FoodGame – This little place is around the corner from work and is really nice for breakfast or brunch. Their scones are amazing and they also do fantastic soups/sandwiches for lunch.
Bibi’s – Closer to home, we have been to Bibi’s a couple of times over the years and it has started to get busier in recent times due to Dublin 8 turning into a hipster hotspot. Strongly recommend avocado toast or the poached eggs. Their scones are a bit crap as they are teeny tiny and not worth the prices.
Pickle Restaurant – We were here recently for a birthday lunch and got the early bird menu. The food was unbelievable – everything was unbelievably fresh, and I could have had about three plates of the prawn starters!
Konkan – We are lucky enough to have this as a local on Clanbrassil Street and is one of the best Indians in Dublin, At least once a month we would get their €13 meal deal, which comes with starter, main course, rice & naan bread. We have had dinner in the restaurant a couple of times and its one of my favourite places.
The Port House Pintxo – We went here years ago on our very first date, and it was the first time I had been for tapas. It has become my favourite place in Dublin for Tapas and love the restaurant in Temple Bar. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu.
Paulies Pizza – Best pizza in Dublin ❤
Passion4Food – Right beside us is possible the best kebab place in Dublin (according to Dublin Kebab Club). I never liked kebabs until I went here last year, and I’ve been back a couple of times since either for the kebab, or just the naan bread & hummus which is lovely,
Beshoff Bros – Best battered sausage and chips ever. In college I used to happily drive out to Howth for that and take a stroll around the town.
