So most of the other regions have their definitive list of takeaways/restaurants, and I do believe Monaghan has some of the best places to eat in Ireland!!
Feel free to add to the below list..and argue!
Pizza D'or-Best pizza in Ireland-FACT. (delivers to Town only)
Located at entrance to most popular nightclub, it does a tidy trade weekend nights, and is always full on a Sunday evening! Pizza Hot undoubtedly the best, although I have a weak spot for the Hawaiin and Pepperoni. The only thing they lack is a seating area for eating in.
Master Deery's-Restauarant and Bar Food
Steak is good, they really took advantage of the squealing pig shutting down. The steak is excellent, and menu choice wide and varied. They will also usually make up any special requests. Place is always heaving on weekends, with good service and a good vibe. Place to go!!
Eastern Balti-Indian Restaurant/Takeaway
There was some discussion on Trip Advisor that this could be the best Indian food in Ireland..I don't like spicy food, or strange food in general, but I LOVE this Indian. The interior is gorgeous, attention to detail second to none. The bathrooms are a must-see. Now there have been problems, as it is so busy, they have a bad habit of rushing peple and asking them to move when their meal is finished. Related to this is that you are most likely going to be waiting a long time before you are seated, and longer before you will actually be eating. The portions are ok, enough to fill you, but never be stuffed! I have to admit,,I have been sick twice after this restaurant, but I still go back. Is it that I can't be sure it's the food? Is it the free drink at the end of your meal? Or is it that my sister won't eat anywhere else? I'll leave it up to you to decide.
Andy's Bar and Restaurant
This place is adorned with prizes for best restaurant, best food blah blah. I used to work here, and as a consequence to that, havn't stepped foot in it since! I hear the food is nice though.
Mr K's Chinese-Restaurant and Take-Away
This is my Chinese of choice, it is well maintained, looks good with nioce decor. Food is good-not as good as it used to be, but still ok. Chinese tastes the same everywhere??
Other Chineses- I don't eat in so will rely on others for their opinions.
Newly open Italian, I wasn't terribly impressed to be honest. Menu very small, and comes in a document holder that you wouldn't hand up a project in. The tables are all crammed together, and service was very slow when we were there, but to be fair, someone had called in sick. The food when it arrived did taste fabulous, but this may be due to the deep frying and layers of sauce more so than any cooking expertise. Desserts nice, I probably won't be back, as other places are just better.
Best chips in Ireland-FACT. Although very pricey!! If you are going to treat yourself to a big bag of chips, look no further. Absolutely jammed every day of the year, they don't even bother opening for the nightclub/bar trade because they do so well. Chicken burgers are my favourite, as well as all the usual suspects.
Tommy's Take Away and Diner/Restaurant
Wouldn't really call it a restaurant, more so a diner for a good hearty feed.
Tommy's has an advantage over it's Monte neighbours in that you can sit down and eat a good feed, including lasagnes, goujons etc etc.
