    Where's the best place to eat in the city that I can get to and back up Patrick's hill in an hour? It's just getting really boring. We either go to Luciano's, The old oak, Shelbourne or Cafe Mexicana. Bare in mind that we reeeally don't want to spend more than 7euros for lunch.

    Dan Lowreys on McCurtain St (next to the Shelbourne) has always done pretty nice lunches. Haven't et in the Met for a while, but that's worth a try too I guess.

    Here, you can't be comin' in here askin' questions you know. You might distract people from the dozen or so I asked. :)

    Currans (it's on some side street off North Main St.) down near Le Cheile (sp?). Great food. I recommend the Cajun chiken bagette (sp? again)

    Oz is quite nice too.

    On the subject of food, it has to be said that the burgers in Manhatten Joe's on Oliver Plunkett Street are the job.

    Currans is yummy and has already been mentioned, the Cajun Chicken Baguette is delish man!

    I was at Zanzibar last Friday night and thought the food was very nice and you got a large enough serving. It might be a tad more expensive, perhaps 10 euro.

    You can get to subway and back in an hour no bother. I did it alot of the time when I was in bruce without walking at any kind of quick pace.

    You think?
    We went there for lunch one day a while back. My burger was pretty well burnt and my friends chicken breast or whatever it was was uncooked. She brought it back and they said it was grand, so the service isn't much cop either.

    Kafka's = worst food place ever?

    Ahh I dunno if its the worst ever... Haven't been in there for an age though. They have lovely food, especially those HUGE sandwiches, but the one thing I found is that they do get a rather odd crowd in there sometimes. That may have fizzled out by now... or maybe I'm just getting old and less accomodating


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,025 ✭✭✭yellum


    I agree Kold. **** food and **** service really.

    I don't know Rebecca Loos but I hope she dies.

    Tried Manhattan Joes on Wed, no way that's reachable. Was Ok I suppose.

    Some people like to take their time eating.
    Sign of a good shagger apparently ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,778 ✭✭✭✭Kold


    I like to think so anyway.. And top of Patricks Hill to Manhattan Joes, waiting for food and walking back up takes more than an hour.

  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,256 ✭✭✭Molly


    I never ran anywhere for lunch and i nor anyone in my group of friends had a problem making it to subway and back whilst eating our food there during the hour.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,778 ✭✭✭✭Kold

    You steal it.

    Since when do students "do lunch"? Shouldn't you be asking where the nearest pub with student discounts is?
