    If you like pitta bread and live in Cork City you gotta try Izz Cafe's pitta bread - divine - I get it with hummus.

    There's very good Syrian flatbread available in Cork. The Alternative Bread Company in The English Market sell it.
    Really good and great value.

    Yeah, that's a very nice flatbread. Love it.

    I got some of the rye bread from Pana yesterday (was it you that recommended it TBR?). Anyway, it is very good! Bought a half loaf, they sliced it for me. €3.20 I think?

    Had it with tuna salad. Yum!

    It was someone else recommended it, I had it and confirmed the fact.
    I'm addicted to it now. It freezes very well.

    Love TABC - not had that but the Izz one is wow.. when they serve it, its like a balloon.. freshly baked.. doesn't get much better..

    But must get one from TABC - would be handy to have at home.

    Oh, flatbread is so much better eaten fresh. Definitely.

    But do try Ahmed's (? name) flatbread.

    Both white and wholegrain. It's not made by TABC, they just sell it. He also sells it to restaurants.

  • Had to use up some stuff or it'd go off, getting rid of leftovers.

    your baby spuds look lovely and buttery...

    we eat a lot of them in this house - they are so handy (and tasty {esp when roasted in the oven})




  • If I'm roasting/baking baby potatoes, I use the air fryer myself, just the right size and seems to get crispier results, if that's what you're after. Those ones above were just boiled, then tossed with some shallot oil and salt/pepper before firing on to the place. Not much f*cking around with them. As you say, they're very handy and give good results.

    we don't have an air fryer, but we usually steam em for a while then chop em up, oil and season and bung em in the over until crisp.. lovely and mushy on the inside, crispy on the out.. hmm.. the overall success depends on the quality of the spud though




  • Leftovers from yesterday’s bbq.

    Bavette steak sandwich

  • Smoked mackerel (Hederman’s, pure treat!), with a dressed salad of roasted peppers, radish, lettuce, cucumber, beetroot, tomato. Very tasty indeed

    hmm it is a pure treat - so €€ - we get their smoked salmon on occasion..

    The mackerel are way cheaper than the salmon. 5 euro for two.




  • Pot noodle.
    Haven't had one in years and I know I'll suffer for it but just had a longing for processed salty junk food.

    Bombay Bad Boys for me ;)

    Have to replace the sodium they removed a few years back, so I add sambal oelek/fish sauce/soy sauce.




  • Going to have to take this thread away for a deep clean I’m afraid. Pot Noodles, two of you! ;)




  • Croque Monsieur from St Germain in Malahide

    I'm sorry, I will try harder next time but in fairness sometimes you just have to get down and dirty. :-)

    I did add my own soy sauce if that helps..

    Group Buy!

    I have had many, many brands of instant noodles of varying flavours and quality over the years.
    I'm pretty sure that I have never had an actual Pot Noodle.

    If I'm going to eat highly processed and flavoured carbohydrates, I want ones marketed mostly at Asian people, for some reason.

    I insist that you try. Thank me later..




  • Mussels in white wine, chilli, garlic and cream sauce with crusty bread and focaccia.

    And a glass of white wine to wash it down (sure it’s a bank holiday).

  • Half a toastie from Margadh in Howth, post cliff walk and two scoops of gelato for dessert.

    Very sad the little tea-room that used to be in that space has gone :(




  • F*cking hell, Awec, that looks good.

    My freezer defrosted a little by mistake, so I've been eating prawns all weekend as they have to be used up (shelling and deveining a few score prawns is a pain in the hoop, but very worth it). Final lunch, very garlicky prawns on sourdough toast. Just as well I'm not in the office tomorrow, going to be radioactive.

  • I had some lentil pate and some houmous left over, so had that on some crisp bread with a side salad. While sitting in the sun in my back garden and reading a good book - perfect lunch break!

  • Bit of a salad buzz lately, been having it a good bit for lunch. Chicken, beetroot, greens, pomegranite, pumpkin seed, blue cheese, few cherry tomatoes included for herself. Can't stand them myself.

  • Spaghetti aglio e olio. Love this stuff, so light and easy.

    Aldi chillis though are disappointingly mild. Even with the seeds left in :(
