    My favorite place for a bite to eat is any of the Yamamori restaurants in Dublin (particularly the Sushi one on Lower Ormond Quay). Never had a bad meal there, the food is always delicious and reasonably priced, staff are friendly and attentive without being overwelming. Been going there for years.
    That said, I'm always open to other suggestions on where to go for lunch.
    So, good people of AH, what're YOUR favorite place to dine at?

    Campagne in Kilkenny.

    Order the pheasant if it's on the menu. But it doesn't matter what you order. All of it is great.

    I'm the most boring person ever when I eat out.
    Even if I'm running late or in the bathroom when it's time to order, my oh or friends can order for me without me ever seeing the menu.

    Soup to start.
    Chicken as the main.

    And a bottle of Chardonnay. I don't share my wine.

    Now that I'm trying to stop eating chicken sometimes I'll get the pasta dish or sometimes I'll get the mushrooms from the starter as the full meal.

    If it's Chinese then it's always curry with boiled rice.
    If it's Indian it's onion bajiis and mint dip, with korma, no naan.

    We repeatedly go back to Darwins on Aungier Street, both with work and socially. They do a fantastic steak, calamari rings for starter. Their service and staff are top notch.

    Beeftro on Balfe street is my new favourite place for a burger. (Holds top spot with Bunsen!)

    Imagine answering this by naming a fast food joint as your favourite place. Tsk Tsk.

    UH! so uncultured, the humanity! Could you imagine if you genuinely thought a burger chip was cuisine. Oh divine sweet merciful hour. I shudder to think of a life like that.

    Honestly, it's very hard to pick a favorite because it's all so delicious but if I was really pushed to choose, I'd say the smoked salmon and cream cheese norimaki or the Karubi beef hot pot- it's stirfried, chicken-stock infused rice with mushrooms, bock choi, onions, broccoli and Asian greens with bits of sirloin steak done to my liking (I always go medium rare) topped with a runny fried egg and chopped spring onions.

    Feck, now I'm craving it! :D

    I just get the same food everywhere, not because I don't like to taste different food but just because I love it.

    Starter is vegetable soup and main is turkey and ham. I love a chicken korma from an Indian or a chicken in back pepper sauce from the Chinese.

    I'm starving and it hurts to think of all of my favourite foods!

    Don't have a favourite restaurant as such but really love Thai and Vietnamese food in general.

    Last Thai meal I had out was tom kha gai soup for starter, followed by pork pad khing with coconut rice for the main. Last Vietnamese was veggie summer rolls for starter and Hanoi-style garlicky steak pho for main.

    Kinara in Clontarf.

    food of the gods !!

    In Cork I love the cheeseboards in Arthur Maynes. Yum yum. So much cheese. I love Orso also which is right beside Arthur Maynes. Menu always changes but my fave at the moment is this veggie bake thing. It has beetroot, squash, potato and goats cheese. Also have had lovely Monkfish there.

    My taste is probably different to most people as I don't eat meat but sometimes eat fish. Always can count on cheese though! Recently got an unreal cheeseboard in the Meatball place in Cork also. Mmm cheese.

    Don't have a single favourite, but Kimchi on Parnell St D1 is up there. It's a Korean / Japanese place, attached to a pub, not fine dining but more like classy pub grub. The Tempura prawns are great, and so is the Bulgogi Bibimbap, but the latter comes with an implied challenge: if you can't say the name, you can't have it. :cool:

    From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, ‘Look at that, you son of a bitch’.

    One Pico, Coppinger Row and Green 19 are my favouritesn Dublin that I'd go to repeatedly (although not "frequently"). The best food I've had in Ireland though was at the Strawberry Tree at Brooklodge in Wicklow.

    I would have to say Eco in Douglas in Cork.
    My favourites would be the Cajun mushrooms for starters, aubergine and tomato gratin for main, and banoffie pie for dessert.

    The Cellar Restaurant in the Merrion Hotel. Anything on the menu.

    One of many standouts was a sort of hot chocolate biscuits (Madellines?) as an after that was simply to die for.
