Get eating.

1. Coco Pop French Toast at San Lorenzo’s

San Lorenzo’s

Famous for its #brunchofchampions, this George’s St restaurant underwent a revamp last year and the result is queues out the door every weekend.

We debated about which dish was the must-eat (think Nutella cheesecake or eggs royale with caviar and champagne) but this won. It comes with salted caramelised bananas and peanut butter, and is both a beauty and a beast.

€12.95, Saturdays and Sundays 10am – 4pm.

2. Mixed Meat Plate at My Meat Wagon

My Meat Wagon

Not able to choose which smoker-cooked BBQ meat you prefer? Get ‘em all on a platter, literally.

Beef brisket, pork belly, ribs, chicken and an onion ring come with choice of two sides. We dig the slaw and hand cut chips but if you must go for even more meat, you can choose a side of sausage. Get thee to Smithfield to try this.

€17.95, open Tuesday – Sunday

3. Truffle Pasta with Charred Asparagus and Parmesan at Fade St Social

On the Tapas menu, this veggie dish is plate-licking good. Rich and creamy without being too much, it’s posh comfort food that won’t break the bank. And hey, asparagus is an aphrodisiac you know…

€9.50, daily from 5-10pm

4. Fish Finger Sandwich and chips at Super Miss Sue

SMS has a functioning chipper attached to its two restaurants. The cafe next door is famous for its oysters, but the takeaway is the most drool-inducing.

This dish consists of thick sliced bread, fish fingers, mushy peas and tartare sauce – perfection. Get it with a side of chips, and if you’re feeling wild, stick a couple in to your sarnie. GET IN.

€7, 12-12 weekdays, 12 noon-3am Friday and Saturday.

5. Jerk Chicken Salad at Staple Foods

Well known for its vegan options, Staple Foods is somewhere to grab a healthy bite in Temple Bar for lunch or an early dinner.

Not veggie but still wholesome, their Jerk Chicken salad is a thing of beauty for meat eaters mainly due to the fact that its crowned with a divine dollop of chilli jam. Lots of shredded chicken, veg and beans means it fills you up too, so it’s well worth the €10 you pay for it.

12-5pm daily.

6. Gambas Benedict at White Friar Grill

WFG is well known for both its brunch offerings and its ribs’n’ rump dinners.

The gambas at brunch is worth trying simply because it’s so unusual. Eggs Benedict with delicious prawns (with the head and tail still on), avocado salsa, wilted baby spinach and a citrusy Hollandaise, as well as a side of home fries. It hits every tastebud and then some.

€10.95, Saturday and Sunday 10.30-4pm.

7. Cheeseburger and home cut fries at Bunsen

The title of best burger in Dublin is a hotly contested one, but Bunsen cinched it because its menu revolves entirely around delicious beef patties with all the trimmings.

Choose single or double, bun or none, and a side of fries (you can get sweet potato chips too), and that’s it. Simple, yet incredibly good. We recommend going the whole hog when it comes to salad and dressing, and getting your burger well done.
Single cheesburger, €7.45. Open daily. Gluten-free bun available.

8. A 99 at Teddy’s

This Dun Laoghaire institution is known around the country for its specialty cones, and has queues even in the winter. Keep it simple with a cone with a flake and lashings of strawberry sauce.

€2.50. Open daily.

9. Spicy Chicken Wings at Elephant and Castle

An odd mix of tourist hotspot and local favourite, the Temple Bar institution is famous for its wings. Tribeca in Ranelagh is a close second, but a basket of these are the best.

Crispy and spicy without just being hot for the sake of it, and nice and meaty too, they’re a total treat. And the blue cheese dressing is insane.

€13. Open daily

10. Burrito at Boojum

Another place where the queues do the talking, Boojum always seems busy and has recently opened a second branch on Kevin Street.

Choose a white or brown tortilla, meat, rice, beans, veg and toppings, watch them expertly wrap it up and devour. Those watching the carbs can ditch the wrap for a bowl.

From €5.95. Open daily. Vegetarian option available

11. Pizza Slice at DiFontaine’s

Relocated from the heart of Temple Bar to its outskirts on Parliament St, the pizza quality hasn’t dipped.

Authentic New York slices, these are thick, doughy and cheesy and toppings are top notch. We like ours simple, the 10th Street is just cheese and pepperoni for only €3.

Open daily, delivery option available for full pizza. Vegetarian option available

12. Sunday Roast at Brookwood

Brookwood

This relatively new steak and seafood house on Baggot St is trying to make #lunchisthenewbrunch happen. And with a roast like this, it might just.

A half joint serves two people but a full one would do three hungry souls. It comes with Yorkshire puddings, veg and delicious gravy, but any sane person will order Parmesan fries too… oh, and the cocktails are half price on a Sunday!

€32.50 for a half roast. Served Sundays, 1-8pm

13. Stir Fried French Bean with Chilli at M&L Chinese

This north inner city restaurant cranks out proper food you would actually find in Sichuan. This veggie dish is one of their most popular, and one of the chef’s recommendations also.

€10, available daily

14. Scotch Egg at L Mulligan Grocer

The Mulligan’s menu is old-skool Irish, but with a modern twist. Miley Cyrus even wandered out to Dublin 7 to sample the goods when she visited Dublin last year.

The Scotch Egg is a starter, pork and egg wrapped in breadcrumbs, it’s absolutely delicious and comes with dijon mayo and “Mulligmaloe” relish for dipping.

€6.50, available daily, vegetarian option available

15. Moroccan Special at Brother Hubbard

Breakfast in Dublin can often be very samey (another Full Irish, you say?) but Capel St’s Brother Hubbard is changing that with their eastern influenced brekkie dishes.

This is a mix of softened veggies including aubergine, chickpea and tomato, with two poached eggs floating in it and served with spinach and sourdough. Non veggies can add chorizo or salmon.

€9.95, available every day until 5pm

16. Lamb Doner at Zaytoon

The star of many an after party, Zaytoon is a thing of legend in the capital. Two branches, Temple Bar and Camden Street, serve spectacular kebabs, but the lamb doner is the stand out.

Perfectly marinaded and tender, with fresh bread and excellent sauces, no other kebab compares. Plus it’s not even frowned upon to eat Zaytoon in the day time, which is how you know it’s actually great.

€9, open daily

17. Cronuts at The Marker Hotel

Chef Gareth Mullins brought these beauties to Irish shores after having them in New York. They’ve been often imitated but never bettered, and the Marker sell them by the box in the morning and on their breakfast menu.

A croissant/donut hybrid, they’re absolutely to die for – and flavours vary, so you kinda have to try them all…

€2.50 each, available daily
