On a recent trip to Ireland we had dinner at the Trocodero Restaurant in Dublin. It is a well known destination for tourists and has photo's of famous people around all the walls. The place was lively even for an early sitting. The food is traditional, we had the Chateaubriand between 3 of us which was lovely. Interestingly my daughter asked for a Peach Iced Tea and was presented with a pot of hot breakfast tea with a glass of ice cubes.
A couple of days later we were taken by the family to the Brown Bear in Naas, for Sunday lunch. This is a modern style gastro pub, quite big, with a separate bar. The menu is nice and simple, two courses for Euro 22 or three courses for 28. I had scallops with beans and mint to start which was superb, followed by lamb with some sort of lentil type beans with a sweet jus. Side dishes of new potatos and cauliflower cheese. My daughters has Chicken wings to start with crispy fried haddock, chips and pea puree. They loved it. So did I. In fact all of us (party of seven) thought it was outstanding. It was by far the best food I have eaten in Ireland and fantastically good value. The service was friendly and efficient. We were given an extra dish of zuccini because the chef made too much. Really cant think of anything negative to say about it. Culinary highlight of our trip to Ireland.
