Red Torch Ginger: Voted as Dublin’s favourite Thai Restaurant, you can get an express lunch designed like a Bento Box for just €9.99. This restaurant is a wonderful mix of Business men, hungry locals and off course some smart Tourists who stumble upon this gem. Meat Lovers can enjoy a Chicken Satay Skewer followed by Rice and Chicken Cashew nuts. Vegetarians have an equally delectable offering of Spring Roll as starter followed by a delicious Veggie Curry and Rice. Don’t forget to leave room for a beautiful moist Brownie guaranteed to satiate the heartiest hunger.
Looking for some healthy food that is not going to burst your wallet or waistband? If you are eager to enjoy the last of the Summer Sun, why not get an amazing Salad from Chopped from one of their 4 City Centre locations. You are not going to feel deprived with the delicious nutritious array of cold Salads, meats and veggies on offer. Chopped is extremely popular so it’s best to call ahead and pre-order your food online. The Dubhlin Gardens at the back of Chester Beatty are a great place to enjoy some Al Fresco Dining!
