I had the pleasure of going to The Queen of Tarts in old Temple Bar(Cow Lane) yesterday for tea and cake. Its very well set out, the cakes look amazing. The cakes aren't over the top and look so fresh, i'd love to be working there making cakes. I had a plum tart , pastry was perfect and the plums were sitting in a jam/syrup that had a hint of vanilla. Joanne my girlfriend had chocolate fudge cake, it looked gorgeous( and tasted so aswell), the cake was covered in a Chocolate ganache(Melted Choc with Cream). To top the cakes off , the tea was beautiful, and served in bone china cups, very lah dee da. :) I cant wait to go back here, may need to go back sooner rather than later to help forget the misery of the budget tomorrow.

Mogul Emperor
1 Henry Street, Limerick City, Limerick

Let me start of by saying this is the best Indian Restaurant in Limerick, and one of the best I have eaten in. I went here on Saturday the 11th, for my brothers birthday dinner. The Mogul is your typical Indian in regard to decor, carpet hangin on the walls, its like stepping back in time going in here. But the decor in this place has nothing to do with how good the food is. I started with Mirch Kebab, this is chicken cooked in the tandoor marinated in black pepper and yogurt. This was quite tasty and mellow tasting apart from the coriander ( I hate coriander I think it tastes like soap) only downfall was the pointless salad. Next came the mains, Chilli Masala with Boiled rice and Peshwari Naan( Naan stuffed with almond and sultanas) This was absolutely gorgeous, it was hot but not too hot and has to be one of my favourite curries, it ranks highly with the Chilli Masala at Indie Spice in Swords. The meal was beautiful and the guys who run it are very attentive to the customer, even going to great lengths to make a Korma less hot for my brothers girlfriend :) . Another great meal in the Mogul, and their food still shows why they are the Emperor of Limerick when it comes to Indian food.

Metro Cafe
43 South William Street, South William Street, Dublin

Anytime I stay up in Dublin, which is now becoming more regular , I always love to go to the Metro Cafe for breakfast on the Saturday. Having first been told about it by my friends Damien and Lesley earlier this year, I keep coming back. Its at the top of South William St going towards St Stephens Green shopping centre. The staff always seem so nice in here aswell which really adds to the place. I always go for the same breakfast , I get a large mocha coffee, scrambled eggs on sourdough bread, two sausages and lots of extra relish. It comes to 12.50, and its truly worth it, its a beautiful breakfast and I always leave happy.

The Boxty House
20-21 Temple Bar, Dublin 2, City Centre South, Dublin

Its a Tuesday night in Dublin, its bitterly cold and all you want is a meal of hearty food to warm you up. Where better than Gallaghers Boxty house in Temple Bar. From the outset you can see they are catering for tourists, its all very kitsch. The seating is made up of large dining tables which promote strangers to sit with one another, I guess it adds to the traditional sentiment of the restaurant. The menu we decided to go for was the 25 euro one which incorporates 3 courses, ( they say you must pick your courses from the items on the menu with the shamrock beside it, these are the courses included in the offer, but pretty much everything bar the steak has a shamrock beside) .  My girlfriend went with the starter sized portion of the main Murphy's Stout Beef Stew, I decided to go with the Atlantic Seafood Chowder. Both dishes are served with Guinness Bread(The only Guinness related item on the menu, as Murphys seems to be the drink of choice, which I had a pint of :) ) My chowder was very tasty, but the only downside is I would have preferred more seafood, as it seemed to have more vegetables than seafood. As for my girlfriends Stew, well that was amazing, I wish I had gotten a bowl of that. It was like coming home to huge welcoming hug, it was beautiful and had such a lovely flavour and being cooked in the stout really added to the depth of flavours. The Guinness bread is also worth a mention, it was amazing, soft and had a sweetness to it , absolutely beautiful for mopping up your starter. For both of us our main we chose Corned Beef with Cabbage, Mash and a side of Parsley sauce. Up until last night I have only ever had Bacon & Cabbage and this is very similar. The corned beef is a joint of beef cured in brine and then boiled. The quality meat we had last night was very lean and beautifully cooked, very tender, and all round it was gorgeous and so filling. The desserts we went for were Bread and Butter Pudding w/Custard and Dark Chocolate fudge cake. Firstly the dark chocolate fudge cake

Jimmy Chungs
Eden Quay, City Centre North, Dublin

Jimmy Chungs Recession Busting Food So I had the pleasure of going here last night with my girlfriend. Its the end of the month we are broke but haven't seen each other in a week and would like a good feed of food. Yes you could say stay in , cook, go to McDonalds, BK but no we wanted to go for some food that was gonna be relatively nice cheap and we could chat catch up. My girlfriend having been there before suggested going to Jimmy Chungs, 13 euro for an all you can eat buffet is a seriously good deal, there is no denying it. First thing you notice is the place is heaving and is packed out, but at the same time we were seated straight away, its very well laid out decor wise and lots of staff on hand. We were seated by an asian gentlemen and thats it , eating time :). The first thing I notice everything is steaming hot and looks so fresh. The selection is quite large you have many hot areas, a section for starters, which incorporates two types of soup, chicken and sweetcorn and chicken noodle soup, quite a lot chicken dishes are here, chicken maryland, chicken skewers, chicken balls, wontons, sauces ( sweet n sour , satay). On the main section again lots of different dishes, which my pics show, there is a counter for salads ( frankly in a chinese this was of no interest to me) there was a "sides" counter which had chips, egg fried rice, singapore noodles, thai green curry, prawn crackers, vermicelli noodles , vegetable rice and curry sauce. Finally there was a Desserts cabinet which had all kinds of jelly, cakes, apple cake, and pudding , with the added bonus of an ice cream machine. I started with the chicken and sweetcorn soup, I have to say it was a little bland so I added some soy sauce, that perked it up a bit. I also grabbed some chicken skewers with sweet and sour sauce, the chicken was lovely and tender most importantly yummy. I moved on then to my mains round 1 , firstly I got some spicy chicken dish with shredded chicken which was gorgeous, it was deep fried chicken in a sweet yet spicy bbq sauc
