careys street
cork, ireland
this little restaurant is located just south of french church street, between patrick street and paul street.
luckily one of the girls i was meeting got there before the throngs that i had to pass when i got there, so we got a table.
the food was great. but our waitress was a bit bitchy, possibly just a long HOT day (it was really hot upstairs) but still, not that fun. the next one we got was much nicer.  Continue reading »

the lunch menu is great “value for money” as they say in ireland. it was 7.90€ for a large portion of pasta. you get a stamp for each main you eat there, and after collecting 5 or 6 stamps you get a free main.  Continue reading »
