Buddha Bowl

Hook and Ladder Sarsfield, Sarsfield Street

If you're looking to fuel up with a healthy, delicious lunch then the Buddha Bowl at Hook and Ladder is exactly what you need. This salad is totally customizable, with a range of grains, proteins, veggies, and toppings to choose from, including falafel, avocado, prawns and beet hummus. If you need a virtuous lunch today, then opt for this salad.

Coqbull Wings

Coqbull Limerick, French Street

Is there anything better than wings? We're obsessed, so we don't think so! The super meaty and moreish Coqbull wings come in three flavors – Hot Coq, BBQ and Sticky Asian – each of which is packed with flavor. Another flavor of wings, the Coqbull Reaper, is also available but be warned, this flavor is not for the faint-hearted.

Raspberry and Almond Blanc Manger

The French Table, Steamboat Quay

This gorgeous dessert is a modern take on the classic blancmange which is a creamy dessert that is traditionally made with milk or cream and flavored with almonds. The French Table's version is flavored with almonds and set on top of a layer of raspberry. Topped with caramelized almonds and raspberries, this dish looks like it would be the perfect way to end a meal.

Sunday Sharing Roast

Cornstore, Thomas Street

Sunday lunch is one of life's greatest pleasures and it looks like the team at Cornstore Limerick have absolutely nailed it. Cornstore offers roast beef, crispy roast pork belly, and roast turkey with all the trimmings every Sunday, but if you can't decide which one to go for, why not try them all? The roast sharing platter offers a taste of all three roasts with all of your favorite sides, so you can have a bit of everything.

Huevos Rancheros

The Buttery, Bedford Row

We love brunch, so these huevos rancheros from The Buttery are right up our street. Served with fried eggs, chorizo, jalapeños, guacamole and salsa with chipotle sauce, sour cream, tostada, and sourdough toast, these eggs offer a range of flavors.
