1. Tomahawk, Essex Street
Hot off the press, Tomahawk serve up serious comfort food in the form of chunks of delicious meat.
Their steaks are 100% the star of the show but their utterly buttery mash takes a close second place - if this video doesn't convince you, we don't know what will:

They're open from 5pm until late this evening - don't forget to order some Chimichurri sauce. You'll thank us later <3
Sorry to be basic but, for us, Bunsen makes any dreary day instantly better.
Genuinely. It's the little things in life.
So head out to South Anne Street, Temple Bar, Wexford Street or Ranelagh and get your fix before heading home to veg in front of Netflix for the rest of the evening.
We'll take a double cheeseburger with extra pickles, shoestring fries and a chocolate shake plz x
3. I Monelli, Portobello
We said a few months ago that this was our favourite Italian restaurant in Dublin.
And nothing has changed.
Excellent, authentic, generous Italian food every. single. time.
This place defines the term 'hidden gem'.
They recently added some new items to their menu - read all about 'em here: One Of Our Favourite Dublin Restaurants Has Just Added Some Delicious Dishes To Their Menu
4. Taco Taco, Dame Court
Three words. Sixteen letters.
Pulled. Pork. Nachos.
If you're super hungry back some crab tostadas on the bill too and treat yourself to some poutine on the side. If you're going all out - get yo'self a cocktail to wash it all down with.
5. Paulie's Pizza, Grand Canal Street Upper
One of our places to go for a pick-me-up, Paulie's serve some of the best pizzas in the country. Fact.
Getta pizza dis:
The Zoe (pictured above) consists of Buffalo mozzarella, tomato sauce, nduja sausage, chorizo, pepperoni, spicy salami & fresh chillis and will set you back €16.
6. Featherblade, Dawson Street
Open until 10pm on Sundays, we often find ourselves drifting back to this place when we're feeling blue - which is usually Sundays, let's be real.
If you really want to cheer yourself up, opt for the short rib and a side of mac and cheese and beef drip fries.
The above combo cures all and any ailments - including the blues.
This video is proof:
7. Cotto, Manor Street
Back at it again with the pizza - but for good reason.
There are some very tasty places for pizza in Dublin but for our money, this one is up there with the best of them.
The menu is small and focuses on Italian-style pizzas, fresh salads and a few tasty sides and sauces like beetroot hummus and confit garlic aoili.
The perfect place to grab some food, a glass of wine and have a good catch-up.
