On one of my rare trips to Dublin the other day, I was struck by the amount of offers out there. Fast food outlets, food shops, supermarkets, high-end restaurants: they’re everywhere.
Chick King‘s new branch, just opened on South Anne St. beside La Cave, has a Mini Chicken Fillet Sandwich Meal for €4.95. Every Tuesday, there’s a particularly good deal at Chick King: buy one two piece meal and get one free. Anyone tried this place yet?
Burger King‘s very heavily advertised Recession Buster continues: the Double Cheeseburger King Deal comes with a small fries and small drink for €3.50. Less effort on the part of McDonald’s, where they best they can muster is a Double Cheeseburger – which will not even begin to fill you up – for €2. Meh.
Also on South Anne St., even Sheridan’s Cheesemongers have a meal deal for two: Duck Confit (2 legs), gnocchi or any pasta, 200g of Basil Pesto and a bottle of Cotes du Roussillon La Sarda for €25. I’ll put my hands up and say I don’t knw very much about wine or duck legs, so I don’t really know if this is a particularly good deal. Readers, can you enlighten me?
