I was out for dinner with loads of colleagues last night, to wave off my lovely friend Elisa who is going to Ethiopia. Fifteen of us went to the Hop House on Parnell St for Korean food and beer. We’ve reviewed the Hop House a number of times here, so I’m not going to go into a whole lot of detail about it – I just wanted to say once more that the Hop House is one of the best cheap eats in Dublin.
They generously agreed to let us order from the lunch menu at our 6pm booking, which meant our dishes were all around the €9 mark. There was general happiness around the table at the spicy, interesting, flavoursome main courses. We had many comically huge bottles of Korean ‘Max’ beer at €9 each, and our meal and drinks came to an outstandingly reasonable €16 a head including tip.
The Hop House is a great destination for a group meal. Beware of the Max beer however – everyone in the office this morning reported insomnia and strange dreams.
The Hop House is at 160 Parnell St in Dublin city centre.
