Nice little mention for Cheapeats in an article on early birds in today’s Irish Times:
Do early birds always represent the best value for money? Not necessarily, says Peter McGuire of Cheapeats.ie, the entertainingly frugal food blog. “I’ve seen several set menus where diners would be better off ordering the same ingredients from the á la carte. Also, just because a place offers food for less than it usually costs, that does not mean it is better value for money than a cheaper restaurant down the road without a set menu or early bird.”
There are a few things to look out for, he warns, such as very restrictive time slots and supplements on just about everything you’d typically want to eat, including steak and sides dishes.
I reckon Fallon and Byrne has one of the best deals in Dublin, so delighted to see them featured as well.
