If you didn’t already know – sheesh – Cafe Bliss, down a little lane between Camden Street and Harcourt Street, has one of the best value meals you’ll find in Dublin. Your €9.95 will get you a two course meal plus tea or coffee from the early bird menu.
Starters of vegetable parcels and lamb kebabs were great, especially the lamb kebabs, which came with a fresh mint dip.
Jean’s vegetarian chilli dish was really tasty, and her request for extra spice was well met. My Malaysian chicken was good, if a little bit more south Indian than Malaysian – still, it was very good considering the price. Both dishes were served with perfectly cooked rice.
The place is slightly lacking in atmosphere, which is fine for an early bird, but I’m not sure it’s the place you’d want to linger for an evening meal. A few small touches would cheer it up no end.
