Dublin’s city centre and environs is full of great places to grab a bite to eat without needing to choose between the set menu or the à la carte. Whether it’s delicious pizza chosen from a blackboard at Paulie’s Pizza or while ordering at the counter in Neon. Some of the best of Dublin’s casual dining comes in the form of ethnic cuisine, from the little enclave off Duke Street Yum Thai to the great Mexican treats you can pick up at Pablo Picante or its neighbouring venture Pablo’s Tortas. That said, some of the most unique offerings of Dublin’s casual dining scene come from the same Irish restaurateur who has created both Jo’burger and Crackbird - some of the only Dublin restaurants you’ll see with an in-house DJ and food that will leave you with cravings for months afterwards. If you’re a dedicated carnivore looking for a high-protein feed you’ll want to sample the Bison Bar’s new BBQ menu that features giant trays of Texan style offerings. Meanwhile for those who prefer their fare to come from the sea Bite has reinvented the fish and chip shop with a great pre-gig menu worth giving a go. If you can’t decide what you want but you’d like it cheap Green Nineteen has main courses for €10 with great variety yet excellent quality.
