The Irish lunch could usually be typified by the limp, refrigerated sandwich served with vegetable soup in a pub. This is no longer the reality and the standard of the lunchtime offerings in Dublin has sky rocketed with great options for vegetarians and those with food allergies and intolerances. Colourful and inventive salads from Brother Hubbard and Roasted Brown are accompanied by excellent coffee. Sandwiches stuffed with high-quality ingredients and bread sourced from the best bakers in Dublin City Food and its spicier counterpart at Pablo's Tortas on Clarendon Market.
Affordable sushi and Bento boxes at Musashi on Capel Street are paired with top notch omelettes and pizzas in the psychedelic interior of Foam Café around the corner. If you're a steak lover then grab a great value steak sandwich over in Bear on South William Street or if you're a hardcore veggie and want to try the best falafel in town then make it your business to head over to The Fumbally in Dublin 8 - it's worth the detour.
All of this list concentrate on delicious lunches that can be grabbed for under ten euro and offer value for money paired with excellent ingredients and supreme tastiness to make keep you fed until dinner.
