Fortuna Chinese Restaurant - Dublin

Chinese food is damn addictive. I could happily eat it day in, day out. Tonight we went over to Parnell Street, where we tried out the new Fortuna Sichuan restaurant.

The menu is amazing with photos of tranditional foods (duck blood slices and duck heads anyone) and tonnes of options. I chose cumin mutton and a spring onion pancake while he went for 'Fried duck until explodes" with fried rice. What a great name - we had visions of the chef struggling with some TNT and a duck in the kitchen.

The food turned out to be excellent. My cumin mutton was gently spiced and stir-fried with peppers and onions, while the mysterious exploding duck consisted of fried pieces of duck flavoured with siuchan peppercorns and green chilis.

Delicious food all round and a great new restaurant.

my alcoholic abusive STBXH has been emailing me things like “you’ll never be wife material” or “you’re 30 and old, who’s going to marry you?” after I filed… did anyone else experience emails like this from their partners? How did you cope. Yes I’m ignoring him but why do I feel like he’s right
