Some Old Favourites

I like revisiting certain restaurants because they are just so good. I'm going to replug some of my favourites, and nominate a new favourite cafe.

I've been the Hilan Chinese and Korean restaurant several times in the last few months, and each time it's gotten better. We've ordered dishes such as steamed fish in chili sauce, scallops in chilli sauce (a huge plate for E14!) and smoked dried pork with snow peas. When we couldn't finish a plate of dumplings, we asked for boxes to take them home in and the waitress suggested frying them the next day with some garlic and chili. Talk about service.

Chez Max near Dublin Castle just keeps getting better and better. It's such a cosy restaurant with oodles of charm, quirky menus and excellent service. We arrived on a busy Thursday night and rather than turning us away, we were seated in the tiny but lovely alcove and served a glass of wine while a table was made available.

Cafe Cagliostro is one of my favourite cafes in Dublin. It's located in the Italian Quarter just off the Millenium Bridge and features great coffee made by Italians. Bravissimo!
