Cafe Mimo at House of Fraser, Dundrum

We were out in Dundrum Town Centre today and looking for a bite to eat. We looked at the lunch menu for the excellent Ananda restaurant but €25 for three course lunch (starter, main and desser or tea/coffee) seemed too much to spend at lunch. Ditto for the €25 special at the lovely Siam Thai. Plus, I don't really want to be railroaded into eating more courses than I want just for the sake of a good deal.

We found our way to Cafe Mimo at House of Fraser. They have a simple menu based on typical cafe food. I ordered the Cafe Mimo salad (greens, dried cranberries, seeds, feta cheese, grilled peppers and chicken), while he went for the Chicken Caesar salad.

When my salad arrived, I was struck by the size of it. There was more greenery in it than in the clippings basket of a lawnmower. There was very little dressing so I requested more from the waitress, but even after adding the extra dressing, it was still strangely tasteless. My partner had the same complaint about his Chicken Caesar salad. However, the dried cranberries and feta added nice flavours to the salad and overall it was quite nice.

Both salads cost €12.50 and a bottle of sparkling water (€4.50) brought the bill to a total of €29.50.
