Pub grub.

If you're ever in Dublin and looking for some traditional pub food, might I suggest what our kind concierge suggested to us on Sunday evening: O'Neils, just off Grafton Street. I would never have guessed I'd get food this good in a pub, but the Irish tend to take their eats seriously. I got carrots, cabbage, a fat potato and some thick slabs of roast turkey, all covered in a delicious gravy, for something like 12 Euros (not pictured: a large cup of "chips" doused in malt vinegar). I don't rightly know what that translates into in American money, but I do know I was extremely full and extremely satisfied in the end. To me, that's worth plenty. It's just unfortunate they didn't have a couch for me to stretch out on after while we caught a bit of the rugby game (South Africa vs. Argentina).

Best question/comment of the day came care of Marc: "Do you think they eat Lucky Charms in Ireland?" I'm too embarrassed/amused to dare find out.

That's typical pub grub for you. Any pub'll serve it just as good! You need to get a steak pie though... Do it and dedicate it to me!
