Shepherds Pie, chocolate scones + Irish craft beer.

Early start today, we rushed off to London Gatwick Airport to catch a quick flight over the pond to Dublin. Husni nabbed an interview at a high profile company in London so he had to stay behind, so Eric and I head over to Ireland to eat carbs and drink Guinness.

We landed and head straight into the Temple Bar district for a few pints and some Irish food at The Quays Irish Restaurant. We went for some crisp, battered fish balanced precariously on a bowl of chips and Shepherds Pie.

We wandered around the cobble streets for a while and found our way to Cows Lane, where we stopped off at the Queen of Tarts for some of their famous scones.

We went for a chocolate scone, filled with melty chocolate chips. I was always a bit of a scone fiend, and I think it is going to be a problem for me in the UK. My intake is rapidly increasing by the day… and it wasn’t low to start off with.

We head back for a rest in the hotel before heading out to dinner at Green Nineteen, a local restaurant that concentrates on quality produce, sourced locally where possible – we tried some Irish craft beers. Proudly brewed by a Kiwi and an Aussie!

Salads for dinner to counteract the beer we will be drinking over the next few days – that is how it works right?
