The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | EATING OUT -

black pud­ding sal­ads (¤7.95) to steak sand­wiches with swiss cheese and red onion mar­malade (¤8.95) and a huge se­lec­tion of cakes and pas­tries. And for those who re­ally, re­ally must have some of that brack but can’t get to Clon­mel, th­ese days you can or­der it on­line. lin­guini are per­fect for pesc­etar­i­ans, while baby back ribs and crack­lin’ pork belly will keep meat lovers happy. If you come for lunch, pop next door to the Brown Hound for dessert.

ARD BIA AT NIMMOS

Span­ish Arch, Long Walk, Gal­way, 091-561114, ard­bia.com ¤¤ For­ever get­ting rave reviews, and with good rea­son, Ard Bia at Nimmo’s is a gem of a place. The dé­cor, the menus, the crock­ery, the food - ev­ery­thing is so pretty and invit­ing you’d be tempted to get a job there just so you can come back ev­ery day. Mak­ing the best of lo­cal in­gre­di­ents with a dash of the Mid­dle East in its del­i­cate flavours, the sil­ver hake with fen­nel and sam­phire or savoury baklava with beet­root, feta and pis­ta­chios are din­ners to die for. At lunchtime, the grilled Five Mile Town goats cheese salad is a win­ner. And you ab­so­lutely have to stay for dessert.
