For two days this week, my class have been talking about food: grilled, fried, steamed, stuffed, baked, boiled, chopped, sliced, diced, grated, crushed, mashed, sprinkled, flaked, halved, quartered, served, washed, drained, browned, thickened, blended, beaten, whisked, seasoned, buttered, drizzled, tossed, cut, brought to the boil, simmered, dressed, raw, mixed, folded, flipped, turned, stirred, charred, burnt, overcooked, undercooked, let sit, smelled, bitten, tasted, chewed, swallowed, spat out, savoured, relished, heated, reheated and of course, eaten.
Everyone was asked where they liked to eat out in Dublin – Yamamori on the quays was a popular choice:
the Terrazzo Italia in the Powerscourt centre, near Grafton Street:
Moore Street’s Dehli O’Deli (Dublin’s best vegetarian food – a small but substantial menu, and different daily specials that have you full for less than six euro):
So, what about you? Where would you recommend? Leave a comment and let us know.
And if you think the list of food-related adjectives at the top is insufficient, feel free to add some more.
(Sorry for the French, but it sounds so much better than, “Enjoy your meal”, or even worse, “Happy eating”.)
