Two Little Foodies

The Two Little Foodies is a blog with an Instagram page run by myself, Cora Bolger , and my friend Muireann. We’re two student foodies based in Dublin. Whether you prefer sweet or savoury, undoubtedly we all share the common interest of enjoying food – while we celebrate, while we procrastinate, or as we head home from a night out at 5am. We decided to set up our food blog because, as we’ve already said, we LOVE food. More importantly, we love good food. With our blog we hope to abolish any type of food regret (you can’t deny it, we’ve all spent our hard earned money on an absolutely awful meal), and bring out the foodie in all of you (on a student budget, of course). We hope you enjoy!  Two Little Foodies

NEON

You really can’t get more student friendly than this. From Monday to Thursday from 2-5pm, Neon on Camden Street has a student deal which consists of a main dish, rice/noodles and an ice cream cone. That’s right, after your meal you can head up to the self-service machine and make your own ice cream! You’ll get all this for the pretty amazing price of 5 euro. The quality of the food is super, the service is extremely fast and the whole place is really casual, so if you’ve had a rough night, you’ll have nothing to worry about coming here.

 

FARMER BROWNS

A hidden gem in Ballsbridge close to the quays, Farmer Browns is the perfect spot for lunch or weekend brunch. The food is delicious, the staff are friendly and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. We tried the brunch burger, the club sandwich and the breakfast salad (which is really just a fry in a salad, minus the grease – so you won’t be left feeling overwhelmed). All very reasonably priced, we ended up paying around 20 euro per person, including coffee and extra fries (which probably weren’t really needed, but we feel fries are always necessary). If you’re looking for somewhere off the beaten track for a great brunch, this is the spot for you!

 

DUBLIN DOUGHNUT CO.

This one is for those of you with a sweet tooth. Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Deli 147 just off O’Connell Street stocks doughnuts from Dublin Doughnut Co. With different flavours every week, you’ll always find something you’ll enjoy (and an excuse to go back every weekend!). At 3 euro each, they’re a great treat and definitely worth a try.
