    Sorry about the belated congrats, but congrats! Will be interested in the baby friendly venues for when we happen down Cork way. We’ll have to get the little ones together sometime for a mini-foodie feeding frenzy!

    I think you’ve been pretty busy yourself, although perhaps not as busy as Manuela! If the three of you are in Cork, then I’d definitely recommend Jacobs for a sit down lunch or, if you’re about on a Thursday, the market is lots of fun and your fellow Foodtalk interviewee Arun is always there with fantastic curries.

    O´Briens Crescent here. would you like a voucher to make up for the sandwich you were not happy with?

  4. Caroline says:

    While I appreciate the effort to make up for that particular experience, to be honest I don’t think I’ll be back. I thought the sandwich was very overpriced (around €6.40, as far as I remember, and that was for a takeaway) even before the fact that I discovered that the bread was burnt. I would have brought the sandwich straight back to you on the day but for the fact that I was eating it in the car and trying to feed Little Missy at the same time.You did me an inadvertent favour, though. Since then, and after my experience at The Bagel Bar, I’ve been making sure I never leave the house without an easily accessible supply of flapjacks, dried fruit or nuts. It just doesn’t make sense to waste money.
