Well, you guys asked an therefore, you shall receive (disclaimer: not all wishes will be granted but I do try my best!)

This food post shares my absolute favourite Dublin budget friendly restaurants for when you want to eat out but payday is a painful distance away…. all delicious spots with mains for close to or less than a tenner.

Enjoy! xx

Shouk, Drumcondra

Epic Mediterranean eats, full of flavour AND they’re BYO (€4 corkage)… I mean, what more could you want!?

El Grito, Merchants Arch

Tasty little tacos in a tiny little space, perfect for a pre-pint nibble.

Sano Pizza, Exchange Street

This Delicious city centre spot serves delicious pizzas from as little as €6! They’re super fresh and so bloody tasty!

Govinda’s- Aungier St & Middle Abbey St

These little gems won’t impress with presentation but their offerings are always full of flavour. It’s a taster of 3 mains with rice kind of set up, pay at the till, served straight away & a glass of water fired at you. I love this spot & you’ll be full of hearty vegi deliciousness with change out of a tenner

On the Pig’s back Capel Street

Tasty vegi & vegan burgers with chips that are cooked to perfection & a garlic dip to die for.

Yumo, Aungier Street

Delicious ramen at budget prices.

Umi Falafel, Dame Street

I’m baffled as to how this spot doesn’t have an official mention in the food section of the blog as I’ve eaten here at least 10 times & its been unreal every.single.time. I usually go for the Palestine option but the halloumi wrap is excellent too.

Pho Viet, Parnell Street

Delicious, healthy dinner for less than €10?? Go here on a cold winter evening for a meal akin to a warm friendly hug.

Madina, Mary Street

Authentic Indian cuisine served at unbeatable eat-in prices.

Arisu, Capel Street

It’s no secret that this spot is arguably myself & Sean’s favourite restaurant… & for good reason. Its our failsafe with the bibimbap being my go-to dish.

Aoboba, Capel Street

Another Capel Street gem worthy of a mention. Perfect for a quick bite on a cold night.

Damascus gate, Camden Street

Tasty Middle Eastern eats, great service & BYO


Well there ya have it guys, my 12 absolute favourite budget restaurants in Dublin… enjoy!! x
