The tagline of Eamonn's: A Dublin Chipper restaurant is, "Thanks be to cod." That's fitting, given that cod is one of the most popular dishes on the menu, described by regulars as moist, flavorful, and flaky.
In addition to cod, you can also order ray, prawns, grouper, or the fish of the day. You order your chips separately. There are seven sauces to choose from, and they're all mayonnaise-based. Regulars recommend the curry sauce, described as having a depth of spicy flavors, and the Marie Rose, which contains ketchup.
If you're not in the mood for fish, you can't go wrong with the batter burger, which comes without a bun; the sausage; or the chicken bites. Don't forget the order the classic mushy peas on the side.
Make sure to save room for one of Eammon's irreverent, decadent desserts, such as the fried Snickers or Milky Way bars. The restaurant also has a variety of packaged candies and snacks imported from the U.K. if you want to enjoy a sweet treat later.
