Audrey Hepburn I ain’t, 5th Avenue this isn’t. It’s Temple Bar; once Dublin’s Jewish ghetto and now a nightlife/tourist hub extraordinaire. At noon on a damp, rainy day there are less tourists than there are commuters. The cobblestone streets are slick, shining softly under the overcast sky. Objective: to enjoy some lunch in the scenic neighborhood; have had pasties on the brain all through my morning workshop.
Hanley’s Cornish Pasties located on Merchant’s Arch; Celtic heritage bakers since 1860. Today’s lunch is a “traditional” pasty – savoury crust, tender hunks of beef, juicy carrots, earthy parsnips and potatoes.
Steaming hot pocket of joy.
Chomp away while staring down narrow stone lanes, pubs named after Hanoverian-era writers, and 5 euro lunch menus for future reference. Watch my reflection in smudged windows; look at pretty things I can’t afford.
