Eating out: Simple sambos at 147 Deli

A little slice of New York on the North side

Unless you're in the market for Asian style food or post cinema grub, you're unlikely to venture to Parnell Street for a culinary adventure.

However when Insider heard about the sandwiches on offer at 147 Deli, we sprinted from our office for some delicious lunchtime comfort food.

Dublin 1 is sadly lacking in eateries when compared with the south side of the city, where you can't move for hip new restaurant openings, so this place is a breath of fresh air but unfortunately it's limited to soups, salads and sandwiches.

Like a little slice of New York on the North side, the food is available to eat in or take out. The cafe itself is minimalist but homely, but you're not going for the decor – you're going for what's between the bread.

Whether you're in the mood for a cheesey melty sambo, a BBQ pulled pork bap or a classic Reuben, you're guaranteed a delicious mouthful that fills you up but won't weigh you down or empty your wallet.

Type of cuisine

Simple sambos with sides. Not a lot of choice, but enough to keep you coming back.

The vibe

Downtown New York City.

The damage

Around €6.50 for a sambo, €7.50 for a combo but worth every penny.

Parnell Street, Dublin 1
