Grub’s up! 9 super-healthy lunches in Dublin for UNDER a tenner

Yes, your 'I'm bringing my own lunch to work EVERY day' resolution might have fallen by the wayside after the first day back to work, but that doesn't mean you need to go emptying your bank balance just to eat well.

Dublin is in the midst of a clean-eating movement at the moment, with countless lunch spots offering seriously tasty, healthy food at a price that won't make you run for cover.

Here are a few of our favourites that are perfect for a quick lunchtime bite – with change from €10.

Brother Hubbard
If you can resist the Pulled Pork Sandwich here, go for the epic 3-Salad Plate instead. For €9.95 you'll get a plate positively heaving with crunchy cucumber and fennel salad, middle eastern slyle slaw, and roast baby potato gribiche. We guarantee the leftovers will do you for lunch tomorrow too.

We've made the mistake of opting for both a large soup and a salad here before and trust us – we could NOT finish it. Go for one or the other instead – a large sweet potato or roast pepper soup with homemade bread is just €5.50, and a medium plate with a mix of epic salads is €8.95.


Honest To Goodness
Everything's good here – the juices, the sambos and the breakfast omelettes. But a personal favourite is the €8 Legend Salad, a delish mix of broccoli, feta, cherry tomatoes, roasted seeds, mixed leaves and your choice of roast chicken or tuna.

Nothing on this menu costs more than €6.49, and most options are cheaper. Choose from a selection of chopped house salads, wraps, sandwiches or create your own.


Staple Foods
Wholegrain wraps here start at €7.50 and salads start at €8.50. We recommend the vegan baked falafel with hummus – it's something else. No, we're not sharing.

Happy Food By The Yoga Hub
This little known lunch spot is operated by The Yoga Hub on Camden St, and it's our go-to for seriously heathy and nourishing food on the go. Their uber-tasty hemp burger is made with black bean,chickpea, spinach and will set you back just €7.90.

Zakura's tofu Yasai Itame ramen will fill you up for days, and it's the perfect antidote to a winter cold. On the dinner menu it's €12.50, but get the same portion for €7.99 between 12 and 5pm.

The Fumbally
Find this beautiful and bright café tucked away on Fumbally Lane in Dublin 8 (take note though, it's closed on Sundays and Mondays). A daily salad plate is €8.50, and for bang on a tenner you can add falafal to that. Or go for a late brekkie and have their amazing avo on sourdough with popped amaranth seeds for €8.50.
