I was invited to try the Sunday Roast at The Exchequer in Dublin 2 by Paul Stenson from The White Moose Cafe. I love a good roast. What I don’t love is the cleaning up after it so I was eager to try The Exchequer’s roast. I’ve never had their roast before but I’ve been countless times for their lunch menu (The 1/2 roast chicken is muy bueno).
There is a limited number of roasts available and you need to pre-book your roast before Friday to avail of it. The roast will be cooked to your preference and comes with all the trimmings.
The roast costs €59.95 and it’s for 4 people which I think is really good value for what you’re getting. We got 2 of them between 8 (and that includes LP who eats enough for a small village) and we easily could have fed another 2 people. We brought the leftovers home for the dogs and they were highly appreciative of it as well.
The pictures don’t do justice to how big the slab of beef they gave us was.
As I said, the roast comes with all the trimmings. Roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, carrots and gravy. I honestly thought I was going to blow after finishing it I was so stuffed. Luckily for me, my dessert belly was still open for business.
Dessert doesn’t come with the roast but if you are like me, no meal is complete without it. The Exchequer kindly gave us a platter of desserts including creme brulee, chocolate fondant, a lime tart (I think!) and some vanilla ice-cream.
If a Sunday roast is your thing then I highly recommend trying The Exchequer. I think it’s a great idea and knowing you don’t have to bother doing any of the cooking or cleaning on a Sunday means you can enjoy that Saturday night drink even more.
