Dine-in-Cork may be at an end in most places but both Electric and Liberty Grill are keeping it going for another week to give regular customers a chance at the extra value menu: four courses (including tea or coffee) for €25.00.

Got to say thanks to Electric for putting up a Twitter competition where I was one of a dozen or so lucky winners. Prize was a table for four and a meal from the Dine-in-Cork menu and I took advantage yesterday evening. Glad to report that my guests were all happy with the meal, the venue, the window with a view and the friendly and efficient service.

There are some excellent starters in the line-up and I was tempted by the Bodice and Cabbage. The sticky roast pork ribs came on a bed of sauerkraut and chilli jam. Had the sauerkraut here a few weeks back and it went very well indeed with the ribs.

Thought this might be a sticky dish, especially when the finger-bowl of water arrived. But the pork was so well cooked it more or less fell away from the bone and there was little need to resort to the fingers!

Picked the sirloin for my main course. It was a 6 ounce Angus sirloin served with sauté mushrooms, mash, triple cooked chips (in a paper cone) and mine, by choice, was served with garlic butter. It was cooked as requested and very enjoyable indeed.

They had a good choice of desserts from the regular menu but Baked Alaska was the popular choice and it was, as their heading suggests, “something sweet”. Finished off with coffee as I know they do a good one here. Very enjoyable all round. Now, are there any more twitter competitions at the moment?
