The Farmgate in the English Market comes in two parts. There's a big self-service café which overlooks the stalls below and which does good chunky food at reasonable prices (the soups, the breads and the Irish stew are good, wholesome things). And then there's the much smaller, cosier restaurant which specialises in Irish traditional food from oysters in their natural state to the likes of corned mutton. The Irish version of cuisine grandmere, given proper recognition and respect.
