Every week, DM will be reviewing a nearby pub meal to help you navigating the archipelago of drinking holes and student specials at your doorstep.
The Corkman: Unlike other pubs which cut corners by using processed chicken patties, The Corkman uses real chicken breast that is cooked to perfection. The cheese on top is golden, the sauce beneath it is hot, and the ratio of both makes the whole meal a juicy experience. Its only shortcomings are that there is a notable absence of the obligatory salad, and the chips are nothing to write home about. Parma purists should also note that the meal is ham-less.
The Corkman offers students $15 Parma + pot, all day Mon-Thur, and until 5pm on Friday. If you mention this review when you eat there this week the friendly Irish staff will upgrade your pot to a pint for free.
After 5pm on Friday the kitchen switches to all-you-can-eat sweet chilli chicken wings. Between 6-8pm $15 gets a table of 4 people a continuous supply of succulent chicken wings and chips. Waiters generally manage to get a plate of 9 wings to your table every 15-20 mins, making this a great value deal if you show up at 6!
