CNY Makan in Dublin yet in Malaysia?

Nyonya Restaurant 
situated on Dame Street in Dublin is like walking into a little Malaysia.
With the national flags hanging from the ceiling, Chinese lanterns, with the very much loved menu with authentic Malaysian food of all sorts.

Ikan Bakar (Grilled fish)
coated with an extremely spicy sauce that would make your stomach turn.

Best part was eating it to the full..and we weren't even finished with it yet.
(Munches head off with a loud crunch...not kidding. crunchy fish heads are yummy)

Beef Hor Fun 
Stir-fried flat noodles (kuay teow) with beef bean sprouts and onions 

Stir-fried noodles with beef in black bean sauce

Pai Tee -  vegetables with pork stuffed into a crunchy shell with chilli sauce

Taofu goreng - fried tofu with chilli sauce

3 layer Malaysian Tea - coconut palm sugar (bottom) milk (middle) tea (top)

Then we got pleasantly surprised by the lion that entered the restaurant followed by the cymbals and gongs behind him, never thought I'd actually be in one of the restaurants the lion dances were going to.
Perfect timing!

In conclusion,
TRIP UP TO DUBLIN FOR CNY WAS AWESOME
The food
The atmosphere
The noise
Wishing there was more angpao, but I shall be content with one (thanks mum)
Thank you Uncle Mike for the trip up! :)

now i better go study for my test tomorrow and get ready for the public speaking competition which is ALSO tomorrow. GASP.
