Enid, Alice and I met up for a catchup on Thursday in Xico on Baggot Street. Enid isn't mad on the food but it suited Alice and I - she wasn't in the mood for walking far as she was wearing very fancy shoes, and I just adore the food here.
I ordered the chili as I always do. My friend Tara and I are obsessed with the rice here. Last time we went we were asking so much questions about it that they were almost going to send the chef out ot us #ricenerds
Tara and I go here a lot - we used to go a lot when it was the Baggot Lounge previously. "Pint and a platter?" used to be our code for will we go to the Baggot for a drink tonight...back in the day!
I also like the atmosphere in Xico. At some point of the night it literally goes mental and turns into a nightclub with dancing on the tables. Well that's what I remember doing last time I was there. I joke and call it the "Titty Twister" from the movie "From Dusk til Dawn".
Enid wasn't overly happy with the food. Lol but sure she never is :-) She was complaining to Ciaran the next day. He was like, well you were eating in a nightclub, what do you expect?!
We left way before the titty twister turned into vampirefest however. None of us fancied a hangover the next day! It was a great night as always with these pair early finish or not.
