Sambros Scores With ‘Just Eat’
Sambros in Limerick city has been named “Best of Ireland” and “Best of Munster” at the ninth annual Just Eat Awards. Celebrating Ireland's favourite restaurants and takeaways, the annual awards were hosted by TV presenter Muireann O'Connell at Dublin’s Mansion House.
Speaking to RTÉ Lifestyle, Sambros owner Gary Huynh said that the win was a proud moment for the team.
“It's amazing, actually, in fairness,” he says, “I did not expect it at all.”
A total of 150 restaurants were nominated under 16 categories, with shortlisted representatives from all over the country in attendance at the black-tie event. Award winners were decided by public vote, giving customers across the country the opportunity to support their top local spots.
Having opened just months before the pandemic, and having survived a fire within the first year, the no-nonsense sandwich shop that promises to deliver “good food, no BS” is delighted to be celebrating some wins.
"We opened our doors on the first of December 2019, and we've been carrying on strong since then. It was about three months before everything started shutting down, but it's been good in fairness, I think we really worked on our social media and honed what we were doing well and just kept on going."
