Obama heads to the US embassy for lunch, but what's on the menu?

The president and his wife are headed to Ballsbridge for a private meal. Will it be bacon and cabbage, or crisps and red lemonade on the menu?

US PRESIDENT BARACK Obama may seem like a superhero at times, but everybody needs their sustenance and following this morning’s meetings in the Phoenix Park with President Mary McAleese and Taoiseach Enda Kenny he’s heading to the US Embassy in Ballsbridge for a spot of lunch.

The streets are quiet around Ballsbridge as the area around the embassy goes into lockdown for the duration of Obama’s stay there.

This afternoon’s lunch is a private affair and while he’s there Obama will meet with the Washington diplomatic corps. It’s not clear what will be on the menu for the president and his wife Michelle, but one would assume he’ll be treated to the finest of Irish ingredients, just as Queen Elizabeth II was when she had a lovely feed at Dublin Castle.

So what might be on the menu at the US Embassy today?
