Ever since they won the first ever Taste of Temple Bar Award, back in 1995, Chameleon has stayed true to the ethos of what the competition sought to achieve: that the zone would be a funky, punky arrondissement of chef-patron places to eat; left-field shops; cool bars, all of them different, all of them good. The rest of the zone has commercialised, but Kevin and Carol haven’t, and eating in The Chameleon you still have the feeling that every dish is an adventure. It’s an adventure for the diner, of course, who has to decide whether to choose the Rijst-Tafel dishes, or the Asian tapas dishes, or whether to go for their much-lauded selection of steamed bun dishes. It’s a great place for eating with a bunch of people, and it’s still the star of Temple Bar.
