Ireland is a land of poets and legends, of dreamers and rebels. And of course, beer drinkers!
The Irish House, Nitesh Hub, Koregaon Park is celebrating St. Patrick’s Week from Saturday, 10 March 2018 to Sunday, 18 March 2018.
|St. Patrick’s Week|
Green beers, Irish food, giant burgers and lots of drinking games on offer. The place has been decked up to give the feel of a pub in Ireland, complete with four-clover leaves and elves in green.
So I headed there yesterday to check out their specials menu and boy, was I impressed.
The Green Beer was a wonderful change of sight and caught our imagination. A very smooth beer, I wish this finds a permanent place on the menu.
|Green Beer [Rs. 95*]|
Paddy’s Nachos were crispy and homemade green tortilla chips with cheddar cheese sauce, spicy jalapenos and pickled cabbage slaw. Served with fresh tomato salsa and sour cream, the crunch of the nachos balanced the acidity of the salsa and creaminess of the cheese sauce and sour cream. #YumYum
|Paddy’s Nachos [Rs. 245]|
Boxty had pan fried potato pancakes with a cherry tomato ragout and pickled cabbage slaw. The pancakes by themselves felt a little bland [potatoes and cheese, do the math!!] however combined with the ragout, it was a delicious option.
|Boxty [Rs. 275]|
The Coddle made with potatoes and root vegetables cooked in a creamy wine sauce had some lovely homely flavors. Comfort food at its best. #DeliciousDelicious
|Coddle [Rs. 295]|
The Shepherd’s Pie was the classic meat pie with minced lamb and veggies cooked in a red wine sauce and served with Irish soda bread. Hands down the best dish of the menu. #YumYum #HighlyRecommended
|Shepherd’s Pie [Rs. 495]|
The Irish Stew with the lamb, potatoes and root vegetables too had some decent flavors however the shepherd’s pie was still on our taste buds [and minds].
|Irish Stew [Rs. 495]|
Wrapping up the special St Paddy’s Day menu was the Irish Sundae which had a brownie layered with Irish Cream, marshmallows and caramelized nuts; topped with ice cream, and warm espresso. Loved the dense brownie however the caramelized nuts felt a little too sweet.
|Irish Sundae [Rs. 295]|
The customers are also regaled with some card and die games, giving them a chance to win some alcohol shots.
|When life gives you dies, you roll ’em|
As the saying goes, everybody’s Irish on St. Paddy’s Day, so raise a glass to celebrate the patron saint of Éire.
A big shout out to Nikhil and Team Irish House, Nitish Hub for hosting us.
