This week’s theme for p52 is “hunger’. And while I could have shown you the meager diet I am eating this week as an effort to reset my body to healthy eating after weeks of travel, I thought I’d take a different twist on the topic and share a food that I hunger for- when it’s prepared correctly.
Be it right or wrong, I define a good pub by a single meal… Fish and Chips.
If the fish is too greasy, the batter not crispy enough or, heaven forbid, the fish is cold,I’m not likely to return any time soon.
My most recent Fish & Chips experience was at the new Dubliner Irish Ale House & Pub in Kansas City’s Power & Light District. As you can see the fish is lovely and crisp, the sides aren’t too large and the presentation is attractive. Big bonus- it was still sizzling when it arrived at my table- no small task as the pub was packed with NCAA fans. The cod was perfectly flaky and the sauce was a tasty change from traditional tartar sauces. I’ll be returning to The Dubliner after March Madness is over to check out their full menu.
