While waiting for the Christmas Lights Spectacular event to start, we decided to have our dinner next door at the Harrigan’s Irish Pub.
In keeping with the theme, Irish artefacts are authentically crafted and decorated throughout the pub and restaurant.
Here, we also learnt that Harrigan's was actually named after a popular song from the musical, Yankee Doodle Dandy, which was written by an Irishman, George Michael Cohen.
After browsing through their menu, …
… we decided to try their steak burger, pork bangers, and pizza, all with a little hint of Ireland.
The Gourmet Steak Burger consists of a yearling 150g Scotch fillet, marinated with KILKENNY caramelised onion jam, served with lettuce, tomato, beetroot and cheese inside a toasted damper bun brushed with tomato chutney.
Next came the Irish Pork Bangers and Mash, a twice cooked Irish pork sausages with mash potato, gravy and mushy peas.
Last but not least, the Yankee Doodle Dandy pizza is served, where ingredients included BBQ chicken, avocado, Spanish onion, and a sour cream swirl.
