My next visit as part of WinterDine was to Old Dublin Pub. After going to Globe World Flavours and finding out they had a private function, I wanted to go someplace outside my usual's. So I went to The Old Dublin Pub.
Old Dublin Pub's menu selection was easier to select from, after all, they only had one meal to select. So, it was a simple decision. Technically, I could have also gone with the selection from Claddagh Oyster House on the second floor as the waitress had offered it, however I wanted to stay on track.
Potato bacon soup
Braised lamb shanks with garlic mashed potatoes, root vegetables and a red wine braising jus
Sticky date pudding, ice cream, toffee and anglaise
Upon ordering, the waitress brought me over my beverage and shortly there after, the Potato Bacon Soup. The soup was delicious. It was what every soup should be like. It had a little bit of kick, and easy going down. I wish the soup came in a bigger portion, not because it wasn't big enough but it was delicious!
A short 13 minutes later came the main course, the Braised Lamb Shanks. The lamb wasn't too appealing however I did throughly enjoy the garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables. The potatoes and veggies were cooked just right. The lamb was practically falling off the bone. I wasn't a big fan but again, however I did find myself moving the lamb out of the way to attack the vegetables on my plate instead!
The sticky date pudding was alright. I didn't really value it too much. It tasted alright, nothing fancy but nothing too bad either.
