Pint of Stellar; $8.70

Last catch up dinner with K before she head off to Europe (again!).

We meet up at P.J. O’Brien’s, an Irish Pub located in the East end of the city, a short walk away from Rundle Street. It’s a quiet Wednesday night with very few people, which means, a wider selection on figuring out where we wanna sit!

We shotgun a little booth tucked in a corner framed by a door frame. The restaurant is dark; the floors, tables and chairs wooden; old school game machines, pool tables and tv’s in one corner (boys corner), a small stage across the wall at the back and lots of interesting knick knacks covering every wall. There’s always something to look at!

The menu is limited and I find that it doesn’t correlate with what’s on their website, shame cause I was looking forward to the steak sandwich but settled on a burger instead. Our backpacker waiter (assumption made as per her Irish accent) fumbles at the till but manages to get our order through. Service ain’t great, but it ain’t exactly poor either.

Barmy beef burger: 1/3 pound homemade beef patty, bacon, egg, beetroot, cheese, Spanish onion, tomato, lettuce and tomato chutney served with fat chips; $15.90

A mini tower of food aka my burger was huge. Holy fricktards, a food challenge was on! The burger was juicy and flavourful owing much to the sweet and tangy tomato chutney. I wasn’t sure if I’d make it through the burger unscathed, but I did finish it, albeit a bit worse for wear. Food coma for sure. 🙁

Chicken Schnitzel served with garden salad; $15.50

And with that, I farewell K and count down the days til I see her again with stories, photos and gifts in tow! Safe travels! 🙂
