something o'fishy

Molly Malones, an Irish pub along Circular Road which is fully-packed even on the weekday nights! But who can you blame? They serve great food and beer plus a live band promised to rock the premises. I saw a Molly Malones while holidaying in Phuket but didn't get the chance to try the food there. Shall do it next time yo! Back to the story, we almost couldn't get seats as I recalled they don't seem to take reservations. It took a while before we got the waiter's attention and ordered their famous fish and chips to share as well as one pint of beer each.

I have never been a fan of the plastic and fake Irish pubs that fill every corner of the world, and Singapore seems to have a glut of them. This, however, is the oldest Irish pub in Singapore (it comes of age celebrating it's 18th birthday this year), and probably the most genuine one I have set foot in outside of the Emerald Isle itself!

Alongside the staple Irish stew and their famous fish 'n' chips there is a nice selection of other western food - I had the lamb chops, and with the mint gravy they were to die for. Considering the price of lamb, the portion was pretty decent too. And speaking of portions, if you opt for the chocolate cake dessert make sure you have someone to share it with, or else stick to salad for your main! Massive slab of cake with a lovely bitter sauce and nice ice cream that tasted like the home made stuff I used to get at my great-aunt's house in the UK.

Drinks - well, Guinness would be standard, but I prefer to drink the Kilkenny - both of which are on tap. A nice whisky to finish (I sinned by having not having an Irish whiskey, plumping instead for a Scotch from their rather nice range) which left me wishing I still smoked cigars, especially since Molly's is possibly the only pub in town with an indoor smoking room.

All in all, well worth the visit, and I will be back!

There wasn’t much activity along this stretch of road on a Sunday. Most shop fronts were shrouded in darkness and we arrived at the pie shop with a groan as it displayed the same stillness. It should’ve been open, according to the operating hours, except that there’s a piece of paper unceremoniously plastered to the glass door that stated otherwise. Oh well… tough luck!

We were too hungry to contemplate an alternative. Hence, we retraced our steps (only a few, by the way), popped into Molly Malone’s without the slightest hesitation and swiftly plonked ourselves on the wooden chairs. We were back on familiar ground, and everything looked just as I remembered it.

Established since 1995, this quaint rustic tavern was the first of its kind to open in Singapore. Interestingly, it’s designed and built in the Emerald Isle before being shipped and reassembled here.

For a start, we ordered snowball ($15), which was just about the only cocktail I could truly enjoy. It’s innocuously sweet, mildly fizzy (the rare occasion when I tolerate a carbonated drink) and most importantly, totally lacking the bitterness of alcohol. It tasted as if there were merely juice and sprite but alcohol was indeed present, albeit in a very small quantity.

The irish stew had always been satisfying. However, since K had also tried it before we decided it’s time for something different.

The haddock fish & chips ($22) had a perfect crisp but the fish was a tad dry. So it’s a good thing the tartare sauce was competent enough to distract us from this flaw. Not to mention the other dips lined up on our table – mayo, chili and tomato. Much to our chagrin, we completely forgot to ask for curry sauce!

As for the shepherd’s pie ($18), it came with minced lamb topped with a thick layer of creamy mashed potato. The meat was moist, tender and flavorful without being overly gamey.

We’d never ordered desserts in the past and were disappointed at how the sticky date pudding  ($9) turned out. Served with toffee sauce and homemade caramel banana ice cream, the cake was extremely hard, dry and coarse. Unfortunately, the one and only choice on the menu failed to delight us.

The pub was pleasantly quiet as it permeated warm coziness. The sports channel provided entertainment while staff were friendly and efficient. We couldn’t have hoped for a better chillout spot (barring the lousy dessert) to avoid the crowd but the weekend menu was somewhat limited.

Total damage: $64 nett

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
