[Contest] Fionn MacCool’s launches new summer menu

When Fionn MacCool’s invited me to welcome patio season with a summer menu launch on their patio, I was an instant yes. I like Fionn MacCool’s and how they strive to have lots of Made-in-Pub items on their menu. You definitely wont find frozen french fries here.

1-IMG_1567Bryan Jurek has been the brand chef for over two years. He’s a Cordon Bleu trained chef and has cooked all around the world. There are 10 new dishes on the new menu.
1-IMG_1532This fun and delicious take on grilled cheese was a favourite of mine. The Latke Grilled Cheese is made with potato cakes and then layered with sour cream and Cahill’s Guinness Cheddar cheese. It’s topped with a pickle! Be sure to keep the pickle on when you bite in!

1-IMG_1540The Farmer’s Salad was my kind of salad. Not an iceberg lettuce leaf in sight, this salad featured spinach leaves with grilled red onion and roasted Yukon gold potatoes. It was then tossed in a honey mustard vinaigrette and topped with bacon and a hard boiled egg.

1-IMG_1543 1-IMG_1549This very rich Lamb Pie was filled with Kilkenny braised lamb and served on a bed of sauteed spinach and mushrooms. Mmmm. They spent years researching this pie down to the amazing crust, and yes, it was worth it.

1-IMG_1556The Fish & Chips is a beer battered North Atlantic cod fillet served with fresh cut fries. The batter is made using Barking Squirrel Lager. Each piece is dipped and fried as ordered.

1-IMG_1560Tandoori Street Sandwich is grilled tandoori chicken wrapped in naan bread and topped with citrus mint yogurt. The tandoori sauce is made by a local family in Scarborough (cool) and the chicken is brined in house to make it juicier.

1-IMG_1565If you have room after all of that, congratulations, it’s time for dessert! Fried Bread Pudding is a nice way to end the meal. Brioche egg loaf bread pudding bites are fried, tossed in cinnamon sugar and topped with custard. It’s served with the most amazing salted butterscotch.

To wash it all down, there are two new cocktails.

1-IMG_1538Bikework Orange is Orange Pekoe infused Bombay Sapphire Gin, Stiegl Grapefruit Radler with fresh orange.

1-IMG_1551Somersby Mojito features Bicardi Superior Rum, Somersby cider, fresh lime and mint with candied lime syrup.
