To be honest, I did not know what is St.Patrick’s day until 2 years ago when I started to read blog, and all I know it Guinness is associated with this event which comes to a conclusion to me that St.Patrick’s Day = Guinness. Then only I get to know what the meaning is all about. It is a annual holiday that is widely celebrated on the 17th of March as to name after the Saint Patrick which is also known as Catholic holiday and had become a big celebration in Ireland after 1600s. Now with this annual event had become a global signature and widely celebrated around the globe.
Then back to my study life when I enjoy my very first encounter with Guinness was thought by a good friend of mine Mervyn and I still remember that time Mervyn and Mike keep telling me, lets go and enjoy BLACK JUICE. I was puzzle and thinking what the hell is Black Juice, not until we reach Crown Casino in Melbourne where there are happy hours going on, they order 3 pint for me. I was like Stim, how to finish some it taste awful. From there, they teach me how to enjoy this great drink till today, Guinness is still one of the drink top in my list. Seriously, a drink that toast to them for teaching me and also TO ARTHUR!
And to celebrate this great event, we had our very little outing in this restaurant.
Modern concept of interior with a classic 70’s style live band performance area. .
This place is what known as the cigar or the VIP room.
For smokers, definately outdoor is a great place to hang out too.
when we were seated not long and exchanging name cards, what was serve next is of course the Black Juice!
Most of the meal prepared that night are specially for this occasion and either, season with stout, mix with it or any you can think of.
It might look plain on this chicken strips but the hidden taste is it had been season with stout for couple of hours and deep fried. Dipping it with the mayonise is finger licking good.
Sausage is very juicy and meaty and the catch is the dipping sauce, that had mix with some stout and blend in well.
the meat in it had cook with stout too.
Except for deserts, they are originals. No alcohol involved.
You need to slice this open in order to get the umph out of it.
Chocolate that will flow out once you put through it.
A experience chef with more than 10 years in the kicthen that had come out with the great menu.
and all night long me and Ken
enjoy our stout not one glass but many glass.
Saucer and Sunny.
