The Skinny: Went to an Irish Bar & Grille in Down Town Los Angeles for a quick dinner before a night of heavy boozing at a friend’s birthday. Casey is a place that has a full bar, pool tables, television sets all over the place, and a menu with actual Irish food.
I got the Shepherd’s Boxty, Irish Pub Fries, and a pint of Bass Pale Ale.
The Good: Casey’s Shepherd’s Boxty is pretty much like Shepherds Pie, but it is made with ground Lamb, celery, onions, and carrots. It is served rolled up in a savory Pancake and with some gravy on top. The dish itself was tasty and the subtle gaminess of the Lamb added some nice depth to the flavors and whatever seasonings they put in it. The warm pillowy Pancake was nice too, even though it didn’t really taste like anything.
The Bad: The Irish Pub Fries weren’t bad, but it wasn’t as crispy as I wanted them to be. Since they were pretty big Potato wedges, I think they weren’t fried long enough and was steamed up from the inside while in the fryer.
Would you come back? Yeah, I’d like to try the Fish N Chips that cost $16.50.
