Sorry for my long hiatus from the world of blogging. I’ve just been busy with work and was also lazy to update the blog when I get home…….
Anyway, here’s an Irish Pub we ate at a few weeks back. Asgard, Irish Pub & Restaurant is located in Cambridge, MA and offers both indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outdoors coz we had Brady with us that day. We soon found out that apparently, the city of Cambridge does not allow pets on the premise. We had to tie Brady up to a tree nearby and keep a watchful eye on the poor confused guy.
Anyway, I did not take much pictures due to poor lighting and shaky hands. =( Here’s what we ordered;
1) Artisan Cheese Platter – A combination of imported Irish Cheese, sliced pears (canned), mandarin oranges (canned), pickles and assorted cheese @ $14 (Bottom Right). I only like the Dubliner in the selection.
2) Bangers 'N Mash - Grilled light-seasoned pork sausages served on Colcannon mashed potatoes with onion gravy and topped with onions straws @ $14 (Bottom Left). I’ve always heard about it, never had it and so wanted to try it. It was a great choice. The pork sausages were so juicy, flavorful and filled with porky goodness! I also learn a few days later that Colcannon mash potatoes is actually mash potatoes with cabbage, an Irish dish. Yums! I could use more of the gravy though.
3) Beer Battered Fish & Chips - North Atlantic cod fillets dipped in our beer batter and fried to a golden brown. Served with Kinsale fries, house-made coleslaw and tartar sauce @ $14 (Bottom Right). The husband and Rob ordered this. It came with 2 large pieces of quite delicious fresh fish in a not-too thick batter. The chips were not too bad too I think. I liked that they served the entree on a newspaper like paper. =)
Service was decent. Nothing too spectacular, not too shabby either. All of us did enjoy the great food and company. Although, I was feeling quite uneasy having Brady tied to the tree and him trying to get our attention.
I will definitely return to Asgard for some yummy pub food….minus my four legged companion =) Check out their menu HERE. Don’t bring your dog, unless you’re wiling to tie her/him to the tree!
