Hills and mountains are formed by vast underground food deposits, which, over time, stretch the landscape into soft mounds of untapped edibility. Dig into the bounty of the Emerald Isle with today’s deal: for $15, you get $35 worth of traditional Irish pub fare and drinks at Molly Malone's Irish Pub, located in the Kensington district. This warm, welcoming pub serves up traditional Irish fare with a contemporary twist. The menu features jig-inducing dishes such as the fish and chips, a fish fillet dipped in Guinness Stout batter and fried until crispy, served with home fries and house-made coleslaw ($14) and the Cracked Peppercorn Burger, a half-pound of beef coated with cracked black peppercorns and topped with Swiss cheese, onion rings, lettuce, tomato, and blue cheese dressing ($13). Diners can fill digestive fuel tanks on the roof top patio or warm the stout-filled cockles of their hearts by the wood-burning stove.
- When I’m in the mood for pub food, a beer, and good quality people watching, Molly Malone’s in Kensington is a pretty safe bet. – Dan’s Good Side
- Molly Malone's is a good place to go for a very typical pub experience (in a good way). The food is good, the portions are huge and the price is right. On a dreary fall evening, they were a good choice for some food and bevvy with friends. – Wendy P., Yelp
Molly Malone's Irish Pub
At Molly Malone's Irish Pub, rounded stone archways and etched windows evoke the ambiance of an authentic Irish pub. Weathered wooden tables and electric-candlestick chandeliers add to the feeling, enclosing diners in a cozy space where Guinness flows like apple juice at daycare. In addition to Ireland's flagship brew, the pub imports Kilkenny Irish Cream Ale and Harp Lager. Several of the pub's 40 or more brews even make it into meals: Guinness goes into the cheese that smothers corned beef and cabbage, and Alexander Keith's IPA adds flavour to the batter that coats fish filets. When the weather is fair, the pub opens up a sunny outdoor patio where visitors can enjoy upbeat music and signature cocktails.
