The Daniel O’Connell gastropub in North Adelaide takes the concept of traditional Irish fare with a creative twist to daring lengths. They also went to town with their drinks menu- their ‘Old Fashioned’ uses bacon infused bourbon, and their ‘A Sangre Fria’ Mary uses vintage sirloin washed vodka (I enjoyed that! Like a chilled raw soup in a glass. Strange, but delicious,).
Phil and our friend Jeff shared a Sunday Roast for two, and I ordered the vintage sirloin with leeks, spring onions, and whipped fat. The boys picked the hits, and I picked a miss. Bugger. Their roast beef was perfect. I picked the more interesting dish, but found that the flavours didn’t sit well with me- pickled spring onions (supposed to be inspired by kimchi), smelt like feet; and the cold whipped fat tasted was exactly as it sounds, now that I think about it.
Apart from my meal, everything else was gorgeous. The interiors, the atmosphere, the service, the interesting drinks- all thumbs up.
