Mc Gettigan’s in the Trade Centre Area is a popular destination as it’s the perfect place to grab a couple of drinks and a bite after work. We headed in here on a Saturday eve and gave their roast special a try.
The interiors are cozy and, the wooden and green theme gives the place it’s character. There was a soccer match playing on the big screen and the whole place seemed so vibrant and absolutely buzzing with energy. The service is polite and the place has a very relaxed vibe. Here’s a look at the meal we had.
Get Set Gobble:
~ Pork belly popcorn– The first thing that caught my eye was the popcorn that seemed like a great sharing plate of food while we sipped on our drinks. There is nothing more delightful than small bites of crispy meat. The pork is tossed in Soy honey and sesame seeds. They tasted better with a little sprinkling of extra salt on the top.
~ Roast Beef – Every Saturday & Sunday, Mc Gettigan’s serves up a traditional roast special with all the trimmings available all day. The meal comes with medium well done steak, gravy, potatoes and green veggies. Just to make you meal even better, add on the extra serving of gravy before you dig in and you will be pleasantly surprised! The gravy was spot on; rich and slightly thick in consistency. It was a pleasure devouring the meal; full of flavour and plentiful.
~ Roast half chicken – If you are not a fan of beef, there is always the option to try their roast chicken from the menu. The chicken is stuffed with sage and onion and served with crispy roast potatoes and, honey and thyme tossed root vegetables. The dish looked smashing but what’s really important is how it feels in the mouth. The chicken was tender inside and had a bit of caramelization on the top. The stir fried veggies at the bottom of the dish for us was a win. They were a handful of potatoes, beans, snow peas and probably the best carrots ever! By the end of the meal, we were completely stuffed and happy 🙂
