Irish restaurant had been a stranger to me for years as we rarely had a real chance of indulging in Irish cuisine, and now we no longer need to take hours of long flight just to grab a taste of Irish cuisine, it is now made available in Malones Irish restaurant and bar. Not known to me before being invited by my friend to have Friday night hangout, i was told by friends that it is a place you rather call bar than a restaurant as most patron here drink beer, so i guess having a few pint of beer is inescapable.
Decorated using open bar and vintage concept, it is quite a comfortable restaurant bar you like to visit especially during your Friday night session with your love one or colleague. Staff here are quite busy with their work, as we enter we almost ignored by the staff and we have to personally ask for help from the staff to be seated, i guess the part of coordination was not done perfectly.
Served in a stylish beer glass, the Guinness served with this glass make looking at the beer itself is so enjoyable and tempting to drink it. Couple with the good environment given by the restaurant atmosphere and the patron who chat and have fun as they enjoying their beer, it is no wonder such a place is full with office worker during Friday night.
Drinking beer without any snack is kinda boring, so the four of us decided to order some hot dog and mini burger to feed ourselves while chit chatting and slowly sipping on the beer. Thus hot dog, which i forgotten the name , is served with chili and hot dog slices, fit in with our beer as it add some spices to our taste bud on the ice cold beer. Texture of the hot dog meat was good and juicy, definitely a good side dish to couple with beer
Well, this one isn't that great, a stack of mini meat with some vegetables and very small bun. It is quite hard to eat these burger without getting your hand dirty as its small size make the handling process fairly hard. As you chew the burger, you find that it is actually very hard to bite and the texture of the bun is not great either. I will not recommend this dish, it sound nice but it does not taste nice at all.
On this special Friday occasion, we are lucky to witness an Irish band to perform with a Japanese drummer, though it can be quite noisy but i see most of the customer here enjoying the loud music and even dance together, this scenery you won't normally find it in restaurant, but in Malones it is still possible. Enjoy the music yourself here:
In a nutshell, pricing wise is quite expensive and not really value for money especially for food. However it is disputably a place to hang out for your Friday beer, prices for beer seems more reasonable than the price for food. Credit card and cash are both accepted, service crew is quite attentive and sometimes come over to ask you if you want to buy more beer, can be quite annoying for some customer.
