Craic-ingly Tasty St. Paddy’s at TriBeCa

Location: TriBeCa Bar & Grill, Fenwick Road, Giffnock

I tend to have a bit of a paddy if I don’t have a Guinness on St Patricks Day. Saint Cubie (there was actually a St Cubes, it’s not the Guinness talking) is meant to be buried in Ireland, so I like to claim a close allegiance with our emerald-bloodied cousins across the water. In honour of that (like much of the rest of the world) for at least one day of the year, I pretend to like the black stuff. However, a Monday and a school night wasn’t the best of drinking buddies for a party of Irish standards, so to avoid feeling too green on Tuesday, I decided to go for dinner and a half instead.

Since Irish American’s do St Paddy’s like nobody else, I thought I’d try out the new Tribeca South (New York Kitchen) for their special St P’s promotion. Build your own burger and a pint for £9.99 (making the Guinness a seriously satisfying 4p!). Tribeca do brilliant diner-style food: their pancakes are stacked to the rafters and the milkshakes could feed a family of four. It’s not just the food that’s authentic, the portion sizes are too.

The burger was craic-ing, as was the Guinness, and by the end of the night I was a completely stuffed – but very contented – little leprechaun.
