Very few places in Mumbai serve excellent breakfast and I’m glad I happen to find one such place – The Irish House at Pali.
Well, the ambience is pretty similar to the classic Irish House décor all over – wooden furniture, quirky quotes across, bar, tv to add the “sports” bar touch to it… It however has a different feel to it in d morning as compared to the evenings. With natural sunlight coming in, it adds a nice touch to the ambience. And the music is brilliant – love it at all times and breakfasts became more vibrant with it.
So we started with the Watermelon & Feta Salad which comprised of two big pieces of watermelon sandwiched with basil leaves and garnished with feta cheese. The watermelon was fresh and chilled and indeed very juicy and blended well with the taste of feta cheese. Loved every juicy bite of it – a refreshing start to our meal, indeed!
Classic French Toast: Two slices of bread served with maple syrup and fresh seasonal fruits on the side. The Toast was warm and delicious with the sweet maple syrup. Perfect.
Chicken Stew: Ah, this was the BEST!! An Irish style breakfast indeed – Slow cooked chicken stew with wheat beer and fresh rosemary. It was hot, tender cubes of chicken served with breakfast bun. Very filling, very awesome. A must must recommend. Please try!!
They also have a variety of freshly baked breakfast breads such as pain au chocolate, breakfast croissant and muffins. I tried the chocolate which was great but the serving was tiny.
And finally – Savoury Thyme Waffles: Such a different twist to otherwise chocolate / maple syrup variety of Waffles. These Waffles were fresh and crisp served with cherry tomato fondue and melted cheddar. A tangy and cheesy taste with every crunchy bite of Waffles. Awesome.
Irish House also has an option of their Irish Breakfast Trays which comprise of a choice of cereal, juice, assorted mini bread basket and choice of egg preparation/ Stew.
Amongst beverages we tried the Cold Coffee which was brilliant – chilled icy coffee that was not too bitter and rightly sweet, ensuring it lights you up!
Very courteous and warm hospitality indeed. The staff is friendly and helpful in recommendations based your taste. The service is decent – everything is prepared fresh!
Overall, I had an awesome time and I would definitely visit here again for breakfast. I strongly recommend this place if you’re in a mood to pamper yourself with a delicious breakfast meal. Enjoy!!
