Tigh up a treat

Irish Daily Mail - YOU - - FOOD & DRINK NEWS -

Tigh Neach­tain is one of my favourite pubs in Gal­way and I’ve whiled away many an af­ter­noon sit­ting by a roar­ing fire, peo­ple­watch­ing the tourists pop­ping in and out, chat­ting with locals. That friendly at­mos­phere is echoed up­stairs at Kas­bah Wine Bar, where shar­ing is en­cour­aged via a menu that has been re­cently tweaked to in­cor­po­rate au­tum­nal delights. Shar­ing plates and boards are a great way to sam­ple as much as pos­si­ble – among the most pop­u­lar are the Gubbeen meats with chut­ney and pick­les, or the Ir­ish cheese board with au­tum­nal fruits, quince paste, and home­made crackers. Main dishes range from Flaggy Shore oys­ters with el­der­berry, Vel­vet Cloud and tar­ragon, to Her­t­erich’s pork tacos, burnt pineap­ple salsa and ranch to the ri­cotta and spinach dumplings with beet­root purée and hazel­nuts. Leave room for dessert though, the Kas­bah dough­nut filled with tof­fee, pra­line cream and ap­ples is worth the trip to Gal­way alone. It’s open for din­ner mid­week, lunch and din­ner on Satur­days, and brunch and din­ner on Sun­days. If you’re vis­it­ing mid­week, you can try some of the of­fer­ings via Tigh Neach­tain. Call Kas­bah on 085 734 0164 or Tigh Neach­tain on 091 568 820.
