The Irish House Kurla | Power Lunch Menu | Taste Meets Health | Food Review | Food Photography

Situated on 1st floor of humongous Phoenix Marketcity Mall, The Irish House brings the same charm, rustic decor, chilled pub vibe and a decadent food + beverage menu as at its all other outlets. Celebrating the joyous way the Irish live their life, with loads of beer and happy mischief, this is one place that always makes me remember the pub the Harry Potter gang goes to have Butterbeer :D 

A stand-alone restaurant and a diner situated inside a mall have some obvious ambiance differences but it is not very stark here. It has the same pleasantness and friendliness. Staff is very knowledgeable, service is fast and while it is commonly not expected for a pub to have a vast food menu, The Irish House succeeds in doing so. We were here to review their newly launched Power Lunch Menu that takes care of TASTE + HEALTH through well-balanced and good-portioned dishes. Price wise, value for money.

In DRINKS, we tried-

GREEN APPLETINI- Green Apple, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice, Fresh Lime,  good flavors, tangy.

TANGERINE MOJITO- Orange Juice, Fresh Lime, Mint, flavors were good,it was refreshing but it also had too much ice.

SALTED CARAMEL & APPLE SHAKE- Apple Juice blended with Salted Caramel Shake, mild and fragrant, good for those who like less sugary drinks/this will work as a light dessert.

CHOCOLATE & PEANUT BUTTER SHAKE- Chocolate Milkshake blended with Peanut Butter, I am a chocoholic and I love decadent, dark, dense chocolate. This one was good but mild. More chocolate/darker version of chocolate would make it perfect.

The main attraction for us was their Power Lunch Menu, each of these dishes is enough as a complete meal for a person and we found them to be high on nutritional content (not just slathered in cheese). 

GRILLED COTTAGE CHEESE LASAGNE- Cottage Cheese layered with Spiced Spinach and Crunchy Grilled Veggies on a bed of Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce, MUST-HAVE, it was so wholesome and delicious. Every element shown on its own as well as together.

HOMEMADE WHOLE WHEAT PAPPARDELLE- Pappardelle Pasta with roasted Cherry Tomato Fondue, Capers and Basil, I did not expect it to be so good but could not stop having it at all. Bursting with flavors and health, the pasta was well cooked and sauce/vegetables ratio was just perfect. MUST-HAVE.

CRISPY POTATO ROSTI- Rosti with homemade Beetroot Horseradish, Sour Cream and Chives, had homemade feel, a bit on calorific side, LOVED how the crispiness of rosti, sweetness of beetroot and sour cream all worked together. Did not feel heavy at all. Simple but brilliant dish. Am salivating just thinking about it :D

VEGGIES QUESADILLAS- Stuffed with Cheese, Assorted Peppers, Refried Beans and Jalapenos. Served with Corn on Cob, Fresh Salsa and Sour Cream, wholesome, filled generously and the salsa provided a very cooling fresh touch to the whole dish. Corn on Cob was especially juicy, so delicious.

GRILELD CORIANDER PESTO COTTAGE CHEESE TACOS- Soft shell Tortillas with Charred Sweet Corn, Tomato Pineapple Salsa and Cheddar Cheese, another MUST-HAVE. A bit messy to eat, flavors are AMAZING. There is density of cottage cheese, juiciness of corn, cheese and then the natural sweetness of pineapple salsa, just imagine all the flavors together in every bit. A beautiful culinary journey. LOVED.

This hungry hippo is completely bowled over by the wonderful POWER LUNCH MENU and will definitely be making repeat visits to enjoy them again and again :)
