Terrace Arms March Guinness Food Festival
St. Patrick’s Day is celebrated on March 17, his religious feast day and the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over a thousand years. On St. Patrick’s Day, which falls during the Christian season of Lent, Irish families would traditionally attend church in the morning and celebrate in the afternoon. Lenten prohibitions against the consumption of meat were waived and people would dance, drink and feast—on the traditional meal of Irish bacon and cabbage.
I have never celebrated St. Patrick’s Day until last Friday when I was invited to participate in a food review session hosted by Guinness
and Terrace Arms
. I was the first to arrive so I lingered outside…
Terrace Arms @ The Strand
We had nachos while waiting for everybody to arrive. We were also served Guinness Draught that night :D
The nachos were served still warm and very crispy. Dipped it in the salsa sauce and I’m all good!
Our appetiser – Guinness Beef Consomme with Oxtail Won Tons. Bursting with Guinness goodness, we know we are heading towards a great night!
Breaded Prawns with Spicy Guinness Dip. The succulent prawns with tasty coat of bread are yummy to my tummy; crispy on the outside.. yet tender inside.
Tried dipping it in the spicy dip and Guinness exploded in my mouth! Pow wow I tell you!
Our main course is Grilled Chicken with Guinness Sauce. It was chicken breast, the part I least fancy. Nevertheless I took a bite but not before I drenched it with the Guinness Sauce! The sauce was awesomesauce! LoL! The mash potato was superbly done and the grilled greens on the sides were the first to clear! :D
Up next was the Guinness Beef Pie. Woo hoo! Being a pastry lover, this is definitely my FAVOURITE! Delish to the max, I’ll come back for more! Yesh!!
And just as I thought the night was going great, it became better with the arrival of our dessert – Guinness Apple Tart; infused with Guinness draught, this mouth-watering dish is sinfully GOOD!
Don’t believe when I said the food was great? See for yourself…
Just looking at them eat is enough to make you salivate! LoL!
By the way, did I tell you that we dined with someone special that night? My heart skipped a beat when I was told that he’ll be joining us for dinner!
He’s so CUTE!
Actor/Director – Alan Yun and da Submerryn :D
