St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner hence to warm things up, Melvin, Tania, A and I went to Delaney’s @ Federal Hotel for a pint of ‘Black Gold’ to warm up for the event.
When I told my friends about Delaney’s, none of them know about the place. Apparently, the place has been around for more than 10 years.
Even the façade and interior looks old school.
Although it was a Friday night, the place wasn’t crowded. It also had a live band playing some nice tunes.
I was told that over 100 pubs are having a Guinness promotion and Delaney’s is one of them. The promo’s name is Guinness St. Patrick’s Finger Food Festival. I also heard that you can get a redemption stamp card from the barmen to win Guinness St Pat’s hat. All you need to do is to collect 12 stamps.
You have a few choices of finger food. For us, we ordered the Chicken Wing Balls with French Fries.
Duck Meat Spring Roll – not part of the promotion but sounds interestingggg
Waiting for my Guinness to come – Cant wait! Drink fake 1 first..nomnomnom
Here it is!!! woooo My Black Gold!
Chicken Wing Balls – I thought it would look something like fishballs.
Oh, it comes with a free gift. A luggage lock! Great!
I don’t know why but the Guinness Draught at Delaney’s tasted much better. It was fresh and milky! After a long day at work, a big gulp of the Black Gold is magic!
Guinness Stout has always been my preferred choice of alcoholic drinks. It doesn’t give me runny nose like beer and it doesn’t give me hangovers like hard liquor. I wish every bar serves Guinness Stout!
After finishing our finger food, we ordered more food.
Cheese baked potatoes – zomggg the cheeeseee. It came with a generous amount of potatoes – baked to the core with melted cheese spread all over it. Absolutely yummy.
Sheppard’s pie – came with a thick layer of mash potatoes covering a layer of stewed beef. Tassty!
After eating 3 meals with potatoes (French fries, baked potatoes and mashed potatoes), we were stuffed!
As a lead-up to the big day at 1 Utama, 13 GUINNESS outlets across the country including those in Penang, Johor, Melaka, Ipoh, Kota Kinabalu and Kuching will be hosting their very own St. Patrick’s bashes, which will see a combination of live music and fun, exciting activities.
St. Patrick’s Day will be held on 19 March 2010 at 1 Utama, from 6pm onwards. There will be plenty of scrumptious food and entertainment. You can even learn how to pour your own perfect pint and keep the glass – all for RM20!
Remember, dress in green!
