Darcy's Donkey ~ "Foodie" Friday ~ 3/1/19

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

It's March First and guess what's right around the corner? You're right so make time to start prepping for St. Patrick's Day! What better way to get in the mood than to stop in at an authentic Irish pub and restaurant right here in the heart of Austin! You'll be so glad you did.



DARCY'S DONKEY                  https://www.darcysdonkey.com/

Located on Barton Springs Rd, Darcy's Donkey has a wide selection of Irish, Scottish & American whiskeys along with a superior Irish menu.  The main heart of the restaurant is on potatoes, traditional Irish meat pies, beer and whiskey. Once inside, you'll get a cozy, comfy feeling with its wood paneled interior resembling those authentic Irish pubs. While being heavy on the meat, vegetarians will delight in the flavorful 3 mushroom pie with white wine, a cream sauce and ricotta cheese truffle oil.


Here's a sampling of their menu...On the Appetizer menu - Rasher Wrapped Texas Quail Poppers - with semi boneless quail legs wrapped with rasher bacon and qochujang aioli...Steamed Atlantic Black Mussels  with harp broth, bacon, toasted soda bread and garlic aioli. On the Signature Prátaí (potato) combinations menu - Garlic Parmesan Truffle - traditional fries topped with garlic aioli, shaved parmesan cheese and a white truffle oil...Fine Irishman - traditional fries, cheddar, corned beef, roasted garlic served with beer mustard.  The Entree menu has Fish and Chips - beer battered cod fish, choice of french fries, mushy peas, house tartar sauce and malt vinegar...Pan Seared Organic Chicken Breast with colcannon mash, butter roasted corn and bacon mustard gravy...and Corned Beef and Cabbage - house brined served with confit potatoes, carrots, celery root and beer mustard.  For dessert, there's Chocolate Stout Cake with guinness and a Hawaiian (Manoa chocolate company) sauce...Baileys Cheesecake with Jameson's caramel sauce...and Spiced Apple Bread Pudding with whiskey anglaise.

Good morning Dorie. While I don't think this menu appeals to me I love the name of the place.

Sounds like an interesting place.  The name should make the curious stop in.

Good morning, Dorie... as far as I'm concerned, there's not much better than corned beef with cabbage on St Patrick's Day or any day of the year! And those desserts sound amazing!

Happy Friday Dorie. Another good restaurant choice in Austin TX. If in your area I would have a Shandy and my hubby would get a pint of Guinness. Then we would tackle the menu for something light.

What an interesting name for a restaurant.  I am not all that fond of Irish food, except for corned beef, and hold the cabbage.  Wishing you a wonderful weekend. A

Oh my goodness, while it sounds good, I can only imagine the calories in most of those meals. Lol.  I also enjoyed the video, Dorie. Happy March 1st.

HA HA what a unique name Dorie. I like corned beef sandwiches at some of the NY deli's, but not so fond of the cabbage...

Hello Dorie - dare I ask about the dessert selection. It appears this will not be the site of a future meeting of a Weight Watcher-type group.

"Darcy's Donkey". . .What a great name for that place.  Heck, that name would also be great on a craft beer label.

Dorie that is a very unique name for a restaurant.  I am a bacon and potato lover, so this place would a regular stop for me.

Don't know about the meat pies, but when I red corned beef and cabbage, I'm all in
