Dublin Calling Has You Covered for St Patty's Day

Originally a popular hangout in the St. Lawrence area, Dublin Calling has since moved to the Adelaide West corridor. Situated on the second floor, the roll-up windows promises to transform the bar into a cool open space when the warm weather returns. Who knows, with the bout of luck Toronto has experienced lately, those windows may be opened for St. Patrick’s Day.

Pints of green beer without a balance of food can be dangerous. At Dublin Calling’s grand opening party, I sampled my way through tons of nibbles and they certainly have enough fried delights to keep a drinker satisfied.

It wouldn’t be a pub without fish and chips with a crispy flaky batter and plenty of tartar sauce.

For something to share and snack on, the deep fried mac ‘n’ cheese or deep fried pickles lend themselves to easily eat at the bar.

However, if you can score a table and don’t mind a bit of a mess, their chicken wings are fantastic! Large sized batter wings slathered in tons of sauce and toppings. Pictured below is a party sized platter of the garlic and parm (substituted with feta during the opening party). Unfortunately, I couldn’t get a picture of the Kung Pow version, my favourite of the night – so innocent at first with the sweet and salty glaze, only to pack a POW of heat at the end.

Not everything was fried, they have a selection of wraps, sandwiches and burgers. The Irish burrito was an interesting combination of corned beef, potato, cheese and sauerkraut. The mustard drizzled on top, although making it messier to eat, made the wrap.

Drinking games can be brought up a level at one of the dart lanes (six in all) or through a game of pool.

For me, someone whose eye-hand coordination falters even without drinks, it’s best to just stay on the dance floor.  After all, it’s the time of the year when stamping along to anthems and doing the do-se-do is celebrated. Dublin Calling has you covered this St. Patty’s day.
