Oh me lucky night, when I was invited to attend the Dublin Calling opening media event to profile their new location at their location on 250 Adelaide street West!

When we walked in we were greeted to a very festive welcoming. Men were concentrating on their darts skills and women in green beads, hats and feather headbands.
I found a table that gifted me with a Irish hat, candle, beads and St. Patrick’s Day press on nails – this set the tone for the night that this was going to be FUN!
The new space is large and I had a concern that like many “pubs” it would feel generic. This was dispelled by having niche areas such as the dart location, shoot pool, bar and tables. I found a table in the corner and immediately the pub became a full house.
Dublin Calling is known for its TALL daiquiri’s which was fresh and delicious... did I say BIG?
The pub serves up traditional pub fare but with a signature Irish twist!
Signature fried macaroni, which I never tasted before was pure cheddar delight! So crispy and crunchy on the outside with a soft inside of melted cheese. It became my husband’s favorite selection. I became partial to the jumbo fried pickles, drizzled in dill sauce. I kept laughing about how many workouts I would need after the fact, but it was worth every bite!
All pubs have their take on “wings” but these wings were like nothing I ever tasted before!
I tasted the KungPow, encrusted in crushed peanuts and the Garlic Parm, sprinkled generously with fresh parm cheese. Truly one of a kind flavors! The food went on and on from Corned Beef wraps, signature potatoes, Garlic bread was again, like no other garlic bread I have ever tasted! It was one delicious taste after another.
One week later, and I am still craving!
