Dirty Nelly's

Dirty Nelly's: Round Two. Earlier entry: February 28.

Dirty Nelly's signature burger is a one-of-a-kind creation, merging pork, veal & lamb in an unholy union of a 300-gram patty. Satisfyingly hearty, but not as outrageously flavorsome as expected, even though the patty is supposedly laced with bacon bits, jalapeno peppers & English cheddar. The fusion of meat is tender, but not quite juicy enough. Still worth sampling though.

This Caesar salad with quail eggs sounds tempting, thanks to the presence of pork bacon & pulled pork, but the final result seems unusually healthy, with a very light dressing and lean slices of meat.

Pork haters should sample the English crab cakes, which mixes brown & white crab meat with sweet corn. Succulent and fresh-tasting; what more could we want from a crab cake?

Pint of prawns, cooked in butter. Won't win brownie points from calorie-conscious customers.

Dirty Nelly's cocktails are creative and cheap, but not exceptionally potent. Here are the Dragonfly (midori lemon liquor, green tea liquor & vodka, layered with red wine) & Bloody Nelly (vodka, passion fruit puree, caramel syrup).

Cafe Toledo (a warm blend of bailey's, kahlua, chocolate syrup, americano) & Southern Rush (rum, mango puree, pineapple juice).

Pink Fresca (gin, pink grapefruit syrup, lemon slices, tonic).

    Sure works for me, hehe. I wonder more is needed to make it more flavoursome? Rosemary, mayhaps? (That's my solution to just about everything. Rosemary and black pepper too.)

  6. j: heheh, i wonder what a burger made of pork, veal, lamb AND duck AND chicken would taste like! ok, a frankenstein burger, but i wouldn't mind ordering it :D
    lfb: parsley, sage, rosemary or thyme? heheh. i confess, i often have problems identifying herbs by their taste and appearance. i have no trouble telling thyme (no pun intended!), but i'm not sure about sage. teach me, oh herbilicious one! =)
    ciki: i count down the hours everyday until i'm able to get sloshed! right now, i still have six more hours to go for today, arrrrgh! :D

  10. lfb: if you're referring to the rapper nelly, i'd have to agree with you. though then again, i haven't heard you rap yet, and we all know that you're capable of springing surprises :D

  11. Springing surprises? That's not the only thing I can spring. Hee.

  14. lfb: charging interested parties to watch it in on pay-per-view might earn you a healthy lump of cash! :D

  15. I have to admit, I've been frequenting the place ever so often. Got to love the fact that Guinness is being served so close to my home. According to their twitter page, they will be serving a "Guinness" infused menu soon.

  16. unka: maybe we'll bump into each other here someday. looks like i'll have to head back here when the guinness-infused menu is ready! but for me, the location is awful: nearly an hour's drive from both my home and office :D

  17. looks like this pub grub is dishing up some good food. Glad to see quail eggs served with caesar's salad. I just love these high in cholesterol eggs!

  18. eiling: yeah, tiny eggs but still hazardous to the health! but yeah, quail eggs are a nice alternative to the usual poached eggs :D
