Vancouver Cheap Eats: Irish pubs
With March 17 just around the corner, celebrating St. Patrick’s Day may be high on your priority list. There’s no harm in getting started early by warming up with a few of pubs serving up grub for $10 or less. So before downing a pint of Guinness, check out where to #nomnom on great cheap eats at some local Irish spots.
The Blarney Stone
Starting off this list with the King of the Pubs, The Blarney Stone is a local monument for all things Irish. When hunger strikes, order the Parmesan Truffle Fries, Sliders, or Deep Fried Pickles, each for under ten bucks.
Address: 216 Carrall Street
Doolin’s Irish Pub
If you’re looking for a mix of delicious food, good drinks, and a fun atmosphere, Doolin’s is your spot. Try the BBQ Pulled Pork or Margherita Flatbread for $10, or opt for the Pint Size Happy Hour Menu from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday to Friday, which serves up all of the pub faves like dry ribs, poutine, and Irish Nachos for $4.50 with purchase of a beverage.
Address: 654 Nelson Street
Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub
You can’t get more authentic than Dubh Linn Gate Irish Pub, as the original was designed and crafted in Ireland in 1997, then transported to Whistler before a second location found its way to Vancouver’s Main Street. Here it’s best to show up on Tuesdays when wings are $10, or between 3 and 6 p.m. when all appies are 25% off. This includes the Scotch Eggs, Black Pudding Toasties, and Warm Dubliner Cheese & Kale Dip. (Bonus: this happy hour extends Sunday to Thursday, 9 p.m. to close!).
Address: 1601 Main Street
The Wolf and Hound Public House
From poutine to tacos, it may look like pub grub for under $10, but these chefs use local free range meat and Ocean Wise seafood whenever possible. Cheers to that!
Address: 3617 West Broadway
Mahony & Sons
Whether you’re strolling along the seawall or in-between study sessions, pop by any of the three Mahony & Sons locations for their tasty Panko Tenders for under $10. Dining with friends? Pool in your share and opt for the Mahony Platter with Calamari, Dry Ribs, Panko Tenders, Potato Chips, Ciabatta and wings.
