    Default pub menus

    what food items should be on a proper pub menu?

    burger
    fish and chips
    wings
    rueben/rachael

    is that enough to satisfy about 95% of us?
    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I'm thinking that I saved one of Lefty's menus from the old pub, but don't know just where or if I still have it.

    Fried jalapeno chips,
    Fried pickles,
    BBQ brisket if you can manage it,

    and beer. Don't forget the beer. Get a good traditional IPA, none of these citrus IPAs, and Guiness.

    From a pub near me:
    THE VILLAGE INN SMALL MEALS

    BEEF LASAGNE
    THE VILLAGE BURGER
    FISH, CHIPS AND MUSHY PEAS
    CREAMY PEPPERED CHICKEN
    PORK CHOP
    DIJON CHICKEN
    LEEK STILTON POTATO BAKE
    SALT AND PEPPER BURGER
    STEAK MUSHROOM PIE
    CUMBERLAND SAUSAGE
    8 OZ GAMMON
    (AND EGG ADD PINEAPPLE FOR AN EXTRA 20P)
    CHICKEN BALTI AND RICE
    10 the pop.

    There are more choices for a full lunch.

    Posts 1 & 2 + the beer part of #5.

    The others are nice & I'd order them, but a good burger & good beer are the most important.

    In fact - in general a really good burger is a wonderful thing.

    this is the first I've heard of the place.
    I dunno if I'm doing a 4-hour roadie for pub grub, but I'm occasionally in Lancaster for work. At minimum this seems like a good stop on the way to/from Annapolis.

    There ya go. Middle of nowhere. Haven't been there in a bit, but it used to be a righteous stop.

    I'm surprised no one has said pizza.

    One local pub has a whole dedicated top notch pizza operation. Not on my normal routes, but sometimes go out of my way. Another has personal pizzas cooked in a small cast-iron frying pan. Excellent!

    Burgers. The main thing for me is burgers. Esp. a generous heap of chili-burger. At the coast, some of the best pubs also have seafood on their menu. Eggs Benedict, or Huevos Rancheros of the Smoked Salmon variation are both favorites. Crab omelets with delicious Dungeness Crab also.

    Joe is going to hate this, but I can't help myself.

    Yesterday I had a pizza that I should have hated. It was in a small Italian market that makes it's own pizza in a brick oven, pastries, good wines for sale, etc.

    The crust was ultra thin and wet, but the crust tasted better than just about any pizza I have ever had with that nice char on the bottom. The cheese was exceptional, the red pepper was chopped in BIG pieces, there was a very good sausage, and the onions were caramelized. The flavor overrode the wet thin crust and the pizza was delicious!

    Moral of the story - whatever you make, you start with the best ingredients and you are well along to a good meal.

    Don't worry, everyone KNOWS your own stunted background when it comes to matters of pizza. You 'imprinted' on the first type of pizza you were fed, and have not been able to overcome that bonding to the point where you were capable of expanding your horizons

    No currys, no noodles, no stir-fry.

    They're not good enough.

    After years of overseas flying, and too many meals eating weird stuff in weird restaurants with weird names that the flight-attendants dragged me to, I dug in my heels and started going to pubs.

    Hong Kong -- pub.

    Paris -- pub.

    Tokyo -- pub.

    And so on. Never regretted it -- in fact, looked forward to it.

    Anyone here old enough (stupid question) to remember when taverns had celophane wrapped sandwiches they would heat in a small oven (before microwaves) and jars of hard boiled eggs and pickled pigs feet sitting on the bar? I guess when we were drunk enough, around 2:00am, we would eat anything.

    Lots of bars on the Oregon coast had those two jars. Some still do. Tried the pigs feet once. Wasn't drunk enough. Love the eggs.
