L Mulligan Grocer

A self-purported ?eating and drinking emporium?, at first glance L Mulligan Grocer resembles an old mans? pub. But delve a little deeper ??the food and drink menus inserted into long-forgotten novels, beer pairing suggestions, jam jars stuffed with wild flowers, Scrabble tile ‘reserved? signs – and you’ll discover a much younger, hipper demographic. The menu is full of locally sourced, seasonal ingredients, so subject to change, however it’s unlikely they’ll ever get rid of the popular Scotch egg starter – free range egg encased in seasoned rare-breed pork and a herb crumb (there is also a vegetarian version). If you like your food steeped in booze then L Mulligan is manna, from steamed mussels in a Leffe Blond broth to Connemara whiskey butter with ribeye steak to Hoegaarden gravy with the Sunday roast. And drinks-wise L Mulligan ticks all the boxes and more, boasting over 100 imported craft beers in addition to their Irish portfolio, and in excess of 150 international whiskies ??*hic!*L_MULLIGAN_1
