Murphy blood coursing through my veins is a point of pride for me. I’m an Irish girl at heart, just one of the reasons we frequent Kilkenny’s Irish Pub, located on historic Cherry Street in Tulsa. We celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary this weekend with some of our favorites at Kilkenny’s and I would be remiss if I didn’t share them with you. Kilkenny’s is one of the most popular eating spots in town and holds its own with consistently delicious grub, a well-rounded menu, excellent service and authentic pub atmosphere.
Irish Nachos, crafted with house cut and fried potato chips and fresh salsa. You couldn’t create this flavor with just any ‘ole potato chip.
My favorite for the evening: The Craigue Boxty, an Irish potato cake stuffed with lobster, shrimp & crab after being sauteed in garlic and white wine sauce. Then the boxty is covered with their house O’Fredo Sauce. I know it looks good, but it tastes even better.
DJ’s favorite for the evening: The Tullamaine Tenderloin, cooked to order (grilled or blackened) & covered with savory whiskey mushroom sauce and your choice of side. Shown, oyster dressing. Their colcannon and champ are both very good too!
Dessert: Sticky Toffee Pudding, pound cake pan-fried in the most delectable caramel toffee you’ve ever tasted then topped with ice cream and nuts. As if we hadn’t eaten enough already, we should have left this well enough alone, but it sounded so good. Please excuse the messy photo, but when it arrived, we couldn’t keep our spoons out of it long enough for me to retrieve my camera.
And, last but not least, our choice of beverages. Normally, I would go with a Guinness but they serve Tank 7 (draught), my new favorite Boulevard beer. My very manly man went with one of his favorites, Ace Pear Cider (draught). It’s actually quite good and he’s not afraid to order a more ‘girlie drink’. Must be the English in him.
