Flanagan's Harp & Fiddle

flanagans shepherds pie

Ah…an Irish pub. I love these places. So woodsy and comfortable, they make me wanna order a Guinness. Nevermind that I hate beer. XD;;

Flanagan’s Harp & Fiddle is in Bethesda, MD, and we popped over there on Thursday night for dinner upon the particular recommendation of one of our party.

Naturally, I had to get the shepherd’s pie, my “go-to” dish for joints like this. (Actually, I was told by a friend that shepherd’s pie is made with lamb, and that the beef version is cottage pie. Most places call it shepherd’s pie anyway though). The pie came piping hot, savory insides overflowing from the bowl in a very mouthwatering manner. The mashed potato was buttery and gorgeous! However…I am sorry to say that the inside was a slight disappointment. Not only was it a bit on the watery side, it was also surprisingly tart, as though it’d been doused in vinegar. =U

Far superior to the shepherd’s pie was actually the appetizer of baked brie:

Hot, gooey and shamelessly rich! It oozed out from the slightly crisp exterior shell tinged with what tasted like a dash of cinnamon. Paired with warm pineapple on top of a toasted baguette, it was a mouthful of cheesy bliss.

OMG, the baked brie! *drool*
