‘Eat, drink and be Irish!’
Almost every year (except for the first two years of the pandemic), thousands of Malaysians dress up in green, don goofy hats and gather in pubs around the country to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Looks like March 17th, 2022, ain’t gonna be any different!
In conjunction with St. Patrick’s Day, SOULed OUT outlets in Kuala Lumpur, Bangsar South and Kota Kinabalu, as well as WIP at Bangsar Shopping Centre and WIP On The Park at Marc Residences, will be serving Irish-themed food and drink throughout the month of March to keep the St. Patrick’s Day spirit alive. What’s more intriguing is that the selected cuisine has been blended with the most Irish of beers and the world’s most loved stout, Guinness!
For this year’s Irish celebration, SOULed OUT Kuala Lumpur will be offering an authentic Irish experience to partygoers on March 17th, when they will be greeted and handed an iconic black and green stovepipe hat courtesy of Guinness; enjoy a variety of fairground games (such as the claw game and high striker); watch a St. Paddy’s parade complete with mascot; and groove to live music and traditional tap dancing. Guests can also visit the ‘Guinness Tavern,’ which was built specifically for this event, right across the street. Patrons can also expect a picture-perfect pint of stout from the appropriately named ‘Guinness Stoutie,’ with their faces or other photographs printed in foam art for memories, or to make the perfect social media post.
And what’s a party without food? SOULed OUT and WIP will be offering tasty seasonal delights that will surely tempt your taste buds. Here are some special dishes you can expect:
Beer Can Spring Chicken
For RM28++, you can have a full roasted spring chicken brined in Guinness with a zesty mango salsa, crunchy pumpkin fritters, and a Guinness-infused BBQ sauce. I don’t know about you, but I think this chicken is another level of sexy!
Guinness Beef Stew
Traditionalists will like the RM30++ Guinness Beef Stew with robust veggies and a mushroom and chickpea ragout served on toasted bread.
Guinness Battered Fish & Chips
The Guinness Battered Fish & Chips are perfect for pescatarians and seafood enthusiasts. It has a dense and sturdy Threadfin Fish that unleashes its moist sweetness thanks to a touch of Guinness in the batter, which makes the final result extremely crispy when it comes out of the frying. This masterpiece costs RM40++ and comes with hot chips, guacamole, cabbage, and a Guinness-infused tartare sauce.
Leprechaun Popcorn Chicken
The Leprechaun Popcorn Chicken, available for RM18++ at SOULed OUT outlets and RM24++ at WIP outlets as a festive appetiser or for sharing, is a great pub snack.
