- February 4, 2020 / 9 min readThe ‘All Good Inside’ menu has different yet familiar flavour palettes centred around ‘preference inclusivity’.
Mumbai knows that going to a bar is much like coming home, your favorite server knows your go-to drink, your designated table and even your friend preferences. For 8 years counting, The Irish House has fulfilled this duty much like a marine in the army, with strict diligence and stout devotion. It is this customer fidelity that has given birth to its all-new food philosophy at The Irish House.
Its core team (from across the kitchen, bar, training, operations and marketing) has traversed the length and breadth of pub-loving countries across the globe, matched current gastronomy and mixology trends with Indian sensibilities, conducted repeated secret customer trials across months of experimentation to present the ‘All Good Inside’ menus and a brand new #TheIrishMood.
Crowdsourced over 300 days from journeys across United States, London, Ireland, Europe, South America, Middle East among other countries, the brand’s team has worked overtime to ensure that no one taste metric is out of place and to ensure that you have fun while you eat food that is good for your gut and drink cocktails pleasing your liver.
Sanju Arora, General Manager, The Irish House, said, “Hunger is a good sauce, especially when it comes to innovation. This menu has been in development for over a year when we first realized that Indian bars are making a mark across the globe but not for their food. #TheIrishMood, we believe, is a frame of mind. It is the cornerstone of our evolution and embodies our spirit of making merry with a conscience.”
“We dream of Irish House to be more than a bar, hence as part of this revolution, the ‘all good inside’ menu has been carefully crafted to bring a fresh change from the earlier one, packed with a bunch of healthier yet bar-friendly options, new flavor profiles, new ingredients and new cooking/ mixing styles for food as well as drinks. A lot of attention has been paid to ensure all dishes and drinks are brand new, with a healthy balance of vegetarian and non-vegetarian across categories to give sufficient options for lunch, dinner and everything in-between catering to all sorts of moods. As we set a new mood for patrons to come visit us, we aim to change the perception that bars currently exude in the nightlife space,” he added.
‘All Good Inside’ menu
The ‘All Good Inside’ menu has different yet familiar flavor palettes centered around ‘preference inclusivity’. There are extended grilled and baked options for clean eaters, diet-friendly food as well as cocktail options for keto/ vegan/ paleo lovers (yes, keto-cocktails!). At the same time, there are some seriously indulgent options for those looking to fulfill any and every craving for all things fried or potent.
With a balance of innovative cocktails, the various spirits have been respectively matched with a new flavor, fresher mixers, house-made bitters & liqueurs, theatrics, and new garnishes. The food menu brings a whole new range of house-made dips, sauces and cooking techniques to add unique, yet identifiable flavors combined with the use of new ingredients (spices, meats, seafood, vegetables), each with its own International inspiration. These have been tried and tested across the year with patrons to ensure that our offerings are of the highest standard possible.
