Boxty at Mo's

The month of March always puts me in the mood for some Irish eats! Rather than the standard shepherd's pie, I decided to try something new this March.

Mo's Irish Pub in Noblesville offers the classic Irish dish, the boxty. I consider this concoction to be an Irish burrito. The potato pancake is generally wrapped around some sort of meat and topped with a sauce or dressing. Mo's went the extra mile and created the Reuben boxty, which I could not help but try. The meat was corned beef and the sauce was Thousand Island and a mix of creamy cheese. Sauerkraut was also included in the filling. It is like eating all of the best ingredients of a hearty sandwich and presenting them all in a tasty potato blanket. What's not to love? I would order this again and again any time of year!

Danny Boy Beer Works

The Reuben boxty left me a little parched, so I decided to try another Irish staple: a stout beer. I found a new favorite at the newly opened Danny Boy Beer Works in Carmel's West Clay. They have over 50 beers on tap, including several of their own creations. I highly recommend the Rock 'n' Rolla stout. It's a dark Irish stout that touts 100 IBUs (that's International Bittering Units for you non beer connoisseurs out there). It's a pretty strong brew, but there are plenty of other options if stouts aren't your style. My other favorites were the Training Day and Black IPA. Danny Boy is a pretty cool brewery that's housed in a fire station-type building and staffed with brewers and beer experts who will be sure to find a beer that suits you.

Next time I won't be waiting until March to try my new Irish favorites in Hamilton County!
