Tipperary's Pub2002 16 Avenue NW, Calgary
Great place on a Thursday
Submitted Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 12:04am [Dine in]

This was a great place to go on a Thursday night to catch the game. No matter where you sit there seemed to be a good view of one of the many TV's in the venue. It was an upbeat environment with a traditional yet modern Irish pub theme.

We ordered a variety of the $2 basket of dry rib special, fries and a side of rich, savoury and flavourful gravy that resembled KFC gravy. For the price and the 13 flavours of ribs to choose from, you really can't go wrong. This time around the ribs were juicy and plump, not dry and chewy like many other places.

I read the reviews on this place and was surprised at the mediocre response since I had such a good experience. But I guess the success of a pub is based on how consistently they can bring customers back in and consistency is based on so many factors. The cooks, the service, as well as the number of orders running through the kitchen at one time are only a few of the factors that can make these cheap rib or wing nights a hit or a miss. From my experience working as a cook in a fast paced pub environment, just a few extra minutes in the fryer can change any food item from juicy and crispy to dry and crunchy.

I can't speak for all the food items on the menu, but as far as what we ordered, everything turned out really well. I would recommend trying out Tipperary's, especially on a Thursday.

Good variety

This is a great Hong Kong style café that offers a quick meal at a reasonable price. If you have no idea how a Hong Kong style café might be like, picture an Asian Denny's. It's a loud and bustling venue with a lot of in and out traffic. If you like variety, here is where you will find an extensive menu of over 300 menu items. They have specials on a daily basis which consists of an entree, soup, rice or spaghetti, garlic toast and a drink. All this for no more than $15, tax and tip included. The service is fast and the food is worth every penny. When people ask for a good Chinese restaurant recommendation, I often reply with four questions "How traditional?", "How adventurous?" , "Who are you going with?" and "How much are you looking to spend?" This isn't the place to take your first date, but it offers good food that comes out quick and it is easy on the wallet. It's not hard to find a dish that is captivating for each person in the party. There is a wide range of selection from Sweet & Sour Pork with Rice to Deep Fried Pig's Intestine, if neither sounds appealing maybe just settle for a Ham & Egg Sandwich. Give this place a try, you wont regret it!
