Sometimes when we need to relax, we would go to Irish Pub because rest assured, we would enjoy the atmosphere and come back home with new happiness. My favorite used to be Murphy’s (because it was the only one available in town) but then, since Molly Malone’s was opened 2 years ago, it has been my easy pick. Not only it’s very close to my house, but I also enjoy the food, drinks and being in the place itself.
Since it is a pub, there is very minimum lighting so the ambience is quite intimate and private. The place is divided into 2 areas, one is the typical traditional Irish bar and pub, the other one is live stage area for music performances.

That night, we went only for drinks but in the end we also ordered some food. I have never tried their main courses yet, but surely next time I’m gonna try them because they always make me drool!

Jameson (30 ml) On The Rock – IDR 55.000++

Kilkenny (pint) – IDR 82.000++

Lychee Martini – IDR 80.000++
Sweet and bitter, my favorite!

Ice Latte – IDR 30.000++

Flaming Bikini – IDR 90.000++
Molly’s Fully Loaded Nachos – IDR 75.000++
Deep-fried crisp corn tortilla chips, heaped with melted cheese, chunky salsa, jalapenos, home-made guacamole, and sour cream. This is one of the best nachos I’ve ever found in Jakarta. Everything was just perfect.

Onion Rings of Kerry – IDR 30.000++
Crispy deep-fried onion rings served with a choice of sweet chili, barbeque or garlic and herb dip.

Poutine – IDR 45.000++
Molly’s own homemade chips smothered in a rich gravy and freshly grated cheese.

Claddagh Calamari – IDR 40.000++
Squid rings lightly dusted in seasoned flour and deep-fried until golden. Served with our homemade tartar sauce and zingy sweet chili sauce.

When I am writing this, I just realized that almost everything that we ordered that time were fried stuffs, that’s so scary. The fried stuffs were really good, though, they were so crispy and dry, accompanied with our alcoholic drinks, we barely felt the oiliness. Next time I definitely will try their traditional Irish main courses or something :)
