About The Restaurant
I have always maintained that if you do good honest seafood without mucking it around too much, a restaurant will always do well, for people love it. Add to that the other most popular cuisine, a taste of Italy that is, and you are really on a winner. Add to that again, a really nice smart contemporary premises with tip top friendly service and you are away in a hack.
Mulberry’s is located in the gorgeous village of Barna outside Galway and not only has delicious seafood and pasta dishes but something for everyone cooked and presented in an innovative way using lots of local produce, good vegetables, and viands and poultry.
Starters include seared Galway Bay scallops served with Clonakilty black pudding, cauliflower puree and bacon crisps, whilst succulent slow roasted belly of Irish pork comes with rocket leaves, Parmesan and cider soaked raisins – love that ‘apple’ touch.
Warm herb crusted goat’s cheese is with mixed leaves, roasted red pepper and red onion marmalade and can be had as either a starter or a main course. They also do a cracking Galway Bay crab, salmon, and cod fish cake to which they add an eclectic lemongrass, coriander and a jalapeno relish.
Pasta main courses can be had in a half dozen or so styles and then you choose whether you would like your choice with either spags, fettucine or penne. What a good idea. You can have your pasta either Carbonara – smoked bacon and fresh Parmesan shavings in a garlic cream sauce; Pollo – chicken, broccoli, red onions, sun dried tomatoes, chiili, in a pesto cream sauce, Arrabiata –roasted plum tomato and basil with chilli: Seafood – Clarenbridge mussels, smoked haddock and baby leaks in white wine and cream sauce, or Green – asparagus, courgettes, green beans and peas, hint of chilli and garlic in a cream sauce.
Mains include roast rack of pork served with Boxty potato cake, creamed leaks and bacon, whilst roasted chicken supreme comes with a sundried tomato and basil stuffing, garlic potatoes and rosemary jus. Prime fillet of Irish beef is served in a brace of 4 oz Glassan farm steaks with a spring onion mash and your choice of peppercorn sauce or rosemary jus. Getting back to the seafood then you can have roast monkfish with seared Galway Bay scallops, a Clonakilty black pudding mash and chorizo cream – my favourite dish – or roast fillet of wild Atlantic hake with a herb crust, chargrilled vegetables and a lemon Beurre Blanc. Fillet of Connemara salmon is baked and served with cannelloni of creamed spinach and a roasted garlic, shallot and white wine cream. Then of course there is always the fresh fish of the day, which is beer battered, deep fried and served with mixed leaves, Tartare sauce and home cut fries. And all are served with potatoes and vegetables.
Do leave room for scrumptious puds! It might be a rich chocolate fondant that is your heart’s desire, or a nut cluster of vanilla ice cream rolled in roasted cracked almonds served with a homemade chocolate and caramel sauce, or maybe homemade apple pie.
Whatever you fancy – you will enjoy Mulberry’s.
