The thought of going back to school gives me the heebie-jeebies, but if I had to do it, it's good to know that in between classes at UBC, there are places like Mahoney's to get gooned.
The scotch shots are all doubles so what the hell, a double Chivas on the rocks for me.
The beers were served in ginormous pints.
Samplers for those that want to try a little of everything.
So, there's a big iaido seminar this past weekend and three high-ranking instructors came from Japan to teach. During their stay, we wanted to introduce them to new things, inlcuding food. We tried the Bangers and Mash, which turned out to be one of the favourites. The sausages were really good, and came with some mashed potatos and veg (some I could not identify, haha!) that were just as good. It was so good, that the sensei requested two more orders (we ordered a bunch of dishes and shared).
Yam fries, nothing new to us, but the sensei had never tried yam fries, only potato fries. This was popular for a short while, but they got bored of it quickly. The dipping sauce was good. I think it was chipotle.
There was a vegetarian amongst us and he ordered a soup and salad. He claimed it was good, but I have my doubts, because he was always eye-balling our food, haha!
Someone ordered a burger which was apparently good. Looked smallish to me though.
Overall, Mahony and Son's was a good experience. We shared a lot of food and I wasn't particularly hungry to begin with so our bill wasn't horrendous or anything, but I can see it getting pricy if you want to eat a lot. I guess that's fine because you have to be filthy rich (or have a massive student loan) to go to UBC anyway.
