Fado Irish Pub: It's not a Latke, it's a Boxty

I’ve had they pleasure of consuming a Boxty on a few occasions. Have you? Until last year, I was unaware of the Irish Boxty, which is the cousin of Tortilla Inflatable Water Slide Espanola and the potato latke. Fado Irish Pub offers several Boxty on their menu. This potato pancake dish is found in more rural parts of Ireland and cooked on a griddle instead of a frying pan. It is a perfect consistency to wrap up a hearty meal (like the Trinity Steak Boxty) or as a quesadilla. My favorite on the Fado Boxty menu is the Veggie Boxty Quesadilla. If you like grilled veggies, sour cream, cheese and marinated tomatoes, this might be the perfect pub dish for you.
