Lunch at Waxy O'Connor's

今日のお昼ごはんは、同僚3人と一緒に昨夜オープンしたばかりのアイリッシュパブ、Waxy O'Connor's へ行ってきました。ここは私の会社のすぐ近く(歩いて5分ぐらい)なのですが、この場所は私が今の会社で働き始めてから (約8年前) 今までの間に経営者が3回も変り、これで4つ目のレストランです。今度のレストランは長続きしてくれるといいのですが。

For today's lunch, my coworkers and I went to the Irish pub, Waxy O'Connor's, just opened last night very close to where I work.  The owner at this place has changed 3 times since I started to work at the current company (almost 8 years), and this is the forth one.  Hope this one lasts for a long time.

私はサンドイッチメニューの中からフィッシュバーガーを注文。サンドイッチメニューには、飲み物、スープかサラダとフライドポテト (またはサツマイモのフライ) が付いてきて$10弱とお得です。私はクラムチャウダーを注文。味はおいしかったのですが、ぬるかったのが残念。

I ordered the fish burger, which came with the soda, clam chowder (or salad) and sweet potato fries (or normal French fries).  It is only less than $10.  The clam chowder was lukewarm and very thick although its taste was not bad.

After the soup was served, we had to wait for 1 hour to get our meals.  Today was the first day the lunch service started, and the restaurant was almost full, so I guess the kitchen was chaotic.  Hope they will get settled in the coming week or so and speed up their service.  The portions of our meals were very generous.  Next time, I will try typical Irish food (Shepherd's pie or something).
