I would like to send a special thanks to all that played. BTW, Sharon, the Wolfhound said they will be adding a soup and sandwich combo soon.
Here are their comments:
I'm with paul: I don't mind a big menu, especially in a non-Korean restaurant, while in Korean restaurants a smaller menu is a sign of a better quality dish, and I'm not qualified to say much about upper-crust fine-dining anyway, in Canada as well, a middle-range place like Wolfhound tries to have a big enough menu to have something for everyone. Frankly, I'd rather see a menu that's dauntingly big than one with glaring omissions.
My favorites are the hamburger options, the irish stew, and the beef and mushroom pie. I haven't tried some of the items, but so far none have let me down.
As a guy with a milk allergy, I always want to know if the mashed potato dishes have milk in the mix -- if they do, I can't eat it, and I can't remember if I was able to special-request a dairy-free mashed potatoes.
With the burgers, I also appreciate the option to substitute the chips with a house salad... on the other hand, I don't think I've ever been asked by a waiter whether I'd like chips, mashed potatoes, or salad.
Especially now that the coffee cups are getting filled to the top, the last item on the menu I want to mention is the apple crumble, in which the crumble was powdery rather than crumbly, and totally bereft of caramelly, sticky, crispy oats, the way I love my apple crumble... can't remember clearly if the apple had individuated slices (good), or if it was all mashed into a paste (bad). Anyway, I do remember being disappointed by the apple crumble.
Finally... ever thought about adding poutine to the appetizer menu? Or maybe that's just a Canadian's pipe dream.
