Murphy’s Bar & Grill – Honolulu, HI

While I’m not a big drinker, I am down to go to a homey bar with good food as I have displayed in past posts. Murphy’s Bar & Grill has become one of those places for me, I also love walking through downtown past all the historical buildings to get here, one of my few favorite things. While they are an Irish pub, they do serve some local foods too! Check out their menu! On Fridays, they have special pies of the day.

Open Face Turkey Sandwich | $17.50
in-house roasted turkey on white or wheat bread topped with gravy, served with mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes, and fresh cranberry sauce

Irish Dip | $15.00
thin sliced sirloin on baguette with horseradish mayonnaise, served with Guinness au jus

My dish. Was okay, exactly what you would expect out of the description lol

Asian Chicken Salad | $17.50
chicken breast, won bok, tomatoes, cucumber, peanuts, snap peas, tossed with a sweet Oriental dressing

This is one of the only salads my friend will eat. What do I think? Well it tastes like Chinese Chicken salad, I don’t know what else to say. I’m not going to hype this up for $17.50 lol.

Fried Spicy Chicken Wings (Half) | $12.00
serve with ranch dressing

These wings are good, but nothing special. Good drinking food.

Grilled Pork Chop
marinated with chipotle, honey, garlic, ginger and mae ploy sauce, served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables

Sorry, no price for this one. It was a weekly special so I can’t find it on the menu. I hope I got the description right, this dish was okay. Not great. Not satisfying.

Kalbi Special

No price again! Sorry, this is one of their specials. They do a good job with these kalbi ribs. Kalbi ribs in an Irish pub, who would have thunk it? They did. Tastes good!

Lemon Meringue Pie

I wasn’t a fan of this. Maybe it’s just me…I know meringue is made of raw egg whites but I didn’t realize how overwhelming the taste of the raw egg whites would be.

Banana Cream Pie

Apple Crisp Ala Mode | $7.00

Yum. I love me some apples and cinnamon with a nice crumble…and vanilla ice cream? This is the only time I don’t mind vanilla ice cream, when it’s mixed in with an apple pie-like dish!! Would recommend!
