i miss the seafood chowder

I was thinking about McKibbin's the other day, maybe because we were discussing St. Patrick's Day recently. It's pretty naff (as you can tell from the site) and the menu has stuff like "Belfast chicken wings" (yeah wings are big in Belfast, I'm sure) but it was one of my favourite pubs when I lived in Montreal. It was a Discreet haunt, and I had my bon voyage lunch there. UK people can get a good laugh from the beer menu (hey, we didn't know that Harp is the cheapest, crappiest beer you could possibly get in the UK and Ireland), but it was a damn fine place to meet up with a bunch of people and eat some decent food.
