O'Reilly's Irish Pub, St. John's, NL

Gord and I spent some time walking around St. John's.  We had to leave downtown about 3pm to head to the airport to catch our flight to St. Pierre.

We walked up George Street and had lunch at O'Reilly's.

 It's such a nice day so we sat on the patio.

I wasn't too too hungry so ordered medium wings.  They were good.  There was a light batter and the sauce was tasty.  They were fairly big and there was a good number in the order.  I'd order them again.  My only complaint is that they were warm, not hot ... probably waiting around for Gord's meal.

Gord, being more adventurous, ordered Fish n' Brewis.  It's something that his Newfie grandmother used to make but he wouldn't try as a kid.  He enjoyed it and said he'd order it again.  Scrunchions, btw, are deep fried pork fat.

It was pleasant to pass some time on the patio before we had to scamper to the airport to catch our flight to St. Pierre.

My Mom used to make "fish n brewis", only she called it "Cod fish and Crunchins". I loved it and haven't had it in years.
