26/09/2021: Saturday night . . . where do you go in Carlow? well there's one place I could strongly recommend its Lennons@VISUAL, I have to admit that it was booked for me buy a local as I'de have never found it.A restaurant beside / in the same building as the Visual arts theatre, in the heart o Carlow. Menu is limited but excellent, we had KFC wings and NO test not what you think, KFC – Korean Chicken Wings,Soy, sesame, spring onion, chilli, carrot & coriander salad and delicious, and I had a crab cake, I'd have to say the crab cakes were a little bland but the wings were superb, on to the mains, I had Tempura of Haddock,Masala aioli, minted peas, fennel, watercress, curry oil, double cooked chip, a posh name for Fish and Chips the batter was to die for excellent choice, and the other main was Fillet of Cod Pan-fried, red pepper basquaise, chorizo & mussel vinaigrette, saffron mousseline (gf) superb again, service with string green beans and a boiled potato, we had a bottle of UBY, Cotes De Gascount at just under €30 which was a little steep but nice wine, and one desert . . . well we won't say too much about the desert as it was not as good as the rest of the food, all in all it worked out including a tip €50 a head . . . good value for the quality of food . . . I am back next Saturday to try something different I would recommend its a nice trendy place.
