Hey guys! Last night for my friend's birthday we decided to hit up Fado Irish Pub in Buckhead for dinner and drinks. Having never been there before, I decided to snap a few pictures to share with you. A through and through Irish pub (the restaurant was literally built in Ireland and shipped over here), they have been providing Atlanta residents with authentic Irish pub fare for years.
We started off with some of their Topped Chips. They had plenty of toppings to choose from, including black pudding and chimichurri, Harp Lager cheese sauce and bacon, pulled lamb and peppercorn sauce, and chicken curry. We went with the fresh rosemary and parmesan tossed topping, which was really good.
For my main I went with the oven roasted turkey flat bread sandwich served with their soup of the day, which was parsnip soup. I believe they serve this sandwich in the summer only because it was in the specials section, so hurry and go get it while you can! It was seriously the best turkey sandwich I've had ... ever I think! Stuffed with hand-carved turkey, fruit chutney, arugula, ripe avocado & bacon, it was delicious.

The parsnip soup was delicious as well, it was very flavorful and hearty, not at all what I had expected. I don't even know what a parsnip looks like actually, so I'm not sure what I was expecting... maybe something super watery? This was not like that at all though, it was super rich and bursting with flavor. It reminded me of curry lentil soup that I've had in Indian restaurants before.
Alex was boring and got the Reuben, how original right? It's actually their twist on a Reuben, because instead of sauerkraut they have coleslaw. It also has tender corned beef, Swiss cheese, Marie Rose sauce, and is served on a grilled marble rye. Alex considers himself a Reuben connoisseur (he always orders them when we go to Irish restaurants) so he was a little disappointed that there was no sauerkraut. Other than that he thought it was delicious! For his side he got pickled garden beets and carrots, which were pretty good.
All right that's it for this little post, hope I made you sufficiently hungry! If you want to check them out they are located at 273 Buckhead Ave. You can also visit there website here.
