Believe it or not, Orlando has authentic Irish pubs. A favorite appetizer consists of Georges Bank scallops (flown in fresh daily) coated in a light tempura batter and fried to tender, juicy perfection, then speared on forks and served in a special rack that holds them upright like seafood lollipops. There are sophisticated versions of traditional Irish entrées as well: pork loin stuffed with homemade sausage meat accented with honey soy glaze; apricot and almond banger (pork sausage with mashed potatoes, Shiitake mushrooms and apricot chutney); sirloin steaks and excellent Guinness-glazed ribs. The restaurant is enormous and located in the former carousel building at Pleasure Island. Just under the dome is a stage where Irish dance champion and former Riverdance performer Danielle Fitzpatrick kicks it to tunes from a Celtic/country band.
