Irish Food

Hey! Don't know if this is the right place to post this but I was just wondering if anybody knew what Boxty was. My friend and I had some when we went to Ireland last summer and I was curious to know if it's possible to get some in New York City... or is it just an Irish specialty that u can't get anywhere else... like Red Lemonade! Oh, I miss Ireland!

If I remember right, it's bacon & cabbage fried together & then placed on a potato pancake that's folded over & served omelette-style.

ETA: This is what happens when you only read the first sentence of a post. I can see now that of course you know what the stuff is - you've eaten it before!!! What's the lesson here, kids? Read the entire post before you spout off with a reply & save yourself the embarrassment of looking like an eejit.

Boxty is just the spud/mashed spud/egg pancake thing. You could have a seafood boxty if you fancied it, or with apple sauce, or with an Ulster fry...

I would guess Irish restaurants/pubs in NYC would have them. There's one in Seattle that has them on the menu.

Well, I didn't know what it was and I'm sure I couldn't have been the only one.

Speaking of not knowing things, just what is red lemonade?

It's something fabulous


There isn't anything like it in NA that I can think of. It's a soda/pop, but I can't think of anything that might taste like it. I like Taylor Kieth red & white lemonades, and I love a Southy & Red

I have a bottle of Red in my fridge right now - It's flat as hell as I'm letting myself have it in small amounts to try and make it last

Do you know what orange Scottish soda type beverage it? I drank it once like 15 years ago and I think it lead to an out of body experience. My heart still hasn't slowed down.

There is a neighborhood in The Bronx called "Woodlawn" that is all Irish. Some recently come to the US, some that are 2nd or 3rd generation, but it's all Irish. There are a few Irish bakeries and restaurants in the neighborhood, and one of them will have what you're looking for.

Thanks! I think I'll check that out. I can always rely on getting my questions answered by you guys. Thanks much!

And yes, Red Lemonade is very yummy. It's too bad you can't find it anywhere else!
