After a long busy week at work, sometimes you just need a full table of comfort food! From Mac + Cheese Balls to a barrel (or what seems like a barrel) full of nachos, Regina has so many delicious restaurants to visit for pub grub. Grab a napkin for the drool (trust me, you’re gonna need it) and let’s get to a few of Regina’s best pub grub restaurants!
If there’s one thing I’m an expert in, its nachos, and I can tell you that my hands down favourite place for nachos in the city is Canadian Brewhouse. The full order of nachos comes in what seems like the top of a barrel. Yes, you’ll want to share these with a friend or two!
To find the best pub grub in the city, I had a lot of taste testing to do at local pubs. I needed an assistant (or 4) to help me out and my boyfriend was a willing participant. His three teenage sons also came to assist when they could, but sometimes it was just the two of us with a big table of food. When we visited Knotted Thistle, I couldn’t decide on just two things, so we tried four. We had so much food that we needed to move to a bigger table! My recommendation here is the Duck Spring Rolls but the Irish Nachos were a close second. Oh, and the Saskatoon berry compote I could’ve ordered in a big mason jar to take home. So good!
I love the classic pub grub foods like nachos, onion rings and jalapeno poppers but trying new, creative appetizers are always fun! At Birmingham’s, there are lots of creative menu items to try like Stuffed Yorkies, Ukraine Trains, Lobster Corn Fritters, and my personal favourite – Mac + Cheese Balls.
At this pub, there is a restaurant side and a pub side, so we were able to bring the three teen boys with us for this feast. It’s a good thing too because there was so much for us to try! My favourite here was the Meaty Cheese Bread but the guys all seemed to like the Crazy Fry Basket and Twisters Bucket. I’ve already decided what I’m trying next time – Margherita Dip!
I’ve been here a few times for lunch but this was the first (but not the last) time I visited just for appetizers. I had two favourites here: Falafel Plate and Philly Egg Rolls. There’s a big Taco Plank on their menu that caught my eye – now I know where I’ll be for Cinco de Mayo!
