Kieron Go Braugh


Dallas has its share of Irish restaurants but you couldn’t experience the tastes of Ireland on the go until now. Kieron Go Braugh, Kieron-Go-Bragh--ChristineTraveling Irish Café is one of the latest additions to the North Texas Food Truck scene.  Operated by Christine Finnegan, a red headed Irish lass with a big smile, the friendly greeting paired with the simple but tasty food feels like you’ve been invited to dinner by a good neighbor.

Let’s dispel any misconceptions. The food is inspired by the tastes of Ireland but not necessarily presented in the traditional way. Take The Irishman, for example, a pair of Shepherd Pie Sliders that combines ground beef in gravy with peas & carrots and mashed potatoes between a sliced dinner roll.

Warning: There’s no way you can keep the generous portion between the bun. Get a fork!

You can’t think ‘Irish’ without thinking of Corned Beef & Cabbage. The Michael Finnegan presents this classic taste of Ireland as a sandwich.

Think slabs of Corned Beef; not slices!  And no Irish meal is complete without potatoes (Fries separate)

The Leprechaun is another Irish staple, the Banger, served up with kraut and a spicy Guinness mustard. Despite the reference to little people, there is nothing little about the size or the taste but it might just make you feel a wee bit mischievous. I restrained myself and settled for a wee little smile as I ate it.  You know, the one that makes people wonder what you’re thinking!

Kieron-Go-Bragh-Guiness-BratI showed a little restraint, too, by not ordering The Molly Malone (a grilled cheese) or The Reuben that were on the menu when I visited. It’s not that I needed to save something for a reason to go back. But if you need another reason to go, November is just around the corner and a hearty Guinness Stew will be added to the list of menu options.

Kieron-Go-Bragh-MenuAs you can see, restraint didn’t include stopping before everything was gone!  (Spoiler:  I had help!)

Kieron-GO-Bragh---I-ate-the-whole-thingFirst impressions suggest Keiron Go Braugh may have the competition seeing ‘green’ and regretting their failure to take Irish fare to the streets. If you’re looking for somewhere to spend a bit o’ your green, you can look them up on Facebook, Twitter or the schedule posted on the website.

There's no Guinness at #DeepElumBrewery where I caught up with Kieron Go Braugh but a Double Chocolate Stout paired up just fine.
