It’s that time of year when you can’t help yourself from choosing the limited Christmas dishes off the menu wherever you go and Galvin HOP‘s Turkey Deluxe Dog will not disappoint. Yes that’s correct you haven’t misread; a turkey Christmas inspired hotdog!
The turkey hotdog is wrapped in bacon, topped with a crumbled and crispy stuffing, and complete with homemade cranberry sauce hidden away under the sausage. This giant pigs in blanket was moist and seasoned perfectly but my favourite element has to be the stuffing topping. With a texture and crunch like crispy fried onions but packed full of onion and sage flavour it finished the Christmas dog off to a tee. Homemade cranberry sauce hidden under the sausage delighted the taste buds with ever bite and gave a sweet kick you forget is coming because you can’t see it. The Turkey Deluxe is served in a brioche Bun and comes with fries and a watercress salad.
The vibe in this gastro pub is chilled yet bustling and the perfect setting to while away the afternoon in a booth enjoying great comfort food and craft bottled beer. Despite it being a Tuesday lunch time the restaurant was packed which meant service was a little slow, but if you’re not in a rush and can kick back to enjoy the atmosphere then why not.
