Bewitching with an Irish brunch

It was nice to see another Irish place open up because there are not many Irish restaurants in Hong Kong.

O'Phillie's Irish restaurant & pub is now a new competitor for Delaney's.

So far, I have only tried their lunch and brunch so I can't compare their roast yet.
The decor of this place is green and Celtic just what you would expect for the Irish culture.

The brunch menu was quite good, for the Full Irish breakfast, there was a half portion option.
I wonder if you would get half a black pudding in the half portion.


Here was what I ordered:

Smoked salmon scramble:


There was no apricot jam given as stated on the menu.
The scrambled egg was quite nice but the salmon could have been fresher because it tasted a bit fishy.
The Dublin hash was just an ordinary hash brown.
★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★
Bewitching "Full" Irish breakfast:
I loved the name "Bewitching" for a breakfast because it sounded enchanting.
The full breakfast had: two pork sausages, two pieces of Irish smoked maple bacon, award winning black pudding, grilled tomato, baked beans, eggs, Dublin hash brown and toast with apricot jam.

When it arrived, there was no apricot jam or black pudding so I informed the waitor.


The Dublin hash was a bit disappointing because it was just the usual hash browns and they were quite oily.

Black pudding:


The missing black pudding was served when I nearly finished the breakfast.
It was different to the ones I have had before which come in slices and the black pudding skin was very tough to slice.
