I was so crushed that I didn’t get to do the fun St. Patty’s day things I wanted to do, but as luck would have it, The Grad Lounge totally came through for me on Thursday with an Irish-inspired menu!! Oh gosh, I was so ecstatic! Think lamb stew, corn beef, and what I ordered: potato and cabbage soup! So I did end up having something Irish that day it made me real happy. I’m a big fan of The Grad Lounge’s soup (and the corn muffins!) and the selection changes on a daily basis. Thus far, I’ve had the hungarian mushroom, spring vegetable, butternut squash, and the lentil, and although I love them all, the hungarian mushroom is definitely my most favourite, with the lentil one coming in at 2nd place.
A regular bowl of soup is $3.50 and is served with your choice of white or whole wheat bread roll, or corn muffin, and a large soup is available to-go for $4.25. This one had soft chunks of potato and crunchy shredded cabbage, and those black flecks you see are just some black pepper I sprinkled on because I love black pepper on everything, ha. So this is me really happy that I got the chance to eat something Irish on St. Patty’s, yay! 😀
The Grad Lounge is located at 166 South Ross at the York University Keele campus. They offer a number of daily specials in addition to their permanent menu, and provide numerous vegetarian and vegan options.
