The Iron Fairies - Pub and Restaurant on BumRes.com
Regarding our hunger for burgers, we didn’t take long to decide. My friend was quick with the menu; he took the manliest burger, the Fat Gut’s Beef Burger. I had to pick a different one. So, I went with the less masculine, the Coli’s Tropical Burger. The pineapple in a burger, a tropical remark was a bit feminine. It was my first time but I enjoyed it very much. The fried egg fitted in with the fruit and the juicy beef patty to my surprise. First bite recalled a hearty breakfast on as island. The buns must have been made here. The buns were brittle yet filling, did their job covering the oversized patty and all other goodies with kindness. Honestly, toward the end of the dream, I couldn’t hang on to my whole burger, the goodies fell off. I couldn’t blame on the Absinthe, could I? My buddy’s manly burger came with the bacon strips and onions. He didn’t talk too much once he had his hands on the Grande manhood (Fat Gut Burger). There is no word that could describe better than a genuine act. Our burger cravings were taken care of. We couldn’t agree any less with the judgment by CNNGO except to find out where the best burger in town is at.
Tuna Avocado Salad was nothing special. This dish could be seen in typical restaurant. Fried wedges of potatoes were tasty and interesting compared to the usual French fries. I have always liked this type of fries because they have a real sense of potatoes, unlike the fries you find in fast food chained restaurants. By the way, these wedges were a great compliment of the burgers. We were big eaters, so after we had all the mentioned above we still had room in our stomach. The next one was the Beer battered prawns. The golden batter was really crispy and the prawns were big and fresh. We got so many of them for the reasonable price (190 Baht). It was like joke that they served these high class prawns with the Thai sweet chili sauce (meant for fried chicken). I wish they could come up with a more pleasing and unique sauce. I suggest a Spicy Tequila, Bloody Mary cocktail sauce with a hint of mustard. Our last dish on the table was the Old Man Sam’s Shepard’s Pie. This was a sautéed ground meat with tomatoes and veggies that had a mix of cheese and shredded potatoes to cover on top, baked to brown. At first we thought it was very similar to a Lasagna but then I kept thinking . And I remembered a time with my American friend’s family; they had cooked something like this for me. They called it meat and potatoes casseroles. So, this one brought back my memories of a traditional American meal. Although the taste was so intense that last bites were kind of salty. Overall, the sides were good. We were really satisfied with all the food.
The one of kind experience at the Iron Fairies will be memorable. The dark and mysterious atmosphere could be disturbing to some people but not for me. I even thought that darkness limited my visual but enhanced my other senses, like the taste buds. This place could get packed later in the night since they have so many attractive cocktails and the wine list. I really believe that this place would be quite lively and spiritual with the crowd. There are no reservation privileges; you will have to come earlier or wait in queue. Here they limit the capacity at 55 heads. I recommend the Iron Fairies to everyone who likes eating their burger in the dark – LOL…
