Celtic Corner

7/45 Cambridge Pde, Manly Qld

In the midst of so many styles of vegetarian food from different parts of the world, have you ever felt like eating something a bit more mainstream Anglo, or perhaps Celtic? This Corner has what you need! They do wonderful veggie burgers, in which the tasty patties come with bright and crunchy salad on Turkish or white bread. The burgers are enormous, and if your mouth doesn’t open wider than mine you’ll find one tricky to eat; you can use the knife and fork the management thoughtfully provide, or pull the sides apart and treat it as two open sandwiches. Either way, it’s a great burger. You can also order a dish of plump potato wedges that come with either aioli or a sweet chilli dip. If this is not enough, they pour a mean pint of Guinness that goes well with slightly oily food, and on the night we visited there was live Irish music! There’s a happy atmosphere at the Celtic Corner, which is thoroughly recommended to anyone who thinks of vegetarian food as something alien to the ethnic roots most of us have in the West.
