Today for lunch I was in the mood for something warm and soothing to my soul. I could have gone the soul food route, but I don't necessarily want anything crazy heavy. I don't like to have that sleepy feeling at work after lunch. It ruins the rest of the day for me. As I was walking to my car, I realized that Shepherds Pie sounded like it was the move. The only place in town that I know of that offers Shepherds Pie is Brass Door over on Madison. So that's exactly where I pointed my car.
Luckily I arrived early, because this particular day was also half price fish and chips day. I do love fish and chips, but I was on a mission. I had to have Shepherds Pie! I was also tempted by the fish of the day; blackened tilapia.
I held my ground and proudly put in my order for Shepherds Pie. The waiter gave me a look as if I should change my mind and go with one of the specials. Nope! The pie my guy!
Out, on a straight out of the oven cast iron skillet, came this thing of beauty. I nearly burned my hand trying to position this picture. This amazingly simple meal in composed of ground beef, carrots, peas, and gravy topped with mashed potatoes! It's like when you would mix all of your food into each other and eat it at one time. Maybe I'm the only one that does that.
You get a pretty big portion for $12. I would have to say it's a pretty reasonable price. I did contemplate getting those fish and chips for $5, but I really enjoyed the lunch and also a great conversation.
If you're looking for something, as my dad would say, that's going to stick to your bones and warm you up, try out the Shepherds Pie at The Brass Door. Let me know how you like it. Try it on Wednesday night as well. They have British Bingo that night. It's a highly addictive and frustrating version of Bingo.
