Today, we’re pitting isle against isle to see who will arise triumphant in the Battle of the Bangers!
Now, of course I’m going to be completely neutral in this whole thing, but I will explore the differences between the two dishes 😉 Here we go:
Raglan Road’s version of the dish includes one banger on a bed of mash. Over top the whole thing, though, is a rich Irish beef stew, complete with huge chunks of tender veggies and beef. The dish is quite large — more than enough food for one person — but the contrast of flavors will keep you from getting bored halfway through. The addition of beef stew is Raglan Road’s secret weapon in the Battle of the Bangers.
Rose and Crown
“You don’t mess with a classic,” is the feeling I get when I order Rose and Crown’s version of the dish. Smaller in portion size than Raglan Road’s (admittedly more expensive) version, Rose and Crown delivers three bangers on a bed of extremely smooth mash. The onion gravy on top adds a distinct and traditional flavor to the dish. This punch of rich flavor you get from the bangers and the gravy are Rose and Crown’s best ammunition in the Battle of the Bangers.
