Disney Recipe: Smokie City from Raglan Road Irish Pub and Restaurant PLUS New Signature Dinner Announcement!

Time to dig into another delicious dish at Raglan Road!

The authentic Irish pub, located at Downtown Disney in Orlando, is one of our favorite spots for its warm atmosphere and fantastic live entertainment. But the food is incredible too. Fans obviously agree that it’s the total package — the pub was awarded Best Restaurant honors by Orlando Magazine earlier this year.

And Chef Kevin Dundon has knocked it out of the park on this one. (Well, he does that quite often, but that’s beside the point.) I first had Smokie City — a chunky, hot, cheesy dip that features potatoes and the rich flavors of smoked fish — at the recent Signature Dinner that I attended at Raglan Road. Chef Kevin was on hand to present each course, and while they were all first rate, this one was my favorite. I loved it so much that I made it for a recent family dinner!

Serves 4

If you can’t find smoked haddock, go for an all-natural, firm smoked fish such as cod or coley. I also used Irish cheddar cheese.

Everyone’s favorite spot to get their green on will host not one, but TWO special dining events during their upcoming Mighty Festival!

The festival, which takes place from Friday, March 7, to Monday, March 17, will feature a stellar line-up of talented musicians and dancers, all celebrating the culture and arts of the Emerald Isle. Fan favorites The Willis Clan will be back again this year, and U2 tribute band Elevation will also be on hand for the party. The award-winning We Banjo 3 also joins the lineup! Creel, Raglan Road’s stellar house band, as well as others, will also appear. Two stages — one at Raglan Road and one at WestSide — will play home to the musical acts.

Guests can also learn the art of Irish dance during “From Roots to Riverdance” workshops, led by renowned Irish dancer and choreographer Ronan McCormack of the original Riverdance cast.

Other festivities at the family-friendly event will include face painting, stilt walkers, and children’s activities.

But we are most excited about the food, of course!

In addition to Loin of Bacon and Cabbage, the authentic Irish dish of St. Patrick’s Day, both Raglan Road and Cookes of Dublin, located adjacent to the pub, will be offering lots of traditional Irish fare on the brunch, lunch, dinner, and bar menus.
