There’s always a reason for celebrations and we just love to find one. Blessed with happening festivals all year long, Guinness has been a great companion during Arthur’s Day. And now, it’s time to shout out ‘Merry Goes Round in March’!
Yes, their theme for the festival, we’ll be ready to party with the spirit of St. Patrick’s Festival with feast thanks to the GUINNESS® promotions starting from 1st March 2011 to 31st March 2011. St. Patrick’s Festival has been internationally celebrated on 17 March. Named after Saint Patrick, it became an official feast day & a month long celebration with good food and not forgetting teaming ’em up with pints of Guinness.
Thanks to the invitation from Fitou Brasserie, enjoying the Guinness Feast in an eatery well-known for their Mediterranean cuisine from France, Italy and Spain was spectacular.
In conjunction with this festival, Fitou is offering their St. Patrick’s Festival Menu. (Exclusively available from 1st March – 31st March 2011)
Pricing: Ala Carte @ RM34++
Irish Set with a perfect pint of Guinness @ RM48 nett
These are the 3 seasonal dishes available for the month of March.
Irish Beef Stew with Guinness served with Carrots & Potatoes
Soft beef stew infused with world’s favourite black brew of Guinness. Flavoursome gravy was perfect for bread dipping too.
Sauteed Guinness Beef Chunks with French Beans & Carrot Sticks
Tender medium beef cutlet was juicy and garnishing them with aromatic deep fried leeks was a clever idea.
Pork Wellington stuffed with Apricots, served with Potatoes & Guinness Cream Sauce
Pastry was crispy, fillings with a tasty mixture of sweetness from apricots, pork fillings & buttery hints of potatoes. Drenching it with the Guinness infused creamy sauce was very memorable. Definitely pleased us a lot.
For desserts lovers, check out their Crème Brulee & Molten Chocolate! (not included in the set)

The food looks so good – the gravy is so rich and brown, yum! Delicious!
Thank you for taking time off to try my specially prepared dishes in conjunction with St. Patrick's Day.
Firstly, the Pork Wellington. I am very pleased you loved the dish and its Guinness infused cream sauce. The balance between the pork and apricots are a classic combination. The tenderness of the pork and the sweetness from the apricots are just bursting in flavours.
Secondly, the Guinness Sauteed Beef. Yes, it is intended to 'look' a simple dish, but however, once you bite into the beef, you will find it tender and perfectly braised in Guinness, herbs and cooking liquids.
As for the stew, I would say it is down to an individual's personal taste. I thought it was tender enough and at the same time, hold its chunkiness. It does not break easily into smaller bits, which is my intention when preparing this stew.
Well, the promotion ends 31st March. So hope to you see again to have these three dishes.
