Union Jack Restaurant
As everyone knows I love to try different restaurants and Union Jack was the place to go. It's located in Columbia and being familiar with the Columbia area I know they hve some very good restaurants.
Some of my friends were very familiar with Union Jacks and they all told me to try the Bangers and Marsh. Truly an English specialty. They raved about it and I figured with a name like Union Jack's, it must be delicious. Well, I am happy to report that their Bangers and Mash dish was excellent. Not only was the Bangars (English sausage) fresh and moist, seasoned perfectly but it was evident that the mash potatoes were made fresh with lumps of potato. Now, I am well aware that a lot of food manufacturers make mash potatoes but I know these marsh potatoes are the real deal.
The grilled onions were perfectly made along with the gravy that was light and tasty, not thick and heavy texture.
I reviewed the rest of the menu and although there was fish and chips shown, I noticed that instead of using cod, they use haddock. In my opinion, Union Jack is an English restaurant and they should serve their fish and chips with cod. It's worth it.
The rest of the menu had a variety of Maryland dishes and even Thai red curry over mussels. Interesting to say the least. While it was raining on the day we went, Union Jack's has an outdoor patio with a bar where you can sit and various tables all along the side of the restaurant.
The combination of great food, perfect atmosphere and professional service makes this restaurant to Mr. Woo a rating of "5", highly recommend this place. You won't be disappointed. Oh. on the scale of 1-5, 5 being excellent!
