Wilde Rover Kirkland Roast Beef Dip Expert Review 2/21/18

Context/Setting the Stage

I was out to lunch with some coworkers (including some I'd never met before) and we found ourselves at the Wilde Rover, a nice Irish place in downtown Kirkland.  It's a big facility and quite fun with delicious food.  They used to have a Turkey dip, I believe, that I reviewed, and they'd updated their menu to include what turned out to be a really good (great!!) French dip.  Woo hoo.  I got to surprise and amaze my coworkers with my "art" that is my French dip reviewing and also enjoy a delicious sandwich and meal of food.  Enjoy!

Raw Tasting Notes

Some chewy beef but I love it
Happy I had the aioli on the side, good herbs
Overall really chewy but great 5 all around

Chewy dark heavily Toasted bread
Dark, rich very flavorful, herby jus a bit luke
Great bread, grill marks
