Restaurant Review – Bar Food at The Harbour Hotel, Galway
There were only few dishes which seemed like good choices. Most were bread based dishes. It was late afternoon when I visited so maybe there would be more choice at lunch time.
What I had (as described on the menu):
Goats cheese salad (baby leaves, grilled cherry tomatoes, goats cheese, tossed in cider & mustard house dressing)
Ease of figuring carbs: 1
(1 – 10, 1 being easy and 10 being hard to know how many carbs are in the dish)
- I wouldn’t the count carbs in this meal for insulin. I don’t count carbs in cheese and 10 cherry tomatoes have approx. 4.5g of carbs. There were less than 10 tomatoes in this dish, so too little to rate. Always follow the advice of your medical team. Some food plans may count carbs differently to me.
- This is a great choice if you are struggling with blood glucose levels because there is nothing in it to give any significant blood glucose rise. A great choice for anyone who wants a very light meal that will help to keep avoid type 2 diabetes.
Food rating (taste and presentation): 5/10
The dish was nicely presented, but the lettuce was awful; old, stalky and the dry end of the stalks hadn’t been removed.
Sometimes lettuce is only a small component in a dish, but for this dish the lettuce, feta cheese (which was lovely) and tomatoes are equally important, so it should have been perfect.
