Food writer Dianne Curtin wrote that some sort of war would start if this staple dish was removed from our menu. How right she was!. Our fish soup has featured on the lunch menu since Thecla first started serving lunch here in the 80’s.
Unlike traditional Irish chowder, we base ours on a Mediterranean recipe beginning with a tomato base, brandy and lots of cream. Chunks of fresh fish fill up the bowl and this is served with a slice of our home made brown soda bread which is baked daily on the premises.
