Salty Dog Gastropub
Cruisers who love sitting down for a good pub meal, we’ve got good news for you! This week, Princess Cruises announced their newest on-board dining experience: the Salty Dog Gastropub.
Located in the Wheelhouse Bar on select ships (see end of article for more information), the Salty Dog is the result of a partnership with award-winning chef Ernesto Uchimura, of Umami Burger and Plan Check Kitchen + Bar fame. A cosy, old-fashioned pub-style atmosphere pervades the interior of the Salty Dog, but we can assure you that the menu is far from your usual steak ‘n chips affair!
For a small per-person cover charge, diners can choose three options from a deliciously creative range of Salty Dog Plates. Whatever your palate, there’s a gourmet small plate to suit everyone’s tastes: why not try the Pale Ale Pork Cheek with cauliflower polenta, roasted leeks and thyme-apple puree? Burger fans won’t be able to go past the Salty Dog’s signature burger, the ‘Ernesto’ – created exclusively for Princess Cruises, it boasts a rib-eye patty, grilled pork belly, gruyere, kimchi and beer-battered jalapenos. Seafood lovers, on the other hand, may want to indulge in a twist on an old favourite with the delicious Lobster Mac & Cheese! And don’t worry, non-meat-eaters, you haven’t been forgotten: five of the twelve Salty Dog Plates are vegetarian options.
No meal is complete without dessert, and the Salty Dog delivers on this front as well. After your small plates, you’ll want to save room for a Bourbon Chocolate Pot De Crème with salted caramel popcorn, or perhaps a Coffee & Doughnuts combo, which comes complete with espresso mousse and cinnamon and jelly doughnuts.
For those who like a drink with their meal (who doesn’t?), there’s a great range of international and craft beers available, as well as ciders, wines by the glass and some classic craft cocktails. The ‘Bloody Derby’ cocktail sounds particularly tempting with its interesting blend of Ubons Bloody Mary mix, Bulleit bourbon and a slice of bacon! The Salty Dog also features a special Whiskey Bar menu, featuring over 60 different international whiskies for your sipping pleasure.
The Salty Dog Gastropub is currently available on the Crown Princess and will be rolled out to the Dawn, Sea, Sun, Golden, Emerald and Ruby Princess ships this December. You can take a look at more of its mouth-watering offerings on the full pub menu or photo gallery below, but be warned: this may induce extreme hunger and food envy!
