Irish Bangers and Mash

As tradition with flickr meetups where there may be food and drink, we all took photos of my order at Rula Bula in Tempe, Arizona. This Irish restaurant is superb and not-to-be-missed on a trip to downtown Tempe if you enjoy "comfort food" done well. Oh yes, the previous photos also show a nice little drink selection we enjoyed (grin!). I bet the waitress does not often serve folks who are intent on the photographing before one bite is taken, ha ha! My special Christmas this year was the wonderful companionship of friends over the last few days. What a joy to share good times together. Thank you so much L and Thomas for a grand afternoon outing.


Rula Bula = "Taken from the Irish Gaelic language expression "rí rá agus ruaille buaille" it translates to "uproar and commotion" in the context of a celebratory and fun time. We phoneticized the expression into Rúla Búla to simplify pronunciation in English. We felt Rúla Búla was an appropriate selection for the upbeat, fun image the City of Tempe portrays." Taken from the restaurant website, see the webpage for more interesting information about the origins: "A true Irish pub is distinguished by its “craic,” an Irish term referring to positive interaction among people through conversation, stories and music.
