Happy St. Pat’s from Raglan Road at Downtown Disney

We’re dancing the Irish jig at Raglan Road at Downtown Disney for St. Patrick’s Day, but if you can’t join us, here’s a hearty dish that will have you dancing a jig in your own kitchen. It’s called Smokie City because it’s made with smoked haddock, but oh, so much more…cream, Dubliner cheese, white wine and butter create a divine base for this dip in a bowl. Serve it with some crunchy bread. Sláinte!

Smokie City

Serves 2

4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup white onion
1 cup smoked haddock, 1/2-inch dice
1 potato, boiled, chilled and diced in 1/2-inch pieces
1 Roma tomato, 1/2-inch dice
4 tablespoons white wine
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup Dubliner cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons chopped parsley

  1. Pre-heat oven to broil. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter. Add onion, haddock, potatoes, tomatoes and wine. Slowly add cream and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and stir in cheese and parsley. Once the cheese has melted and cream thickens, pour into an ovenproof bowl and broil until top starts to brown.
  3. Remove from oven and cool for about a minute. Serve with toasted bread.


  • Curious as to what the broiler or flamethrower adds at the end? Is it absolutely needed, or just a nice touch. Thanks for the chow and tell.

    • The crisp finish under the broiler is a nice finish that mostly adds eye appeal.

  • Seriously one of the best places to eat in WDW. The food is outstanding and the atmosphere is terrific. Slainte!

  • Wow! St. Patrick’s Day will be very magical at Disney. Everything will be green! Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!

  • One of my favorite places to eat at the Disney World resort! Food & service are both excellent!

  • Wow, that looks divine! Thanks for the recipe.

  • One of my favorite appetizers! We will have a few of these tonight at Raglin Road! We are on our way right now (3:30 pm). We want to get some good seats.

  • Wish I could be there! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
