Best Place to Drink and Eat in the night
Pros; It was only a small bar with nice ambience, nice drinks (virgin mojito) and nice food also. Cons; the live band needs improvement

When as a foreigner living in Indonesia one is sometimes looking for a place where you can sit outside in a nice place, having good food, nursing cold beers, smoking cigarettes and enjoying the music. When I learned about Healy Mac it was for sure something to check out and this time we made it. It was a very quiet evening, apart from the 3 of us only a few other guests. Before going I checked TripAdvisor Reviews and the website so I came with a plan and expectations. The Location The location at ground level in the back of Centre Point was just perfect, we could park our car within 10 m. The outside sitting area was what I was looking for. The Beer I was prepared for pints of cold draught beer. A very pleasant surprise was that the beer came cold and in the jar at a very reasonable price. The Food Having checked the menu before coming the choice was easy, nr 1 the lamb stew and alternatively the rack of lamb. Surprisingly, these were not served. As the pork knuckle sounded promising it seemed to be a good plan. Now the pork knuckle came as a complete surprise. It did not look as any pork knuckle as I remembered from Ireland. As the staff informed it turned out to be pork knuckle Medan Style. For the real pork knuckle one has to order the original. This should have been made clear on the menu. It means that I have to come back to check the original, which in itself is not a bad plan. For my Indonesian guests I ordered the rib eye and large spare ribs, which I both made subject to my own quality control. The food came rather expensive, about the same as you will pay in an International Five Star Hotel. As quality wise the food was well up to expectations from this side no complains about the price. The Irish Music For me an Irish Pub is not an Irish Pub without Irish Music. It took a while to get it going and after that it was good and very serious. Throwing in some more bawdy drinking songs could be a good plan. In the end we lost in the Irish Music as some local guests, sipping their white coffee, preferred Indonesian music and songs. The Irish Whiskey One of the best things in an Irish Pub is getting happily drunk on good Irish Whiskey. It turned out to be that the Irish Whiskey is only served by the bottle. In itself a good plan as it minimizes the risk of being served watered down whiskey. One way or the other we qualified for a discount which, considering that the whiskey is being served and consumed in a pub, made the cost very reasonable. The good news is one does not have to finish the bottle at the spot, but any leftovers can be taken out. All in all a very pleasant evening well worth a 5 star rating.
