100 Favorite Dishes: No. 98, Morrissey's corned beef and boxty rolls
Benjamin Carter Grimes

Every culture has its flat-bread. In Ethiopia, injera is served with almost every meal; tortillas are all over the place; and Swedes have their infamous lefse. Earlier this year Morrissey's Irish Pub in Uptown introduced us to the Celts' answer to unleavened deliciousness: the boxty, or "poor house bread."

Morrissey's uses this potato-based pancake in one of their most popular appetizers. Spread with spicy, creamy horseradish and layered with their smoky house-brined lean corned beef, the boxty is then rolled up and cut into sections, a la another familiar picnic season favorite. Served standing up and decked out with a spoonful or two of cabbage slaw, each bite has a little bit of everything.

An order is $11, but it's plenty enough to share. Go during daily happy hour, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., when tap beers are a little cheaper.
