ou'll find lots of international restaurants in Seattle worth talking about in —but none are from English-speaking countries. We have some recommendations for those, too.

If you're seeking a food and drink experience that evokes Ireland, look no further than Mulleady's Irish Pub, a Magnolia staple since 2001 and a far cry from the standard Irish-themed watering holes you find pretty much everywhere. Mulleady's serves Irish fare with a light Pacific Northwestern flair from a quaint two-story house that feels roomy but cozy, both floors featuring a giant gray stone fireplace and long wood bar. Go for brunch (served weekends from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and tuck into a traditional Irish breakfast (ham, bacon, and Irish knocker—sausage—with black pudding, a scone, roasted red potatoes, grilled tomato, baked beans, and fried eggs), or drop in for lunch and have a pot of pickles (mixed pickled vegetables) with an order of deviled scotch eggs. The real draw, however, is the alcohol: Mulleady's boasts the largest collection of Irish whiskeys on the West Coast (including hard-to-find imported offerings).

Kangaroo & Kiwi Pub serves Australian and New Zealand–themed eats from Ballard's old Carnegie Library building. Sports are usually playing on the assortment of TVs (with a strong focus on rugby, Australian rules football, cricket, and soccer), Aussie and Kiwi-themed decorations adorn the walls, a human-size effigy of Ned Kelly—the infamous Aussie bushranger—is propped up in a corner, and an Australian flag is tacked onto the ceiling directly above the bar. The menu is bar food that encompasses dishes like Aussie meat pies and sausage rolls, a big Kiwi burger (toppings include pineapple, beets, and a fried egg), and a vegemite and cheese toasty featuring the titular spread synonymous with the Down Under.
