Reporter Food: Boxty at Blackthorn Pub

Reporter Food: Boxty at Blackthorn Pub

(Crystal A. Proxmire, July 7, 2018)

Holly, MI- In addition to a regular menu of delicious items, Blackthorn Pub in Downtown Holly offers specials that regularly change.  I recently had Boxty, which was an Irish potato pancake stuffed with a mix of roasted mushrooms, kale, and whiskey cream sauce topped with an Arzak egg and served with herb sour cream.

This was absolutely wonderful and delicious.  Arzak eggs are poached in a special way that leaves the outside firm and the middle runny. The mushrooms and the kale made for some good healthy eating, though I did follow it up with some house-made shortbread topped with strawberries and whipped cream. But hey, strawberries are fruit at least.

Blackthorn Pub is located at 105 S. Saginaw Street in Downtown Holly. Check them out online at
