The cosy atmosphere at Mooney's belies its 5-star location in the Shangri-La hotel, but the food quality really gives it away. MORE was invited to sample a few of their featured menu items recently. One standout offering was the rib eye steak. This kitchen understands that good steak is about getting the best meat you can get (the beef is imported from Australia) and not messing with it too much. We were pretty pleased to see a good steak not ruined by overcooking. We've also paid the same price for steak about one-third the size. The barbecue ribs came tender and slathered in sauce, served up in a caveman- sized portion. Mooney's claims to have the best ribs in Chengdu and we have not run into any contenders yet. One dish that is unique in town is their Mega-Burger, big as a pizza and served sliced into wedges. It would feed six hungry people easily and is a bargain at 150RMB.

Other pub food standards round out the menu. We enjoyed the chicken mushroom pie, which was presented in a cast iron pan with a big cap of puff pastry. The fish and chips, cod in a not-too-thick batter, comes wrapped in a newspaper with tartar sauce on the side. We are fans of the thick, seasoned signature fries at Mooney's. The Caesar Salad, topped with grilled chicken, would suit lighter appetites.

We are glad to see the band Solidaz is back on the Mooney's stage every Tuesday to Saturday, drawing a crowd especially on the regular Thursday Ladies' nights. On Sundays and Mondays, jazz singer Amandah Jentzen performs. November events at Mooney's include their Singles’ Night, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
