Gerard Adomunes’s restaurant has been a major morning draw in Dorchester’s Adams Village for over 40 years. As befits its heavily Irish clientele, the signature breakfast dish here is a concoction called “Irish Breakfast Festival”: two eggs, two slices of Irish bacon, two Irish sausages, home fries, black pudding, and white pudding. A word about this “pudding” thing: black pudding is sausage, blackened with hog’s blood; white pudding is much the same, without the blood. Forget what’s in it and just eat it. It’s great.
