Jenna of JennasWorldView and I ate our way through Belfast city on our recent corona-cation.
What I would say is that the foodie scene in Belfast feels local and homegrown. When researching for places to eat I noticed that there weren’t popular chains like Gaucho, Nobu, or STK which led me to look through TripAdvisor and blogs for local eats.
Here is a definitive list of where we ate:
The cocktail Menu, or should I say book is phenomenal! I spent ages deciding on what cocktail I wanted versus the food menu which is very unlike me.
AMPM is a bohemian themed restaurant and the decor is everything your Instagram feed is waiting for. If you’re down to share, the menu has tapas style sharing small plates for you to try at £5.40 each or five plates for £22.50. As I live in the overpriced scam that is London, I found this to be quite affordable. The cocktails range from £8 to £15 depending on what they are.
Overall, if in town again, I would definitely come back.
Favourite cocktail: Bohemian Blossom
Granny Annie’s Kitchen
This place feels like home.
Granny Annie’s has a varied menu I would say similar to the TGI’s chain. Best of all is the cocktail menu where you’ll find 2 cocktails for £10 because it’s 5pm somewhere.
Favourite cocktail: Granny’s Woo Woo
The Wolff Grill at The Titanic Hotel:
Fresh fish and chips and a great drinks menu.
We were staying at The Titanic Hotel so it was only right we sampled some of the food! The staff were very attentive and the food was delicious. This would complete a nautical themed day after a trip to the Titanic Museum.
The Dirty Onion and Yardbird
No cutlery necessary! The coleslaw is some of the best I’ve ever tried.
I’m not sure if Belfast’s Yardbird is affiliated with the chain of the same in Las Vegas but like the name they specialise in chicken. I would call myself a wing fiend and Belfast’s YardBird lived up to my expectations. What I really loved was the sides – avocado salad, coleslaw and the fries. Wash this down with a local beer before heading home.
Favourite dish: The wings. There is enough for 3 or 4 people.
2Taps Wine Bar
A taste of Spain in Belfast.
We stumbled into 2Taps Wine bar in search of dessert and we weren’t disappointed. We had the churros, creme brûlée and Guinness brownie because when in ‘Rome’… or Belfast.
I’d love to come back and drink my way through the wine menu though!
Favourite dessert: The churros *chef’s kiss*
Whilst the world of travel is a mess at the moment, it doesn’t mean you can’t do research for future trips. Start the Pinterest board, open the group chat, make some fully refundable bookings and get excited. The world will be open soon and it’s waiting for us.
