Foodies Fill the Food Hall

Well they certainly didn’t do anything like this back in my day at school! In our canteen you walked in to see big Aggie standing there in a tunic you could’ve used for a ten man tent, ladle in hand, face like thunder, looking at you like she would slap the living daylights out of … Continue reading Foodies Fill the Food Hall

Summer Slushie at Ground Espresso Bar

The sun was out in Belfast today so I called into Ground to try one of their iced drinks they've brought in for the Summer. This one is a peach & summer berries flavour slushie, blitzed in the blender with ice and topped with a handful of little fruity millions chews. Refreshingly sweet and great … Continue reading Summer Slushie at Ground Espresso Bar

Hot Igloo

Working in Belfast city centre coupled with living not too far from it means that most of my eating out is done in the middle of town. So it was a nice change to be asked by 1vision PR (thanks folks) to try out a still very brand new restaurant up in Glengormley. Another plus … Continue reading Hot Igloo

Belfast has very recently settled itself into the very trendy position of being divided into “Quarters”.

So there’s the Titanic, Cathedral, Linen, Gaeltacht and Queens (or University) Quarters plus the City … Continue reading Coffee by Quarters

Solo Kitchen & Bar

Right so I promise the title of this post will be my first and final ‘solo’ pun.

Glass House Coffee and Flapjack

Glasshouse Coffee Lisburn

Now i always get a little nervous when I write about a place in Lisburn. I've read more than few snippets of criticism of the City since starting this blog.

A Taste of Taylor & Clay at Bullitt Hotel
