French Village Lisburn Road Brunch

Pork Belly & Polenta Cake | Weekend Brunch

French Village Lisburn Road Sunday brunches are great! It’s basically the go-ahead to unashamedly eat absolutely anything you fancy between the hours of 10am and 4pm. And a few weeks ago we headed to French Village Lisburn Road to do exactly that. This was my first in ages and in the classy surroundings of FV's … Continue reading Pork Belly & Polenta Cake | Weekend Brunch

Zizzi Belfast Title (1)

Zizzi

Zizzi Belfast, Victoria Square I was in Zizzi Belfast at the weekend for what was my third visit since it opened in late 2016. I'm really impressed by this restaurant. Each time it has delivered on service, price, and food. The menu has loads on it with plenty of classic and contemporary dishes, veggie & … Continue reading Zizzi

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

The crowds descend on Custom House Square to sample, enjoy and buy some mouthwatering breads, cakes, meats, cheeses, yogurts, craft … Continue reading Tesco Taste Festival 2016

Recipe | Chicken Enchiladas

So my next recipe is Chicken Enchiladas. Slightly scary this one. I was cooking for a group of 5 people which I’d never done before. Usually I’m a one pot wonder but here I had 2 on the go, the Acti-fryer and the oven. Some serious multi-tasking going on! For these I used Mexican cooking … Continue reading Recipe | Chicken Enchiladas

Ground Espresso Bar | Bangor

So Nic, the boys and I visited the Ground in Toscana Retail Park, Bangor earlier today. Now I've been to a few different Ground cacafes and I must say this has to be one of the best, especially for the kiddies. Friendly and very understanding staff plus a great wee 'playground' (nice) area to keep … Continue reading Ground Espresso Bar | Bangor
