Well the BFM had a meeting in Billy Andy’s, a licensed spirit grocer, in the countryside of Antrim.
66 Browndod Road

The Spirit Grocer,brings me back to time gone by!! This is a lovely countryside pub,meeting place and restaurant in a real authentic old Irish place,just like olden days.
I was greeted very warmly and given menu and ordered my usual water,which came promptly with ice and lemon. For my food I ordered the Rare Breed Pork platter and apple. This had five different types of pork- loin, hock, bacon, crackling and black pudding served on a rectangular white plate and then the place mat was a black slate, so impressive. I have wanted to try Billy Andy’s since February as I was told it served great Irish food. So you cannot get more Irish than five types of pork especially black pudding, cabbage and of course spuds. The mash was mustard mash and creamy and fulfilling. The whole dish was well constructed and presented and was well worth the 25 minute wait,another indication of food cooked fresh and to perfection.
In short this was the best plate I have eaten all year. I’m looking forward to sampling more. This is a gem off the beaten track and Must be tried.
Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao down now!!!
