Eat Street at Belfast Restaurant Week

The BFM and littlest lady sampled the delights of Eat Street. This is all taking place in Hill street. Talking to the street traders they were saying it’s been busy and expect more this evening, especially as it’s a Friday and the weather is good.

The first vendor was Jolly Pies, who had a range of locally sourced and produced pies, such as goat,beef and pheasant and served with/without mash and gravy for a reasonable £4.

Next was cafe Livanto which served fresh tea,coffee and hot chocolate.

Next was Tricycle Trading. This is a novel idea, your food and transport and it’s all pedal power. They were serving pulled pork and brisket.

The Yardbird had a wee stand selling Chicken burgers using there specially marinated chicken and Brazilian
rotisserie for £5. Very handy location for them as they were opposite the main Yardbird. Looked and smelt delicious.

Mourne Seafood Cookery school had their van and I met a friend who said he had the fish n chips and was delicious.

Broughgammon farm was next and we had the billy goat burger. All meat is reared on their farm and all relishes made at home. The goat burger was assembled thus: on a toasted fresh Bap, a layer of pickled beet root was spread then on other bread was mint tzatziki then grated cheese onto which the burger went.Then on top of beet root was lettuce then pickled carrot (to mimic gherkin), then it was all put together. Me and my daughter loved every bite and recommend Broughgammon produce, gr8 for £4.

Next was the Fabulous Food Factory. These guys do genuine Virginian BBQ courtesy of their American chef to provide hog roasts and proper American BBQ.

Gourmet Street Dogs was next and the menu looked gr8, unfortunately all the sausages are beef so I couldn’t eat it, but it’s a fab stand.

Up next was Linen Hill, who were serving pulled pork and pork dogs. Would have liked to try it,maybe another day.

Last but not least was Harnetts Oil. I have to stand corrected, in a previous blog I said they started in 2008, it was actually 2007!!!!

So there you have it take your pick, get down now,it closes at 11pm tonight. There was also some entertainment.

Once again the BFM shares the food love!!! Ciao for now

Is this the best Indian Restaurant in the Belfast area?

The BFM had heard that the Tale of Spice was the no 2 out of 609 restaurants in Belfast (Tripadvisor) so decided to pay a visit.

Unit 2B Eastpoint Entertainment Village
1 Old Dundonald Road,Dundonald
Belfast
BT16 1XT

I have to say that it looked very good decor wise and so it should be as it’s been open since August this year. The joint owners are Indian, front of House is Sunil and chef in kitchen being the other owner. Both have worked in Indian Ocean restaurants and have vast experience. Also the two waiters are Indians,so this is a genuine Indian Restaurant and not Pakistani or Bangladeshi, so food is 100% genuine Indian.

I went for the lunch special which is 2 courses for £7.95. I chose the mixed vegetable and mince lamb samosas (2 pc) served with salad and a lovely red sweet and sour sauce.

For main course I had the chicken jalfrezi and nan. I must admit it was the best Jalfrezi I have had and the nan was fluffy and accompanied the jalfrezi very well. The Jalfrezi was just hot (chilli) enough and there was ample sauce,along with mushrooms, green peppers and onion,just like a Jalfrezi should be.

Chef made me fresh cardamom infused rice pudding topped with chopped almonds. Delicious way to finish the meal.

It is a new restaurant and in my opinion one of the best authentic Indian restaurants in the greater Belfast area. I would thoroughly recommend it,especially to take advantage of their lunch time specials.
It’s a great place to lunch in for any offices nearby or even Dundonald hospital.

There is ample car parking there, also cinema and a kids play area all in the complex. They do have a kids menu, so why not make a day or night of it!!!
