Cosmo very cosmopolitan

The BFM wants to share his food love of Cosmo,Victoria Square,Belfast. I have said before am not a big fan of buffet,but this is the quintessential best buffet chain.

I was joined for Sunday lunch by my two sisters. I booked online on Friday for noon,and let me recommend you book in plenty of time, as when we left at two the restaurant was packed and there were queues forming to get in.

The range was amazing,from dim sum to sushi,from salads to Indian and Chinese starters of all types, including chicken tikka,seek kebab, duck pancakes,prawn toast,crackers and a myriad of others.

The main courses were from Italy (pizza and pasta), traditional roast dinner,live cooking stations exhibiting Teppanyaki (I had the scallop and prawns) and grilled meats (I had chicken and ribs). There was also live noodle station and real Tandoori oven cooking Tandoori chicken and naan.

There was a great selection of curries/meat in sauce dishes. From the Indian kitchen there was chicken tikka masala, chicken korma, dun lamb curry,chick pea curry,potatoes and rice.

Then Japanese,Thai,Chinese,Korean too many to mention,you just have to go.

Just when you think you cannot eat any more there’s the sweet section, say no more. Extremely highly recommended,so get down to Cosmo.

Panto Aladdin at the GOH

Tonight the BFM and family went to the Grand Opera House for our annual panto trip.

2 Great Victoria Street
Belfast
BT2
Northern Ireland
http://www.goh.co.uk
028 9024 1919

It was a great show with sterling performances from Faye Tozer, Jimmy Tamley and our very own May McFetteridge.

There were a few empty seats either due to Christmas shopping or the price of tickets, which personally I feel are a bit high. The performance clock outside said show would be over at 9.30pm, it finished at 9.10pm.

So couple of points got the GOH to take on board, otherwise a fantastic show in an amazing venue!!

The restaurant in the Baby Grand has some lovely dishes,so will have to check it out!!

Curry Sauce NI @ the markets

The BFM loves Curry Sauce NI for the past 8 or more years at different markets but more so St George’s and the Continental/ Christmas markets.

The concept is simple. There are 10 different sauces which will easily feed at least 3 people possibly 4. I have used all 10 sauces and they are good. They range from mild to medium to hot and are mainly Indian with some Thai.

You can use any kind of meat or vegetables and you can thin them down with water or coconut cream.

They sell for £4 per tub or 3 for £10. The best thing is you can try b4 u buy!!! There’s a range in order of heat in which you can dunk pieces of crackers.

Big Pan Cuisine

Hi the BFM checked out the Big Pan Cuisine who were serving German and French cuisine cooked in large wide shallowish pans. Their location is gr8 and they have been doing this for 8 years.

I was lucky to taste all 3 dishes, the two French dishes being chicken Provençal, the champignons (mushrooms in a creamy sauce) and the
German dish of potato,bacon and onion, Brattlartoffeln. All dishes cooked in beg oil.

Try the platter,that’s a proper meal!!

Nice cuppa coffee in nice surroundings

The BFM was in town and a bit cold and thirsty so decided to pop into Jury’s Inn for a cup of coffee.

6-26 Gt Victoria Street
Belfast
BT2 7AP
United Kingdom
http://belfasthotels.jurysinns.com/
+44 28 9053 3500

The lobby area is big and spacious with reception opposite the entrance.
There was a comfy sofa area to the left and a booking only restaurant, residents have their breakfast there, otherwise you need to book.

I had my coffee in the bar to the right of the entrance. It was freshly made and nice and hot. They also serve meals there. A great place for business or leisure traveller.Centrally located and used to be the Canon cinema many moons ago- I remember going there!!
