GO Different in Belfast

Alternative Eateries in Belfast

From America to South East Asia, whatever tickles your taste buds you’re sure to find a world of possible dining experiences in Belfast.

If you’re in the mood for something spicy, why not check out some of the best Mexican restaurants in the area...

Get your tex mex fill at La Salsa [map], University Road, where there’s plenty on offer for meat eaters and veggies alike. Try the jalapeno chillies for a starter, and if you live to tell the tale venture on to the extensive menu that consists of favourites like tortillas and variations on the chilli con carne theme.

But for an authentic taste, try Acapulco [map], Botanic Avenue, where the chefs know how to cook old Mexican favourites, as well as blended food for more nervous British palates. Chefs have been trained by Mexicans and the décor in the restaurant is all of Mexican origin. Get your chompers around some fiery Fajitas, burning Burritos and nicely spiced Nachos.

Exotic tastes are catered for at Café Laziz [map], Botanic Avenue, which is the first Moroccan restaurant in Belfast. With a wonderfully authentic décor eating here is a real joy, and although some dishes have been adapted to appeal to local tastes, there’s plenty of Moroccan recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. Particular specialities include Harira soup and deliciously succulent couscous. And if you’re lucky your meal will be served in a beautiful Tajine (clay) dish.

Head over to Country Antrim for a real taste of Japan at the Ginger Tree [map], Ballyrobert Road, Glengormly. This stunning restaurant offers diners the simplicity and elegance of Japanese cuisine combined with value for money and second-to-none service. Try a 'bento box' speciality, or be brave and go for the salted eels. You’re sure to give your taste buds an unforgettable adventure here.

Those with a taste for Chinese cuisine will find several excellent restaurants in and around the city centre.

One of Belfast’s busiest restaurants is Abacus [map] , Stranmillis Road, which also serves as a takeaway. If the nearby Chinese community choose to eat here so often, you know you’re onto a winner when it comes to authenticity. With more than 200 dishes on the menu, the choice is impressive. You can get all the usual beef, chicken, pork, king prawn, duck, chow mein, and egg foo yung dishes, along with some more unusual ones like broccoli and mapo sauce, Malaysian curry or aubergine and black bean sauce dishes.
