When a cafe in Belfast city centre started selling crisp sandwiches, people bought them like they were going out of fashion.
Then sadly they did go out of fashion, the cafe closed and we’ve been left searching for another crazy food combo to fill the void.
If you want to push the boat out that extra mile into the ocean of weird and wonderful food mash-ups then here are four ways to take your tastebuds on a rollercoaster ride in the city of Belfast…
1. Curried burrito
Burritos are a long established item on Belfast menus, but have you ever considered a curried one instead of the traditional Mexican recipe? Kurrito sell some of the best and cheapest Indian delicacies you’ll find in the city, all trussed up like a little baby in swaddling tortilla.
2. Squid and BLT sandwich
While the food at Made In Belfast may be made in Belfast, there’s a real global feel to the menu. One of the highlights of the lunch menu is a squid and BLT sandwich combination – if you’re looking for it on the menu it’s eloquently billed as the Calamari Club Sandwich with Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato & Lobster Mayo.
3. Cheeseburger Spring Rolls
Student-favoured haunt The Eg has branched out with an exciting new food menu to please those of limited means as well as hardened foodies looking for the next big gastrocraze. Their combination of Cheeseburger Spring Rolls is awesome on about 15 levels.
4. Courgettes, Goat’s Curd, Peach & Salted Hazelnut
Michael Deane’s newest restaurant EIPIC is one of the most expensive in the city. But you get what you pay for and if you’ve got the cash this is the place to splash it. The menu changes in EIPIC every week, but you’re always guaranteed to be amazed by the eclectic combinations of head chef Danni Berry.
