Mouth-watering food to soak up the calories is on the menu when you feel like death and need a quick fix.

Here’s our top 11 recommended restaurants in Belfast that promise to soak up that alcohol and get you on the road to recovery.

1. Jenz

207 Lisburn Rd

This popular haunt on the bustling Lisburn Road serves up seriously satisfying tasty culinary delights – just what you need after a seriously heavy night out on the sauce.

This Bruce Banner Burger looks particularly able to soak up any remnants of alcohol left in your system from the night before.

It features two locally sourced, 100% Irish beef burgers, delicious battered onion rings, crispy bacon, melted cheddar, jalopeno peppers all with lettuce, tomato and south west sauce. Oh, and you also get a side of skin on rustic fries all for £7.50. So probably cheaper than your taxi home last night.

2. Loteria @Birdcage

92 Stranmillis Rd

One of the greatest brunches we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting, Loteria @Birdcage has had a total menu revamp – and it’s definitely paid off. (But more on that later!)

We recommend the Breakfast Torta if you’re feeling particularly fragile. It features Smoked Bacon or Sausages & Egg cooked as you like on a Toasted Bun w/ Rocket, Garlic Aioli & Pico de Gallo 4.95. Or check out the rest of the delicious options online!

If this doesn’t bring you back to life, you might as well give up now and go home.
