Belfast has gained some reputation in the tourist department; famous for its towering yellow cranes ‘H & W’ and the World leading tourist attraction Titanic Museum but finding good delicious places to eat at can be a little difficult as a tourist. Sometimes being a vegan it can be a lot more difficult having to research to find places we are able to eat at, from looking up menus online, calling up restaurants asking if they have any vegan options or asking your friends for recommendations. Therefore I thought I would share a few eateries in Belfast that I have had food in & are suitable for vegans that I have personally tried and tested and can confirm that they all rock!
Japanese inspired restaurant also located on the top floor of Victoria Square in Belfast city centre. When I visited this eatery I was meeting my friend before she left for university, we decided to try out some Japanese food for the first time, I had tried the Itame Yasai with stir-fry tofu and rice noodles- I absolutely loved it, the meal came in a bowl with a slight spicy broth, it was basically like a Japanese soup. Highly recommend trying Wagamama’s for a vegan meal. Quick service in this branch in Belfast It is a little bit expensive but every once in a while wouldn’t hurt anyone, right?
Acton & Sons
A great restaurant for vegans. With a range of different options to choose from you are spoilt for choice here in Actons & Sons. The Restaurant is located on 17 Brunswick Street, with a very modern interior and lovely friendly staff on hand. I have personally had the Chickpea curry, Salt and Pepper Tofu and Tahini Lentils with tofu at this restaurant, each one of these meals were delicious. Obviously I did not have 3 meals at once, this was split over the course of a few months haha. I’m not that greedy, but if I’m honest I would eat tham all if I could. I believe that the Tahini Lentils were the best. They also do vegan cocktails which would be great for anyone who loves a good alcoholic beverage with their meal.
This one is just for milkshakes! Maggie Mays is the best for vegan milkshakes. I went here with my friend after a little photo shoot, she was saying how the ‘shakes in Maggie Mays were something everyone needed to try- she wasn’t wrong. I got the skittles ‘shake, it was so thick and fruity. I wanted to have two pints of it, haha. I definitely recommend you try these milkshakes if you are ever in the Botanic Avenue or Malone Road in Belfast drop into this café and order yourself a milkshake.
