“A contemporary restaurant In Belfast city centre serves Asian fusion with a uniquely Irish twist. I’ll have the Crispy Chili Pork Dumplings with Soy & Garlic and ‘Son in Law Egg,’ but you honestly can’t go wrong! It’s best sampled with a group of friends so you can order the menu and try everything.”  —  Alana Henderson

Sunflower Public House
“The Sunflower is a relic of Belfast’s past with its Troubles-era security cage still attached! It’s a hidden gem located on a backstreet and hosting an eclectic mix of great live music seven nights a week. There’s excellent wood-fired pizza in its grungy, colorful beer garden. The tap selection focuses on local brews; I’d opt for a Boundary stout from their brewery in East Belfast. They are also a dog-friendly establishment!”  — Alana Henderson

387 Ormeau Road

“It’s actually a Vegan Cafe and the food is great too, but I come back for the coffee. It’s a nice spot to sit and people watch or do a crossword. Americano, or a coconut milk flat-white if I’m feeling fancy.”  — Alana Henderson
