Many of us know all about the renowned Ulster fry and there is little to beat it at breakfast time. But there are also lots of restaurants across Northern Ireland where you can sample some lesser known traditional dishes. How about a Comber potato, asparagus and mussel broth, or some Lough Neagh smoked eel with an apple glaze? Steak lovers will adore the salt aged sirloin with potato boxty, while local salmon cured in whisky is a must for seafood fans.
There are so many restaurants in Northern Ireland focused on bringing you the finest flavours from around the world. Look out for some great Chinese, Indian and Thai restaurants and some classic French and Italian establishments. More and more restaurants across Northern Ireland are also beginning to fuse these flavours with local ingredients and cooking traditions, creating a whole new world of fusion taste sensations. Good old fish and chips, for example, is taken to a new level with cod cooked in an Asahi beer tempura batter.
