i feel a little sad that there are perhaps 6 people on here that may appreciate the wonderfulness of this news.

on the plus side, all the more for us.

Maybe we should do a photo story of toasted veda for the food porn section some time, a drop of bacon cheezly wired onto it for the savoury.

Can I join the Veda party? Om nom nom nom.
I must admit that I'm also a massive Soreen fan. Was converted when I lived in Belfast. Bloody near impossible to get Veda down here...I sense a road trip in the new year...

YES! I had always just assumed that veda was non-vegan for some reason until Fezza posted that list!

I can't read what you wrote because I'm too distracted by the new avatar of Hannibal Poppy.

Does everyone know Giro's opened up again? They're in the Warzone centre in Little Victoria Street. Vegan cafe on Saturday and Wednesday (film showing on Wed night too) and Vegetarian with Vegan options on Fridays now too. I haven't tried it myself yet but it seems to be getting popular. They have a facebook page.

we swung by wednesday evening after our curtailed cycle. had the tagine and cake and ice cream. so nice!

o also went to archana on dublin road last night after realising the menu had a good dozen vegan options. was very good. followed it with going to see the soderbergh flick haywire, wherein gina carano runs past gopal in barcelona. which made us smile.

Great to hear you enjoyed it stranger!

The Archana is so good, their vegan jalfrazi and garlic nann is just delicious. I've seen at least two Indian families dining in there so far, it's a good sign (they didn't seem to be friends of the staff).

i know fezza mentioned this previously, but the veggie club in the black box is going to be a regular thing. details etc...

http://veggiefoodclub.com

i'm not sure what the vegan options are, and can't make tomorrow. anyone planning on going and up for posting a match report?

also, in other not getting my asparagus places in time news, there may be vegan cookies at st george's market. my folks picked me up some from the market in bangor and they were, as they say, the shizzle. the lady who baked them says she has a stall in st george's. i have not yet made it down. anyone else confirm they weren't just a 1 off?

They might have got them from the 'Check out my Buns' stall, she's usually in St Georges at the weekend with a couple of different vegan options. If you join her facebook page you can see where she is each week.

Good thread! I was in Belfast in May and within minutes of arriving stumbled upon Build-a-Burger, which I had found in my veg-search earlier. I went in and was pondering over the 2 veggie burgers, when the people working there asked me if I was vegan, and then told me which burger was vegan.
THEY asked ME, before I had a chance to say anything.
That never happens!
So I fell in love with all of them, and then fell in love with the vegan burger. And Belfast too actually. (I gotta lotta love to share.)
Will def be back soon!

Oh, also for the record- Cayenne served up a lovely vegan roasted couscous dish!

Hello there, Northern Irish vegans!

I'm going to be moving to Belfast in May, and my boyfriend is going to be finding an apartment for us (and moving there) sometime before December. I was wondering if anyone had tips for an area in walking distance of a good health food grocery. In addition to being vegan, I am also allergic to gluten and soy, so a grocery with things I can use in cooking is pretty important. My sweetheart is doing research on his own (as he lives in Belfast currently), but I thought it might be helpful to get some input here. :)

Thanks! :D

P.S. I will probably be unable to work for my first 6 months or so in Belfast, so I'll have a lot of free time for meeting up with like-minded folks. :)

Wow, can't believe I missed this thread till now. I'm up on the North Coast, so excited to hear that The Bushmills Inn is vegan friendly! Shall get me tere next time budget allows!

Very jealous of Belfast types who have health food shops and EVERYTHING, one day when I'm less covered in children I'll be able to take advantage- till then Amazon is my friend!

hello!

even though belfast is pretty small, my knowledge of current health food shops is embarrassingly lacking. the two i go to are here...

http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/the-nutmeg-belfast

and here...

http://www.yelp.co.uk/biz/eatwell-foods-belfast

eatwell is my local while the nutmeg is in the city centre and handy to my work. there are several holland and barretts in the town and also a few places which are more about protein shakes with a shelf of soya milk and the like. they're probably best avoided. while we're at it, i have issues with h+b too. have they quit workfare or not?

anyhow. as i said, belfast is pretty small, so a trip to either eatwell or the nutmeg wouldn't be unreasonable unless you were way the heck out in the suburbs. i can definitely recommend both.

Thank you, stranger! The Nutmeg is close to where my boyfriend works, so we will probably be set no matter where we end up moving. He made a trip to Eatwell and thought it was really good too, so maybe we'll end up near there. Thanks again for your input! :)

I'm going to be in Letterkenny for two weeks in June! However, I've not been able to find anywhere even veg-friendly on Happy Cow, so can anyone give me some suggestions please? I'll be busy all day during the week but should have the weekends free.
