Belfast at Observer's top table when it comes to food
Belfast's food scene has beaten some of London's best-known eateries to grab a place at the top table in a list of the world's top gourmet trends in 2015.
'Belfast's Food Scene' was number eight in a list of 50 in the Observer Food Monthly's annual list, which singled out St George's Market and Ox restaurant for particular praise.
"Until recently, outside of Northern Ireland, there was probably more awareness of Boney M's cheesy 1977 hit Belfast than of the city's food and drink scene," it said. "But record-breaking success in last year's Great Taste Awards (with 264 products from Northern Ireland food companies recognised) and an increasingly confident restaurant scene has changed that."
