Belfast's newest vegetarian restaurant Jumon opens doors

By Andrew Madden

A new Asian restaurant specialising in vegetarian food has opened its doors in Belfast.

Jumon on Fountain Street, in the city centre, is the latest eaterie from the team behind Banh Street Food on Upper Arthur Street, also in the city centre.

Owner Nox, who come from Bangkok and who does not use a surname, said she had "fallen in love" with Belfast since coming here a few years ago.

"The idea behind Jumon was a long time in the making and came from our desire to eat the food we wanted that we felt wasn't available anywhere in Belfast, namely plant-based dishes that are healthy and well-balanced, full of flavour and appealing to meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike," she added.

Nox teamed up with restaurateur Niall Davis, one of the owners of Howard Street Restaurant, to create Jumon. Mr Davis formerly operated The Permit Room - later renamed The Beringer - from the same unit.
