Don't tell the English but I think our fish n chips are better

That said it seems to be the people of Italian heritage here who make them, well in Belfast anyway...Fusco's make excellent fish n chips

Potato and Leek soup is deeeeeeeeeeeeelicious!

Its quite easy to mae
get a shitload of potato, chop into little cubes and boil till soft
get two big leeks, slice finely and fry in a little oil and butter adding a little bit of sage, or whatever herbs you like.
Blend with 2 cups of chicken or vegetable stck in a blender, which heaps of salt and pepper to taste until smooth.
and cream, double cream or some milk to make it creamy if you like. And interesing twist is adding coconut milk, it tastes lovely!

anyhooooo make it, its YUMMY!

Irish fish and chips are better, but it depends where you go for them
I can't think of any other irish food but out of what has been mentioned champ, soda bread and stew are the best

I'm too young to know, but irish coffee is meant to be nice

Fusco's! As it happens, my Italian teacher's family was a line of fish and chip shop owners, and he was supposed to become one himself, but the shop kept being blown up seeing as it was close to the Europa hotel.

Potato bread is what's called 'Potato Farls'. It's flat, generally sqaure, floury and I've never liked it. My sister loves it, though. However, if you're ever in Norn Ireland and you're not vegetarian you will need to try an Ulster Fry. That is a proper breakfast! You may require a trip to the hospital later, but it's worth it *wishes she wasn't vegetarian*

I have not tried this red lemonade... I must find some ASAP! And Guinness is quite good, once you get used to it

Potato bread is gorgeous toasted with butter melting over the toprools:

The Kiki (or Tiki) Cafe in town does an excellent all day fry...really great value

I am such a bread lover, so I am going to have to be careful not to eat too much ... or come to think of it not to drink too much ... but it all sounds SO delish and I can't wait to try as much of the local fare as possible!

There is nothing better than a bowl of stew/soup, brown bread warmed and yummy irish tea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I could never get enough of it and i so miss that brown bread! Me and the hubby always talk about it 3 yrs after our wonderful visit to the emerald isle.
You have to try it.. but i tell ya once you do YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME...

I adore Irish food

I always put on weight when i go there

Everything just tastes so much nicer , maybe it's my mother in laws cooking or the fresh country air

Jamieson, Soda Bread smoothered in creamy Irish butter, Irish sausages ( my personal favourite , can never resist an Irish Sausage ) Irish Coffee i could go on
