So today I’m going with something a little different and I’m going to be talk about the amazing lunch I had the other day. Just before Christmas Eve my mum and brother came up to Belfast to take me and my boyfriend out for lunch. We headed to one of my favourite places, The French village on the Lisburn road.
I started off with a frozen mango daiquiri which was one of the nicest I have ever had! I know I don’t drink an awful lot but I thought it’s Christmas I may as well have one. Then straight to the good bit we all got our mains order and patiently watched all the amazing food come out of the kitchen. I went for gammon in ciabatta, my mother went for seafood chowder, my brother pork belly and waffles and my boyfriend the beef brisket.
All the food came out promptly and everyone was delighted with the food. I’ve also kinda been a fussy eater and it’s only really in the past year I’ve started ordering more creative things. By a fussy eater I mean, only eating rice, or pasta with butter. 🙈 I didn’t try stew until after I was 18 because I didn’t like the look of it haha. Since my dad took me to the muddlers club it’s change my life, only knowing 3 items in the dish will open up your mind. My boyfriends kinda similar to me in being a plain eater, though his beef brisket came out with slaw and all which he ended up really enjoying it. But enough about us being fussy and back to the amazing food!
My gammon came out in ciabatta oozing melted cheese with tomatoes peaking out. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a sandwich as nice as this one! There was also something else inside the sandwich though I couldn’t pick out what it was and have a head like a sieve trying to remember the menu haha.
Once we had devoured our mains we moved on to dessert. I went for a salted caramel, banana and praline loaf. My mother the salted caramel brownie and my brother the hazelnut brownie. All having a cappuccino and a peroni for the boyfriend. The desserts all went down amazing my loaf was the freshest and moist banana bread I’ve ate. The salted caramel brownie is a family favourite and is always one of the desserts ordered. I love the layout of the place and you have loads of room to get comfy.
The bakery part at the front always have me drooling before I even sit down with a wide range of macaroons, cakes and treats. If you’re looking somewhere with amazing food/desserts, friendly staff and good prices in Belfast I would put The French Village at the top of my list. Until next time ❤🦄
