Meat in a Bap
10 Bedford Street Belfast BT2 7FB
Hard to know what to say about this place as the cafes name just about sums it up. Housed in a bijou unit on Bedford Street, with a light and airy interior minimalist canteen style decor, it's a meat lover's paradise, with a range of meaty choices cooked to order – foccacia crammed with meatballs, pork and crunchy crackling maps and sirloin steak sandwiches with tobacco onions. The sides are tasty too, ranging from beer battered onion rings and champ croquettes to mac and triple cheese. For a real meatfest, try the 'meaty treats' option that included meat bonbons, sticky barbecue ribs and hot chicken wings. The recent addition of a 'Breakfast Bap' menu, complete with sausage patty bap and scotcheggs and beans in a Bap, is proving a popular option for those en route to the office. Indeed trade is mainly takeaway courtesy of the local office crowd, but there are wooden tables and benches if you want to take a load off while chowing down on your meat., and it would be a pity to leave all this good stuff to the workers. There are a few high stools at the window for those that like to people watch, but remember that those walking past can see you too as gravy inevitably dribbles down your chin... As the menu declares, 'Grab Life by the Meat Balls'.
