A few weeks ago we decided to treat ourselves to Sunday lunch in Malmaison Hotel in Belfast.
The deal, known as “The Biggest Sunday Lunch in Town” is a four-course menu, which includes: soup, a selection of unlimited hors d’oeuvres, a main course and dessert. You had me at unlimited…
For starters we had potato and leek soup, which was quite peppery- it suited me as I pile black pepper on everything, but maybe a little spicey for non black pepper lovers.
Then it was up to the chef’s table for the unlimited hors d’oeuvres. On offer was Caesar, Caprese, Greek & fresh salads; hams and chorizo; pâtés and terrines; breads, cheeses and chutneys! For me, this was the highlight. The selection was great and we could have gone up a few times, if it weren’t for the two other courses awaiting us! A great choice.
For mains, Barry selected the ‘Mal burger’, which came with bacon, relish and fries, while I picked the traditional chicken roast, which was served with potatoes, vegetables and pork sausage.It was nice to get a Sunday roast as it’s something I never do!
We were quite full up by then, but I couldn’t say no to a dessert! I went for the vanilla crème brulée, while Barry picked a special tart of the day, which came with blueberry icecream!
We both enjoyed the meal, especially the selection of starters! And it was great to finally see inside the Malmaison!
