The Skinny Kitchen, Belfast

The Skinny Kitchen, Belfast

Keeping with our recent visit to Belfast, one of our go to places to get a really nice vegan meal is the Skinny Kitchen. Located on the Boucher Road, unlikely enough amidst a retail park, that being said it is easy to find parking and the place is usually full.

Most of the items on their menu are available as vegan options, where you can swap out a section for a vegan substitute and there are some dedicated vegan meals also available.

One of the first times we went there it was completely by accident, whilst driving past I spotted their sign and we decided to pull in. Ironically enough we had eaten not too long before this, never the less we have decided to try something in every vegan restaurant, café we come across.

Our first meal there consisted of a vegan pizza on a tortilla base with a bowl of messy skinny sweet potato fries for sharing between the two of us. The meal was tasty and definitely very filling, but then again it was our second dinner that day. I also spotted on that occasion that they did vegan desserts but no matter how much I wanted one, there was definitely no space.

We quickly decided that we were going to have to make a return visit. A few weeks later we were back up visiting family and decided on having a full dinner there.

This time I opted for the noodles and Alan had the chilli followed by the dessert, a healthy banana, coconut cream, chia seed and mixed grain, nuts and dried fruit mix. Again the meal was filling and delicious, it is actually really nice to be able to go to a restaurant and have the vegan alternative options on the menu, so you pretty much know what choices are available.

Most times when asking, it feels like it can be too much effort, or that you are being awkward, or then there are the times the meat or dairy section is taken out and there is nothing extra put in leaving you with half a meal for the same price.

The Skinny Kitchen is definitely an excellent place to visit if you are on the look out for good vegan food in Belfast. The have various other locations from Ibiza to Canterbury and Bournemouth, and their menu is available online at, do take note that the menu may slightly vary from location to location.
