Home bakeries on every corner, all with their own baps, soda bread, wheaten and barmbracks. (Sadly, a thing of the past)

Champ.  It's now fashionable over here.

The most wonderful fresh fish and seafood from the market.

McCartney's pork sausages (not strictly Belfast).

All those ethnic restaurants on the Lisburn Road.

Johnny Long's fish and chips.

I hope you bought those paris buns from us Chink  ;)

Mum used to make lovely treacle bread, rhubarb tarts, candy apples and honeycomb, fond memories for me :)   She also used to cook the beetroot and sell it in the shop, God only know where she got the time ???

Any one remember Paddy Flood's Bakery on or near Carrick Hill.  He made the most amazing soda farls and treacle farls. He was always covered from head to foot in flour and had a cigarette permanently lit. There was also a stew shop in Agnes Street where the stew was almost white - but tasted fantastic. My mom always made soup at the weekend - with every vegetable chopped with TLC. It aways included a piece of shin beef and a marrow bone.

I went in a few months back.  Hadn't been in for years.  The girl behind the counter still recognised me.  Great place.

Mrs Zan still makes her own vegetable soup, with chicken stock.  Trouble is, you can only get the soup veg in NI.  M&S sell it there, but not in GB, so she has to get a stock in when she's over.

Thanks Eros.  There's a Tesco just outside Conwy.  I'll suggest she tries it.  But she'll be sorted soon anyway.  She'[censored] the Holyhead ferry tomorrow for ten days with her brother on the Seven Mile Straight.

She makes stew too.  Had some last week.  But she's been adding a wee twist to it for the last few years: half a bird eye chilli.  I'd recommend it.
