My mates are obsessed with that Boojum, they'll drive up for burritos or whatever it is they do every 2 or 3 weeks.

Boojum isn't much of a restaurant but more of a fast food place, but it is pretty good.

Walked past the one on Great Victoria St the day it first opened and the queue was around the corner about halfway down to City Hall. Never been in one, but that's piqued my interest enough to convince me to see what all the fuss is about someday.

I've had a couple of great meals in the Barking Dog.

Justin,I'm surprised by you saying Hadskis wasn't good. It's up there as my favourite.

I would recommend Ox.

I must have caught it on a bad night. Don't think I've ever sent a dish back before but they'd forgotten to add one of the ingredients. I wouldn't have minded, but there were only about three in the dish!

Will certainly try Ox. Might bring my mates over as we do a trip once a year to a nice restaurant. Oslo this time. It was amazing.

If you are from Northern Ireland, middle-aged or younger, and havent been to Boojum yet, well... Shame on you

Cafe Vaudeville does a decent snack. As for Boojum, pile of muck imo

Dunno about that. I reckon I spend way too much in cafes and restaurants. At the end of the day it's just dinner. The price of wine or a bottle of beer in this country is what really irks me though.

Boojum does what it does well, limited but decent.

Any true Ulster supporters should just blindly eat there and say only positive things about it, as its owned by Andy Maxwell.

Boojum is brill

Rocky... you not do the Manderin at Ballyhackamore.

Yes, it's good too but I think the other two are a bit better. Ballysnackamore is a great place for food now - nothing that's absolutely fabulous but very decent eateries of all kinds within about 250 metres strolling.

Not a huge fan of Mexican food, so never had any interest in going to Boojum. Tedford's Kitchen down beside the Waterfront is a very good spot.

Barking dog is a good joint.

Was at Il Pirata on newtownards road the other week. Lovely.

Four winds not bad, decent grub, good atmosphere...on a side note they do a pre and post match pint, transport to and from game and a match ticket for 22 quid...mighty good value in my book.
