EATING OUT |  A £5 lunch in Belfast

We sent Josh out this past week with a very small budget to see where he could get a lunch in Belfast as a student for around a fiver.  Check out his findings.

1.  Build a Burger

The place where you can get almost anything you want on a burger; from something relatively normal like a fried egg to the utter bizarre like gummy bears, Build a Burger has it all. It's cheap too. Between 11.30am and 3.30pm you can get a steak, chicken or vegetarian burger with chips, salad or coleslaw for just £5.50. You can then build your burger with as many of the huge range of toppings you want and will be well and truly satisfied! 

Location: Botanic


2.  Bubbacue

Slow cooked pulled pork and beef, always a winner for a post-lecture lunch! Bubbacue pride themselves on slow cooked meat served fast and is a firm favourite for Belfast’s student population. For around £6.25 you can get either a sandwich, salad, bowl or wrap with chicken, beef, sausage or, of course, pork with a side.

Location: Botanic or Callender Street

3.  Little Wing

Pizza is always the ultimate comfort food at uni and Little Wing provides a great lunch deal to keep you going on a long hard day of assignments. For just £4.95 you can get any 6” pizza with a salad between 11 am and 4 pm.

Location: Lisburn Rd or Ann Street 


4.  Boojum

Of course, we couldn’t’ do this article without mentioning the staple of the Belfast student’s diet that is Boojum. Boojum is the go-to place for Belfast students with its close proximity to the McClay Library making it the perfect place to go for a quick but hearty lunch. For around £5.90 you can get a burrito, bowl or salad packed with rice, meat, beans and all the trimmings.

Location: Botanic, Chichester St, Great Victoria St, Vic
