The Cloth Ear is a public bar, located in The Merchant Hotel, recommended by my Twitter friend Zoe Anderson.
The Cloth Ear offers an interesting vegan menu, with some good options, but I went with Zoe's suggestion of sea veg and chips.
What a good choice this turned out to be, I have never eaten anything, that looks so much like a piece of battered fish.
The whole dish was so tasty, with a very light but extra crispy batter, delicious chips, minted peas and a lovely herby vegan tartare sauce. The fish was actually courgette wrapped in sea kelp and will be added to my repertoire of dishes to replicate at home. I left a clean plate, it was that good.
I love that The Cloth Ear offers a vegan menu and a good one at that and I would definitely revisit, when we return to Belfast, hopefully sooner rather than later.
