Kua Aina opened in the city the same week as a big name takeaway place exploded onto the Belfast foodie scene, but Kua Aina is unique and much more appealing, and it’s not a takeaway! Having already established themselves in London, the owners with the Northern Irish roots have brought this Hawaiian themed delight to Victoria Square.
We’ve been and enjoyed it a number of times already, well it is the year of Food and Drink isn’t it.
What do we love about it? Here’s another addition to our regular food feature, 6 1/2 things we love……
First up, but not necessarily our main reason, is the theme, it’s Hawaiian. You’ll get the vibe as soon as you walk in the door with the beach hut appearance, the Hawaiian shirts and well, everything else really! Everything has a Hawaiian twist.
Breakfasts are served until noon all week. Just check out this awesome blueberry and banana pancake stack with THE MOST awesome maple syrup…EVER! Enjoy breakfast with locally sourced food with a Hawaiian twist. Check out our previous review here.
Cocktails at Kua ‘Aina are totally delicious. Join in the holiday theme with little cocktail umbrella’s and a lot of colour. Even our regular guest fashion blogger Louise Vance managed to coordinate a cocktail with her fashion! They taste good and are a bit different from the traditional cocktails you’ll get elsewhere, Passion Fruit Bellini anyone, or Louise’s Avocado Wave.
The Hawaiian style food. There’s avocado everywhere. Of course that’s not the only food available. Their burgers are big and tasty, actually everything I’ve had off the menu so far has been great. From huge onion rings to awesome sweet potato fries and more! You’ve got the option of burgers, fish, chicken or vegetarian.
A great location in the heart of the Victoria Square restaurant floor means you have parking close by, you can sit outside without getting wet (although it might get cold!), then after you’ve had a few drinks and been well fed, you can hit the shops.
The drink selection is huge! Apart from the cocktails, check out the smoothies, wine, craft beers and my favourites, the milkshakes (with or without an alcohol kick), or as they describe them ‘make it hard’. Malted Vanilla and Amaretto milkshake … YUM!
Promotions are a great part of Kua ‘Aina culture with Happy Hours and seasonal treats and offers.
Get your funky coloured Hawaiian shirts on and head to Victoria Square for a night of great food, drink and fun!
