Free tea and coffee and new healthy fry up launches Uluru’s #EnjoyNI16 in Armagh

ULURU Bar and Grill has officially launched its plans for the Year of Food and Drink tourism initiative by partnering up with the Ulster Gazette to give away a free tea and coffee with every coupon presented.

January has been officially themed ‘Breakfast Month’ by Tourism NI and Food NI, and, to celebrate, the Uluru crew are inviting people to participate by coming into the restaurant for a free tea or filter coffee during breakfast hours – 10am to 11.30am (Monday to Saturday).

On top of that, the crew have also stepped up to the MenuCal challenge by creating a healthy seven piece breakfast menu which is less than 400 calories.

The MenuCal campaign, devised by the Northern Ireland Hotels Federation (NIHF) and the Food Standards Agency in Northern Ireland, has been welcomed by Head Chef Dean Coppard who says ensuring diners’ needs are met is of utmost importance.

He said: “January is a month when people look for clean eating options so stepping up to this challenge will only serve to support our customers who are looking for the healthier alternative.

“We will be serving up Farm Fresh baked eggs, grilled rindless back bacon, sausages, Brennan’s Be Good wholemeal bread, thyme roasted field mushrooms and grilled tomatoes – a grand total of 372 calories.

“Other breakfast offerings will also be available but for those on a clean eating mission – this healthy fry will go down a treat. We fully support the MenuCal campaign.

“The added bonus of course is that customers coming into Uluru between 10am and 11.30am can also enjoy a free tea or filter coffee when they present us with the coupon in the Gazette.”

The year of food and drink tourism, #EnjoyNI16, is being celebrated right across the region and was officially launched at a special banquet in Belfast last week where First Minister Arlene Foster reiterated the importance of food and drink to our economy.

Speaking at the event she said: “This event gives us the opportunity to unashamedly restate that Northern Ireland’s food and drink heritage is not just unique, but among the finest tastes and flavours to be found anywhere in the world.”

Agreeing with the First Minister, Dean added: “Armagh is known as a county which connects people to our land. Uluru continually supports local producers by serving up culinary delights featuring produce from the locality. This new and healthy breakfast is another opportunity for us to showcase the talent and creativity in our front and back of house.

“We look forward to people taking benefit of the free tea and filter coffee initiative and, further to this, we welcome clean eaters to sample our brand new offering on our breakfast menu.”

Free tea and filter coffee will be served from 10am to 11.30am, Monday to Saturday, until February 6, 2016. Don’t forget to bring in your coupon which will be published in the Ulster Gazette and will be valid until February 6, 2016.
