A brand-new healthy eating focused restaurant has opened in Belfast City Centre. Stacks Healthy Kitchen has welcomed its customers to the 1,600 sq. ft unit at the trendy Soloist building, following an investment of £300,000, creating 25 new jobs. The new restaurant joins neighbour Caffe Nero at the modern office block, boosting the culinary offering at this part of the city.
Fronted by James Deery, owner of Stacks Bistro on the Mallusk Road in Newtownabbey, Stacks Healthy Kitchen is set to provide a new approach to healthier eating. The restaurant will cater for all ages, offering a wide range of healthy meal options, to include lower calorie meals that will satisfy all tastes and lifestyle choices. The menu is perfectly designed for those aiming to achieve a healthier lifestyle, designing meals on the go, without compromising on flavour or price. There are also dishes on the menu that will include more indulgent meals to satisfy any food cravings or have a treat on ‘cheat day’.
Features of the menu include the pick and mix breakfast box, lunch time specials, show time menu and the introduction of ‘BYOB’. There is a carefully designed protein packed shake menu, made with the finest and fresh ingredients, perfect for snacks or post work-out meals.
The restaurant will serve coffee courtesy of Antrim company Wake Up and Taste, with a full selection of milk alternatives. In a bid to become more environmentally conscious, all take away boxes are 100% biodegradable.
Stacks Healthy Kitchen owner, James Deery, said, “We are delighted to finally open Stacks Healthy Kitchen. This restaurant has been two years in the making and it is wonderful to see everything come together. The Soloist building was a prime location for us, with the newly rebranded ICC Belfast (Waterfront Hall) next door as well as Hilton Hotel, St George’s Market and a wide range of large companies located in our vicinity, we knew this would be a unique and exciting location. We are confident Stacks will be well received by the people of Belfast and we already have plans in place to bring the restaurant to other locations in Northern Ireland.”
James added, “For us it is simple; we make healthier food that stacks up. We serve quality meals that are value for money, especially with our unlimited sandwich stacker deal. Our menu has been thoughtfully curated to address everyone’s needs, assisting them to achieve their goals, however big or small. There are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, as well as more indulgent meals for the days when people feel like treating themselves. We are going to continually develop our menu, ensuring that all our customers are catered for.”
Stacks Healthy Kitchen will also be launching their own unique app which provides customers with the opportunity to opt for ‘fast-pass’ options, avoiding any queues in the process.
Plans are in place for the app to ultimately house the Stacks meal plan service, enabling customers to order 10 customised healthy meals a week, for a set rate, having these delivered to their door. We are also in discussions with various gym brands about setting up an ongoing partnership between the restaurant and personal training programmes.
