Someone please convince me that there is good food to be had in Northern Ireland

I have been travelling regularly to Northern Ireland for the past 4 years and every time I go I am staggered by what appears to be an absolute absence of good food. Everything I have ever ordered has been either fried or boiled, is almost entirely void of seasoning other than salt and comes drowned in either mayonaise, butter or fat. A personal observation: I have yet to have had one meal in Northern Ireland where one of the following ingredients wasn't involved: butter, potatoes, some type of pig product, sugar, tea. I find it hard to believe that the only regional dish is the 'Ulster fry'.

This is an appeal to anyone who has experienced excellent cooking in Northern Ireland - please tell me where to get it! Certainly it must exist...
