I'm be travelling to Northern Ireland and Dublin for two weeks in January.

I do eat fish, but prefer a 'California-centric' diet -- ie. lots of spice, lots of vegetables. Having spent a lot of time in London, I have found myself consistently disappointed, and usually bite my tongue, try not to complain, and end up eating lots of Indian/Thai that it always twice as bland and twice as greasy than what you would finds state-side.

If anyone has any suggestions about where to go to eat in either Dublin or Belfast, or has suggestions about entrees to avoid (I was warned about Irish 'egg salad' being a mayonnaise-fest) or to request to maximize vegetable intake and minimize the fried stuff, I would be very appreciative.

I don't mean to sound snotty, maybe I just have a very American palate.

Thanks for your suggestions!
