To put it bluntly, I eat out A LOT! I visit restaurants at least once or twice a week (although not at the moment), whether that be in the city centre or a local pub. I thought it only fitting to write a blog post on some of my favourite restaurants in Liverpool that I think everyone should visit.
1. Yard and Coop – Hanover Street
I am a sucker for junk food, so when Yard and Coop arrived in Liverpool how could I have missed the opportunity to grab a plateful of deliciousness. Yard and Coop specialise in buttermilk fried chicken, piled high on a massive burger or smothered with sauce on top of fries, they have it all. They also have a ‘Dirty Afternoon Tea’ option available, which I was lucky enough to try out on my Birthday last year, courtesy of my boyfriend! Not only is the food to die for, but the decor is really unique! They have booths available which replicate chicken coops, and a giant mural of chickens crossing the road, similar to that of the classic Beatles Abbey Road album cover.
2. Bundobust – Bold Street
Veggie’s rejoice, this one is perfect for you. Situated on Liverpool’s iconic Bold Street, you’re sure to enjoy this Indian street food feast. They offer various combo deals for 2, 4 or 6-8 people, or you can simply order any of their dishes individually. We ordered the combo for two, this consisted of Bhajis, Bundo Chaat, Paneer Tikka, Tarka Dhal & rice and finally Masala Dosa. We also ordered a side Bhatura (deep fried Indian Flatbread 😍). Bundobust don’t use any plastic cutlery and everything is made of recyclable materials ♻!!
3. Cuthberts Bakehouse – Mount Pleasant
Located in close proximity to the Knowledge Quarter, this quaint cafe has everything you could wish for. Cuthberts serves freshly baked cakes and pastries daily, available to take away or sit inside. They serve up a variety of different afternoon teas, varying from the classic to their New York afternoon tea (featuring minature cheeseburgers and french fries). The last time I visited was in January, so I opted for a Brie and Crandberry toastie, I wanted to clutch onto the last of the Chrismtas festivities.
4. Death Row Diner – Hope Street
I am completely obsessed with burgers, I’m a bit of a connoisseur. I’ve tried many burgers over the years, therefore I can hand on heart say that Death Row Diner cook up the absolute best burgers. They not only look amazing but they taste delicious. The burgers also have the cute addition of a lollipop in the bun instead of your typical skewer. They don’t only serve burgers but loaded Tater Tots and huge sandwiches. Veggie and vegan’s fear not, they also have options for you too. If you think you can handle a starter, I’d recommend ordering the Deep Fried Lasagna Bites they are amazing but super filling, you have been warned!
5. Six by Nico Liverpool
I’ve visited Six twice since its opening in November 2019 and I have a more in depth review of my experience here. I love how unique this restuarant is, 6 courses and the menu changes every 6 weeks. Due to the coronavirus all of our beloved bars and restaurants are closed, but Six are offering a 4 course tasting menu to enjoy at home. The menu is changing every week and pre-orders open Friday mornings at 9am.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my top 5 restaurants to visit in Liverpool. Although we have a while to go before we can venture out for some well earned food and drink, I’ve enjoyed reminiscing on the places I know and love. Where do you love to eat in Liverpool?
