Before the holiday season kicks in, here’s the tastiest way to travel by sampling the world on a plate and trying 10 different cuisines from 10 Liverpool restaurants.
China – Chamber 36
Just a stone’s throw from the Chinese arch, Chamber 36 on Berry Street combines the street food experience with a stunning looking restaurant and cocktail bar. Grab a booth or a high stool at the bar for small plates and dim sum, steamed bao buns and classic mains. Follow on Facebook here.
Spain – Lunya/Lunyalita
Anyone who’s ever been to Spain knows how fabulous genuine traditional Spanish food can be. The owners of Lunya in Liverpool ONE and its Albert Dock sibling have recreated their own award-winning version with sharing platters from their deli and an absolute feast of tapas. Follow Lunya on Facebook here.
Brazil – Fazenda
Cattle herding in Brazil might not be high on most bucket lists, but a visit to Fazenda on Exchange Flags can at least tick off one authentic gaucho to-do. This place is a meat lovers’ dream and you get to keep it coming at your own pace with a traffic light card on the table. Follow Fazenda on Facebook here.
USA – Free State Kitchen
Tucked away off Hope Street, and with one of the best hidden beer gardens in the city, FSK is the place to go for a fresh take on great big finger-stretching burgers all made with locally-sourced ingredients. The rosemary salted fries are a thing of (American) beauty too. Follow FSK on Facebook here.
Italian – The Italian Club
Partners Maurizio Pellegrini and Rosaria Crolla haven’t just brought one Italian eaterie to Liverpool city centre, they’ve pulled off a hattrick with Italian Club, Italian Club Fish and Italian Club bakery. This is Italian food made and served with passion just like Italian families love it. Follow on Facebook here.
Middle East – Maray
Coming up for its fifth birthday on Bold Street, Maray was a pioneer of small plates in Liverpool, with a heavy Middle Eastern influence. Order a table full to share and dig in – the combinations are fabulous, there’s lots of veg options, and who knew a cauliflower could taste this good? Follow Maray on Facebook here.
Mexico – Lucha Libre
Forget the sombreros, Lucha Libre on Wood Street is more about fiery flavours (look out for those super-hot chilis) which could easily have come straight from the streets of Guadalajara. Tacos, quesadillas and dirty smothered fries, washed down with margaritas – what’s not to love? Follow on Facebook here.
Thailand – Rosa’s Thai Cafe
One of the new foodie arrivals at Royal Albert Dock, London favourite Rosa’s has brought a simple modern take on Thai food using the owner’s family recipes. The pad Thai is its signature dish, or go old school with red and green curries, including salmon or butternut versions. Follow Rosa’s Thai Cafe on Facebook here.
India – Mowgli
Mowgli has a national fanbase now, but its heart belongs in Bold Street where it stacked its first tiffin tins five years ago. Ditch every curry stereotype for the kind of real healthy flavour-packed food that Indian families eat at home, and you get owner Nisha Katona’s winning formula. Follow Mowgli on Facebook here.
Morocco – Kasbah
Breathe in the smell of spices when you walk inside Kasbah Cafe and you could be wandering the souks of Marrakech not Bold Street. The menu belongs there too, so go hungry and fill up on a hearty slow-cooked tagine or kebabs off the charcoal grill, then finish with sweet baklawa.
