Our city has a fantastic, diverse food and drink scene, with plenty to offer for everyone. Whether you love a gin balloon and a small plate or fancy a giant burger and a milkshake, there’s no reason to eat in the same places time and time again. Recently, we’ve been sampling some amazing menus and venues, and here are 5 to add to your must visit list.
Rosa’s Thai Cafe
Mentioned in our previous review, Rosa’s is an authentic Thai restaurant that was first born in London and has made its way up North for scousers to try its creative take on traditional Thai dishes. Amazing flavours and plenty to choose, Rosa’s is slowly becoming an Unlock Liverpool favourite, and, what’s more, it sits on the docks with a gorgeous view of the waterfront. Go go go.
Neslted in a corner off Duke Street, Clockworks is a fantastic venue full of amazing, industrial style decor and, wait for it, Irn Bru ON TAP. The restaurant and bar is a fantastic place grab a bite to eat or enjoy a drink and some live music. Recently, they hosted a HALLOUMI brunch pop up – yes you heard that right – that expertly incorporated halloumi into every single one of their dishes – from halloumi filled waffles right through to eggs benedict. We had the pleasure of sampling the pop up’s menu and can only hope it returns.
The Brunch Club
It’s sat loud and proud on Duke Street for a while but The Brunch Club has just had an impressive new makeover that not only includes a stunning, instagrammable interior but also a re-vamped brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktail menu with some seriously impressive offerings. Whether you’re sunday brunchin’ with a Bloody Mary and a strong coffee or are seeking Friday night drinks and nibbles, the new and improved Brunch Club really does have it all.
These guys have totally nailed the simple but oh so delicious chips in a cone and we can vouch for how delicious they were. Crispy, fluffy, salty…everything a chip should be, piled into a cone, with a dip of your choice. From traditional frites through to satay sauce, you can dip your chips any which way you please. What’s more, this amazing new eatery has landed right inside the Dockside Dining Club – so with the views of the waterfront, a drink in one hand and a cone of chips in the other, your summer is pretty much sorted.
Birdies Bar and BBQ
Sat outside the iconic Cains Brewery and back and better than ever for summer festivities, the colourful Birdies BBQ is an outdoor bar serving a neverending list of cocktails and housing food trucks such as phooeys dim sum which sure cook up epic street food. This is definitely one to consider for fun in the sun – your new and improved go-to beer garden.
The guys behind the delicious Skaus are back and this time sat right inside Liverpool’s Camp and Furnace and will be known as Skaus Kafe. The casual eatery will serve a range of delicious food from roast dinners to hearty brunches and as well as this, a range of small plates to encourage sociable dining within the Camp and Furnace venue. Food will be served from 24th April and we can’t wait to get stuck in.
