If you’re a regular around here then you’ll know that I like my food. Both conjuring up new recipes to try and heading into the city for dinner; so I thought I’d give you a rundown of my top 5 places to eat in Liverpool!

  • Mowgli

Having tried both branches on Bold Street and Water Street, I’m completely sold. Complete with a beautiful decor in both restaurants, a menu packed with tempting dishes and a great atmosphere, it’s perfect for those wanting to explore Indian street food.
I’d say my favourite branch of the restaurant is hidden away on Water Street. From the outside, it’s rather unassuming but once you’re inside you’re greeted with beautiful foliage decor, seating areas tucked away in two’s, up above on the balcony or in the main area of the restaurant. I’d advise arriving hungry as you will wait to try a bit of everything, which coincidentally is advised. Sharing between two of us, we tucked in the chat bombs, mother butter curry, a succulent lamb dish, chicken wings, the cheese on toast, utterly delicious chip butties and a sharer of both rice and naan. All demolished, leaving us with rather fully bellies!

  • Bakchich

Bakchich had been on the list for a while. Located on the most ‘foodie’ street in the city, I was sold on the idea of Lebanese food and it didn’t disappoint. Being part of the Bold Street massive, the eatery accepts walk-in’s only so you may have to stand and ogle diner’s food whilst waiting for a table….but trust me, it’s worth the wait!
With the menu displayed up above the main counter, it’s very easy to be swayed by the array of food on offer. From hot mezze including hummus, sweet potato falafel and beautifully grilled halloumi; it’s very easy to get lost in the food. I tend to opt for grilled halloumi, a chicken shawarma wrap and a side of hummus. Grilled, delicious, perfectly spiced and just so, so good!

  • Neon Jamon

There’s two branches of Neon Jamon in the city, Allerton Road and Berry Street in the city centre. I actually blogged about Neon Jamon last year, but I thought it was worth a mention again as we enjoyed it so much. I love sharing food and trying different dishes; so the tapas at Neon Jamon ticks the boxes. It’s so easy to get carried away, wanting to try it all, but I whole hardheartedly advise you do, so fill your boots!

  • Sapporo Teppenyaki

Another restaurant that I wouldn’t have thought to visit if it wasn’t for a blog review, but I have nothing but great things to say and we’ve said we’d love to go again with a group of friends.
Tucked away on Duke Street, it’s a stones throw away from Seel Street, so this is the kinda place to head for dinner first, before a night of drinks and dancing. The USP of Sepporo Teppenyaki is that each table has a private chef, expertly cooking your food in front of you. Combining great food with a touch of humour and a winning atmosphere, I really rate this place.

  • Fazenda

I’d love to hear your recommendations – if there’s somewhere I must try, let me know in the comments!
