Ruth Writes is a 30-something Liverpool based blog covering mid-size fashion, pescatarian food and beauty.
When it comes to eating out I tend to stick t what I know, often giving spicy food a miss but when the lovely team at Turtle Bay got in touch asking if I’d like to pop along to either one of the two Liverpool branches to sample the new menu, I decided it’s high time I try new things.
We opted to spend a belated birthday date night at the Hanover Street branch to extend celebrations further!
We arrived with rumbling tummies and ready to dive straight in to the menu. To start, I went for the Trini Doubles, flatbread filled with curried chickpeas and Darren opted for the been glazed ribs. Both packed with flavour and utterly delicious.
After taking advantage of the 2 for 1 cocktails, our mains arrived and we eagerly tucked in! I’m not the best with spice so chose the Mo Bay Chicken with rice and peas and a side of cheesy jerk fries. The sweet coconut sauce complemented the kick to the jerk fries and it was so tasty and moreish.
Darren opted for the jerk sirloin steak and a side of cheesy jerk fries after getting jealous at my side order! Whilst it was more medium well, than his preferred choice of medium rare but he loved the marinated flavour.
Overall we were impressed with our meal and the service was fantastic. I actually preferred the Hanover St location to Victoria St too as it felt like a great bar / restaurant venue and extremely welcoming.
