Review // Chaophraya, L1, Liverpool

I’m sure you all understand by now that this blog is all about food! I love to cook, bake and dine out often so when an invite landed in my inbox to try the new menu at Chaophraya in Liverpool, I just had to attend! Chaophraya is somewhere I’ve actually been a couple of times before and really loved the experience, the restaurant’s interior and most importantly, the food! However my other half hadn’t been before and I was excited to take him along as I knew he would be bowled over! On arrival, we were quickly greeted and seated in the downstairs section of the restaurant, in perfect view of the open kitchen. The entire menu had been given a re-vamp with the restaurant owners taking a trip to Thailand to really nail Thai cuisine and bring it to a British, and more importantly, scouse audience! The drinks menu offered plenty of variation so I decided to opt for a short cocktail – choosing to sample the Soam Sugar cocktail which blended vanilla vodka, …

Review // Mowgli, Bold Street, Liverpool

​Mogwli is one of those highly sought-after Bold Street restaurants that you hear so much about but really struggle to get a table at! With a strict ‘no reservations’ policy and an eclectic number of tables inside, I knew it was somewhere I just had to try. On a rainy mid-week evening a friend and I managed to bag a table. The eatery was rather full with a choice of just two tables, so we were lucky to bag a spot. Nestled at the bag of the restaurant, in full sight of the beautifully decorated bar area, we took our places and knew we were in for a treat. One of the first things that struck me upon entry was the delicious aromas that filled the restaurant. Renowned for its delectable menu of Indian street food, I was drawn to the variety of small plates of food taking pride of place at neighbouring tables. Mowgli is the kind of place that doesn’t need fanfare – its loyal customers and word of mouth serve it well. …

Food // Wahaca, Liverpool

Yesterday I had my first works social in my new job. The sun was shining and after a long 4 day week, as soon as the clock hit 4.30 we downed tools and headed to Wahaca.  I’d heard good things about the chain and I’m a huge fan of Mexican food so it already got a thumbs up from me. Plus we were ready for a cocktail or 3!          The Liverpool branch is deceptively big, spanning three floors plus a roof terrace. When we arrived around 5.30 a couple of tables were taken, but they had space for our party of 6.  The menu was a lot bigger than I expected too with a choice of smaller, tapas-style dishes or big ears – meals for one basically.  I opted for 2 of the smaller dishes plus a side. I settled on the chicken tacos, a sweet potato and feta dish and a side of green rice and black beans. It was delicious and the perfect amount – meaning i had space for pina …

Food // Neon Jamon, Smithdown Place, Liverpool

Neon Jamon wasn’t on my radar until I moved closer to Liverpool but since then I’d heard nothing but ravd reviews. So earlier this week, along with a group of friends, I went along to see what the fuss was about! I went with 4 friends and we were very hungry indeed, which is why we ended up ordering 15 dishes! The menu provided so much choice but a handful of my favourites had to be the cheese croquettes, mushrooms, potatas bravas and the mini burgers. It was fantastic value for money and we had a great time – chatting, catching up and working our way through the different dishes we ordered!  

Food // Bakchick, Bold Street, Liverpool

 Bakchich is one of those restaurants that you visit often but always forget how much you love it. I called in last week as I wanted to grab something to eat somewhere fairy inexpensive and where I happily eat alone – with minimal embarrassment about being a solo diner. And, it was mission accomplished!        

Food // The Aviary, Ormskirk, Restaurant Review

Since we moved to Ormskirk, I’m on a quest to try the many different restaurants and eateries in the area. And somewhere that caught my eye during a weekend walk was The Aviary. We (I) decided it was the perfect place to take our mums for Mother’s Day and it didn’t disappoint! Set just off the main road, it’s aptly named as there’s a huge aviary, next to the outdoor seating area and a field at the front filled with goats and llamas.  The attention to detail inside is just superb with staff who couldn’t be more helpful and a lovely bird themed décor with gold birdcage lampshades. There was a set menu and a choice of either 2 or 3 courses, but there was lots of choice, making it the perfect place to suit everyone! We all settled on 3 courses, with the pate and the fishcakes being our starters of choice. I had the fishcakes and they were divine. Served with a side salad and lemon and garlic mayo, they were light, fluffy …
