Whether you’re staying in Liverpool (take a look at the Travelodge in Liverpool city centre if you are), visiting friends or you live in the area, finding the perfect place to eat out while you’re there will always be the icing on the cake. With plenty of restaurants vying for your attention throughout the city and the surrounding area, you really will be spoiled for choice. So why not take a look at a few of these recommendations to give you a helping hand:
Recently recommended by Liverpool food blog ‘Proper Boss Food‘, it’s a restaurant situated just outside the city, has been around for the last fifteen years and its popularity shows no sign of waning. With great service and amazing food served at prices that appear way too low for the quality of the food, Owens is a firm favourite with locals and visitors to Liverpool alike. Choose from delicious starters such as grilled spiced lamb sausages glazed with maple syrup and a sweet chilli jam or Italian style herb roasted wild boar meatballs in tomatoes, garlic and basil. For mains choose from succulent pieces of venison in a damson reduction and rich roasting gravy or pan seared calf’s liver with caramelised onions and a hearty red wine sauce. To finish why not choose a delicious sharing plate consisting of lemon meringue pie, strawberry pavlova, chocolate cake and toffee cheesecake. For just £12 before 7pm and £14.50 thereafter, I’m sure you’ll agree it’s an absolute bargain.
A Southern American style diner in Berry Street that’s getting rave reviews, Yardbird is here to stay. Think cocktails, fried chicken, doughnuts and burgers and you’re halfway there. What you won’t expect however is the quality of the food on offer. The delicious homemade doughnuts carry such unusual flavours as aloe and pistachio, grapefruit campari and lemon zest icing, blood orange glazed vanilla, peanut butter glazed chocolate and even maple glazed bacon! There are mains like fried chicken with biscuits and cayenne pepper sauce or gravy, dead mans fingers in hot buffalo sauce with cheese dip, fried chicken buckets for sharing and amazing burgers, loaded with just about everything you can imagine. With sides of every kind of slaw you can imagine, maple bacon onion rings, padron peppers and buffalo fried cauliflower, the flavour combinations are out of this world.
Amazing service, the best view of The Mersey you’re ever likely to see and fantastic food make Panoramic 34 a restaurant not to be missed while you’re in Liverpool. Enjoy lunch for £25, afternoon tea, fine dining or maybe just a few cocktails at the bar in elegant surroundings overlooking the city. Savour such delights as scallops with crispy pancetta and crushed peas or Gressingham smoked duck breast with sautéed chicory and rhubarb salsa, followed by poached wild turbot with parsley purée, compressed fennel and crushed potatoes or fillet of beef, artichoke purée, fondant potato, green beans and confit cherry tomato. Top it off with chocolate tiramisu or tangerine panacotta, plus a cocktail or two, and you have the perfect recipe for an amazing meal.
Liverpool really does have some of the most amazing restaurants you’ll come across in the UK, so make sure you discover your favourite while you’re in town.
