A Liverpool-Based Food Blog

Not Going Home Thursday

When Danielle from Neighbourhood got in touch to see if me and some of my girlfriends wanted to come down for some drinks I was, I'll be honest, slightly wary. In my opinion NBHD is for gorgeous young gals who take a bangin' Insta mirror selfie, and sadly...that ain't me. However, with the promise of food and bottomless drinks on offer and some old school pals in Liverpool on that exact night (co-incidence or fate?) we decided to give it a shot and see what the craic was like at one of Castle Street's busiest bars.


Albert's Schenke in the Haus

Oh Ja! Albert's Shenke, the hotly anticipated younger brother to popular Manchester hang out Albert's Shloss, have finally arrived, bringing with them their own unique brand of Bavarian chaos, stein-sized pints and Alpine-themed snacks to Liverpool.


A Look Inside 200 Degrees Coffee

Nottingham-born roastery and coffee shop 200 Degrees have just opened their latest venue and it's right here in Liverpool.


Dinner at 109 Allerton

Since March of this year, pretty pink cafe 109 Allerton has been owned and run by head chef Ray Taylor, who was inspired to open a more health-conscious restaurant in Liverpool after working and travelling in sunny Australia.


The Liverpool Pizza A-Z

After the er.. 'roaring success' that was The Liverpool Burger A-Z, I've decided to continue this series of unnecessary alphabetised food lists almost a year later with a comprehensive list of everywhere decent to get a pizza.

Liverpool is bursting at the seams with the stuff at the minute and I, for one, certainly ain't complaining. From classic Italian to New York Style, the traditional to the ridiculous, monstrous sized slices and mini pizzettes we've got it all and I've (just about) found a pizza place for every letter of the whole goddam' alphabet. 

You are welcome.


East River

It's finally starting to look like summer here in the South of the city and what better way to spend it than in Allerton Road's very own homage to New York dining: East River.


Pilgrim @ Duke Street Market

Over the past couple of years food markets have been sprouting up across Liverpool faster than you can say 'ooh your buzzer's going!' and they've so far been an unquestionable success. If you fancy reading about why I think they're such a hit, I've written an article about it here. Now, just as we head into the depths of the summer, Liverpool have been hashtag blessed with another: this time in the form of the fabulous Duke Street Market.


Yard and Coop Brunch Menu

I've got 4 words for you and I think you're gonna like them: fried chicken croissant taco.

Got your head around that yet? You did read it right. A fried chicken croissant taco. Also known as a ‘tacro’. 
There’s only one place in Liverpool that would dream up (and actually have the balls to sell) such a creation and that’s Hanover Street’s very own Yard and Coop.


Aether x Yu Donut

Despite there being a specific tab for drinks related things up there somewhere in my menu bar, it’s probably the one tab and area of my blog that gets neglected the most. That’s because I’m here for the food y'know and regardless how much fun I'm having in bar, I’mma have to get myself some snacks soon after.



Whilst I can't help but find it mildly annoying that Liverpool always seem to get all the cool chains some time after London, Leeds and Manchester, in the case of our latest restaurant signing it was definitely worth the wait. Bundobust is a Leeds-born phenomenon that gained an equally fond reception when they opened their doors in Manchester and now, finally, we have one of our very own.


Free State Kitchen

The funny thing about running this blog is that, despite constantly reviewing new places, new menus and restaurants I've never been to before, I very rarely get the chance to sit down and write about my actual all-time favourites. The places I go to time and time again seem to unfairly slip out of the loop in favour of all the 'new' content and I really need to start making a more conscious effort to mention them more frequently.


A Big Boss Brekkie for The Whitechapel Centre

The 17th-23rd June this year is a pretty special week as it's now officially 'Big Boss Brekkie' week. Personally, I like to indulge in big boss breakfast as much as I can, but this week it's particularly important as it's a fundraising week for

The Whitechapel Centre is the leading homelessness and housing charity for the Liverpool region. They work with people who are sleeping rough, living in hostels or struggling to find a place to live and they provide support and advice to those who are struggling with independent living.

Last year The Whitechapel Centre served over 25,000 hot breakfasts to their service users and they now need support to help this incredible work continue.For the last three years they have been doing an event called Big Boss Brekkie Week (think of it like an AmnesTea Party or Macmillan Coffee morning, except it’s breakfast!) The point of the event is to raise awareness while also raising funds for their life-saving work to continue.

 They want this year to be bigger, better, and more boss than ever! To do this they need our help and it couldn't be easier. Here's what you can do:

1. Post about the Big Boss Brekkie to raise awareness of the event and encourage people to take part and raise money for the Whitechapel Centre.

2. Have your own Big Boss Brekkie with friends, family or work colleagues.

3. Attend a Big Boss Brekkie at one of the fab cafes and restaurants across the city that are taking part this year. So far the places taking part are:

- Siren on Monday 27th- Friday 21st June
-St Paul's Social on Tuesday 18th June
-Love Thy Neighbour on Sunday 23rd June
-Bean There all week from Monday 17th June- Sunday 23rd June

If any more jump on I'll keep you updated and you can find out more about the incredible work the Whitechapel Centre do on their website here.

Have fun!
