EAT LIVERPOOL

A Liverpool-Based Food Blog

What's going to be on the menu at Pins?

Aiming to launch in mid-December, Pins is set to be Liverpool's newest entertainment hub. Featuring bowling lanes (obviously) as well as beer pong, table tennis and shuffleboard, the lads behind it aim to bring 'competitive socialising' to all three floors of their converted Duke Street giant.

Six by Nico

It makes my heart all warm and fuzzy inside when big names in the restaurant world choose to open in Liverpool. Not that I don't want London, Birmingham or the South to miss out, but it's nice to know that the big restaurateurs consider us a serious player. Last year we got Masterchef: The Professionals winner Anton Piotrowski's restaurant Roski on Hope Street,  Pilgrim opened their flagship restaurant at Duke Street Market, El Gato Negro opened up their second home in Exchange Flags and now we've been blessed with the latest instalment of Six By Nico.

Smoke & Dough

There's one unit at the end of the Liverpool One restaurant strip that has been sitting empty for a suspiciously long time now. It's former occupant Red Hot World Buffet was, let's face it, pretty damn awful and for a long time it's remained empty despite the rest of the strip absolutely booming.

What's New, Liverpool? (Autumn Edition)

I'm well aware that most of you reading this won't have even realised I'd gone quiet but with my last post published way back in sunny August (!), this has probably been my longest break in posting on this site since I started it. With that said, i'm here, i'm back...ish and loads and loads of fun stuff has happened in the Liverpool food and drink scene over the past few months that I need to fill you in on.

So...what's been happening?


The Royal Albert Dock held it's first Feast Festival
I'm definitely taking the piss a bit with the lateness on this one since this was actually at the start of September (cue face-palm emoji), but it's still definitely worth bringing to your attention since a little birdie tells me this will likely be an annual event. With pop-up bars, music, a floating chef demo tent and cocktails it's all the fun of the old Liverpool Food Fest relocated to the most gorgeous of settings. Keep your eyes peeled for other events at the docks since I've heard they've got big plans for 2020.

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.
