Let's talk chicken.
After a busy (read:mental) day in work I found myself wandering down Bold Street, delirious and hungry, in search of food. Koop had already been recommended to me a number of times so when I caught sight of the neon sign above the door I knew that was where I had to eat.
Stepping inside, the restaurant decor was exactly what I was hoping for. Graffiti walls, tin cutlery holders and big lights- just the ticket for shameless Friday night feasting. Initially it was very quiet- there audio kept going on and off leaving us briefly in an awkward silence perusing the menu. However, this was soon rectified and we enjoyed the rest of our meal listening to the dulcet tones of Lana del Ray.
The menu is a milkshake-lover's heaven but I like to convince myself I'm being healthy before I stuff my face so we ordered a couple'a cokes and got down to ordering the good stuff.
Halloumi Nuggets. Deep fried, crunchy, melty and served with a sweet chilli dip. Exactly as good as you'd expect deep fried cheese to be.
2 Types of Fries- Garlic and Parmesan and Sweet Potato (see? healthy!) The G&P fries were a bit much for me but my date devoured them.
We continued the 'two-by-two' theme and also ordered 2 types of wings for good measure.
'Oriental Express'- Coated in a sticky hoisin glaze and sprinkled with sesame seeds and the classic Salt and Pepper.
We were absolute balloons by the end of the meal and our bill was easily less than £30! Overall some good, cheap, tasty bites-perfect hangover/Friday night food in my opinion.
You can also get Koop on Aigburth Road or have them deliver it to your bed on Deliveroo!
