A Liverpool-Based Food Blog

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.

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!



Sunday Lunch at the Maritime Dining Rooms

If you go down to the Liverpool Maritime Museum today you're in for a rather lovely surprise. 


Small Plates at Siren

Head up to the top end of town, just past the Chinese arch, a little further up than the Baltic and you may just come across Siren. It's a stunning, circular building with floor to ceiling glass and walls of twinkling fairy lights and, up until recently, I was under the impression it was purely an events space.


Lane 7 Bowling

There's a whole load of glorious nostalgia in the sticky carpets, ancient arcades and terrible food at the Hollywood Bowl. I spent many a childhood party there, as well as a fair few of my teenage years when we couldn't get in anywhere in town without ID (still can't to be honest).


Bistro Franc

You may or may not recall in my review of Cote Bistro a few months ago I was lamenting the lack of French restaurants in Liverpool. One of the places that got an honourable mention was Bistro Franc, once a part of the Bistro group it's now completely independent of it's French siblings and is standing alone as it's own beacon of retro French joy on Hanover Street.
