Everything you need to know about food and drink in Liverpool.


Restaurants in a Box PT1- Home by Nico

I'll start this review by saying that when it comees to anything Six by Nico this is not
my first rodeo. The dine at home meal kit from Six by Nico first launched over the summer lockdown and of course I had ample opportunity to try it then. I tried their French meal kit for my lockdown birthday and I even managed to get a quick review of their Italian themed box published on Liverpool Confidential- if you fancy reading that one the link is here

The A-Z Liverpool Gift Guide 2020

It's one thing to have the intention of supporting small businesses at Christmas time but when the festive season rolls around and everything descends into madness it's all too easy to grab the first thing you come across in the Asda, stick a bow on it and call it a day (guilty and not sorry). 


Spooky Season at Spitroast Crosby

There's no denying that I enjoy these autumnal months the best. Aside from living in perpetual darkness, the sight of the leaves crisping up and turning 50 shades of red and then stomping through them like a 4 year old is the ultimate chicken-soup-for-the-soul activity. I like being able to see my own breath when I get up in the mornings. I like being able to wear pyjamas made entirely of fluff and I like lighting enough candles around my bath to look like I'm trying to have a séance with 'the other side'. That's not even to mention the food.

One Day in Liverpool

It's been a quiet few months in Liverpool but as the city slowly starts to wake up from it's Covid-induced slumber it's more important now than ever that we support local businesses and attractions in their first tentative steps back to normality. To help us with this, our very own tourist board Visit Liverpool have launched a new campaign which aims to remind locals how fabulous our city is and get them to fall in love with it all over again through visiting some of our best spots and seeing the city 'like a tourist' might do.


Eat Out to Help Out- Liverpool

Aside from the fact I think whoever named this scheme should be sacked, the #eatouttohelpout campaign (the government's latest recovery incentive) is good excuse to get back out into 'normality' and support your favourite Liverpool restaurants at a discount without you, or the businesses losing out.

The scheme will start from Monday 3rd August until the end of the month and will only run Monday-Wednesday. It gives you 50% off food and soft drinks up to the value of £10 per person, but it doesn't include booze...sorry. Not all restaurants will be taking part so check before you go! There's a comprehensive list on the Gov website but I've cherry picked some of the best here (i.e I've removed all of the subways etc) and I'll update this regularly when I come across any others!

DIY Pizza with Fritto

I'll start with the obvious here: I'm no stranger to a pizza. After a teenage career spinning dough in Dominos, I've since tried my making my own at The Baltic Pizza Co and, more recently, spent a shameful number of hours putting together my A-Z list of Liverpool pizza joints.  

Incidentally, one of the places on that list is Fritto and no it's not under 'F',  it's under 'X'... because, let's face it, the list is a shambles. Usually based at the Kazimier gardens, Fritto are mostly known for their Italian street food including their signature panzerotto- deep-fried calzone pizza. I finally had one of these when I went away last year and it's every bit as filthy & delicious as it looks.


Lockdown with the LIDS

It's been a couple of weeks now since my last post and I hope that life in lockdown is starting to feel a little bit less daunting. One of the things I mentioned was that whilst our indie businesses, bars and restaurants are closed I still wanted to support them if I could providing, of course, that it was safe to do so. With takeaway food still being blessed by the UK Gov and a new system of doorstep deliveries making it entirely contact free, it's been pretty easy to keep on getting good food without having to step foot outside my house.


Liverpool Lockdown- An Update

Christ, what a year this week this has been. Before I get started with what is, I imagine, going to be an absolute essay of a post I want to reiterate this definitely isn’t going to be a ‘woe is me’ type of thing- I'm saying that to you as well as to remind myself since I tend to slip into whining before I've even realised. I’m not great at coping with things at the best of times and with what's going on at the minute my brain feels more like scrambled eggs than a functional, human organ so please forgive me if that's what it sounds like. I've been semi-absent from blogging for a lil' while now so I thought I'd better give you a bit of an update since the world appears to be coming to a stand still right now.

So, what's the plan for Eat Liverpool?

This whole blog came about after a long summer holidays of being restless in my house and, whilst I know it’s just me posting pictures of food on the internet,  it’s honestly done wonders for me and my mental health. It's kept me busy in my downtime, distracted me from stress at work, gave me a new outlet for my writing and pushed me to confront my social anxiety by meeting up with loads of strangers (other bloggers) some of whom I now love to bits and can thankfully call my friends. 


Lu Ban

It's always the case that when you can't find something it's usually in the place you least expect it and in the case of Lu Ban, the new Chinese restaurant fronted by head chef Dave Critchley, that's certainly true. Hiding inconspicuously amongst the red bricks of the old Cains district, Lu Ban is inspired by the traditional, seasonal food of the Tianjin region and is absolutely nothing like your local Chinese.
