15 Places Everyone Must Eat In Liverpool

And not a bowl of Scouse in sight.

Posted on


TOKYOU is fast food Asian style at affordable prices (a meal and a drink is usually under a tenner). Any noodle-based dishes get two thumbs up, making it the perfect place for a takeaway or quick stop for a bite to eat.

2. Lucha Libre

Offering an array of Mexican food, the Breakfast Street Food Trays that're served until 4pm are an absolute treat. And at just across the road from FACT Cinema, it's handily located before heading to a film.

Try the MxMuffin (griddled egg, Pilbil, jalapeños, house chilli sauce & molten cheese) for a memorable brunch.

3. American Pizza Slice

Whether you're planning to pig out or just grab a slice, this place is perfect. You can also get a different topping on each individual slice, if you wish. (Yes, you read that right.)

4. Can Cook Studio.

On the menu today - middleeastern chicken,pork belly&falafel with herby salad and flatbread #streetfood #foodpoverty

Not only does the Can Cook van offer healthy and alternative street food, but each month organises a #shareyourlunch initiative whereby they provide a meal for a less fortunate member of the community when you buy one yourself.

5. Mowgli

The perfect walk-in destination for an alternative Indian meal; a popular (and delicious) choice is the tiffin boxes at only £12 a pop, which consist of a 4-tier random selection by the Chef that day.

6. Bakchich Lebanese Street Food

The vegetarian and vegan options at Lebanese eatery Bakchich are as colourful as they are tasty. Some say skip the starters and head for the mains, but if you do that then you miss out on the exquisite Sawda Djej (chicken liver).

7. Camp and Furnace

Tomoz Food Slam - Beef / Bean Chilli (v) + crispy Sea Bass, + slaws n sauces, from crisp & cool to 'oh my god' hot

With such a vast selection, you'll often be stuck for choice. There's soft tacos, as well as freshly made, stone-baked pizzas, which are highly sought after. Friday Food Slam blends street food trader with the venue's own menu, mixed with entertaining DJ sets.

8. Yardbird

Speak to anyone who's visited Yardbird (just on the corner of Berry Street) and they'll rave about the fried chicken, but pretty much anything on their Southern-inspired US menu comes highly recommended.

9. Nolita Cantina

There's American street food and then there's this. Not only do they do those beauties in abundance, but also offer bottomless fries and a sandwich on their lunch menu and it's only £6. BUT SERIOUSLY, JUST LOOK AT THOSE CORNDOGS.

10. Free State Kitchen

Weinerdogs and cake – what more could anyone want? Free State Kitchen serves American classics with a contemporary twist – the Double French Onion Burger (double patty with garlic butter, caramelised onions, Dijon mustard mayo and Swiss cheese) is worth checking out.

11. Evil Eye - Beer and Burrito Shack

You basically build your own burrito here. First chose your main – chicken, steak, BBQ, or veggie (but Bourbon BBQ Pulled Pork is a winner), then your rice, your veg (Sexy Garlic and Herb Mushrooms offers something different), your salsa, followed by beans and any extras (Bacon Bits are a must). Then you've just got to try and devour the thing.

12. Moose Coffee

Dale Street is home to Moose Coffee, the ideal location to stop for a nibble or to munch on the go. If you leave without sampling the Sugar Ray bagel (slow cooked salt beef brisket in special Moose recipe, griddled bacon, corned beef, mustard mayo, tomato, pickle and melted Swiss cheese), then you're doing something wrong.

13. Rojo Pinchos

Spanish street food at its finest, Rojo's is the city's first pinchos bar. FYI, a pincho's defined as a small, Spanish bar snack – and this place has them aplenty.

They don't have a set menu, meaning they'll offer something new and different each time you visit.

14. Soul Café

Located conveniently in the city centre's shopping district, Soul Ca´'s a chilled out option for lunch and great for a pit stop.

Sandwiches, toasties, bagels, and paninis aside; the pancakes are where it's at.

15. Maray

Maray is a cool place to just hang out. Their food is designed with a strong emphasis on sharing, and comprises of small plates loosely inspired by Middle-Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine.
