This weekend just passed saw the annual set up of Liverpool’s Food and Drink Festival in Sefton Park.
This festival is one of the highlights of my year as it showcases the biggest and best restaurants and bars in Merseyside.
Unfortunately I was unable to attend this year due to work commitments so instead I’m going to give you a selection of my favourite eateries in this wonderful city.
This beautiful converted church which has even been graced by Mother Theresa’s presence, has a plethora of character which is evident as soon as you walk through the door. It serves great food, excellent cocktails and shows off samba dancers on the weekends which will encourage anyone to take up zumba! If all of this isn’t enough, why not listen to the gospel choir sing while you enjoy a choice of Sunday roasts?
This award winning eatery sources local ingredients and produce and cooks everything on site. The menu changes regularly depending on what’s in season. I was lucky enough to be taken here for my birthday this year and after 25 years on this earth it is by far one of the best meals I have ever had. The flavours of the food and the atmosphere inside compliment each other so well that you’ll never want to leave. Is it my birthday again yet?
Bistro Jacques is a little French (if you hadn’t already guessed) place in the heart of the Georgian quarter. It was one of the first places I went to after moving here for university. It is the definition of cheap and cheerful with lots of offers like their Lunch Rapide, early bird menu and student evenings. They must be doing something right as they have two more locations in the city centre too! Bon apetit…
