We all know northern fish and chips is better than what you can get in the south, but this effort really does need sampling ASAP when you’re next knocking around Liverpool One. The Bridewell’s also a former prison, which is a rather unique talking point on top of the great food.

Any pizza from TriBeCa.

TriBeCa is renowned for serving great pizzas, so the only question that remains is which topping will you choose? And if you really can’t decide, you can go half-and-half.

(N.B. They’re all amazing.)

The Triple Nom burger from Almost Famous.

TheTriple Nom (double cheeseburgers, pulled pork, coleslaw, redneck BBQ sauce) is to die for. Well, not literally, but it’s pretty darn nice.

Pan Asian cuisine at Matou.

Amazing lunch with the girls 😍💜

Only opened since 2010 and located on Liverpool’s scenic waterfront, the views from the restaurant are especially pleasant, as are the many meals on offer.

Top notch tuna at Etsu.

Japanese cuisine at its best; Etsu is known for its authentic food and great service.

Soul Cafe for a toastie and milkshake brunch.

Just a few minutes down the road from Liverpool’s Central Station, Soul Cafe offers light, tasty treats to keep you going during an afternoon’s shopping spree.

Big Bowl Noodle for Chinese ribs.

Situated on Berry Street, this gem offers lots of tasty Chinese rice and noodle dishes at reasonable prices. You won’t leave feeling hungry, trust me.

Indian at Yukti.

Traditional Sunday Lunch……. Bloody awesome it was too!!!

Just outside of the city centre, Yuki’s a really warm and inviting place, with top-quality Indian food. It’s difficult to pick out one dish; they’re all amazing.

Non-meat options are great, especially with the tasty vegan and veggie options here, such as eggs, beans, sausages (veggie, obviously), mushrooms, and toast. Boom.

Get your tapas on at Neon Jamon.

Rated the best restaurant in Liverpool on Trip Advisor, the authentic taste of Spain and range on its menu is what attracts its Scouse customers here again and again.

Soup and a sandwich at Lox and Caper.

There’s nothing like a bit of comfort food, and Lox and Caper is slap bang in the city centre for your convenience.

The street food at Mowgli.

With both meat and veggie options available, Mowgli Streetfood provides customers with an alternative to a standard Indian restaurant: think Indian taps (in tiffin boxes) serving modest portions that allow you to sample an array of dishes and flavours.

Afternoon tea at the Moon and Pea.

This is particularly delightful, and as you can see, they really don’t hold back on portion sizes.

The Lebanese delights of Bakchich.

There’s a brilliant selection, with The Chicken Sharwama Platte is just one of the highlights of visiting Bakchich, in what is an intimate, bustling dining space. Good news is they’ll happily doggy bag up the giant helpings for you to enjoy later.

Full-on plates of meat at Slim’s Pork Chop Express.

Who doesn’t love a big plate of meat? That’s what this place is known for, so you’re in luck. It’s a small, intimate venue and presented a little bit differently to your average BBQ joint.

Moose Coffee’s Eggs Benedict… with a twist.

It may be a tiny and often busy place to eat (meaning sometimes you’re asked to wait outside ahead of being seated), but the food, including the above, is rather yummy indeed.

A roast at The Fat Budgie.

Near Moorfields station, The Fat Budgie boasts a stellar roast dinner in a quaint place that’ll perfectly cook your beef as part of its small but varied menu.
