A city break to Liverpool - the food

If you've read my blog for a while you'll know that I never plan a trip without considering the food! Here are my favourite places to eat in Liverpool if you're visiting for a city break.

My absolute favourite and somewhere i'll definitely eat at again was Bacaro! This is a highly rated restaurant and bar serving small plates that are perfect for sharing. We chose four dishes and two desserts which was just the right amount along with a few drinks. For mains we chose: tomato mozzarella and basil pizzette, slow cooked harissa lamb with tagliatelle pasta & pecorino, fritto misto and buttermilk chicken milanese. My two favourites were the pizza and the lamb pasta - i'd definitely order them both again.

For dessert we had a tiramisu pot and a chocolate orange mousse with meringue, pistachio and yuzu.  I wasn't sure what i'd think of the mousse but I actually loved in more than the tiramisu which was a surprise - I just wish i'd had room to order a bigger selection! After finishing a great meal,  we went for drinks afterwards as Bacaro is in a great location in the centre of the city.

I never go on a city break without trying pizza somewhere so while we were exploring Bold Street we went to Crust. Although not the best pizza I've tried, the menu was huge so i'd probably go back and try something else, particularly as there are five different pizza bases to choose from. There are also pizza wraps, pasta and a selection of desserts as well as traditional pizza so you're guaranteed to find something you'd like!

Our final restaurant was Mowgli, which had the most amazing interior and serves Indian Street Food with a twist. It was a bit dark in there which is why my photo is terrible but overall we enjoyed a unique take on Indian food. Our choices included Bunny Chow - a chicken and potato curry served inside a bread loaf (!), Butter Chicken and Mowgli Chip Butty - a roti wrap with turmeric fries. The only disappointment was having to send back one of the dishes as it was cold, and the service which felt a little rushed, but that wouldn't put me off trying Mowgli again.
