I know, I know, I hate when Christmas music is played too early and you can’t escape it’s stupidly infectious charms but, like, THIS ARIANA GRANDE COVER PEOPLE.
I love Christmas music. All year round.
Me right now because I’ve got two whole weeks off work and I’m going to Americaaaa
After a hard day of training in Liverpool today I felt I’d earned my tea at Camp & Furnace so I indulged in the ‘dirty’ burger with chips, pickle and ginger beer to wash it all down. Safe to say I am now stuffed and extremely satisfied. Love the ambience at C&F but this is the first time I’ve properly tried the food and I was impressed. Now I’m seriously looking forward to trying out one of their food slam fridays.
Bold St Coffee liked my post yesterday ^_^
Ok so this isn’t strictly speaking a restaurant review but I just had the sandwich of my life and I had to tell someone. I go to Bold Street Coffee a lot for my caffeine dose (which from them is of higher quality than your average) but I hadn’t ever bothered with the food. That’s changed. Grabbed a sandwich today as I was on my way to work, the one I chose had brie, walnuts, grapes, onion chutney and rocket. All the ingrediants, including the bread, were fresh and delicious and balanced perfectly so nothing was drowned out. I know its silly to get excited about a butty but this was seriously good and has set me up for the long shift ahead. I already loved this place but this has further cemented it. Much love Bold St Coffee.
Had our second outing to Hub Alehouse & Kitchen on the corner of Hanover St and Duke last night and it cemented my good opinion of the place after first going for my Birthday a couple of months ago. The food is really good, the swinging kebabs a particular favourite and it has a nice buzzy atmosphere, especially on a Saturday night. Highly recommended. Next time we’re going to go between 5 and 6.30 for cocktail happy hour.
Tried another in the long (and seemingly endlessly expanding) list of New York-esque eating establishments in Liverpool. This time it’s the turn of East Village Arts Club (the recently rebranded food/drink/club/gig venue of former Masque glory). I had the po boy, my friend had the philly steak and aside from a distinct lack of proper cider on offer, we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. So much so we even plumped for dessert (the cheesecake was beautifully presented and the Eton mess delicious). This place has a really nice relaxed and artsy atmosphere, especially when you can hear the band soundchecking upstairs. The food is tasty and unfussy. I won’t be at all surprised to see this place become a longstanding favourite.
Charing Cross tube. It hurts your brain after a while
What’s interesting about this gif is that you can convince yourself that the train is moving both ways.
Tried out the new Byron Hamburgers in Liverpool One last night. You can tell all the staff are new, they’re all so cheerful and enthusiastic. The building isn’t new though, despite the industrial look they’re going for inside. As for the food, well their thing is to just do burgers and to do them well, and they seem to succeed in this mission more or less. All in all I liked the place but with a lot of choices in the city this would not be my top pick for a burger, I’d sooner return to NoLIta Cantina or Free State Kitchen for my fix of Americana.
