5 famous dishes in Liverpool that you need to try


By Chris Grundy

Just like our music and arts scene, the Liverpool food scene has become a force to be reckoned with in recent years.

So much so that the places themselves have not only become famous, but the delicious dishes they serve up have too. Here are Liverpool’s famous food dishes that you must try… because if you haven’t already… where have you been? 

Mowgli – Chat Bombs

This place is all about how Indians eat at home and on their streets. Their Yoghurt Chat Bombs are the heart of Mowgli. Crisp bread puffs filled with chickpeas, spiced yoghurt, tamarind & coriander. Do not miss out on these next time you order.

The Maray story began in the summer of 2014, inspired by their experiences in vibrant district of Le Marais, Paris. They serve food inspired by the flavours of the Middle East alongside incredible wine and bold, delicious cocktails. When you think of Maray you think of their Disco Cauliflower, it comes topped with chermoula, harissa, tahini, yoghurt, pomegranate, almonds, and fresh herbs.

Free State Kitchen serves a contemporary twist on American classics, with quality, locally sourced produce at the heart of our menu. They’ve won multiple awards, especially for their Double French Onion Burger. A double beef burger with; garlic butter, Swiss cheese, caramelised onions, and dijon mustard mayo. Its flavour packs a serious punch, so we are not surprised that the creation celebrated its 9th birthday this year.

After years of cooking Middle Eastern-inspired food at home, owner Tim decided to give it a go on the street food circuits. Hafla Hafla means “party party” in Arabic, and he wanted his food to be all about fun. That certainly describes their Halloumi Fries – They come with various topping, but the Salt & Pepper variation is their most sold item at the Baltic Market.

Maggie May’s is a family owned cafe based on Bold Street. It is claimed, by some, that they serve up the best Scouse in the city, and it is certainly a big reason why Maggie’s is so famous. The stew – with its chunky meat, potatoes, carrots, and onion –  is served with crusty bread, beetroot and red cabbage… but here’s the question… do you put brown sauce on yours or not?

You can find Maggie Mays at 90 Bold Street, Liverpool.
