We tried out Renshaw Street Food Market and this is what we thought

If you’ve travelled to the Far East and love the street food, then you have to try out Renshaw Street Food Market.
If you haven’t travelled to the Far East but still love street food, then you still have to try out Renshaw Street Food Market. The newest addition to Liverpool’s food market offering is certainly a different but successful take on the concept.
From the neon signs, to the open kitchen cooking with numerous ingredients on show, it’s an authentic eating experience that transports you to the streets and shopping centres of Bangkok and Hong Kong. Well, in our dreams anyway.
This style of eating is fun, easy, and perfect for a quick meal with friends.beer and some hot and spicy food.We weren’t disappointed.
After grabbing bottles of lager and a couple of pints of draft from the bar in the corner, we wandered round the various outlets to make our choice.
PadThai Thai Street Food proved a popular option, with their choice of soup base plus an added six ingredients from the menu of meat, fish and vegetables. It was delicious – but just a word of warning, and not a complaint – extra spicy really does mean extra spicy and make sure you’re hungry as the bowls are massive.
The Rice and Noodle Kitchen was also a big hit with our group. The vermicelli was delicious, and we can highly recommend the salt and pepper chips on the side. The portions were also generous, easily enough for two.
And if Thai and Chinese food isn’t your bag, don’t worry. There are Turkish, fish and Mexican outlets and the chilli beef tacos from Baja were given a solid eight out of ten.
If you’ve got room for more, there are an array of desserts on offer from Antonietta Dolce and Gelato but none of us could manage a pudding, such were the portions of the main course. Maybe we will just call in for a piece of cheesecake and a coffee next time, or something from Jidong Bubble Tea.
After an hour we’d had brilliant food, a couple of drinks and a good chat in a busy but laid-back space. Perfect for us to move on for the rest of our evening.
The food was also very good value, with most meals averaging around £8-£12, and great quality as well as generous portions.
We will certainly be back.
