At Property Lane we love good food! We are so fortunate in Liverpool that we have some of the best places to eat in the UK right on our doorstep. So we’ve picked what we think are 10 of the coolest restaurants in the city! So whether you’re a born and bred Liverpudlian or just visiting for the weekend we think these are a few places you’ll absolutely love.
Almost Famous, 11-13 Parr St, L1 4JN
Arguably the best burgers in town, but don’t take our word for it. At one time this turn-up-and-dine eatery was only open on select days but the good news is it now serves the juiciest meat patties all week long. It also caters especially for local carnivores with the This Is Liverpool stack, a double cheeseburger with chicken and chips, chip shop curry sauce and “wonder onions”…
Oh Me Oh My, West Africa House, 25 Water St, L2 0RG
While its grand tea house interior (the venue is built inside a former bank – though it shouldn’t do too much damage to your own account) is pleasantly airy, it’s the exclusive rooftop you’ll be heading to for a relaxing daytime feed while taking in the best view of the city’s Grade I listed Royal Liver Building. While it’s generally a daytime venue, there are “secret sessions” on evenings and weekends, revealed only on their website.
Yukti, 393 Prescot Rd, L13 3BS
When you visit Yukti you aren’t just going to experience the authentic South Asian cuisine – you’re there to get a sense of the skill and artistry that goes into cooking. Situated just outside of the city centre – meaning a short taxi ride is probably on the cards – lies one of the city’s finest Indian restaurants. With moderate yet beautifully presented portions, the ambience is perfect if you’re heading out to celebrate in a sizeable crowd. They’ve also expanded into another location on Renshaw Street, focusing on street food.
Lucha Libre, 96 Wood St, L1 4DQ
The tastiest Mexican (NOT, as they go to great pains to point out Tex-Mex) street food in the most convenient of locations, Lucha Libre’s vibrant and chilled out premises is literally a stone’s throw from Liverpool’s FACT, so is perfectly situated for a pre or post cinema trip. Quesadillas, tacos and burritos abound, without a donkey or sombrero in sight.
Mowgli, 69 Bold St, L1 4EZ
Asian street food in its simplest, tastiest form, Mowgli was founded in 2014 by Nisha Katona and prides itself on healthy, vegan dishes. It’s a place that’s convenient to nip into for on-the-move food, with a minimalist but friendly interior offering visitors an appropriate place to indulge on as little or as much as required.
Casa Italia, 36-40 Stanley St, Liverpool L1 6AL
If you’re after a truly unique Italian experience, this quaint family-owned dining room feels like something straight from the Godfather era. Established by the magnificently-moustachioed Cavaliere Mario Campolucci-Bordi over 40 years ago, it’s one of the city’s longest serving eateries and, in addition to its freshly prepared, authentic taste of Italy, the likes of Paul McCartney, Kylie, and Robbie Williams have popped in to sample.
Panoramic 34, West Tower, Brook Street, L3 9PJ
Few places in Liverpool offer such stunning views as you dine, which is why fancy grub combined with seriously stunning cityscape views make this one of the city’s great eating experiences. While fresh fish is perfect for an evening visit, afternoon tea is one of the restaurant’s most popular attractions. Y’know, in case your mum’s in town.
Slim’s Pork Chop Express, 85 Seel St, L1 4BB
There are restaurants with talking points and then restaurants themed around Big Trouble in Little China. Slim’s Pork Chop Express, named after the freight-liner in the 1986 cult classic and festooned with Drew Struzan artwork, is decidedly the latter. Sat adjacent to hot dog palace Salt Dog Slim’s on the increasingly trendy Seel Street, this two-tier smokehouse BBQ joint is all about the meat. Word to the wise if ordering for two: opt for a tray, which includes four pieces of Kornflake Chicken, half a rack of Baby Backs, Coach Bombay fries, BBQ corn, pickle slaw and sweet potato bread. It won’t help you achieve the rock hard abs of eighties Kurt Russell but it will hit the spot.
