Liverpool is known around the world for many reasons – music, maritime ventures, Beatlemania, football and of course a buzzing culinary scene. Liverpool restaurants are some of the best in the world and are really coming into their own of late, especially with the revamp of the district of Ropewalks. Originally a rope-making district for the sailing ships, the area now boasts a number of trendy Liverpool restaurants, chic and stylish bars and cafes brimming with high quality food and drinks. Liverpool restaurants and cuisine are wonderfully varied, from upmarket fine dining restaurants to independent bohemian bistros and all the classic high street spots, with cuisines ranging from traditional British to food from all over the globe. Liverpool restaurants also have a strong rep when it comes to sourcing local produce from the surrounding regions, as it’s of extremely high quality. The local beer and gin are also must-trys when dining or drinking in one of the many brilliant Liverpool restaurants dotted around the city.
Liverpudlians have long been known as scousers due largely to their dialect that’s known around the world. What many aren’t aware of, however, is that the name of the dialect is believed by some to have stemmed from the name of a dreamy, utterly warming local dish. Scouse, the dish, is a hearty meat stew, usually made with mutton or beef as well as thick cut vegetables and it’s often accompanied by pickled beetroot and a slice of bread. There are a few tales as to how this dish came to Liverpool but the most common story is that Norwegian sailors and seamen introduced the dish, which became a staple meal for the poorer people usually working on the docks. Hence, the nickname of the dialect was given to those who ate the dish. Today, the tradition of scouse is well and truly alive in Liverpool restaurants, with many local eateries revamping it with their own flare and touch. There are quite a few spots around, including two Liverpool restaurants – Ma Egerton’s and Ma Boyle’s – that are both steeped in history and serve cracking bowls of the good stuff. So, why not book a table with Quandoo and discover what Liverpool restaurants are doing with this historic dish?
