As the sun beat down on Bold Street, my sister and I were a little tired and hunting for somewhere to sit down. We were both hungry, plus my stepmum would be joining us shortly. My sister is a vegetarian, so I suppose the pressure was on me to find somewhere offering delicious food we could all enjoy. I had a few places in mind, I worked in Liverpool last year as a Barista, so I got to sample a few brilliant places to eat. I also know a few places with great reputations and a couple of restaurants friends have recommended.
The restaurant is clean, simple and comfortable. The settings are really fitting and I could have been sat in a bazaar in Beirut for all I knew. Liverpool is a multicultural city and people from all walks of life were enjoying Bakchich. We were greeted by a really enthusiastic waiter, he was oozing with passion for the food and he never stopped smiling whilst explaining the menu. I ordered a couple of refreshing drinks called Roomana, a cordial made with pomegranate and orange blossom. This helped us pass the time whilst we waited for the stepmother, don't worry, she's not one of those wicked ones like in the movies.
Wow! The falafel was fantastic, crispy on the outside and moist on the inside, it was packed full of flavour and every bite was a dream. The mixed meats of the shawarma were seasoned beautifully and the condiments accompanied the food perfectly. The salads and hommos were so tasty and refreshing, especially the crisp tabbouleh salad. The food was a pleasure to eat and I actually didn't want the experience to end.
