Food Review 03: Bakchich

The Food

Described as serving Lebanese Street Food, the menu was mostly what you would find in any Lebanese restaurant. For us, the burgers were what really drew us in. We ordered:

Hummus – the only starter we could manage alongside our meals, this came served with Arabic bread as it usually does. Delicious!

Henna: Veggie Burger – Halloumi, falafel & humus in a brioche bun… literally there’s nothing that could go wrong with this combination. My mouth is watering just thinking about how good it was!

Sana: Lamb Kofta Burger – this was a minced lamb burger, again served in a brioche bun. The lamb was well seasoned and tasted so good! The brioche bun made both burgers even more delicious.

The burgers were served with a generous portion of fries and a lovely, fresh salad. We were also given an array of sauces which included garlic sauce, ketchup, chilli sauce and tahini, all of which were also delicious.

The portion sizes were perfect. The food was fresh, delicious and even better than we expected.

 The Location & Atmosphere

Located on the popular Bold Street in Liverpool City Centre, it was one of the busiest restaurants on the street on Saturday night. However, we didn’t have to wait long for a table so the turnaround was quite fast. The atmosphere was just as you would expect from a street food type place, the décor was understated and in keeping with the theme, and the hustle and bustle made it a lovely place to eat.

 The Service

The service could not be faulted. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive.

 The Price Range

 We found the prices very decent – both meals were £7.95 each, which we thought was reasonable for the portion size and quality of food.

 The Verdict

Henna: I absolutely LOVED the food. I would rarely choose a veggie burger from a menu (even if I was stuck with only veggie options in a non-halal restaurant!) I will definitely go back to try other items from the menu.

Sana: The lamb kofta burger was quite possibly the best burger I’ve had in a long time. I think what made it even better was that it was a delicious break from my typical uni student diet (pasta, noodles etc)! I can’t wait to go back, hopefully soon!
