Food from across the world in Liverpool

By hannahk 15 Aug 2023

We asked our international residents "Where do you  recommend to eat in Liverpool if you want a taste of home?"...

It's safe to say that we are not short of recommendations. So whether you're looking for a reminder of home or whether you want to try cuisines from across the world, you're in the right place!
