Around The World, Liverpool | review

Earlier this week, I organised for a bunch of local bloggers to attend a menu tasting event at Around The World, which is part of the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex in Liverpool One - we got together to see what food was on offer, and just had an absolute ball.

The bar/restaurant itself has such a chilled out vibe, with sports on TV and various seating areas as well as a DJ when it gets a bit later. The bar has a huge variety of drinks on offer, including Fruli strawberry beer which is a favourite of mine all the way from Belgium. But mostly I'm here to tell you about the food, so here we go...

Around The World lunch menu

Around The World has a lunch menu that offers decent portion sizes at affordable prices, so it's perfect for your lunch break if you're in the area. I opted for the chicken katsu curry, which happened to be my first ever katsu, and it was so nice. I thought the chicken was really tender, and the rice was done properly, and the sauce was good - there was plenty of veggies chucked in too. Obviously I can't compare it to any other katsu curries, but I'd definitely eat this one again! At £6, I thought it was spot on. There's loads of other options on the lunch menu, too, including sandwiches, pasta and fish & chips.

Around The World tapas deal

They also offer a hump day tapas deal every Wednesday - a bottle of wine (or prosecco) and two tapas dishes for £14.95 which I reckon is a decent price. There are six different tapas dishes to choose from, and I went for baked hummus and patatas bravas which were both amazing. The potatoes were hot and soft and although there was a bit too much sauce for me personally, if you're into that then you'll love it even more than I did. The star of the show, of the whole night for me, was the baked hummus - I never want to eat hummus again unless it's baked, I swear. It comes with tortilla chips and it's hot and has kind of a hard surface that you break through and honestly, it has changed my life.

If you're looking for somewhere to get a nice affordable lunch in Liverpool, Around The World is definitely somewhere to consider - huge thanks to them for having us in for the night, we really enjoyed it and I'll certainly be back!
