Maray - Liverpool - new restaurant
« on: June 14, 2014, 03:50:15 pm »
This place opened last week to a couple of good reviews, so a friend & I decided to visit.

It's at the top end of Bold Street (next to Bold St Coffee)

A long shared central table, with more eating space provided by a counter around the wall with high stools.    We were shown to a smaller table at the back.  We perused the small menu & ordered a bottle of chardonnay & the felafel sharing platter.

Before the food arrived an apologetic waitress said that the table had been reserved for a group & asked us to move to the main table.   We did this with a few grumbles.

Then the food arrived.

 

Warm bread, lovely tabouleh, olives, capers, sun dried tomatoes & 3 little bowls with some of the best dips I've tasted.  The houmous & baba ghanoush were lovely, but the green chilli dip was out of this world.  I asked if I could buy some to take home, sadly not (yet).

Next up was spiced chicken with green lentils & lamb with spinach & tumeric potatoes. Both really nice.  Our wine glasses were constantly topped up as well, to make up for moving us  :)

Grilled halloumi with roast veg & couscous was next, as was a dish of calimari with a chilli mayo ,  this was gorgeous, but a tad too warm, even for me!

Full of good food, we paid, tipped & left.   I think I'll visit again though, it's on my way home from work!

£50 for the 2 of us,  I think we'd have bought another bottle of wine if we hadn't got the free refills though.

After a crap day at work on Wednesday I wanted to cheer myself up, so I popped in  here again, before "Henry IV pt 2" at FACT (live broadcast from Stratford) .

Moar calimari with chilli mayo and a lovely thing of roast aubergine, parmesan & tomato risotto. The waitress said this was her favourite, can't blame her  :P

Edit - 04/10/14   -  This place is thriving,  every time I walk past it's busy.  Nice to see a local business doing so well.

They are now opening their 3rd restaurant (Albert Dock).


I visited tonight for the first time since 2014.   The felafel sharing platter was definitely not as good as earlier visits More felafels, but fewer dips.  We also ordered Scallops. Hake, Lamb Shwarma & Buttermilk Chicken.  All were delicious, the Hake was a bit late so they took it off the bill.  £57 for 2 including a drinkable bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.


Tuesday night at 19;30 & people were eating standing at the bar.
