Liverpool’s food scene has really gone up a gear over the past four or five years and the variety and standard has raised for all to see. Now as we head into summer there’s a brand new food hall on the block, Renshaw Street Food Market, located close to the Berry Street, Bold Street and Leece Street junction.
The street food market is testing a soft opening from June 29, from 11am until midnight, and has a mix of world flavours with Italian, Thai, Chinese and Turkish cuisines to name but a few, as well as Jidong Bubble Tea. The new foodie haven on Renshaw Street contains eleven different food units for customers to sample from alongside a licensed bar.
The neon lights shining everywhere makes you feel like you are having a holiday in an Asian metropolitan. The food market introduces leading international brands into Liverpool, which includes Dagu Rice Noodle (which has 300 restaurants in China, USA, New Zealand and Dubai), Nduo Sushi (with over 3,000 shops in China, South East Asia and Australia) and Zhengxin Fried Chicken (boasting over 20,000 shops around the world).
Other food units inside the street food market include Mong Kok serving dim sum and Cantonese food, Turkish street food vendors Amara, artisan cakes and gelato from Antonietta, and Mexican street food by BAJA. Plus, you’ll also find Rice and Noodle Kitchen serving the finest flavours from Chinese, Korean and Japanese cuisine, PadThai serving authentic Thai street food and Italian fish bar Pescato.
Renshaw Street Market proprietor, and Jidong Bubble Tea entrepreneur, Xiaoyu Zhou, known as Joe to his friends and customers, said: “We are excited to be launching Renshaw Street Food Market this month after a long fit out of the premises and waiting on Covid restrictions to be finally all dropped levels.
“We feel that the balance of cuisines on offer will be hugely popular with local clients and visiting tourists alike, who love to experiment and try out every type of cuisine. Now they will get the chance to sample any dish they choose from our vendors, which is wonderful for casual diners.”
Joe continued: “Although the Renshaw Street Food Market has an Asian theme running through its core there are also Mediterranean and Middle Eastern vendors. So whether it’s a Chinese bubble tea or a quick pasta lunch, there are options to suit everyone.”
