If you happen to be visiting Liverpool then I highly recommend lunch at Mowgli on Bold Street. Don’t walk inside expecting your usually curry house. Oh no, this is more authentic and very much focused on Indian home cooking.
We arrived early for lunch and atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff were friendly and helpful. Even by the time we’d finished and the restaurant had got much busier the mood was still calm and relaxed.
Between us we ordered the Gunpowder Chicken, House Lamb Curry, Temple Dahl and Fenugreek Kissed Fries. It was all delicious.
The crispy bits of gunpowder chicken are made with a chickpea batter. They have a good spicy kick to them and were my personal favourite. Phil really enjoyed the lamb curry because the meat was so soft, delicate and packed full of spices. We both couldn’t get enough of the Temple Dahl and the Fenugreek Kissed Fries were a real treat. Little cubes of potato with fenugreek, turmeric and topped with Mowgli masala.
Next time I visit I’d like to try one of the Tiffin Boxes. These consist of a surprise 4 dishes picked out by the chef, or mother if you go for the Indian School Tiffin.
We’re not normally the types to go for a dessert but we couldn’t resist sharing the The Mowgli Brownie. It was filled with warming spices and the taste of cardamom really stood out. It’s delicious and would be particularly nice on one of these cold evenings we’ve been having recently.
Mowgli also have a base in Manchester at the Corn Exchange. I’ll be making sure I head there with a few friends the next time I visit so we can share a wider range of dishes.
Location: 69 Bold St, Liverpool L1 4EZ
If you’ve already ticked Mowgli off your list then try Lucha Libre followed by a few cocktails at Berry & Rye.
