Kasbah Cafe Bazaar Liverpool

Before I do a final kid-friendly round-up on our trip to Liverpool, I wanted to tip you off on a fantastically fashionable cafe on Bold Street, where we called for lunch yesterday…

Kasbah Cafe Bazaar is a fragrant and friendly cafe with an authentic Moroccon vibe. It’s in a busy, buzzy area of town and is the perfect place to have a funky lunch with the family, with gorgeous Eastern flavours, spices and excellent service. We literally stumbled upon it when we were exploring the area, and although the boys (read: fussy eaters) were slightly dubious about trying it, they absolutely loved the food and the atmosphere (the hats helped).

The Kasbah is definitely going on my list of “must visit” venues whenever I’m in town.

Marrakesh souk style: With an authentic interior (and scary statues in the toilets) this is a really special little cafe to try for lunch or dinner in Liverpool
Bazaar: All the furniture and ornaments are for sale in the Kasbah
You can buy herbs, spices and relishes to take home too
We opted for the lunch menu (£10.95 for two courses) – the falafel, from the Moroccan tapas selecton, was scrumptious
Another delicious starter option: Briouats Lala Zhour (filo pastry filled with Feta cheese, spinach and fresh herbs)
Perfect for fussy eaters: El says that if he “had the chance” he would eat his chicken brochettes (succulent pieces of chicken marinated in Moroccan authentic spices and served with saffron rice and salad) again right now
Rose and I tried the rather spectacular sweet and savoury “Pastilla de Mekness”, a traditional Moroccan pie with chicken and almonds, finished with sugar and cinnamon
Getting stuck in: The main menu also includes sandwiches on Moroccan flat bread and Moroccan pancakes (Msamen)
The mummies: Full and smiley
A wonderful lunch is finished off with a fragrant hand wash: If you’re looking for a flavoursome meal in an independent (and family-friendly) Liverpool cafe, head to the Kasbah
