  1. What ever happened to Nolita Cantina? I used to love that place. Best burgers in Liverpool, and with Samual Adams on draught, what was not to love? They seemed to close down pretty quickly amidst all this Covid panic lockdown. Of course it wasnt just their burgers that were second to none, it was the gravy. A thick n peppery puddle of beef, served in a small white metal dish just right for dipping chips in three at a time. The Burnt Ends also deserve a special mention. Moist tender and slow cooked.

    1. LOVE Nolita Cantina and it’s one of our favourite places but it just didn’t quite make our top 10!
