Do you Deliveroo? Bites, beers & beats with Deliveroo Liverpool

If you don’t have a Scooby-doo about Deliveroo, you’ve been living underneath a rock. Now put the rock away so I can tell you all about them.

The idea behind this business model is actually really simple. Want food from your favourite restaurant? These guys deliver it. Boom. Basically they’re a hired out delivery service but that sounds super boring so let’s just say they are the super heroes of take-away. They’re the guys on their mopeds or bikes with their fashionable outfits delivering grub from places that probably didn’t do delivery before.

Using my home town as an example, the Chester branch of Carluccio’s now deliver their stuff to your door with these guys.

And oh my god yes so does the Burger Shed, or as I know it, the promised land of putting a meat patty between two sides of a bread.

So when Deliveroo in Liverpool drops an email into my inbox and asks if I fancy trekking to this super cool venue and having them deliver(oo) me food and a few drinks, it’s not like I’m going to say no, is it?

Plus it gives me a chance to hop over the Mersey to one of mine and hubby’s favourite cities.

So that’s exactly what we did yesterday night.

24 Kitchen Street, Liverpool

The idea behind the event was pretty simple. Turn up. Download Deliveroo app. Get credit. Order food on said credit. They deliver said food. Eat, drink and be merry. Oh, also, listen to live music.

The hardest part was to choose what to order. Because, seriously, there’s so many places I want to eat at just on Bold Street alone. After much deliberation (probably a lot louder than it needed to be, hubby had his chef hat on and I was getting hangry) we ordered our bodyweight in food from Mister Miyagi, this top notch Japanese spot on Bold Street.

The app is pretty easy to use – choose the stuff you want to feat upon by tapping what you like on the menu, when you’re done adding stuff to your to the basket you tap checkout, pay, and wait. You know exactly how long you’re waiting because the app tells you.

It took them about 20 minutes to deliver our food and let’s be real, they were probably quite busy with a full house of people ordering like mad. So, colour me impressed.

Grub from Mr Miyagi, Liverpool

And colour me in love with the food. We had hot and sticky Korean chicken wings (super spicy, not for the fainthearted), fried crispy duck gyozas with hoisin (we ended up fighting for the last one) (I won), blackened cod with a sweet miso sauce (pop went my taste buds) and glazed suckling belly pork with steamed buns (favourite of both). The order came to £32.50, of which Deliveroo pedaled £30 (see what I did there).

Let me be frank: I effing loved the food. It was delicious. And thinking that without Deliveroo this restaurant probably wouldn’t deliver their grub to food lovers in Liverpool just makes me sad so I won’t dwell on it a second longer than it takes me type this sentence.

We washed the fancy food down with some tasty Czech pilsner while swinging to some sweet sounds from the live band and the night was complete. I mean, super tasty grub, nice beer, great company in a fab venue with live music. What more can you ask from a Wednesday night?

Let’s do it again soon, Deliveroo, OK? I suffer from super withdrawal symptoms of your company.
