A tapas trail in Manchester would be quite impossible as there are no decent tapas bars in the city centre right now until Ibérica come to Spiningfields in the Autumn. Not so in Liverpool. So as we were going for the day, we worked out a map. What follows is less of a restaurant review (as we only sampled a few dishes at each place), more of a general impression of the food that we had (although I asked at each one which were their best tapas).
Next up and just around the corner, in a great position is Salt House Tapas. It was only 12.20 and it was already 3/4 full. Yes, there was a strike on Thursday, but this certainly indicates how popular this place is with locals.
Neon Jamón, about 15 minutes drive up the road was the one I was looking forward to the most in a way as there seems to be a bit of hype around it.
I had thought that there would be a clear winner and was going to crown the best tapas of the day but neither of us could quite decide, certainly Lunya and Salt House were the strongest of the three for us, but they were all quite different.
