Anyone who’s anyone knows that Cains Brewery Village is bossing it right now on the Liverpool food and drink scene, so when an invitation came winging its way to little old me to the Tusk Baltic winter menu showcase I decided I’d join the great and the good and at least pretend to be ‘anyone who’s anyone’.
Tusk’s name was inspired by Far Eastern travels and elephant welfare epiphany, and the animal lover vibe is present in a lot of their plant based and vegan friendly menu.
We sampled loads of vegan and veggie small plates from sticky cauliflower to falafel burgers, and loaded nachos with vegan cheese.
If, like me, you think you might just be the last full dairy meat eater in Liverpool, then don’t despair. The Halloumi fries, fried chicken slider, and salt and pepper Siu Mai went down a treat.
Tusk has a small but well stocked bar where you can get classic cocktails, or why not go for something more unusual like their Turkish Delight gin?
Located in the Northern Lights building on Mann Street, right next to Cains Brewery Village, it’s everything you’d expect from a Baltic eatery: airy, trendy, industrial. But its warm welcome and friendly staff paired with their real log burner and doggo hall of fame give it a cosy feel.
Chilled Sundays after mooching round Cains vintage stalls, winter dates, dog birthday parties (yes, you read right), and impressing the vegan in your life.
