There is a real buzz about Liverpool, as always, yet with an added air of excitement. A coronation is in the mix for sure, but then there is Eurovision. The Floating Earth is a spectacular forerunner, an impressive installation, doing an elegant turn in the Royal Albert Dock, and illuminated after dusk. It can be seen at the Dock for the next few weeks. Exciting times.

His & Hers had an invitation to Sunday roast at Mamasan in Liverpool ONE. We walked through the city, passed contented shoppers and Spurs fans, due for a disappointment at Anfield, enjoying sightseeing and lunching before the match. We were loving the seasonal blossom in the air. Mamasan is a beautiful restaurant in the heart of the city. Sunday roast at an Asian restaurant sounded beguiling and intriguing.

The restaurant is inspired by the flavours of Southeast Asia, with the best of British produce from farm, field & sea. The entire menu is produced from scratch including authentic pastes including their own coconut cream, all served up in brasserie style surroundings. There are three floors in this impressive interior. A roof garden can be found on the top floor and happily it is that time of year again when we can enjoy the great outdoors, possibly with cocktails in the mix.

We were dining on the ground floor, which is light, bright and has beautiful glowing rattan lighting and charming décor. The staff are friendly and highly organised. Abbie looked after us and she was attentive and nudged us towards the butternut squash curry soup. Probably the best soup ever: it has a super smooth coconut cream flavour, with a satisfying squash base and that subtle curry kick. Sadly I could not entice the recipe from the chef, so may need to keep going back – it was that good.

We moved on to the chicken roast. There are other options including a veggie cauliflower dish. The Yorkshire pudding was the crowning glory: crunchy, munchie  and tasty. The chicken was infused with thyme and lemon-grass. The flavour was subtle but delightful. The chicken was succulent, moist and flavourful: the gravy/sauce substantial with depth and subtle taste. The ‘roasties’ were perfect, crunchy on the outside and squishy inside. This is seriously impressive cuisine.

We shared a gorgeous cheese-cake, which had a perfect, light finish. There are other dishes to try on other days too: crispy duck salad, wok fried chilli jam chicken and green curry of monkfish and king prawn.

It was a beautiful interlude in a busy week. We were welcomed in to a memorable food experience. Something to savour and celebrate: and they have plans for Eurovision too.

Comes highly recommended.
