What's Cooking?

What's Cooking?, 24 Britannia Pavilion, Albert Dock, Liverpool

Today my mum and sister decided to come up and visit me in Liverpool, as they both had the day off. It has been a fairly sunny but blustery day so we have wandered around the shops (I bought some new pants... because you always need new pants, right?) and the docks for a while.

For lunch we decided to stop off at What's Cooking?, an American style restaurant located on the Albert Dock. The menu features dishes from the States, Mexico or the Caribbean - the food is mainly burgers, fajitas, burritos and steaks. We shared a plate of nachos to start, which was supposed to just be for 2 people but was huge (and delicious). I decided to have a veggie burger for my main, but not just any veggie burger - a Billy-Boy style veggie burger. It contained goats cheese, roasted red pepper, caramelised onion and apricot and ginger sauce - and to top it all off was served with sweet potato fries. It was delicious - really moist and very filling. So much so that I couldn't even manage to have a pudding, which is most unusual for me! Katie, my sister, went for the Scooby Snack burger; it had two beef burgers, lettuce, tomato, red onion, gherkin, cheese, bacon and pineapple - I'm really not quite sure how she managed it. I would also recommend their milkshakes - I had banana and mum went for chocolate. I think What's Cooking? would be great in the evening as the dock would be lit up - the cocktails also looked amazing so it would be worth having a visit to the bar if you feel so inclined.

I've had a really lovely day with two of my favourite people; it's made me look forward to summer so I can spend more time with my family!
Do what you love, say what you feel, and live without regret.
