Damon's, Speke Rd, Liverpool
I know what you're thinking- what was veggie curry fiend Vindaloo Queen doing in an establishment whose signature dish is ribs? Damon's is Liverpool's hidden gem for cocktails and contrary to popular belief, it is possible to go in there just for a tipple! As you have probably guessed, there was a severe lack of veggie friendly dishes on the menu so I checked out the cocktails and cakes instead. I had the Virgin Banana and Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri, £2.80 each or half price if you go midweek before 7. These delicious concoctions are ever so moreish and the atmosphere of Damon's is a throwback to a glamorous era. Utilising the old airport building from the 1930s, the Art Deco architecture is used to great advantage, providing cosy nooks and crannies to while away the afternoon in and some great photo opportunities. I also scoffed a carrot cake served with lashings of whippy ice cream for only £2.50. Now, if only Damon's decided to throw in a few veggie dishes, this place would be the perfect night out!
