Throughout September, The Co-Operative Food are travelling to different locations country-wide, setting up pop-up restaurants to showcase some of their delicious range of food using a dedicated Twitter-led campaign - Tweet4aTable. The idea is simple. All you have to do is log on to Twitter, and send a tweet to @Tweet4aTable stating why you deserve a a table reservation at the pop-up restaurant. If you are chosen as a winner, you (and up to three friends) get to enjoy a delicious meal and drink absolutely free of charge! A free meal?! I mean. Wow!
As we were seated at our table, our waitress explained that everything on the menu was from The Co-Operative range....from the drinks to the food to the condiments. We were handed our menus, and given time to peruse the options. Of course, Boyfriend and I didn't hesitate to take some selfies with the props on the table, and talk about how yummy everything on the menu sounded. As we were musing over the menu, we were given a basket brimming full of nachos, sour cream, salsa and guacamole to boot. Both Boyfriend and I were starving so didn't hesitate to dig right in. I'm not kidding when I saw that that guacamole was one of the best I have ever had.
It didn't take me long to decide what to have from the menu. As soon as I saw the "Holey Moley" my heart skipped a beat. With a soft chiabatta roll jam-packed with read-to-eat, smoky and sweet BBQ pulled pork, BBQ sauce, Gruyère, and American Coleslaw it sounded like heaven on a plate (we all know my love for all things BBQ-flavoured is undying!) Boyfriend opted for "Wingin' It." Buffalo wings served alongside blue cheese sauce and celery. He ordered a side order of the spring onion fries whereas I opted for coleslaw ones instead.
Oh good heavens above! There it was. Giving me coy "come hither" stares and looked delicious.... Pulled pork heaven on a plate. Tender, juicy, saucy, succulent. I don't think it really saw the sides of the plate. The American-style coleslaw was a perfect accompaniment to the slight smokiness of the sauce and added a touch of sweetness. The bun was super-soft, and the fries cooked to perfection, nestled next to the pork pile up. Boyfriend had a taste too and was in agreement. In the BBQ pulled pork ratings, this was high up on the list indeed.
Boyfriend said that his wings were beautiful too, with just the right amount of kick to them without knocking your socks off. The blue cheese sauce was a welcome addition, and Boyfriend loved being able to smother his wings in it. He just wished there had been some on top of the wings themselves rather than being hidden underneath. But that's tells you how good the sauce was.
We left with full bellies, and big smiles on our faces!
Tweet4aTable and the pop-up restaurant has now left Liverpool, but they are heading to Manchester and Newcastle very soon (they will be in Manchester 17th-19th September & Newcastle 24th-26th September.) So if you are in the area and want to score yourself a table, make sure you are following @Tweet4aTable and give them a tweet telling them why you deserve to be dining at their pop-up restaurant.
If you visited the Liverpool Tweet4aTable restaurant, or plan to #Tweet4aTable let me know!
