The newest addition to Liverpool’s independent food scene is the Canadian inspired Caribou. Serving the traditional dish of poutine (that’s chips, cheese curds and gravy to you and me) with a selection of mouthwatering toppings, Caribou have brought a little piece of Canada to the North West of England.
Founded by Lizzie and Michael in 2014, Caribou has spent the last two years trading on the streets of Birmingham, Manchester and London. Lizzie, who is a native scouser, knew that there was special place for poutine in Liverpool and knew the city would welcome their idea with home arms (and mouths).
And it did just that! On their opening day, Caribou had queues out the door of their unit and shifted over 700 portions of their poutine selling out before closing time. It doesn’t get much better than that on day 1. Since then, the feedback both online and on the streets has been pretty special. If you don’t believe us, you can check out their Facebook reviews here. The 5 star rating speaks for itself.
Caribou is open Tuesday – Sunday, 12pm till late. If you’re in the area, make sure you drop in. You won’t be disappointed.
