Liverpool ‘culinary hub’, Duke Street Market, is launching a new kids menu, available from Wednesday, February 19, during half-term.
To mark the launch of the menu, the dog-friendly market is giving the first 25 children to arrive from 12pm on Wednesday and Thursday, February 19 and 20, a free dish of their choice, as well as a Duke Street Market balloon
New dishes include hamburger and hand cut chips from red meat specialist Bone and Block, penne pasta with meatballs and tomato sauce or half Margherita pinsa from much-loved Italian Cucina Di Vincenzo.
There’s also a cheese and ham Cubano from Cuban-inspired Finca, chargrilled chicken thigh and crushed new potatoes or chargrilled seabass and crispy new potatoes from Cinder the kitchen that specialises in open fire cooking.
And there is plant-based sausage, beans, scramble with toast from vegan kitchen Indigo Greens and mini udon noodles or breaded mini chicken breast and rice from Asian inspired Ginger.
Children will also receive a colouring sheet and word search, and on Wednesday and Thursday there will also be a face painter at the venue, as well as local sweet shop Sweet on the Street which will be pitched up in the market’s foyer selling sweet boxes and treats.
Lee Bannon-Smith, Duke Street Market’s general manager, said: “We’re a family-friendly venue so it was only a matter of time before we broadened our offering to launch a dedicated children’s menu. The market prides itself on quality dishes so all of our kids meals are packed with fresh ingredients and there’s something to suit all tastes.
“From crowd-pleasers such as hamburger and chips, and pasta and meatballs, and chargrilled chicken and potatoes, to something a little bit different like our delicious cheese and ham Cubano and mini udon noodles, your children won’t get bored at Duke Street Market.”
