Had a rocky start to the day when we were caught in traffic while getting to the train station and missed our train to Liverpool… thankfully we were allowed to board the next available train and arrived in our hotel in Liverpool at around 3pm. After a quick change, we headed to Liverpool ONE, a huge open-air shopping and leisure district at the city centre for our late-lunch at Lunya Catalonian Deli, Restaurant & Bar.
Chose to eat there as the eatery serves tapas, which was ideal for small bites before we make our way to the Liverpool stadium at Anfield. The lunchtime tapas set menu includes 3 Tapas, homemade sourdough bread & dessert. We chose the Gambas pil pil (prawns in chilli, garlic and vanilla), Langostinos (langoustine tails in light beer batter) and Croquetas. I really enjoyed the Langostinos, freshly fried and crispy. The prawns and croquetas were ordinary.
After the hiccup this morning, we definitely love to relax by having some drinks. Ordered Sangria and Cava Sangria along with jamón ibérico de bellota. Look at the selection of jamon iberico hung over at the Deli~ Bellota ham is one of the finest cured hams around, they are well cured hence the rich and delicious waxy texture.
Ended our meal with Crema Catalana – Spanish version of crème brûlée. With our semi-filled tummies, we were ready to figure our way to Anfield.

Match ended with 1-0 win to Liverpool, thanks to a penalty scored by Mario Balotelli.
