As the restaurant sector celebrates Liverpool being recognised as the third most popular UK city in the last Conde Nast Traveller Awards, it is timely that the team behind the hugely popular Jidong Bubble Tea chain in the region have just launched Renshaw Street Food Market, with a curated selection of food outlets, bringing a casual-yet-cosmopolitan option for dining out in the city centre.


As Liverpool has such an all-embracing cultural heritage locally, and has an immediate population interested in new trends in food and drink, as well as being a national and international tourist centre, the team at Jidong decided it was time to make a move into expansion to include other, carefully selected, food and beverage specialists, where each menu, ethos, quality standard and creative level, sits well alongside their own unique brand. Shanghai-based Jidong Bubble Tea now boasts more than 3000 stores globally, having opened its first UK-based outlet in 2019.


Renshaw Street Food Market is located close to Berry Street, Bold Street and Leece Street, making it the perfect spot in an already thriving area as a dining, leisure and entertainment zone. As well as Jidong Bubble Tea, the Market has leading international brands including Dagu Rice Noodle, ZX Fresh Fried Chicken and Ndo Sushi, to name but a few. Already popular around the globe, including China and the US, each outlet prides itself on inventive dishes based around fresh produce. The Food Market is also playing host to a wonderful range of cuisines from all over the globe, which have found a home in Renshaw Street, from Italian to Turkish to Thai, offering a real array of international flavours – Mexican street food is on the menu, too.


The interior is inspired by the cyberpunk aesthetic, with a combination of futuristic technologies with traditional Chinese elements, such as dragons and tigers. This theme is highlighted via many oriental-inspired neon lights that are installed in the market, transporting people into the bustling and lively streets of Asia and giving them the authentic experiences of a dynamic Asian nightlife in a truly futuristic setting.


The market was officially opened this week by Liverpool Lord Mayor Cllr Roy Gladden as well as former Lord Mayor Gary Millar, who is the President of the Liverpool China Partnership. Hundreds of guests got to sample food and drink from all corners of the globe while a traditional Chinese dragon display also set the scene.

Director of the Renshaw Street Food Market Jie Hu said:


“Renshaw Street Market The market itself is an impressive size, and is in such a key location. It is the ideal location for foodies wanting a laid-back experience with fantastic fresh dishes. Our warm, welcoming, easy atmosphere will provide the perfect setting for everyone enjoying summer days out, evenings in the city, and of course, shopping breaks, weekend stays and occasions. We also have a fabulous bar area – perfect for a cool drink during this warm summer weather.”


Gopal, the owner of the  BAJA Mexican street food unit added:


“ We are so pleased to open our site in this great location this year. We look forward to serving the people of Liverpool some authentic Mexican street food. “ 


Likewise the owner of Donato, which serves Italian cake and ice cream, Antonietta added:


“We just love the idea of all the independent operators being under one roof. There really is something for everybody at the Renshaw Street Food Market. “

In a city bracing itself for a busy time in terms of retail, summer events and entertainment dining, Renshaw Street Food Market is aiming at carving out its own niche, celebrating authentic Asian-based food, as well as a whole host of other options from around the globe, for everyone to share.
