The Menu
  • From Childwall to Tianjin – Traditional Hot and Sour Baby Vegetable Soup. A real favourite from the Lu Ban menu, it’s bold, a real tastebud tingler! it reflects Dave’s journey over the last two years and is influenced by the food of the Tianjin region.
  • Surprisingly Cilla – Master Stock braised Pork Belly and Compressed Watermelon.
    Cilla was a lover of Chinese food especially pork dishes (according to her sons), this dish is a symbol of Cilla’s amazing TV success especially surprise surprise, the dish is influenced by ‘black, white and the smoke and mirrors of showbiz’.
  • Try it Yourself! – British Trout ‘Toban Jang’, choi sum, spring onion oil, soy and crispy fish skin.
    Influenced by Neil Buchanan born in Aintree Liverpool, and Chef Dave’s training as an artist! This dish reflects the creativity of the TV show Art Attack, the art/presentation of the finished dish is influenced by eye of the guest, each dish plated on the day will be an individual piece of artwork.
  • ‘A Right Royal Night In’ – This is a celebration of the Royal Variety Performance and the Liverpudlians who’ve starred in the show! Seared Fillet of Blackened Short Horn Beef, lemongrass and chilli pak choi, truffle and duck egg fried rice and black pepper sauce. Influenced by the Royal Variety Show and a Critchley Chinese take away!
  • A bit of ‘Brooky’ – Cherry lips and ‘a lovers kiss’ Baijiu cocktail. Influenced by the first lesbian pre-watershed kiss on TV, and more special to Dave as he was an extra on the show.
  • Doddy’s Diddy Butty Mine – Jam butty Doddy style! Broken biscuit ice cream, lychee, shisho and raspberry.
    Influenced by the late, great Sir Ken Dodd, and the mines discovered in 1627 by Sir Dingle Jetty, from Notty Ash who sadly died when he fell in a vat screaming “Heaven preserve us”.
