Respond to Review of Liverpool Food Market
by Stevie

Review: This place is by no means a bastion of vegetarianism. When I arrived in Donetsk I was talking to a couple of locals who I asked about vego eateries in the city. They said to me that it would be tough and that with the Liverpool has a bit of a studenty kind of scene and is the best place to go to try to get some vegetarian food. The choice is big you don't need to be in there long to see that the majority of the clientelle are meat eaters. My Russian is pretty limited and there wasn't much English spoken by staff so there was a bit of a language barrier but I gave it a go anyway. They do little dishes of pickled sea veg which at 5 UAH is an utter bargain by Western prices. They offer salads and soups one of which is called vegetarian soup. They offer pasta with a tomato sauce, rice dishes with vegetable, various sorts of potatoes and potato wedges and the like. What has gone into these in the cooking process I am afraid I have no idea and if you go and want to ascertain that, you will need to try yourself with either better Russian than I speak or maybe have more luck than me and get a member of staff who speaks English. Prices are inexpensive by Western standards. Location is central 4 doors away from the main drag (even though the address published is that of the main drag). The place also has a 3 star hotel that I haven't stayed in and also a live music venue and a karaoke bar. I would love this place to be more geared towards vegos than it. In Ukraine though, that is optimistic. Up to you if you want to try to make the most of this place. Payment is using the card payment system that they have. Rock up to the payment booth on the way and the lady there will sort you out.
