Variety for vegans - Edit

I can't believe how many times I've walked past this place assuming it just had rice and noodles etc in. It's an aladins cave of interest. Loads vegan food. Ready meals,cheese sauces etc.
But also unusual veg and spices .there was spaghetti and pasta made from all sorts of unusual stuff like black beans. I bought seitan and fresh turmeric and some other bits as I was on the train. I'm going back in the car.

Pros: Variety, Cheaper than Liv

Wonderful health food / international store - Edit

Matta's is a treasure trove! So many essentials and treats under one roof. Love their fresh sourdough loaf. Staff are always super friendly, it's centrally located on Bold Street and the prices are not as high as other similar stores. Love this place.

Pros: Vast selection, Friendly staff, Great location

Great shop for harder to find ingredients - Edit

I love this shop for staples such as nut milks, various tofu items and vegan deli items. Although it isn't totally vegan like the Purple Carrot on Smithdown Road, it also has lots of great value bulk buy items such as nuts, spices, grains and rice. They also stock raw chocolate and vego bars - so no more :-)

Pros: Usual fruit and veg including plantains, turmeric , Large range of vegan treat foods

Cons: Not completely vegan but only small quantities of , I wish it was bigger!!!

Great shop! - Edit

This shop has a delightful selection of vegan items from cheese to desserts. We bought a wide range of chocolates (Booja Booja) and fudge and greatly impressed our non-vegan friends who live in Liverpool.

Pros: Wide selection of vegan items, Centrally located

Do not miss! - Edit

Matta's is such a wonderful shop. We always stock up on our spices, herbs, tofu, nuts, vegan chocolate, and beans (and much more!) each month. Very friendly and helpful staff and a wide range of products to suit both vegetarians and vegans.

Wide choice of vegan-friendly products - Edit

Popped in for a quick nosey and spent half an hour looking round. Lots of vegan-friendly products and all very well priced.

Left with a bag full and will return. A great place to source international ingredients that are tricky to get elsewhere.

Matta's, Liverpool - Edit

Matta's bills itself as an international food shop and not as a health food shop. Some of their things on offer will almost certainly interest a large number of vegetarians of all persuasions (including vegan veggies).

However some of the things that they are offer are quite obviously not vegetarian without having to read label the to see the ingredients (eg dead fish in the freezer compartment). I personally find this somewhat off putting and I have one friend who refuses to go there on account of this. Having said that though they do have some brilliant stuff in Matta's and some veg*n friendly things that I'm not aware in any of the health food shops in Liverpool. I find myself going there a bit more regularly. Its a real shame about some of the things that they sell so far that reason I am unable to rate it higher than this.

Not all vegan... but staff are willing to help - Edit

Plenty of vegan options amongst others and good value for money (especially the bulk bags of dried beans).

Many vegan products - Edit

Matta's was a life saver while in Liverpool as it stocks plenty of vegan products including spreads, milks, faux meats... Matta's is not at all, however, a 100% veg shop. Helpful and friendly staff.
