“When I first came to Liverpool, nobody had even seen an aubergine and hadn’t heard of things like green chilli or coriander” is perhaps one of the quaintest statements I have read in association with Bold Street since I started working on this project. But sadly, whilst I like the idea that Bold Street introduced aubergines to the diners of Liverpool, the news article this is taken from has a somewhat sadder tone. Asha, Liverpool’s oldest restaurant a Bold Street institution is set to close. You can read Caroline Innes’ article and interview with Asha’s Dipak Choudhury for the Liverpool Daily Post here.
