    No, we do not know why is it called Liverpool. We assumed it to be inspired by football team since the shop is packed with Liverpool merchandise. What we do really know is the fact that they serve quite a delicious plate of nasi lemak. Packed with rich coconut rice, spicy sambal, fried chicken, ikan bilis, peanuts and cucumber, it's simple yet lovable!
