Chicken livers at Yalla Yalla


I don’t like livers. Or should I say, I still don’t like livers. I can’t point to a particular aspect of them, though the taste is obviously the main thing – I just don’t like them and doubt I ever will. So I’d been worried about this dish and am, frankly, glad to have it over and done with.

“I’d hoped it might go some way to converting me”

To be fair, the pomegranate molasses marinade this was served in was delicious, and right after the bite the dish was pleasant enough. But then the aftertaste hits, with all its irony, bitter, bloody notes and I’m afraid I want to wretch. I didn’t make it through my whole bowl, and nor did Rachael.

I also thought this needed to be served with bread or salad, though to be fair we could have ordered sides.

All in all, this was never going to be the dish for me. I’d hoped it might go some way to converting me. It didn’t.

  1. I didn’t like liver. For years. And then I had a dish a bit like this, with chicken livers and changed my mind. I’ll only eat lamb or pig liver in the form now banned by Westminster Council (ie pink), but these look pretty epic! I’d agree on a side salad or bread (or both, why not?). Will need to work out a weekend in London SOON..
