7 reviews of Matta's Delicatessens in English
Always busy, with packed shelves and swarthy young men carry boxes back and forth, Mattas has been here for as long as I can remember and continues to sell weird and wonderful food from the far East and beyond. Staff are friendly and helpful. Well recommended.
Mattas shop is brilliant, i just love to go into, the smell of spices and herbs lure you into the shop, the owners are always helpful and polite which is a very nice change to some shops nowadays. such a wide variety of exotic foodstuff, vegetables, herbs and spices, great focus point for Liverpool. Keep up the good work folks we love you ;-) I can always find just what i want in this shop.
I stepped into Mattas for the first time today and almost passed out with joy. It truly is a foodie's wet dream - stuffed to the gills with every type of weird and wonderful food stuff under the sun from Aubergines to brick-like blocks of soursweet Tamarind paste. Hell, it even sells Ayurvedic Toothpaste. Don't ask me what makes it Ayurvedic, I'm just taking this one on trust.
Perhaps one of the best things about Mattas is the ability to buy some of your favourite food stuffs in mind bogglingly large quantities - making it a must for any hungry student on a tight budget. When in there today, I saw an obscenely huge bottle of Tabasco sauce for the low low price of £6. Bargain-tastic!
In fact, the only bad thing I have to say about Mattas is that I couldn't find any Sumac in there when I visited today. But that's just a minor gripe about what is a true treasure - and arguably one of the best delicatessens in the whole of Liverpool.
Just great! compact and convenient and one of the reasons bold street is the heart of Liverpool, if Mattas went the world would probably end! Get their early if your after the fresh produce as this does disappear very quickly.
Really helpful staff and customers!
A reliable presence for decades on L’pool’s Bold St, Matta’s is the first resort for both gourmet cook and 'starving-student-on-a-budget’ alike. A vast range of esoteric and exotic herbs and spices, sit side by side with vegetables you’ve probably never heard of, along with all the usual deli produce. However, it’s the in-depth range of Matta’s groceries that makes it such an important source for healthy foodstuffs. Of particular note: bulk buy deals for staples such as rice and lentils, delicious fresh-baked breads, and slabs of tofu in the refrigerated section less than half the price of a similar supermarket purchase. And for those with the sheer nerve to actually front-up at the checkout, you can even buy tins of something called 'Cock Soup’. Not open on Sundays.
