Hungry Customer Drops £1,522 On Takeaway From Steven Gerrard's Restaurant
| Last updated
We've all become carried away doing some online shopping at one time or another, but one hungry shopper might be regretting their Deliveroo bill on Monday morning - having spent £1,522 on takeaway food from restaurant Vincent over the Deliveroo app, the Liverpool Echo reports.
The Scouser with expensive taste may have got a bit carried away when purchasing food using the app last weekend from the restaurant, which is co-owned by Liverpool FC legend Steven Gerrard.
WATCH THE TRANSFORMATION OF A 34 STONE MAN WHO WAS ADDICTED TO TAKEAWAYS:
The order consisted of an extravagant array of sushi platters, fillet steaks and three bottles of vintage champagne - each sold at an eye-watering £400 per bottle - in what is likely to be one of Liverpool's most expensive takeaway orders ever.
The lavish spread included:
- 3 bottles of vintage French Krug champagne - £1200 (£400 per bottle)
- 2 large sashimi sharing platters - £68 (£34 each)
- 1 Vincent 'tempura' sushi special costing £8
- 4 8oz premium fillet steaks - £118 (£29.50 each)
- 2 sides of buttered spinach - £14 (£7 each)
- 2 sides of honey glazed carrots - £14 (£7 each)
- 2 side of battered onion rings - £14 (£7 each)
The hungry customer also splurged out on a series of rich desserts including:
- 2 cheeseboards - £40 (£20 each)
- 2 caramel, marshmallow and chocolate dessert platters - £46 (£23 each)
Wow, what a hero. That really is quite a feast they must've had there - I think I've got gout just reading the list through. Good to see that the mystery shopper wasn't holding back on the sides, either... though a couple of portions of chips wouldn't have gone amiss, surely?
Speaking about the bumper order, a source at The Vincent told the Echo: "We've had some pretty expensive nights out in the Vincent but this has got to be the biggest takeaway order ever placed. Someone was really pushing the boat out."
Mind you, it's not all sunshine and rainbows (or tuna sashimi and battered onion rings), as the restaurant recently came under fire for its poor hygiene levels, and has since admitted three breaches of food safety legislation after a prosecution by Liverpool Council.
According to the first charge, surfaces in the premises were 'unclean', while the second relates to 'gaps and holes' that provided entry points for mice. The third charge states that mice droppings and a live mouse were discovered in the main kitchen, on December 7, 2016.
