Street food vendor Caribou is opening a restaurant on Slater Street, in Liverpool.

It will specialise in 'poutine' - a Canadian fast food dish of chips topped with cheese curd and gravy, which is renowed for being the ultimate comfort food.

After travelling around Canada, owners of Caribou, Michael Palfreeman and Lizzie Hurst decided to fill the poutine gap in the market.

For years they have been serving Canadian-inspired dishes as street food across the UK.

With Lizzie being from Liverpool she knew the city was screaming out for poutine - even if we didn鈥檛 know it just yet.

With that in mind, the couple decided to open a permanent restaurant and bring poutine to Liverpool.

All the fries made by Caribou are hand cut from Maris Piper potatoes and double cooked in sunflower oil with skin on.

The gravy is homemade from traditional Quebec recipe with their own secret twist and the cheese curds and other dairy products used are sourced from UK dairy farms.

All the meat is sourced from British farms.

Caribou is expecting to open in May on Slater Street.
