Exploring the food options in Newcastle


Jul 26, 2017 #newcastle, #North East

For food-lovers who are always looking for something new, there’s an endless range of wonderful restaurants just waiting to be discovered in Newcastle.

From upmarket Italian bistros to some fun and friendly Indian takeaways, the city has got just about every kind of cuisine covered.

The Quayside area of the city is one of the most revered place to enjoy some fine dining. Not only do you get to enjoy a spectacular view of the River Tyne, but restaurants like Sabbatini’s and Babucho showcase the best in contemporary Italian cuisine.

Other great options to try in this popular area include the great traditional cooking and microbrewery at The Bridge Tavern pub, as well as some of the tantalising tastes of Southeast Asia at restaurants like Mantra Thai.

Newcastle has also shown itself to a great place to enjoy a wonderful curry. There’s a great deal of discussion about which is the best curry-house in Newcastle, with acclaimed eateries like Luigikhan’s and Aneesa’s jostling for first place as a result of their fine curries and warm hospitality.

But with new companies like Deliveroo giving us chance to enjoy a takeaway curry at home from a range of curry-houses, it seems that there’s a greater range of options than ever for tasting the delicacies from the Indian subcontinent.

For those who are seeking a lighter meal, there are plenty of healthier options too. The Naked Deli has only been in existence for just over a year, but it has already been winning over legions of health food fans as a result of its organic daytime treats like the vegan quinoa burger and the chargrilled tuna steak.

Whilst if you’re looking for one of the trendier food outlets in the city, then Peace and Loaf could be a good option. This stylish place has been winning some rave reviews as a result of its innovative cuisine and sleek interiors, and its extravagant desserts show that even fine dining can have a sense of humour.

And finally, we couldn’t miss the much-loved Blackfriars restaurant off the list. Based in a refectory dating back to 1239, it’s the oldest dining room in the UK, and its menu even gives you the opportunity of enjoying a five-course medieval banquet.

All of which shows that whether you want trendy healthy foods, a quick curry takeaway, or even a deeply traditional British meal, Newcastle has got it covered!
