Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Jesmond’s Sohe Shakes things up this Spring with a selection of New Experiences


Jun 11, 2017

BRUNCH, Asian High Tea and a new à la carte menu are just some of the new additions at Asian-fusion restaurant, Sohe, as it marks its third birthday on Osborne Road.

Taking inspiration from American brunching but with an Eastern twist, Sunday Brunch has been introduced as a weekly fixture, available from 12pm – 4pm, perfect for casual weekend dining with both sweet and savoury options.

Stand out plates include a healthier take on a classic, Avocado and Spinach Benedict served on a toasted breakfast muffin (£6.95); Sohe Steak Sandwich, a 5oz rump steak cooked to your liking in a warm ciabatta with mustard mayo and fries (£9.25); as well as Sohe’s speciality sushi in the Sashimi Platter – nine pieces including salmon, crabsticks and scallops (£9.50).

Those with a sweet tooth can round off brunch or skip straight to pudding as a variety of treats and a brand new waffle selection make it hard to resist. Waffles are served warm and accompaniments range from Banana and Toffee (£4.50) to Strawberries and Cream (£4.95).

Moving into the afternoon, the Cairn Group owned restaurant’s new Asian High Tea concept makes for an exciting get together with friends, the other half, or for an extra special family gathering, and is available every Friday to Sunday between 12pm and 5pm (£17.99 per person).

Comprising a collection of oriental tasters and a cocktail surprise, diners can sit down to Asian cuisine bites including flavour-packed wraps, chicken satay and rice balls; followed by a tier of tempting mini desserts made up of macaroons, lemon posset and chocolate torte; as well as an all-important scone with condiments.

Of course, high tea wouldn’t be high tea without the tea element, which comes in the form of a pot of infused tea and two cocktails, guests can choose from a range of thirst-quenching blends to conclude the indulgent experience.

Elsewhere, the restaurant’s à la carte menu has seen a revamp with the addition of new starters, main courses and desserts, boasting influences from Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Korea and beyond.

These include 35 Day Aged Fillet of Beet served with grilled onions, Japanese-pickled mushrooms and sweet potato fries (£29.95); as well as rice and noodle bowls including the Kaeng Khiao Wan Thai Green Curry (£13.90).

The restaurant is also continuing to run its Bottomless Fizz menu during weekends, ideal for a girls’ day out. Take your pick of a starter and main from the special menu accompanied by unlimited Prosecco (£26.95 per person).

These highlights come as the popular restaurant, known as a favourite amongst the North East’s celebrity elite, celebrates three years in business this May.

Jonathan Sabarre, group marketing manager at Cairn Group, said: “We’re always reinventing our offering and keeping our customers on their toes so now we’ve reached our third birthday, it presents a prime opportunity to make some of our most dramatic changes yet. We are really pleased to have introduced these exciting experiences which we hope, both our loyal faces, and those who are yet to visit us will enjoy.

Sunday Brunch and Asian High Tea have just launched this spring and are already proving to be a hit, allowing people an excuse to make the most of their leisure time at the weekend in good company over flavoursome food and cocktails.”
