Your Top Ten Newcastle restaurants – #RSH Guides
Each week, 10 savvy train fans win £10 worth of redspottedhanky.com loyalty points by tweeting their tips about a set destination to #RSH Guides, for us to share through foursquare. This week, we asked you to tweet us with your pick of Newcastle’s best restaurants.
Read on for this week’s winning tips and find out where to go for a munch when you’re next ‘on the toon’. And don’t forget to share your ideas with us using Twitter – you could win loyalty points to put towards cheap train tickets, hotel stays or car hire.
• @alex_elwick took the first of this week’s prize points with a Twitter tip to try Prima, a lovely little Italian restaurant. And train fans should find there’s more than pasta to keep them happy, as this restaurant’s dining room is built into the high level railway bridge across Dean Street.
• @BythewayAJ steamed into this week’s top 10 with a top recommendation for anyone looking for a taste of the East. He says to try Electric East in Waterloo Square for dishes from Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. Our tummies are definitely rumbling at the thought.
• @Ollie Hutchins made it into this week’s picks too with a great shout recommending the Linguine con Polpette at the Marco Polo on Dean Street. What’s more – this restaurant has a bar too, so you could always stay for an amaretto or Peroni before you go on the toon looking for a taste of Newcastle’s lively club scene.
• @BritaBevis took home those loyalty points too with a top tweet suggesting we try The Salsa Café & Tapas Bar on Westgate Road for great food in ‘shabby chic’ surrounds. And with Catalan and Mexican dishes on the menu, as well as potato skins and open sandwiches, we can see why.
• @MarkJosiah railroaded his way into our top ten this week with his Twitter suggestion to go to the Fisherman’s Lodge in leafy Jesmond Dene. The Lodge serves afternoon tea and lunch too – so you pop in even if you don’t quite fancy fish. And, as Mark points out, there’s plenty of scenic woodland nearby – perfect if you’re looking to walk off those calories.
• @dr_acula365 chugged into this week’s top 10 with a top tweet suggesting we try Noosh on Amen Corner for dishes that blend Middle Eastern and European flavours. The décor’s meant to be really slick too – but that doesn’t mean a meal there will break the bank, according to @dr_acula365 it’s ‘excellent value.’
• @Inspiredscilly also won those prize points with a Twitter recommendation to go to Reza – a Persian restaurant on Westgate Road that serves authentic Iranian cuisine based on ancient beliefs that consuming lots of red meat and fats would lead to evil and selfishness while eating fruits, vegetables, fish, fowl, spices and rose petals would make the body noble.
• @Adrienne B won those loyalty points too with a short but sweet tweet recommending Luigi Khan’s – a swish Indian restaurant with bare walls, chesterfield sofas and gilt frames, as well as its very own Shisha lounge.
• @PokHimWong made it into our winners’ list too with a straight-to-the-point Twitter suggestion to try The Silk Room – a restaurant and champagne bar at Newcastle’s very trendy Quayside. You’ll find 25 brands of fizz on offer as well as 16 champagne cocktails – and an equally classy menu.
• @Crudgeee pulled in the last of this week’s points with a top Twitter tip to head for The Old Siam – a Thai restaurant in Newcastle’s Micklegate. And it’s not just @Crudgeee that loves the food here, as The Old Siam ranks as no 1 of 414 restaurants in Newcastle on Trip Advisor.
Congratulations to this week’s winners – and thanks for all of your Twitter recommendations! If you didn’t win this week, don’t worry – you could win in next week’s competition.
