THURSDAY 1 NOVEMBER 2018
THE HUNGRY VEGAN
Part of the new restaurant gang at STACK, Newcastle’s new food, shopping and social hub on Pilgrim Street, The Hungry Vegan is a go-to for quick bites at lunchtime and after-work sweet treats when hunger strikes. The small and friendly deli-style shop serves up all kinds of good stuff, including vegan sandwiches, subs and rolls, chocolate chip cookies, cupcakes and muffins. It even offers a vegan take on the cheese and onion pasty - a must-try!
Stop by The Bohemian, on Pink Lane, for a relaxed, casual dining experience, filled with some of the best, most unusual, vegan bites on offer in the city. Graze on mezze-style platters of hummus, veggies and vegan quesadillas to start, followed by inventive mains such as beer-battered tofu with chips and mushy peas, BBQ pulled jackfruit and vegan curry and vegan cheese chimichangas. Feeling fancy? Grab a friend and treat yourselves to a spot of vegan afternoon tea for two.
Perfectly positioned on Grey Street, Pizza Punks is a slice of foodie heaven for the region’s pizza-lovers – the new ‘in’ place in Newcastle for dreamy dough, made your way. Here, you’re free to pimp your sourdough pizza (fresh from the wood-fired oven) with as many topping combos as your heart desires, at no extra cost. You can even choose your mix of sauces and cheese. Vegans can top theirs with dairy-free cheese and all the veggies, as well as falafel, veggie sausage, and veggie haggis. For dessert, the vegan chocolate brownie ‘freakshake’ is a must. Think dairy-free chocolate ice-cream and chocolate sauce, topped with homemade vegan brownie pieces. Delish!
When the carb cravings hit, make your way to the fabulous and funky dAt bAr on Market Street for comforting bowls of goodness! This cool and quirky, laid-back bar and restaurant is renowned for its inventive and indulgent vegan dishes, ranging from flavour-packed pasta and pizza, to plant-based casseroles and colourful salads. We love the sweet potato mac ’n’ cheese, made with vegan mozzarella and blue cheese, and the orecchiette pasta with soya milk béchamel sauce, almonds and roasted cauliflower. Located just off Grey Street, dAt bAr is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat with your pals pre and post theatre trips - there's something on the menu for everyone!
