The Grainger Market is full of some of the best places to eat in Newcastle, here’s a run down on where you should go.
Made up of alleys, the food stalls are nestled between vegetable shops, seamstresses and butchers and so it can be pretty hard to navigate.
Before you settle on somewhere to eat, you want to know all of the delicious places on offer, right?
So, according to me and Tripadvisor, here are all of the places worth your time and money.
1. King Baby Bagels
Serving handmade bagels in alley one is King Baby Bagels, the go-to place for all of your sandwich needs. You can choose from a copious amount of fillings, or leave with multiple fresh bagels to amplify your morning meal. As they say themselves it’s ‘like New York, but a bit more radgie.’
Acropolis has been on the go since 2016 and is a familiar site on the Quayside market. A Tripadvisor Traveller’s Choice for 2022, the Greek street food has been proclaimed the best and most authentic in the North East. Gyros’ are their game and- with multiple awards under their belt- it seems they do it best. Found in alley one.
It’s no surprise Snackwallah is the number one place for a quick bite in Newcastle on Tripadvisor. Probably the most popular spot in alley one, the authentic vegan Indian street food is colourful and mouthwateringly good. With curries, rice bowls, wraps and sandwiches even ardent meat eaters have been known to question their life choices when tucking into a delicious bite.
4. Dumpling and Bun
My personal favourite, Dumpling and Bun has long been proclaimed one of Newcastle’s best kept secrets. Serving authentic and delicious Chinese dumplings and buns, one Tripadvisor reviewer proclaims them the “best dumplings ever!” The noodle soups are extremely warming in the winter and the numerous deals make the eatery really affordable. Found in alley one.
