Joelinton, Aveika

The Brazilian was fantastic in the middle of the park for Newcastle on Saturday and it was his all-action performance that helped disrupt any potential Forest attack. Joelinton was given a WhoScored rating of 8.69.

Another Brazilian NUFC star and midfielder, 25-year-old Joelinton has been spotted previously in the popular Quayside restaurant Aveika. He celebrated his 23rd birthday there in 2019, and has named it as one of his favourite restaurants. Aveika is a unique place, as it combines a restaurant, bar and a club in one. They serve Japanese food, and have their own sushi bar. However, they also have plenty of other options. This week, they have a special Restaurant Week menu, which is priced at two courses for £15, or three courses for £20.

Alan Shearer, Khai Khai

Shearer is the Premier League’s all-time top scorer with 260 goals spread out across a 13-year career with Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United. Shearer is the Magpies’ record goalscorer with 206 goals in all competitions.

Newcastle United legend, former striker, Alan Shearer has been found to enjoy a meal at the celebrity hotspot, Indian restaurant Khai Khai.
