The Sky Apple Cafe, Heaton Newcastle
We decided to try out the Sky Apple Cafe in Heaton this week as we had heard really good things about it. The menu is both vegetarian and vegan and there is a lot of choice – we struggled to decide! I ended up going for vegan Sweet Potato Burger with Asian slaw, which was so amazing I tried to recreate it the next day at home (tasted great but burgers fell apart a little!). My husband got the Sky Apple Classic burger which he said tasted great. We spotted another diner tucking into The Volcano dish which looked delicious, we both said we would try that next time! Even though we visited on a week day around 2pm it was fairly busy, I would recommend booking for weekend or night time visits. The service was great and we would definitely go back!
Tea Sutra, Newcastle
Tea Sutra is one of my favourite places to relax, drink interesting tea and eat delicious food. Both the day and night time menu is very select and consists of wraps such as falafel and butternut squash, salads and soups. The night time menu has such options as the Lebanese Bowl and Sweet Potato Curry. Tea sutra has always been busy when I’ve arrived but have always managed to get a seat. The service is brilliant and the desserts are amazing! I’m delighted to hear that Tea Sutra are now doing take out options. I will definitely be taking advantage of this since I work in Newcastle city centre!
Las Iguanas, Quayside Newcastle
This was my first visit to Las Iguanas and I was blown away by the vegan options that were available on the menu. I had the Three Mushroom Fajita which was lovely and the Tembleque for dessert which was like a coconut pana cotta – this blew my mind! Las Iguanas is a all round people pleaser due to the options available to vegans and non-vegans alike. Again the service was great and atmosphere was very relaxed – will definitely be returning!
