Dining al desco





Tired of squashed packed lunches from the bottom of your bag and what’s left at the petrol station on your way to work? If so, grab your coat and head out for some of these lunchtime takeaway treats in Newcastle city centre

Pet Lamb PatisserieThe Grainger Market
This Victorian market in the heart of Newcastle is a foodie heaven filled with lunchtime options – from Chinese dumpling and tea bar Nan Bei to some of the freshest seafood in the city cooked while you wait at Lindsay’s To Go. There’s a huge selection of sandwiches, pies and pasties at The French Oven, while a Sloppy Joe is a must if you’re hungry. Grab a crêpe at La Petite Crêperie, or a giant slice of pizza at Slice. Or pick up some goodies from Pet Lamb Patisserie, pictured, or a traditional Turkish coffee with Turkish delight at Fez Food.

Time BanhmiGrab a sarnie
Rushing out to grab a sandwich doesn’t have to be boring. Check out Vietnamese sandwich bars Time Banhmi on Grainger Street and Chom Banhmi on Clayton Street for an Asian twist. For a meat feast, pop in to Kracklin on Market Street for classic roast meat sandwiches including the New York-inspired Ruebens and the Italian street food-style porchetta.

Dabbawal on High Bridge, pictured, does a fantastic takeaway and we can vouch for the roomali wraps for a real taste of the stunning street food of Mumbai. Alternatively, go for a meat feast at Longhorns barbecue Smokehouse, grab a sushi and sashimi selection from Nudo Sushi Box in Northumberland Street and Grainger Street, or pick up a Mexican burrito from Zapatista on Ridley Place and Grainger Street.
