We wanted to get the lowdown on Darby Street's best eats.See our handpicked guides to Newcastle
We dropped in on a bunch of Darby Street's retailers, curious to know what they order on the strip. We discovered some juicy little suggestions that have now gone to the top of our must-eat list. Starting with (and in no particular order)...
1. Natalie and Melissa Hart from Blooms on Darby
If we have to choose one out of the many it’s the dumplings at Dumpling Flavour, Juicy little steamed balls of deliciousness! During our late nights throughout wedding season a quick serve of coriander and beef dumplings drowned in chilli puts a fire under us to keep us going.
A notable mention must also go to Haywire for the Turkish savoury pastries - we love those and the gozleme are also a treat!
2. Liz from Scout
I eat out all the time and the Red Lentil Dahl from Goldbergs is what I've been ordering for lunch at the moment.
3. John from Whitakers
I love Delucas spaghetti with sausage & tomato ragu, so delicious and the cheesy garlic bread is always a must. Italian food has always been my favourite and Delucas does it oh so well. Their pizzas are amazing too!
5. Ellie from Cream
The Eggs Beeny from Three Monkeys!
6. Adriana from Monella:
I’d have to say a Buddha bowl from The Autumn Rooms, always delicious
7. Nathan WIA
I don’t really know what my favourite is but I eat at Sushi Revolution all the time.
8. Nici from Blackbird Corner
I have to admit that I order the Satay Chicken at Goldbergs everyday followed by a peppermint icecream at Monella.
9. Alyce from Willows Home Traders
My go-to is the Spiced Quinoa Salad from The Depot. I love how reliably good The Depot is! Ticks all the boxes in my eyes.
10. Heidi from Custom Eye Care
You can’t beat
11. Sam from Pork Ewe Deli
What just one! There is so much good food on Darby Street. Gozleme at Haywire, Blue Cheese Gnocchi at Deluca's, Darby Raj for a quick
If pushed I would go for the mushroom toastie at The Autumn Rooms. Seriously one the most delicious breakfast dishes I’ve had in ages. Packed full of flavour it’s so much more than a toastie. Perfectly cooked eggs, truffle oil, mushrooms and halloumi, coupled with a good coffee it’s the perfect way to start the day. (see first photo)
12. Morgan from Pushing Pansies
I have never been much of a seafood eater, but after trying my first fish taco in Mexico last year, I soon became a fish taco fan. Beach Burrito has now become my go-to place for fish tacos because they cook it to perfection! The batter on the fish is crispy, and the sauce and salad ingredients are almost exactly the same as in Mexico. Every time I eat there I am always impressed by the close authenticity and flavours.
