Newcastle - Eldon Square - Harry David Tabik Review
The staff were the real highlight of my visit, which I think is always bad for a restaurant because I think the food should be the highlight. Despite its business, the service was excellent. The atmosphere was buzzy, but not too noisy. The company was delightful, but the food was a bit average. Chicken was dry, mashed potato was lumpy, garlic bread was cold, chicken wings, well, where do I start with the wings?
My chicken wings were tiny, I got the same amount of meat on 3 as I usually get on 1. The skin was not crispy enough and it felt rushed and had not been cooked properly to the standards usually associated with Nando's hot wings.
I was very impressed, however, with the houmous. Rather than looking like a scoop of ice cream, it looked like a real tub of houmous! The pitta bread was warm.
An ideal pre-match Nando's for an away win at St James' Park. It was also nice to spend part of my day in Newcastle away from some of the Geordie chavs at the ground.
