When work sends you away to Newcastle, you just have to try and make the most of it hence my eating adventure started again! After landing at night, I walked around the hotel in search of dinner and BAM I had supper lane in my sights. It looked quite busy for a Monday night so I shuffled in and got a table for 1 (cue the violins). The staff were super friendly and made me feel welcome at once.
First up, I got the miso cured fish (forgot which one) with creme fraiche. It looked so fresh and vibrant and I was so excited. However, it was a touch fishy and I didn’t enjoy that at all.
Market Fish – $20
Miso cured fish, apple, ginger, marjoram, creme fraiche
I saw Parfait on the menu and I couldn’t pass the opportunity to try it. When it came out, it was in a brandy snap net and when you crack it opened, the parfait was sitting there. I found it quite lovely with a sweetness to it. I did wish that they toasted the bread a little bit so that there was a crunchiness to it.
Parfait – $19
Chicken liver, Hilldale marmalade, brandy snap
Just to top it off, I got a croquette and when this came out, it looked like a little snowman. Saaah cute! I quite enjoyed this but it did need a touch of seasoning to it though.
Croquettes – $2.50 each
Provolone, Manchego, romesco
Finally for dessert I got a truffle and my gosh was this super duper rich. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the one for you. I would have liked perhaps a scoop of ice cream on the side. Better yet, have a cup of coffee or tea with it.
Truffle – $3
Peanut praline, chocolate
Supper Lane is a great place for snacks and drinkies and I didn’t get a chance to check out the main dishes. Some dishes were great, others were average but overall, I did enjoy the atmosphere. Bonus points for being a 2 minute walk from my hotel!
