Blossoms Indian Cafe – Byker

The last place you would expect to go for a ‘Sunday dinner like grandma used to make’ would be an Indian cafe, my grandparents are not Indian yet the Sunday dinner tastes exactly the same as it did when I used to visit for my Sunday roast.

£4.oo doesnt get you much these days but what it does get you is a home cooked roast at Blossoms.

I went for the Roast Beef which was served with mashed and roast potatoes, mashed swede, cabbage, cauliflower, carrots, peas and a huge yorkshire pudding.

Mr Gourmand had the Roast Pork which was served with the same vegetables.

The Sunday dinner comes in small and large, believe it or not we had the small! There is more than enough to keep the hungriest of diner satisfied, please don’t go to Blossoms expecting luxurious surroundings with cotton napkins because it’s not that sort of place, if you like cheap, delicious home cooked food this is the ideal place for you.

Blossoms Cafe is situated at 111-113 Shields Rd, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE6 1DN



Sunday Lunch at No28

After some very good food served at No.28 (you can read about it here) we decided to make an effort to visit for Sunday lunch

No28 is situated on 27-29 Nelson Street right in the centre of Newcastle city centre.  It’s a little hidden gem with quirky furniture and fantastic food.

A Sunday lunch at No28 costs £7.95 which is great value for money for a home cooked no frozen veg meal.

Mr Gourmand had the Roast Pork which came with apple sauce and crackling, it’s a meat he doesn’t get to eat at home so whenever possible he will usually choose it as a Sunday Lunch meat.

I picked the Roast Beef which was delicious and melted in the mouth.  We both had carrots, savoy cabbage, broccoli, green beans, Roast potatoes, Mashed Potato, Mashed turnip, Roast Parsnips and a huge Yorkshire pudding.

I couldn’t finish my meal so Mr Gourmand helped himself to my Parsnips and Roast potatoes.  My only criticism with my food was that it was a little salty, Mr Gourmand hadn’t noticed this with his meal but after tasting mine he did agree that either the gravy or mashed potato tasted like salt had been added to it.
