Having spotted Nosh earlier in the day whilst going for lunch, we decided to pop back for dinner later in the evening. We had been drawn by the minimalist exterior and checked the menu outside. The menu had pictures alongside every menu item, so you could see exactly what you were getting. The menu items were also listed alongside their nutritional information, as well as a key showing which items were wheat-free, dairy-free, vegan etc. It was quite nice to see that most of the items on the menu were vegetarian and there was definitely a wide range of options for those with dietary requirements.
Nosh has been open for around a year now, and is opening another store in Stockton – about a 10 minute walk from Durham Uni’s Queen Campus – so their amazing healthy food is now available in multiple locations.
We decided to order two boxes and share a side of sweet potato wedges. I opted for the Grilled Patties – kale, spinach, courgette, soybean and barberry patties served with a tahini yogurt dip. The grilled patties were vegan, gluten free and dairy free. The patties were served on a large bed of salad. The dip itself was quite strong, definitely for those that are a fan of tahini like I am.
He ordered ‘Mammas Meatballs’ – steamed Italian meatballs in a rich tomato sauce. The beef meatballs were lovely and you could taste that the meat was good quality. Again, it came on a large bed of salad, which really bulked out the meal. The tomato sauce was delicious, and we were very glad that we ordered the sweet potato wedges to mop up the sauce
The sweet potato wedges were deliciously soft – the menu said these were spiced but ours were a bit on the mild side, however this was a good thing as it meant we could dip them in the strong tahini dip!
The interior was delightfully hipster, matching the minimalist exterior. Nosh is found on Linthorpe Road, only a few minutes from the centre of town and since they’re available on Just Eat it means you don’t even need to leave the house to get delicious healthy food!
(The closest thing comparison we can make for Nosh is that it’s similar to is Leon, a chain in London and now in Birmingham.)
