Review on Ury Restaurant
Located right on Newcastle's fashionable Quayside overlooking the River Tyne, it was the first branch of the innovative Rasa chain outside the environs of London, but it has now morphed into the Ury Restaurant. However its loyal following will be pleased to know that it is run by the same team.
Pre-meal nibbles come with homemade pickles and chutneys, and the full menu has stews for the Christmas and Easter festivities, tea shop snacks, classics from the 'toddy shops' and bars of the region and even famed recipes from individual families: Ms. Mariamma from Trivandrum contributes varutharacha meen curry (tilapia in a turmeric-tinged coconut sauce with tomatoes, curry leaves and mustard seeds).
Elsewhere, the choice of possibilities ranges from kathrikka (sliced aubergines in batter with tomato to chutney) to roast duck tharavu (a Kuttanadu Christian speciality spiked with ginger). Desserts include banana dosa (a rolled pancake) and to drink there are some decent wines as well as Rasa own-label beer.
