GREEK GRUB >>
Acropolis Greek Taverna, Middlesbrough
There’s no better place on Teeside to celebrate the launch of the brand new, sunshine-filled Mamma Mia! movie. Check in at Acropolis Greek Taverna on Linthorpe Road this July before catching the flick at Cineworld. Go here for a taste of gorgeous Greek dishes, straight from the streets of Athens. Expect hearty portions of traditional meats and spectacular seafood, and inventive veggie-based dishes. The menu is packed full of flavour; whether it’s lamb cooked in a traditional clay baker ’til melt-in-the-mouth tender, oven-baked seabass and aubergine, king prawns in Ouzo and garlic, or mounds of roasted Med-style veg. We’re feeling sweet about the new movie, so a visit without dessert is just impossible.
Dishes here are as authentic as-can-be; think party-sized platters and mezze feasts, showcasing traditional souvlaki, gyros, moussaka and homemade dips, roasted stuffed peppers, slow-cooked lamb and pulled pork pittas and sensational Greek-style salads with homemade tzatziki – the best we’ve tried. What a way to kickstart the Greek party in Newcastle as the feel-good film hits the cinema screens!
