The Boiler Shop Steamer is a event that happens on the first Friday and Saturday of each month in Newcastle. Getting there was easy, deciding what I wanted to eat wasn't.
Just behind the train station (Sussex Street to be exact) is my warehouse of dreams.
R and I went there last Friday night. To be honest I didn't know what to expect, it was busier that I thought it would be and the food was just as good as I thought. If not better.
It's £5 each for entry.
I was like a child in a sweet shop what to go for first. R and I made a packed, we'll share everything we get so we can try as much as we could.
This is the best way to get to try and little bit of everything without getting too full too quickly.
You'll notice that there are no prices on the menus, it's all tokens. We exchanged our money for tokens on the way in. I think...but can't 100% remember that it is £2 for 1 token.
First up R got to pick being a lover of Indian food we went to On the Goa.
We joined the back of the queue and both decided upon the Chicken Baida Roti. It seemed like everyone else was waiting for that too.
Everything was made fresh right in front of us.
The wait was so worth it.
The chicken baida roti was beautiful. So much so that I had started to regret making the deal with R that we'd share everything.
Next up was the search for a drink. I stuck with prosecco. (Sticking to what I know and love).
R tried the Steamer larger. (Also sticking to what he knows and loves).
Now it was my turn to pick the food. Of course I went for Pizza!
Scream for pizza had their van there knocking out freshly made pizzas. We (I) ordered the Wor margarita.
It was beautiful. The pizza was so fresh and tasted amazing.
Pushing our way through the crowds we went to Claw hide grill for the flat iron steak sandwich.
The Steak sandwich was made to your liking right in front of you.
Perfectly cooked steak.
For the next bit of food I feel like I should do a little bit of a disclaimer. I don't eat meat off the bone, I'm not the keen on eating any part of a chicken that isn't a breast to be honest. When R said he wanted the chicken wings from Trial Shift I really wasn't that sold but I went along with it anyway.
I love the face at The Boiler Shop Steamer all the food is made in front of you and the Trial Shift did just the same. The Korean fried Chicken wings were made in front of me.
The wings were amazing. In fact amazing. Trail Shift were incredible. Something I'm going to be looking out for in the future. I would love to try some more of their food.
If R wasn't there I would never have tried them so doing the sharing thing was totally worth it in the end.
The Fat Hippo was also there but as I'd just been to their restaurant I just watched everyone else eat their burgers and love them as much as I did.
There were lot's of other stalls that I didn't get a chance to try.
If you're planning a trip to Newcastle I would wait till the first weekend of the month and without a doubt go to The Boiler Shop Steamer.
Next time I'm going to grab a bunch of friends and head down on the Saturday afternoon and make a day out of it. I have a feeling this won't be the last you'll see the boiler shop steamer on Katie Jane Online.
