Time to celebrate one of the most important foodie days of the year – National Cheese Lover’s Day! Take a look at our tea-time guide to some of the best Sunderland restaurants serving up plenty of cheesy goodness this January!
808 Bar & Kitchen
Situated in the heart of the city centre, this vibrant bar and restaurant is a great spot to sample cheesy delights, washed down with cocktails. From gorgeous wood-fired pizzas oozing with creamy buffalo mozzarella, to their Cheesus Crust (a 12-inch pizza stunner that’s brimming with everything from Provolone, Gruyère, Manchego and goat’s cheese), there’s plenty on offer.
No 2 Church Lane
Stop by No 2 Church Lane for a trip to make your fromage fantasies come true. Don’t leave without trying their incredible loaded nachos – think crisp tortilla chips smothered in melted cheddar, topped with salsa, soured cream, jalapeños and a dollop of guacamole. Located in the beautiful minster quarter of Sunderland, make sure you give these cheese experts a visit tonight!
Port of Call
Port of Call is home to so many gorgeous cheesy delights, you’ll be spoilt for choice. But, if we had to choose, we’d always say yes to breaded brie burgers and chicken fajita parmos, topped with tons of fiery cheese, and the mighty steak and cheese sub. Think tender sliced rib-eye steak, topped with smoky chipotle mayo and layers of spicy cheese.
Roma Restaurant is a go-to for gooey, stringy treats this tea time! Recently voted one of the best Italian restaurants in Sunderland, expect the finest comfort food, cooked the proper way! Their homemade pancetta pizza is the perfect choice for brave cheese-fans, marrying together strong blue cheese with crispy pancetta for some bite.
The Engine Room
The Engine Room is serving up cheesy vegetarian goodness this National Cheese Lover’s Day in the form of a delicious grilled halloumi burger. A taste of summer on a winter’s night! Try it!
