“The menu we have designed for the seven-day event is a showcase of Turkish cuisine packed full of fresh ingredients and, of course, dishes cooked on our charcoal grill, which adds even more flavour to our food.”

Turkuisine is one of more than 20 restaurants taking part in this year’s South Tyneside Restaurant Week, which also includes venues in East Boldon, Hebburn, Cleadon, Jarrow and South Shields.

Participants in the event, designed to encourage foodies to try something new, will be offering their own special two-course set menus.

Coun Alan Kerr, deputy leader of South Tyneside Council, said: “Turkuisine is just one of the many restaurants across South Tyneside that makes up the borough’s diverse restaurant scene, and we are delighted to have them on board for South Tyneside Restaurant Week.

“I am sure visitors will thoroughly enjoy sampling the rich flavours Turkish cuisine is renowned for, as well as the wide variety of special menus on offer across the borough.”
