A DIP into the healthy food business has proved a success for a South Tyneside restaurant as demand for dishes soars.

Otto Restaurant first served a selection of ‘clean’ dishes after joining forces with Louise Scott from Witness the Fitness six months ago.

Introducing clean dishes onto our menu was something which our customers had asked for.

Since then, demand for its healthier options – which are fat and gluten-free – has taken off, with more people choosing the alternative.

Now, owner Carl Mowatt has revamped his menu, adding even more choice for those looking for a more healthier option when dining out.

The new menu has been put together with the help of fitness experts Miss Scott along with trainers Stacie Marshall and Clair Steinberg of S ‘n’ C fitness.

Mr Mowatt said: “The idea of introducing clean dishes onto our menu was something which our customers had asked for.

“A lot of them were taking part in training programmes, but also enjoyed eating out with their friends.

“We launched our first clean menu with a small selection of dishes which have proved extremely popular.

“Again after gaining feedback from our customers, the overall consensus is they want to see an even wider selection on our menus.

“The experts from the health and fitness arena have also fed into the type of dishes we should be having on our menu, bringing in the views of their clients”.

The new menu, which has also been endorsed by Kate’s slimming and fitness club, will be launched with a clean eating event taking place on March 29 at the restaurant based within the Hedworth Hall, in Dean Road, South Shields.

Tickets for the event are available now from the venue priced £15 and include sample dishes from the menu, a clean cocktail on arrival and entertainment from singer Carly McKeith.
