We were over the moon to win an award at the 2016 Living North Awards, hopefully the first of many!
We had been nominated in the category of ‘Informal Dining of the Year’ but in the illustrious company of such regional favourites as Cal’s Own, Ernest, Scream for Pizza, Fat Hippo, Riley’s Fish Shack and others, a win was by no means certain.
So you can imagine our surprise when our name was called! Here’s what the good people at Living North had to say about us;
“Having grown to dominate the street food scene with their command of Middle Eastern flavours over the last five years, Papa Ganoush’s plans for expansion into a permanent home in Whitley Bay in 2017 shows how much innovation, application, and a love for great food is appreciated in the North East. With their constant experimentation and refinement, plus a real sixth sense for knowing what its customers want, Papa Ganoush are showing the way forward for all new street food start-ups.”
A big thanks to all at Living North and those who nominated and voted for us. We have worked so hard to get Papa Ganoush to where it is today and to see our dreams of having our own restaurant taking shape so it’s really great to be recognised and appreciated for that.
