Durham's top 10 budget eats

The Guardian

"This Mediterranean bakery-cafe does a fine line in speciality breads, sandwiches, soups and salads, but it's Ciao Ciao's Greek foods, delicious little almond or honey biscuits, baklava and it;s feta pie that stand out.
That feta pie - known as spanakopita in Greece, borek in Turkey - is layers of crisp then yielding filo pastry, filled with spinach and a good, sharp feta. It makes an interesting, cosmopolitan alternative to its native North East cousin, the Gregg's cheese and onion pasty."

"Sitting at the North Road end of Framwellgate Bridge in an historic building that is now part of The Gates Shopping Centre, this cafe and deli is a haven of speciality foods with a Greek/Italian twist.

This Mediterranean mix is explained by the heritage of the owner, Andreas Souris, who is a mix of these two great food nations. His baklava, Greek spinach and feta pie, and Italian focaccia are the best you will get here or on the Mediterranean, and coupled with his infectious enthusiasm for his food, a visit is both tasty and entertaining."
