Imagine a place with street food from around the world, I mean literally! From KFC and I mean Korean Fried Chicken of course, to a massive 12 inch Greek Gryos or if you are feeling saucy, perhaps a delicious Chicken Katsu curry!
Allow me to introduce to you, Canaca, a vibrant spot smack in the middle of Newcastle Upon Tyne, just off Northumberland street at the bottom of Saville, filled with your street food desires.
You are greeted with vibrant interior decor, very street art like yet

Bring your friends and children, come in after Uni or work, indulge with a spot of people watching and do as the locals do – eat and cheers!
Let me know which one is your favourite!
