Marks & Spencer South Shields82 King Street, South Shields, Tyne and Wear, NE33 1JE
Quality is the name of the game here, and great effort goes into producing consistent products. Good salad leaves, pre-packed vegetables and trimmed meat. Their excellent selection of traiteur dishes include those from the Italy, the Far-East and India; unfortunately they are designed to be inoffensive so tend to hold the middle-ground in the flavour stakes. The basic range has recently been joined by one called Connoisseur, developed in conjunction with Albert Roux; this includes the likes of crab cakes with chili sauce and monkfish with sweet pepper - tasty, good value and convenient. They still produce the best chicken Kievs available; but, be careful not to buy the cheaper reformed meat version. Excellent party nibbles.
Perhaps their next efforts should be put into incorporating more free-range/organic/local products into their existing range.
