Written by
Teesside Photo of the month winner October 2014 - Geraldine Wilson

Here's this months winner and indeed the last winner of 2014 and final entry into our Teesside Photo of the Year! The winner this month was Terry Ferguson with this superb image taken in Albert Park, Middlesbrough. Congratulations to him!

Second place this month went to Stevie Russell with an image of the iconic Transporter Bridge. It has to be pointed out that only 4 votes separated these images and with only 10 minutes to go, they were on EXACTLY the same votes - it could have gone either way!

Cafe Ruma, Billingham

Cafe Ruma, Billingham

Huxley's Brave New World may or may not owe a debt to Billog's industrial past and the town's Picture House, which hosts our cafe, is on Mill Road is one of these start-up, boutique-style gaffs that Huxley could never have predicted a new town would accommodate in 2014.

Chorizo in brandy and red wine sauce isn't a traditional Teesside dish and neither is deep fried haloumi. I doubt soma or recreational sex could justify piri-piri mushrooms in the ICI canteen of old and we can only guess what they would have made of a tapas bar in the industrial vale. But let's not make generalisations.

Meze Lounge, Middlesbrough

Written by
Meze Lounge, Middlesbrough

Going straight to the top of the Trip Advisor charts for places to eat in Teesside upon opening is no mean feat, in fact it automatically makes me wonder whether Meze Lounge is a marketing strategy or a restaurant having done just that since opening in May.

A Gazette article from June sheds some light.

It’s all biased fanfare of course, thinly disguised back scratching tenuously dressed up to a football theme. Basically Bulent Yalcin is a first generation immigrant done good, professional footballer son, coaching pedigree himself (albeit York City juniors) and an engineering background. He’s teamed up with his mate Ozgur Burgaz who he’s known “five or six years” but it’s not clear what their business or cheffing acumen is. What could possibly go wrong. But for now, whether by hook or by crook, it’s the buzz place to eat on Teesside.
