SUNDERLAND’S FAVOURITE food spots are dishing up deals next month, when one of the city’s most popular events returns.

Sunderland Restaurant Week – which is organised by Sunderland BID and supported by Station Taxis – takes place from 12 to 20 March, with nearly 30 cafes and restaurants already signed up to the scheme. 

And pizza, pasta, tacos, burgers and more are all on the menu this year, with a range of offers available across the city for £5, £10 or £15 per person.

Venues preparing dishes for this year’s event include Angelo’s, Asiana, No2 Church Lane, Port of Call, 808 Bar and Kitchen, ENFES, Grannie Annies, Grosvenor Casino and Ttonic.

Hotel Chocolat, LayWawa’s, Seaburn Bay, Sunderland Bowl, The Keel Lounge, The Palm and The Old Vestry are also set to take part, with more venues to be announced in the coming weeks.

And a number of STACK Seaburn’s vendors have also joined the initiative this year – the first time many of them have taken part in the scheme.

Diners can enjoy discounts at favourites including Acropolis, Bao Down, Big Fat Indian Kitchen, Boojie Burger, Chapos Tacos, Downey’s, Healthy Thaim, Holy Duck, #PoshStreetFood, So Smooth Co, Yolo Coffee and Kitchen, Zza Pizzeria and The Little Cakery by the Sea.

Sharon Appleby, Chief Executive at Sunderland BID, hopes to see a big turnout to support local businesses.

“We are delighted to be hosting yet another Sunderland Restaurant Week and it is fantastic to see both familiar and new faces joining the event this year,” she said.

“We have a really incredible foodie scene in the city and the diversity of the cuisines on offer is a testament to this, so it’s an excellent time to try somewhere new.

“It’s great to be partnering with Station Taxis once again to help our diners plan their visits and it’s a great excuse to leave the car at home and enjoy a whole evening in the city.”
