Sunderland Restaurant Week 17th - 25th March 2018

Sunderland foodies, here's a date for your diary - Sunderland Restaurant Week returns on 17th - 25th March. I was invited along to sample a few of the restaurants ahead of next week and to share the fab deals with you. 

Burgers at The Engine Room

First up we headed along to El Nido on Frederick Street for cocktails and canapes. I fell in love with the cool decor, especially the gorgeous tiles at the bar. We were brought out lots of mini portions of meals from the main menu to sample, alongside a cocktail or two. Throughout restaurant week you can choose a starter and a burrito or two tacos for only £10. Add a side or a cocktail for an extra fiver.

We sampled starters and drooled over burgers at No2 Church Lane - opposite the theatre. There's the biggest choice of burgers I've ever seen on the menu here, with six vegan/vegetarian burger choices, too! You can grab selected burger and fries for only £5 during restaurant week, and you if fancy making a night of it you can have a starter, burger and fries, and a dessert for only £15. Such a bargain.

I was very excited to head along to our next stop to sample main courses - The Engine Room at The Fire Station. A newly opened venue which welcomed Prince Willam and The Duchess of Cambridge a few weeks ago. If it's good enough for royalty...
We sampled vegan curry (which was delicious), traditional fish and chips, and my favourite, a juicy burger. Great pub food in a very instagrammable venue. The restaurant week offer here, and at The Peacock, is three courses for only £15. 

Speaking of The Peacock, this was our last visit of the evening, for dessert. I had to nip off early to catch my metro but managed to devour a slice of delicious carrot cake and try some of the chocolate orange ice-cream and brownie.
