Since Salam opened in 2016, they’ve become one of the best restaurants in Middlesbrough for diners looking to spice up a meal out. Taking their name and inspiration from the word which translates to ‘peace’, they aim to give their diners a relaxing dining experience. But most of all, they want to share the authentic flavours and dishes of Eritrea and Ethiopia.
Just a short walk from Hillstreet and Cleveland shopping centres, Salam makes for the perfect place to unwind after a busy day of shopping with the family or running errands in town. It’s also a wise pick for visitors seeking relaxed places to eat in Middlesbrough. They’ll find Middlesbrough Institute of Art and the train station both a ten-minute walk away.
The characterful family-run eatery may be one of the cosiest Middlesbrough restaurants around. Traditional artwork and colourful fabric curtains add to its rustic charm. Staff are very friendly and will be happy to recommend dishes to those that are new to African cuisine. Guests should look out for their impressive, traditional coffee ceremonies, which are highly recommended.
With a vast range of meat, fish, vegetarian and vegan options, Salam is a must for those seeking places to dine out in Middlesbrough with a crowd. Diners can expect huge buckwheat-based flatbreads that are perfect for scooping up their rich hummus, hearty stews and grilled meats and kebabs. Meat lovers will also appreciate their mixed grills which include lamb and chicken.
Diners looking for a culinary adventure through the dishes of Ethiopia and Eritrea won’t be disappointed with a meal at Salam. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can enjoy exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to a slice of cheesecake and coffee, extra sides or another round of drinks.
Please note: You must book in advance and mention the tastecard to be entitled to the discount.
