In nature, carnivores are not generally known for their selfless goodwill, which explains why very few cheetahs run 5Ks for charity and why alligators rarely volunteer as lifeguards. Do your part to combat these labels with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of fresh halal meat, kebabs, curries, bread, and more at Salem’s Market and Grill, located in the Strip District.
Salem’s Market and Grill is a tasty flavor oasis for the ethical meat eater. Using local and halal proteins butchered fresh each morning, Salem’s offers up a spicy menu of Mediterranean and Near Eastern entrees alongside hummus, falafel, libyan soup, and other scrumptious sides made from scratch. Diners who dare can sample the zesty tandoori chicken ($6.99) or drink deeply from a bowl of mildly spiced curry swimming with fresh lamb or goat ($6.99). The flavorful juices of lamb, beef, and chicken are locked in however they’re prepared, whether on the broadswords of grilled kebabs ($6.99–$7.50), dripping off the spit as shawarma ($6.99), or fused into a tender crime-fighting supermeat with the aid of their magic rings. All dishes are served with mountain of basmati rice and a side salad.
Diners at Salem’s can enjoy their culinary concoction at one of several tables that provide excellent views of the market’s fresh-baked bread, desserts and sweets, and savory selection of delicious meats. Salem’s Market and Grill is a full-service butcher shop selling fresh, local halal slices of beef, lamb, veal, goat, and chicken. Custom orders are available on request, and experienced butchers can guide customers through dressing, preparing, interrogating, and cooking any cut of meat.
