TGI Fridays

TGI Fridays

Living in Brighton, I don’t often go out of my way to a chain restaurant; so I was a little apprehensive when TGI Fridays got in touch*. Growing up I never had a TGI near me, so when I finally went to one when I was […]

October Best x The Chilli Pickle

October Best x The Chilli Pickle

As part of Brighton’s October Best restaurant festival, The Chilli Pickle have created Al and D’s Toddy Shop. Based on the roadside drinking shacks in Kerala, the dish reflects some of South India’s best street food and nods to the popular palm wine. Enormous platters […]

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

LOST IN THE LANES | Nile St, Brighton

After two and a half years, I still manage to take a wrong turn and get lost in Brighton’s twisting Lanes. Of course there are worse places to wander into, but I’ll often find myself passing through to get somewhere else. So I was pleased to […]

Curry Leaf Cafe

Curry Leaf Cafe

The majority of my friends and family will know that I grew up an incredibly fussy eater. The chicken nuggets kind of kid, that was me. But as I entered my mid-teens, I realised how much I was missing out. I was quite lucky then, when my […]

Pascere opens in Duke Street, Brighton

Pascere opens in Duke Street, Brighton

The Brighton food community has been all of a flutter once more with the anticipation of new restaurant, Pascere. In my short experience as a food blogger, it’s a funny thing being part of a food community. News explodes seemingly from out of nowhere, and […]

Pizza workshops at Franco Manca Brighton Marina

Pizza workshops at Franco Manca Brighton Marina

Master the art of sourdough pizza at Franco Manca! Franco Manca started life as a neighbourhood pizzeria in Brixton, London. You may remember, from my first review of Franco Manca when they opened in central Brighton last spring, that the establishment has undergone a swift upscale, growing […]

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

Mac Mondays | The Little Blue Smokehouse at Seven Stars

I only really discovered mac and cheese a couple of years ago. Since then it’s become a bit of an obsession, and something I definitely can’t resist when perusing a menu. What maniac can say no to a steaming bowl of pasta absolutely smothered in multiple cheeses? A crunchy breadcrumb topping? Maybe […]

Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

Rust Roasts | Sunday Lunch at Cafe Rust

Cafe Rust is one of those places I always meant to get around to visiting. Tucked in Preston Road, it sits in that strange part of town that actually hosts some of Brighton’s gems – think Señor Buddha, The Joker, Hare & Hounds and Fatto a Mano. […]

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

Afternoon Tea at The Salt Room

There has been a lot of buzz surrounding The Salt Room recently. Not only has the acclaimed seafood restaurant just celebrated its second birthday and been named in the Sunday Times Top 100, they also recently launched a rather unique Afternoon Tea experience. Yes you know, the […]

Doughbo

Doughbo

I wasn’t going to write a post about Doughbo because my photos are so dark. But a phrase popped into my head earlier – “something to write home about” – and I realised I absolutely had to mention them. Doughbo Episode I: In the beginning […]

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

Edendum | A Tasting Evening

You might remember my review of Edendum, a charming (and authentic) Italian in the heart of the Lanes. After a great first visit, I was super excited to be invited back for an evening of tasting. Pizza, prosecco and… more prosecco With Brandon in tow, I arrived to the familiar, […]

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

Cafe Chilli | Thai food in Brighton and Hove

As we entered 2017, I began compiling a list of all the places I had yet to try around Brighton. One restaurant I’d continually heard great things about was Cafe Chilli, so of course it was on there. Well you can imagine my absolute delight when […]

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

Dizzy Gull at Brighton Beer Dispensary

I’ve not had the pleasure of trying many roasts in Brighton yet. Now I’ve acknowledged that, I’m just realising how weird that is. Although it may have something to do with the insane amount of brunch I eat on a Sunday instead, so swings and […]

Bus Stop

Bus Stop

I don’t often race off to write a review barely hours after eating, but I really need to tell you all about Bus Stop. Have you heard of Brighton’s latest addition? Straight in from Barbados, Bus Stop brings Caribbean home cooking and cocktails to the […]

Edendum

Edendum

Brighton is known amongst foodies for struggling to provide on the Italian food front. There are plenty of big names and independents around, but rarely any that deliver in authenticity.  Now, I won’t ever claim to be an expert in Italian food, but I know when a restaurant tries to […]

Burger Brothers

Burger Brothers

I’m late the the party, I know. If you live in Brighton, you’ll already know about Burger Brothers. Whether you’ve tried them or not, I daresay you know a cult fan or two. But the cult has grown. Now, I’m known amongst my friends for […]

Nu Posto Lunch Review

Nu Posto Lunch Review

Nu Posto opened last summer down the somewhat shady West Street area, with promises of authentic Neapolitan pizza. Finally, it seemed locals had a reason to venture down that end in the middle of the day and not just to get to the beach. First experience […]

Tom’s Food

Tom’s Food

Last weekend, we took a little trip to Cuckfield in West Sussex to visit Tom’s Food, a café restaurant that I’ve had my eye on since discovering it on Instagram a few months back. Tom’s Instagram is a collection of his foodie creations, supper clubs and life […]

Grubbs

Grubbs

I’ve been a little absent lately amongst preparations for starting a new job and leaving another, but I’m back now with promises of being a better blogger and a review all about… GRUBBS. A big part of me thinks you’ll know it well. When I […]

The Troll’s Pantry

The Troll’s Pantry

The Troll’s Pantry has been on my burger list basically since we moved to Brighton, and I’m not really sure how we managed to go so long without trying one. I like saving places until the time feels right, and lately I’ve decided that my quest […]

Smashburger

Smashburger

What is Smashburger? Smashburger has been a hotly anticipated addition to the burger scene in Brighton; one which, unlike other American burger chains such as Five Guys and Shake Shack, many of us have not tasted or perhaps even come across before now. The brand […]

Fatto a Mano

Fatto a Mano

I’ve been saving a review of Fatto a Mano for quite some time, although I don’t really know why that is. Perhaps because this place is quite special to me and I wanted to do it right, or perhaps because every time I go I […]

MOD Pizza

MOD Pizza

For anyone keeping their eye on new restaurant openings around Brighton lately (and there have been a lot!), you may have heard a whisper or two about MOD Pizza. Another US food chain to arrive in the UK, MOD Pizza has chosen to open its […]

Street Thai | Brighton

Street Thai | Brighton

I feel like blogging has brought out a braver side in me recently. Once an incredibly fussy eater, and never one to walk into a restaurant that looked empty, my curiosity about trying new food and places for myself has taken over. I mean, I ate an Octopus […]

Polpo

Polpo

If you haven’t already heard of Polpo, then today I would like to tell you about it. And if you have, well then I trust that you’ll want to learn some more, so stick around 😉 Well-loved by Londoners and an immediate dining hotspot in Brighton, […]

Local Spot: The Crown and Anchor

Local Spot: The Crown and Anchor

As I’ve said before, sadly there isn’t much of a community hub in my local area, except a couple of pubs, a deli, a lot of estate agents and a Sainsbury’s Local. Consequently I spend most of my free time around other communities such as Sydney Street or […]

Señor Buddha

Señor Buddha

Almost a year ago, Señor Buddha popped up along the somewhat degenerate parade of shops in Preston Road to inject some new life into the street. The brainchild of owner Lee Shipley,  Señor Buddha is a celebration of two popular cuisines fused together: Spanish tapas fused […]

Pizza 500

Pizza 500

After almost 15 months of walking or bussing past it basically every day, Brandon and I finally popped in to Pizza 500 this week to see what’s good. First Impressions Pizza 500 nestles in amongst the houses on Preston Road and has the proper look […]

MEATliquor

MEATliquor

MEATliquor: Come hungry, leave wobbly. For anyone new to Brighton, or planning a visit soon, I think I should tell you about MEATliquor. Beginning in London with a burger van, the hype surrounding MEATliquor grew considerably in a short time, and they grew to set […]

NEW: Franco Manca Sourdough Pizza

NEW: Franco Manca Sourdough Pizza

Tonight I had the very exciting privilege of taking three guests for an evening of pizza trialling at the much anticipated Franco Manca, a Neapolitan style pizza restaurant opening on Regent Street in Brighton this Friday! When I heard Franco Manca was the latest Neapolitan style […]
