Lucky Beach

OK, nuff’s enough. Lostincatering hasn’t even opened this yet (we have bought it though!).  So if you’ve got this far down the list then you’re officially in the circle of trust, Lucky Beach opens next summer, in the meantime its our HQ. Come and hang out and say hi.

Jolly Green Café

Andy, formerly the Head Chef of the pre-corporate Bills Café in Brighton – a game changer if ever there was one - has set up a new stall at the Brighton Farm Market on Friday and Saturdays.  Featuring incredible sculpted cakes and a selection of vegan and vege soups, salads and main.  Don’t miss the gado gado and grab a hot choc w hemp milk-barley and Madagascan vanilla.

The Trolls Pantry 

Paul Clark has moved to a permanent pitch in central Brighton at the Wood Recycling Store (until it gets bulldozed in a year). Hand pressed to order, grass fed 35 day aged longhorn burgers served up on homemade brioche buns with prices starting at 3.75, add incredible triple cooked chips, locally sourced everything, and you’ve got yourself a meal that rivals any of the new wave London burgeracs.  Opens at 10am which allows you to pre-lunch – result!

 
Brighton eating out

You’ve always had a special place in your heart for history’s great explorers.. 

The Magellans..

Ranulph Fiennes.. Gloria Hunniford..


The problem with all those guys, though, is that they never put enough emphasis on the food.


That’s how you’ll leave your mark


No more weekend trips to the beach. You’ve made your peace with that, time to see what’s happening in the real Brighton Food scene.

Tookta’s

Situated in someone’s front room in a small Victorian terrace off Western Road is one of Brightons favourite restaurants (TripA). Thai classics are served up here, its not Pok Pok, but not everyone can be on the ground floor of that movement. Its cheap, quality’s good and service is off the scale.

Red Roaster

Whilst not wanting to get involved in a coffee-off, it seems that one of Brightons oldest independent roastery’s is still the best – Red Roaster, on St James St.  Serious fanatics mix with normal folk, roasting carries on at the back, poetry nights (!), great hot choc, queues, and most people seem to think its called Rooster?   And a quick mention to the runners up.. Coffee @33 seems a little Fernandez & Wells/Monmouth.. nothing wrong with that, generally packed.  Marwood is a must visit if just for the decoration.

Unithai Oriental Market

Yes, technically this is a supermarket, But its what happens behind the supernoodles that is of interest.  In a small room at the back of the shop, Mr & Mrs Pong are dishing up 10 or so specials every day using the ingredients that surround.  About as close as you’re going to get to an authentic Thai dining experience this far south, its not licensed so you can bring a bottle.

Iydea

If you’ve got the guts to name a restaurant this badly, you’d better be good. And fortunately they are, These guys can’t stop winning awards, the latest being best Café in Brighton & Hove and the Vegetarian Society’s National Best Eating Out award.  So we’re going to cut them a bit of slack.  No menu’s, changes daily, canteen style, you’re doing your body a favour, price is low and it tastes great. Their second outlet is in fit-out on Western Road.  You’ve got two other fantastic vege options.. Terre a Terre is the best known, reopens soon after a little kitchen fire mishap.  And Food for friends just won best restaurant in the Brighton & Hove food awards, again worth a trip

BBQ Shack

If you like the sound of eating at the home of the Grand Champion of the British BBQ Society’s Pitmasters Competition (John), listen up.  The 14-hour pit-smoked hickory and apple-smoked North Carolina pulled pork sandwich first caught our attention. The menu goes from burrito’s to chopped BBQ ribs, and then some. Located above the Worlds End pub on London Rd, and delivery available.

Bardsley’s

For the best fish & chips steer clear of the seafront. Head out of Central and you’ll soon reach Bardsley’s. Once there swerve the standard repertoire and dig into the specials.. from Cornish Blue shark steaks to Scarborough fresh-dressed crab, the range of fish is impressive and the quality fantastic.  The fish is all sustainable and you can bring your own booze.

La Choza

Small shop space down from the station serving up Brightons best Mexican steet food.  You’ll recognise the set up,, choose between burritos, tacos, quesadillas and tostadas before picking a filling and a sauce. All the options come in at just over a fiver and you can eat in, take a table outside or take out.

7 Bees Café

15 seater in the alleyway that stretches between Middle Street and Ship Street (one of the original Laines). Assuming you can find it, these guys are famous for the best English breakfast in town.  Well sourced local ingredients, well priced (£5-7), no phone signal (hooray!) and some wifi. 

The Tea Cosy

Originally a tearoom converted into a permanent memorial to Princess Diana.

Whether you opt for the “Princess Margaret Low Tea” or the “Lady Diana Spencer, Princess of Wales, Queen of Hearts, 10 year Anniversary, Your Death Has Torn Our Lives Apart, Fairwell Dear Princess Queen Of Hearts, Forever In Our Thoughts, Memorial Afternoon Tea”, you get that warm feeling that this isn’t a place where the word “no” is uttered a whole lot.A disquietingly comely drag queen may tend to your Balmoral or Prince Albert needs.   Just to be clear, that means she’ll serve you drinks.

Cave a Fromage

Eric and Amnon’s shop dishes up cheese to the likes of Le Manoir and Tom Aitkens, so you’re already thinking “lets cut them a break”. The shop has a small seating area where you can enjoy a selection of cheese, bread and wine and you can book in for tasting events to surf the range.  Hundreds of farmhouse cheeses, its worth a look.
