What to eat in Brighton right now!

You eat with your eyes, so the saying goes, and with the hashtag #foodporn having over 160 million posts on Instagram eating’s not all we appear to be doing. Beautiful food comes and then quickly goes, but a photo can last a lifetime (or not if you’re on Snapchat), so, as a snapshot in time, here’s the dishiest looking dishes in Brighton right now.

Etch, Church Road

Always serving up dishes that look way too good to eat, Etch strike again with this beautiful plate. Cured and blowtorched Mackerel, paired with gooseberry sorbet, fresh gooseberry & watercress puree.

MurMur, The Arches 

A taste of the sea at Murmur. Eat these fabulously fresh Poole Bay oysters overlooking Brighton’s West Pier. Add a glass of crisp white wine? Why not!

The Coal Shed

BBQ’ed pulled pork with pickled red cabbage and gherkins plus a side of beef dripping chips. Meat lovers, rejoice! We may have just found your new favourite burger.

Indian Summer

Onion, Carrot and Potato Pakoda is an Indian Summer favourite. Onion, carrot & potato mixed with gram flour and spices then served with coriander chutney and tamarind sauce. Get involved!

Grow 40

New and improved Grow 40 brings us brunch to die for. A Full English is always a winner and everyone has their own opinion about which is their favourite component. For us its the homemade baked beans served here, they are out of this world!

Renowned in Brighton for their fantastic grill menu options, LatinoAmerica also serve delicious puddings. One of our favourites right now is this one, flambé banana served with a rum syrup and ice cream.

Partial to a little spice? Lost Boys Chicken deliver every time with full, finger licking flavour and these wings on their summer menu feature a Honey Chipotle sauce. Don’t be shy with these!
