Best Bites on a Budget CategoryBRAVO award winners 2017: Best Bites on a Budget

Sponsored by Brighton & Hove Food Partnership

Looking for the best quality food at fantastic prices? Be it a quick nibble to go or a full on meal – we’ve got the shortlist of who does it best on a budget, all voted by you!


1. BeFries

Flying in to claim the top spot in our Best Bites on a Budget category are masters of the saucy chip, BeFries! If you’d have told us last year that a venue specialising in fries would win we’d have laughed our way to McDonalds, but these are no ordinary fries – these are double cooked, Belgian fries with a huge range of homemade sauces, including satay, jerk and even a chocolate and caramel combo – ‘Chocomel’! Well done guys – you’ve smashed it!

2. La Choza

Everyone’s favourite pre-pub grub and the venue with possibly the longest wait in Brighton on a Saturday night, it’s no surprise the public have voted La Choza as one of their top 3 budget bites. Offering a mouth watering menu full of burritos, tostadas, tacos and plenty of daily specials, whether you are eating at their flagship restaurant in the North Laine or alongside a pint at the Hare and Hounds, this Mexican has tasty dining locked down – with a very reasonable price tag.

3. Pompoko

It’s a rare sight to walk past Pompoko without spying a gaggle of students or hungry patrons queuing up outside, and the reason? It’s a super-cheap and damn tasty! This small, independent Japanese restaurant takeaway is situated in the heart of Brighton’s bustling New Road area, opposite the Brighton Dome and specialise in quick service, Western-influenced Japanese dishes – most for under a fiver. To top it off they allow you to bring in your own booze, reducing your bill tremendously!
