Brighton Foodies Festival 2014

I think I may have just been to heaven and back. This Bank Holiday weekend, the Foodies Festival is in town, and I was lucky enough to visit it this afternoon. If you’re looking for a sign to make the most of your free day off tomorrow, this is it. Tickets are still available for tomorrow (Monday 5th May) on their website here, they’re available on the door but the queue for on-the-door-ers was insane so I was thanking God for my pre-booked reference number as I approached the entrance.

To see all the pictures I took at the festival, click here, but this post will take you through my highlights.

Music

band

 

The first thing that hit me as soon as I walked in was the band, I don’t know who these guys are (if you do, let me know in the comments!) but they were excellent.

Drinks

If you’re a regular visitor to this blog – or have ever met me – you’ll know I like a drink, so I have two alcohol highlights, narrowed down from four alcohol experiences, sue me.

The Bus Bar

Yep, that’s an old London bus converted in to a bar with seating on the top deck. Best idea ever. 

The Bloody Mary Bar

A little steep at £6 but the sun is shining, you’re at a food festival and you’re having a good time, just go with it.

Food

The smells throughout this place were just insane, you’ve got to check out the flickr album to see all the amazing stuff thats on offer, but here’s what I was lucky enough to sample..

Dragons Noodle Bar

I went for the sweet chilli chicken noodles, a-maz-ing. For a noodle bar, I was genuinely surprised at the perfection to which the chicken was cooked. Also, it came in those cute little cardboard boxes they have in American TV shows.

Churros

Had never tried them before, I now see what all the fuss is about. I don’t think I need to say alot about these bad boys, just look at the picture. These were courtesy of Churros Garcia, check them out here.

 

Produce

And that’s what I came home with. Look out for the macaroons, they’re out of this world, I recommend the pistachio flavour. I went for local honey (the best antidote to hay-fever), smoked garlic oil, mango hot sauce and some lovely cheese.

If you’re in Brighton this weekend, there is no excuse not to go, tickets are £12.50, get ’em now!

Thanks for reading x
