October Best 2017 | The Ginger Pig, Fatto A Mano & Fourth Church

I don’t think I’ll ever stop being nervous about writing on the topic of food that has been cooked outside of my own kitchen. My comfort zone is recipe blogging. I can talk to you ’til the cows come home about the shit that goes down in here without a care in the world, but when I sit down to tell you about food that I’ve eaten in the outside world, I freeze up a little bit. It’s a slightly different language, one that I’m not yet fluent in. However, it has to be done. Partly to yank myself out of that comfort zone, but mostly because there are some really amazing food experiences to be had in Brighton and I want to be able to tell you all about them. So, be patient with me while I try on the shoes of somebody that knows how to write about restaurant experiences..   This is the first year that October Best has been on my radar, cause I really don’t get out to restaurants all …

Dougbo at The Windmill

Review | Doughbo at The Windmill

Doughbo have left The Hobgoblin. For a couple of years they were in residence at one of my nearest and dearest boozers and despite my having initially been heartbroken that they were replacing The Troll’s Pantry, they quickly won me over with their delicious balls. Therefore, I wasted no time in following them to their new home at The Windmill a bit further into town – and found a new favourite early Friday drinking spot in the process.. Last Friday we found ourselves in town during a miraculously sunny window on a late September afternoon and it felt like the perfect moment to scope out Doughbo’s new place. Head up the road to the left of Argos and you should see it straight ahead, tucked away behind Western Road. When we wandered up to the bar, my eyes landed immediately on the sign pictured above and I knew we were among friends. £3 for a glass of Prosecco in a Brighton pub? On a Friday? Sign me up. The lady behind the bar asked us …

Review | Purezza, Brighton’s Vegan Pizzeria

In January of last year, I reviewed a brand new vegan pizzeria that had recently set up shop on St. James Street. They were starting out strong and just beginning to make a name for themselves in the local plant based community. Fast forward almost two years and I’ve popped in to see what’s new..   My, how things have changed. First, the interiors. You can’t see the way this place was originally decked out in my first review because I went through Deliveroo, but this is a vast improvement. The illustrations on the walls and menus are stunning, the pizza paddles and pizza cutters dotted about the place and greenery in between booths are both lovely touches and the colour scheme is to die for. It’s a beautiful, well lit venue to while away a couple of hours in. The other point I must touch on before we discuss the food is their popularity. In the months since we last talked about Purezza, they’ve blown up. Vegans make pilgrimages from across the country – …
