Review | The Chilli Pickle Set Menu

I worry that I’m becoming notorious for not having been to all the really cool places that come highly recommended by Brighton’s biggest food enthusiasts. I’ve been insanely late to the party with pretty much all notable restaurants in this city, and I still haven’t made it to most of them. This was, believe it or not, my first ever visit to The Chilli Pickle. I am, however, beginning to develop a taste for eating out like never before – which perhaps has something to do with how much I enjoy the company of my partner in crime – so reviews are set to become a bigger part of Cate in the Kitchen than they have been previously. Anyway, enough about my inadequacies, you’re here to learn more about The Chilli Pickle. After smaller beginnings in Meeting House Lane, they’ve been at their larger Jubilee Square venue for three years now and done very well there indeed. They’re multi award winning, and literally just last night won the Indian episode of Best British Takeaways. In short: they’re a …

Dumplings Takeaway Brighton Deep Fried Shredded Chilli Chicken

Dumplings: A Pretty Good Chinese Takeaway In Brighton

Ordering a takeaway round here – and, I presume, anywhere else – is a leap of blind faith. Spending almost £20 on food for just you (I only do it when I’m hungover, promise) is risky business. The pain when it turns out to be a bit shit is a real achey heart one, it cuts me deep when a takeaway doesn’t make me as happy as I was hoping it might. I’ve found a new place that isn’t shit, so I thought I’d let you know about it.   My go-to when fatally hanging was once Bhindi’s, for delicious delicious generic curry (korma, peshwari naan, bhajis and saag paneer in case any of you ever need to know my Indian order). Unfortunately for them and me, they keep failing their hygiene inspections miserably – and I mean miserably – so I can no longer enjoy any food from their kitchen, and really rather regret all the times I did before. In my fragile, sofa-bound, Bhindi’s-less state, I asked the world what their favourite takeaway was around here …

Saba Thai Vegan Takeaway in Brighton Review

Sabai Thai (Vegan Takeaway) Review

Quick note: I apologise for the poor quality of photography in this post, it’s dark at night time, my kitchen is poorly lit, life is what it is. I thought you could handle crappy photographs for the sake of finding out what a vegan takeaway is like. Last night I felt a bit miserable. Lacking in both desire to go out and shop for food and creativity to rustle something up from the bizarre ingredients that I had floating around, it was time to make good on my promise to try the vegan side of the Sabai Thai menu. You guys know I’m a bit rubbish at writing about food that I didn’t cook, it’s just not my jam, but I’m hoping you’ll get the gist. Ruam Mit Shub Pang Tord (Thai Tempura), £4.95  My god these veggies were good. I’m going to ask Emily if she can teach me how to do the whole tempura batter thing so that I can eat this exact thing again ASAP. The veg wasn’t mushy at all, particularly …
