10 OF THE BEST Meat-free restaurants in Brighton and Hove
Sussex Life|November 2020
Brighton is often rated one of the most vegan-friendly cities in the UK. What these restaurants prove is that plant-based food doesn’t have to be puritanical – at all of these places you’ll find big flavours and a desire to push the envelope

TERRE À TERRE

The sublimely inventive food at long established vegetarian institution Terre à Terre is so good it even convinced the late AA Gill, a committed carnivore, who called it “singularly and eccentrically marvellous.” The owners say they want dining there to be about indulgence, and they succeed so absolutely that it’s easy to forget their forensic approach to ethical cooking and sourcing. We would recommend sharing the Terre à Tapas for a taste of lots of different dishes, but the buttermilk-soaked battered halloumi and chips is also heavenly. 01273 729051; terreaterre.co.uk

MANJU’S

Named after the owners’ mother, who dreamed of opening her own restaurant and finally achieved her aim at the age of 80, this is a delightful family-run place serving vegetarian street food in the Gujarati tradition. Sharing plates include mini masala dosa, paneer masala and bhel puri. The restaurant is tiny, so do book ahead if you plan to visit in the evening. 01273 231870; manjus.co.uk
