The City I call home and one of the rising stars of the vegan food scene. If you like London but find it too crowded then Brighton is a great compromise. It’s very much like a ‘London by the sea’ and has so many great restaurants and cafes.
My favourite places in no particular order
Moshimo: Bartholomew Square, Brighton BN1 1JS (Map) | Website: https://www.moshimo.co.uk | Phone: 01273719195
When it comes to sushi in Brighton there is only one real option for many of the city’s residents. Moshimo Brighton is the premier sushi and Japanese restaurant, and one of the city’s most popular eating destinations. From the eye-catching architecture to the sensational sushi dishes, eating at Moshimo is an immersive experience that offers an authentic taste of traditional Japanese cuisine with a modern twist.Restaurants Brighton
If you love good Japanese food then you absolutely must visit one of my all-time favourite restaurants. It’s not all sushi and it has a classy feel while still making you feel right at home. The mock duck and sushi boat are a must, they’re amazing. This is how sushi should always be eaten when it looks this good.
My favs include the amazing sushi boat, wakame salad, vegetable tempura, Yasai vegetable katsu, Vegan kamo duck teriyaki, miso soup, edamame with salt and mochi rice cakes.
Purezza: 12 St James’s Street, Brighton, BN2 1RE (Map) | Website: http://purezza.co.uk | Phone: 01273 855845
Purezza (purity) was founded in 2015, becoming the first vegan pizzeria in the UK. We are plant pioneers, revolutionising Italian food through cruelty free ingredients. Our aim is simple: to make our plant based menu superior to the traditional alternatives.
We developed our pizza dough over many years, based on a traditional family recipe, as always, but with a twist. The dough is freshly made each day using a type 2 flour (much healthier than double zero flour) and matured for forty eight hours before being stretched and served. We also make dough using hemp flour, for an even healthier and refreshing alternative.
The ultimate carb lovers paradise, I have loved this restaurant for years since before their London branch existed. If cheese and pizza is your thing you’ll love it here and if not they’ve still got you covered.
My favs include cheesy dough balls, Philly cheesesteak calzone, here comes truffle & green supreme pizzas, karma cola, raw cheese platter, courgetti spaghetti, mac n cheese, oreo pizza and cashew dream dessert.
Green Kitchen: 8 Preston Road, Brighton, BN1 4QF (Map) | Website: http://www.greenkitchenbrighton.com | Phone: 01273 684158
Green Kitchen was opened in July 2016 after a conversation one evening led us to give up our day jobs and take the giant leap into making our idea a reality!
We’re a truly independent cafe, owned and run by vegan wife and wife team, Catherine & Katie. (With occasional ‘help’ from our rescue Staffie, Pickle).
Our aim is simple – to provide a varied range of great vegan food in a friendly, inclusive and welcoming environment. We’re dog-friendly too!
This lovely little cafe is tucked away by Preston Park and has some of the best food in Brighton. They even make and sell their own bacon! Which is amazing btw (some of my fav vegan bacon). They do everything from a Sunday roast to burgers and pancakes. The full English or the Sunday roast and my favourite juice (Carrot, apple, beetroot & ginger) are what I usually stop in for. They usually have some delicious sweet treats from Rosina Makes at the counter as well which I can never resist.
My favs include blt & chips, roast dinner, fresh juices, full english, burger and chips and rosina makes treats.
