Brighton is a haven for great vegan food leaving us pretty spoilt for choice. So if vegan cuisine is your thing or you just fancy giving it a go, where should you go out of all the places to eat in Brighton? We spoke to Jasmine, lifestyle, fashion and food blogger from “Oh Hey There!” to find out the best places to eat in Brighton.
Food for Friends has been serving up gourmet vegetarian and vegan food for over 30 years now and never fails to amaze! They are always coming up with new amazing dishes and it is must to visit if you are in the area. Not only is the food delicious but the staff are lovely and very knowledgable.
Recommended dish: Sharing Platter for Two.
The Prince George Pub, Trafalgar Street, is a vegetarian pub that serves amazing food but the absolute best Roasts!! My favoutite is the Mushroom Wellington, pictured above. I don’t actually like mushrooms but somehow this still manages to be one of my favourite meals ever. You will find me here on any given Sunday stuffing my face with a giant grin. This is by far the best vegan roast I have had in Brighton and not only that but also the BIGGEST. Congrats if you finish it!
Recommended dish: Sunday Lunch.
Pompoko, Church Street, has been a firm favourite of mine for years. So many amazing vegan options and their tofu is cooked to perfection. It’s incredibly budget friendly with the average price of a vegetarian/vegan main being about £4.50. Although relatively small, meaning you have to wait for a table, the service is speedy and the food, delicious.
Recommended dishes: Yubamaki & Tofu Chilli Don.
VBites, East Street, has been a staple for vegan food for a while now. Since moving right into the heart of The Lanes I have been here a lot. Vbites, formally The Redwood Wholefood Company, have their own range of foods that are used in the restaurant and you can also buy in shops. They are great if you are looking for ‘mock meat’ style food and their burgers are fantastic. They also have freshly baked cakes and desserts daily.
Recommended Dish: Vegan Donner Kebab (one of their alternating specials)
Next up Creperie, Ship Street, isn’t necessarily aimed at vegan’s but their savoury crepes are vegan and they have a range of fillings to choose from, with a little editing. The reason they are on here is that they are really flexible, suggest options and are willing to accommodate different dietary requirements. Creperie is also great to go to with non-vegan friends and is quite different from the rest on the list. Not only that but it is so beautifully decorated inside and a lovely place to wile away a few hours on a Sunday morning.
Finally Beelzebab at The Hope and Ruin, Queens Road. The people at Beelzebab have recently taken over the kitchen at the Hope and Ruin. Loaded fries, Kebabs and Hot Dogs make this a junk food fans dream! Their speciality is their vegan kebab but everything on the menu is delicious and worth giving a go, especially the loaded fries.
