Brighton for a while now has been well and truly ahead of the game when itcomes to offering a huge array of choice for those following a plant-based diet. So much so, that a day by the seaside simply isn’t enough to sink your teeth into the different options on offer in the form of vegan pizza, to creamy dairy-free icecream. If you’re planning a trip to the colourful little city this summer, here are a few of our must visits.
For plant-based pizza, Purezza should be at the very top of your list. Brighton born, it feels only natural to swing by, grab a table and dig into their wonderful sourdough vegan pizzas, or even take one to go. Best enjoyed on the beach, wethink. Pizza Face is also another great Italian option, also offering tasty vegan cheese.
Food for Friends is an iconic vegetarian eatery in the heart of Brighton, and is a fabulous place if you’re looking for slightly fancier meal. Take a short walk down the street and you’ll find Terre a Terre, with similar offerings, making it great for evening dining and special occasions.
Happy Maki, known for tightly packed, wonderfully fresh sushi burritos, often travelling around the country at various festivals and street feasts. We adore their Thai sweet potato roll, and the popcorn buffalo cauliflower is an absolute must try. We’re also funs of Loving Hut for more flavoursome Asian inspired dishes.
Boho Gelato, arguably one of the city’s best-loved ice cream parlours offer dairy-free flavours, perfect for long summer’s days by the sea. For juice and gloriously thick smoothies, Wolfox collaborate with 42 Juice serving your nourishing afternoon fix. We highly recommend their freshly baked bread, think Portobello mushroom stuffed sourdough bagels.
On the topic of carbohydrates, head to Infinity Foods health food shop if you’re looking to take home a selection of baked goods, from fluffy cinnamon buns to chocolate croissants. It’s the best vegan wholesale food shop in Brighton, in our opinion, and could spend hours browsing the isles for tasty treats and natural beauty products. Infinity Kitchen is also a must visit for delicious plant-based food, and only a short walk away.
Whilst you’re wandering the lanes, Wai Kika Moo Kau (cleverly pronounced, “Why kick a moo cow”) is another great, easy vegetarian option, and a Larder; the cosiest little café, will warm you up with a glorious bowl of dahl. Lastly, Silo and their zero waste philosophy means you can eat with clear conscious and satisfied taste buds.
