Brighton & Food
Brighton & Food was a polar food experience in terms of what I ate, the two times I visited the seaside town. First was a delicious vegan lunch at Root Candi, which I just found is sadly closing and the other was amazing seafood right on the beach. If I had to choose one, it would be the seafood just for the sun and wind on my face.
Root Candi is a slight detour from the road which leads from the railway station to the beach front, closer to the bandstand. Here we could either have regular portions or try multiple small plates in tapas style. I tried the mushroom risotto, potato dumplings, lasagna and stir fry tofu with glass noodles. While I was not a fan of the vegan version of lasagna ( I am in love with the regular fattening pasta), I absolutely enjoyed the rest.
On my second outing, I decided to indulge in some seafood at Sea Haze – a kiosk on the beach near the pier. The display alone was so inviting with everything looking so fresh. Taking my own sweet time I zeroed in on the cold prawn and mussels (promising myself that i would try the jellied eel next time) plonked myself on the bench with a few over-friendly seagulls giving me company.
