Brighton

Last month we spent a cheeky little weekend in Brighton. It’s been two years since our last family visit there and luckily we were blessed with good weather once again.

We took a trip in the i360, views were good but we went at peak time so the pod was full meaning you did have to loiter wait for others to finish taking in the view in certain sections to get a a full 360 view.

This would be amazing at sunset with a glass of bubbles or sunrise (I hear they do a yoga classes). Once you return to ground level be sure to check out the construction exhibition which also gives a little history about the West Pier.

Without fail in Brighton I always visit Boho Gelato. They are not 100% vegan…yet (they do have 2 stores in so it’s a possibility ;P), but they make amazing dairy free gelato. I also like that they don’t have a set menu so when flavours run out they are replaced by something different meaning flavours change daily and seasonally. With it being Easter they had some specials including a vegan cream egg which went down a storm with  everyone in the family. So much so, we went back for it again the following day, but alas it was sold out 🙁

I chose Moshimo for dinner, as they have such a varied vegan menu. I rarely get to enjoy such a selection of vegan sushi although I am more than happy with an avocado roll.

I was expecting the sushi to be the star of the evening but to my surprise the vegan duck yakitori stole the show. Incidentally next week they will be holding the annual The Great Moshimo Vegan Challenge, unfortunately I can’t make it this year ( I am determined to next year), it’s essentially a vegan sushi competition and has been running for 10 years now.

Our final day I left the fam to it on the beach and went on a mini mission to Eden Perfumes to pick up a birthday present.

It can be a bit overwhelming as they have a lot of fragrances, but you can prepare yourself as they make vegan organic alternatives of existing perfume brands so you will either know what you are looking for or can search by essence on their website before you head in.

Handily it’s right next door to Cornish Pasty Shop so obviously I had to pick up a vegan sausage roll.

Final stop for the drive home Happy Maki (located next to Boho Gelato and just around the corner from Terre Tere and What the Pitta!) – they have expanded the menu at their shop, so much so that I couldn’t decide what to get so I bought two, my usual plus a new flavour 🙂
