Vegan Brighton revisited (food for friends & more)

12 September 2009

Yesterday was a lovely warm, sunny September day to visit the seaside and eat some tasty food at Food for friends.


Having arrived into Brighton just before 1pm there was only time for a brief walk around before it was time for FOOD!  When I first went to food for friends many years ago it was a self service veggie/vegan cafe with a chilled out, grab a table vibe.  These days, after the renovation it is now a veggie/vegan restaurant with waiters.

Drinks – home made lemonade, blueberry and pomegranate juice and an organic elderflower water.



Starter – a Thai platter to share

  • tom ka soup
  • mango salad
  • sweet potato & cashew fritters with lime salsa



This starter got 8.5/10 from us.


  • Chilli stuffed roasted pepper (vegan option) 9/10
  • Squash and red pepper parcel in a spicey tomato sauce  7.5/10



Lunch cost £40 plus service  which was very friendly.  The menu changes regularly so you can phone in advance to find out the vegan options. 


  • Chocolate cheese cake from Infinity food cafe £2.50 take away

I also picked up some smoked garlic, organic peacans and dried bananas.


There is a new fair trade shop, B Cause in Brighton, on Sydney Street.  It has only been open 8 months and has some lovely bags, t-shirts and jewellery.
