During our recent day trip to Brighton, I was very excited to head back to my favourite vegetarian restaurant, Terre à Terre. Although quite pricey for Brighton standards, I have great memories of coming here with friends during uni and having the sharing platter as an entire meal – both because that was all we could afford and because it was plenty of food!
It’s a bit of a shame that they’re renovating the outside as I completely walked past the restaurant twice without spotting it, but once we finally walked in, I was immediately making Christmas lists from their wall of local honeys, oils and jams.
In order to not break tradition, we started with the sharing plate of baba ganoush, rice balls, fried tofu, kale, polenta fries… The list goes on. It was absolutely amazing but a rookie’s mistake as we were both completely full after this alone.
This was swiftly followed by a main of gluten free Thai rice balls on a peanut and kohl rabi salad which I still managed to finish somehow. Boyfriend on the other hand, went for the battered halloumi which was not amazing. It was nice how they made it look like fish & chips but it was very heavy and quite plain, especially compared to the dish that I ordered.
Overall, the meal as a whole did not disappoint. I wouldn’t recommend going for the battered halloumi but everything we saw on other tables looked amazing too. Friendly staff, organic beers, delicious wine, delicious food… We’ll be back soon 🙂
