Brighton does eating out so well, in my opinion. When you visit some areas, places that stand out are hard to come by. Brighton offers this amazing vegetarian restaurant however called Terre A Terre. I had been there before on a previous trip to Brighton and couldn’t wait to go back again. It is definitely a special treat kind of place. We celebrated our 7 year anniversary there and it was the perfect place.
What is so great about Terre A Terre is the fact that the menu is so inventive. It is not just the obvious vegetarian options. I’m not a vegetarian but I’m pretty much one so I found this type of food right up my street. They also had plenty of vegan options!
Options on the menu range from Korean Fried Cauliflower to Aubergine Dengaku. It really is a mouth-watering menu. We had the following to share…
BETTER BATTER AND LEMONY YEMENI RELISH (starter)
This was a buttermilk soaked houlloumi battered dish with tartar sauce, tomatoes and lemony Yemeni relish. Purely divine.
SNEAKY PEEKING STEAMERS (main)
Steamed Szechuan mapo tofu buns with ginger bok choy, kimchi Chinese cabbage, lapsang souchong pickled watermelon & cucumber, a miso chilli sauce and spring onion garnish. This was vegan and absolutely delicious! I just love this type of food.
ROSTI REVISITED (main)
Potato rosti with buttered spinach, poached egg, creamy garlic sauce, and a mustard rarebit topping. The presentation and taste were just a step above!
SNAP, CRACKLE AND CHOC (dessert)
This vegan dessert was out of this world. It was extremely rich so I would recommend sharing! The 70 % hazelnut cream cacao mousse lay on a crisp praline and chocolate shortbread. All was embellished with a clementine sorbet, mini pink pepper berry aqua faba meringues, chocolate crack shards and dusty Satongo twigs.
We were so full afterwards but I’m so glad we went. It is by far my favourite place to go for dinner in Brighton. Although the service can be a little slow at times, the staff are friendly and welcoming and have great knowledge of the amazing dishes on the menu.
