Burrito places may be springing up all over Brighton, but the best is still found at this vividly-decorated street-food nirvana. Choose fish, pork or shredded beef lovingly spiked with just the right level of spice.

OK it’s in Hove (actually) but this home-grown gastro pub is still well worth a visit. Go for one of the menu’s British classics with a twist and wash down with the best Martini in town. Cheers!

Lunch at Iydea

Look at all this food!

Chilli Pickle is an outstanding eat-in experience: but their takeaways take things to another level entirely. Basically restaurant-quality spice served up at your home, their Railway Trays burst with fragrant salads, delectable pickles and world-class curry.

Any combination of the lively kitchen staff’s forward-thinking small plates are going to be a big win here. Grab a cheeky glass of the local Ridgeview Rosé too if you’re feeling flush.

The Post Industrial Breakfast at Silo

Silo Brighton

With mushrooms grown from coffee waste and house churned smoked butter this fried brekkie is anything but everyday. And like everything at Silo, it’s made with a zero waste approach that’s green as well as bloomin’ gorgeous.

Better Batter at Terre a Terre

Anyone for soft buttermilk-soaked halloumi dipped in real chip shop batter with vodka-spiked plum tomatoes? So damn good you don’t even need fish…

The Dead Hippie Burger at Meat Liquor

The spirit of Hunter S Thompson lives on at this loud, neon-drenched sister venue to the original London beef ’n booze success story. Each burger is made with real local hippies, for extra bite.

Ice cream at Boho Gelato

Ditch the seafront’s sad-looking 99s and instead head for Brighton’s Don of handmade Italian ice-cream. Stuck for a flavour? The Strawberry, Basil & Black Pepper Sorbet is a summer stand-out.

Fish and chips at The Regency

Retro way before it was cool, this eccentric Brighton eaterie ain’t the venue to sample the latest foodie trends. However, if it’s cheap ‘n cheerful old school fish dishes that you’re after: get in there.

Bagels at The Bagel Man

This authentic Brighton indie bakes locally and makes a tasty selection of deli-style sarnies by the sea. The Jalapeno bagel is definitely worth a whirl.

The Tofu Unagi Don at Pompoko

Cheap, fast and filling, Pompoko is the place to get fuelled up on Westernised Japanese grub before heading off to a gig or show.

Pizza from PizzaFace

Pizza Face

Proper moreish artisan pizza just like your East London-based hipster brother reckons you can’t get outside Dalston. Features plenty of great vegan options because, y’know, this is Brighton, people.

This unpretentious burger joint is far too cool to shout about its food. Luckily the burger-lovin’ people of Brighton have been happy to, and turned it into a word of mouth hit. Even if they don’t do chips.

The Gut Buster at Market Diner

That's a gut buster from the market dinner. #nostalgia

This legendary all-night café has been cramming carbs into insomniacs, drunk clubbers and weary cabbies since before time began. The Gut Buster is its zenith: an artery-clogging breakfast with eggs, bacon, chips and black pudding that should feature a cigarette pack-style health warning.

Veggie Sunday Roast at The Prince George

Meaty Sunday Roast at The Sussex Yeoman

Yesterday lunch. The roast dinner voted the best in Brighton

This one needs a bit of forward planning: it may be a pub but you need to book a table. Then just turn up on Sunday for a restaurant-quality free-range roast featuring locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. Outstanding.
