Off she travelled to spend the weekend in Dublin for a friend’s hens party, and with her went the sunshine. Literally. The clouds rolled in and the lonely trio of Robert, Tyler and Tamara sat and wondered what to do with the gloomy day…
We decided to eat, which is unsurprising, really, as we have already established this is our default Brighton setting. There is just such a range of fantastic food on offer here, including some of the finest burgers we’ve ever tasted, a wide variety of great vegetarian and vegan places (that Robert refuses to attend on principle), some delicious Italian and French cuisine, and many more options that have depleted our bank accounts and blown up our bellies. Number #30 on We Love Brighton’s 50 Things to Do in Brighton list is “Fill Your Face at the Street Diner”, so we loosened our belts and off we went.
The Street Diner is a weekly street food market, running every Friday from 11am to 3pm. Nestled in the cosy greenery of Brighthelm Park, the Street Diner is a bustling hub of food stalls offering various sweet and savoury treats from around the world. The range of smells in the air was overwhelming and mouth-watering, and there was a real sense of community as people browsed through the available culinary delights and settled to eat in the surrounding parkland. Tamara chose to feast on a naked burrito from Deadgood Burritos, praising the “really, really yummy” meat and the nice balance between the spicy sauce and the avocado. All in all, it was, in her own words, a “multiple-flavour sensation”. Robert ate a Japanese omelette that he described as “eggy”, but looked delicious! Tyler ate Beef Shin Chilli Cheese Fries from the Fries Guys, who also had a stall outside our performance venue at The Warren on opening night of Point & Shoot. His verdict? “Fries are already perfect, so it is hard to improve upon them. But these are pretty darn good.”
And then we rolled home and never ate again…or at least for the next half hour.
