We all know fish and chips on the beach is a winning combination, however Brighton’s street food scene has a lot more to offer than the traditional dish. Whether you fancy Mediterranean, Turkish, Indian, burgers, fries or falafel, Brighton’s multitude of variety will leave you spoilt for choice. From the various pop-up food stalls, to Street Diner’s weekly lunches, we’ve compiled a list of 10 events, stalls and places to visit when your stomach starts rumbling.
Every Friday from 11am – 3pm, a collection of local, sustainable food stalls pop up on the green on the corner of Queens Road and Church Street. Grab yourself a tofu burger from Vegan Earthlings, or a more traditional fish and chips from Olly’s Fish Shack. From burgers to burritos to brownies, there really is something for everyone.
