RECORD SHOPS

 

RESIDENT

http://www.resident-music.com/contactus

Voted one of the best Record Shops in the UK. It has a great selection of current and classic releases covering all genres. They have great descriptions on all the vinyl and CD's and plenty of bargains too. 

 

RARE KIND

http://rarekindrecords.co.uk

New and second hand music. I know a few people who have sold their quality Hip Hop records here so if you are after some good Hip Hop and related genres then definitely pop in.

 

ACROSS THE TRACKS

http://www.acrossthetracksrecords.com

When I first started DJing in Brighton this is where I built up a lot of my collection of funk, jazz and soul. A good place to dig in the crates.

 

FOOD

 

THE TROLLS PANTRY

http://www.thetrollspantry.co.uk

This serves some of the best burgers I have ever had. This is a seriously good burger, street food style (so wrap up warm when it is cold but worth it). Freshly made, locally sourced and unique flavours. Highly recommended and addictive.

 

INFINITY

http://www.infinityfoodsretail.co.uk/shop/

Based in central Brighton. The bakery at the back has tasty vegetarian pizzas. 

 

CAFE PLENTY

https://www.facebook.com/cafeplentybrighton

Near to the Tru Thoughts office so we all go in there regularly. Great quality and tasty food and salads and juices.

 

SHANDAZ

http://www.shandizpersian.co.uk

One of my favourite places to eat in Brighton. Very tasty kebabs at a great family run place. Takeaway, delivery or eat in.

 

CHILLI PICKLE

http://www.thechillipickle.com

Quality Indian food with a modern twist. It can get quite busy so probably best to book a table.

 

ALFRESCO

http://alfresco-brighton.co.uk

Delicious Italian food. Fish, Seafood and Steaks are recommended as is the delicious Tiramisu.

 

BURGER BROTHERS

Up there with one of the best burgers I have had. Highly recommended.

 

THE ORANGE BUFFALO AT THE JOKER

http://www.thejokerbrighton.com/food/

All about the Wings. Really, really tasty!

 

MARROCCOS

http://www.marroccos.co.uk

A great family run Italian restaurant. Daily fish and seafood, pasta and pizzas all made fresh to order. Save room for the home made ice cream too. It can get busy so worth booking a table.

 

SIAM SIAM

http://www.siamsiamhove.com/chef

A super Thai takeaway. Definitely try the Som Tum (Thai Papaya Salad).

 

PIZZAFACE

http://pizzafacepizza.co.uk

Lovely fresh Pizzas. They also offer Spelt or Gluten and Wheat free bases. Good vegan range but also cover some classic flavours too. 

 

COUCOU

http://www.coucoufood.com

The burgers here are so tasty with  good unique style and flavour. They also do Pizza (which I have not tried but I would bet they are good too).

 

MURASAKI

http://www.murasakirestaurant.co.uk

Fresh & tasty Japanese food. Go for the Bento Box option for a nice filling variety.

 

WOLFIE'S OF HOVE

https://www.facebook.com/wolfiesofhove

This does very tasty Fish & Chips but for me the homemade Pies are the real deal. There is a special each week and if the filling sounds tasty, you pretty much are guaranteed it will be.

 

STREET DINER

https://twitter.com/streetdiner

https://www.facebook.com/streetdinerbrighton/

This takes place every Friday 11am-3pm at Brighthelm Garden on Queens Road BN1 1YD. Central location with a great variety of stalls. I am a big fan of Dead Good Burritohttps://twitter.com/deadgoodburrito but everything is good at Street Diner.

 

GARS CHINESE

http://www.gars.co.uk

Good quality Chinese food. I have eaten here with two different people who have told me they do not really like Chinese food and they have both thought it was great. Freshly cooked and a nice variety of dishes.

 

MOSHI MOSHI SUSHI

http://www.moshimoshi.co.uk/index.htm

The first restaraunt in the UK to have the Sushi on a conveyer belt. Good fresh food and some great juices too. 

 

BARDSLEY'S FISH & CHIPS

http://www.bardsleys-fishandchips.co.uk

Not on the seafront but I think these are one of the best Fish & Chips you will get in Brighton. They have been doing their thing since 1926. Fresh & tasty in a real "chippy" environment.

 

HELLS KITCHEN DELI

http://www.hellskitchendeli.co.uk

If you need a quick sandwich or snack during the day this place is recommended.

 

OLD BANK STEAK & RIBS BBQ

http://www.oldbankkemptownbrighton.com

Good Barbecue restaurant. For Man Versus Food fans you should try the 56oz steak challenge! 

 

POMPOKO JAPANESE

http://www.pompoko.co.uk

Good value take-away and restaurant in central Brighton.

 

BANKERS

http://www.bankers-restaurant.co.uk

Great Fish & Chips. One of the places that many  people say are the best in Brighton. 

 

MANGE TOUT

http://www.viewbrighton.co.uk/restaurants/mange-tout-info-60347.html

Authentic French food. They do a great breakfast / lunch. Well worth checking.
