Brighton is a booming city, with a great variety of places to eat: not only we have restaurants specializing in food from all over the world, the city is also home to the highest amount of vegan and ethical establishments for plant-based cooking. However, as any hungry student in Brighton might tell you, they are not always affordable. So we decided to point our interns in the direction of some of the most student-friendly places to eat in the city, all providing superior quality food at a cheap price.
Casa della pizza
IIB’s team thinks Casa Della Pizza on North Street is one of the most intern-friendly places to eat in Brighton. The reason we all like this place so much is because of its very affordable buffet, at £6 during the week and £7 on weekends. The buffet holds an array of dishes and caters for all, maintaining a very good standard. The option of being able to purchase a single dish from the menu, as well as having the opportunity to also order the hot or cold buffet is perfect when saving money.
This is the best pizza place in town. Although it is a vegan pizzaria, even non-vegans love how fresh and tasty the Franca Manca pizzas are. The menu is small, usually holding about 10 pizzas alongside salads and drinks, but the pizzas are well worth more than the fixed price on the menu. They also have a special “pizza of the day”, which makes the ordering process very hard. In terms of budget, the margarita pizza and a glass of apple juice overall costs £8.
The focus point for Foodillic is health. The small restaurants, placed on North Street and Western Road, provide the customer delicious range of food, that is fresh and all homemade. Whether you are a meat-eater, vegetarian or vegan, you will leave the place with a smile on your face. While healthy food might seem like a luxury in a busy city like Brighton, Foodillic makes it necessary, without lacking taste and quality.
The Balcony Café
The Balcony Café in Brighton’s Kensington Gardens (North Lanes) holds a special place in many Brightonian’s hearts. Known amongst local people and enthusiastic tourists for its breakfasts and vibe, this beloved café has their own style that seamlessly blends in with Brighton’s diverse rich tapestry of life. The food is reviewed countlessly times on social media as delicious, loads of choice for vegan, vegetarian and carnivores! If you don’t want the usual high street brand coffee shop, look no further!
At the bottom of Church Street lies a great (if not the best!) place to get a meal for under a fiver. Specialising in Japanese cuisine that promises to satisfy both the Eastern and Western pallet, Pompoko is a fantastic place to get a cheap eat. Prices start as little as £2.50 for a starter and average out at £4.60 for a filling main meal. Eat in or takeaway available, so you can enjoy your tempura prawns, gyoza dumplings, chicken nanban don or vegetable stir fried noodles in the sunshine too.
