Be Right On
There are knowns, known unknowns and unknown unknowns. Yes, but is it art? No. It’s Fancy Nancy. That is, coco cardamom fried spiced rice with spring onion and yuzu palm bean shoots served with a salad of lychee, coriander, mint and pickled lotus root and a pinda peanut laksa, finished with yuzu crème fraîche, panang pickled chilli sambal with a chilli flash fried egg, peanut cumin and onion seed crumble and tapioca sea salad cracker (£14.95). Best complemented by sizzle chips, truffle Mornay sauce and truffle with pickled quails’ egg mimosa (£7.65). Only in Brighton, would vegetarians be in the majority. And so, on a cold rainy afternoon, Terre à Terre, one of Clapham-on-Sea’s best meat free restaurants, is jammers. Red walls in a dining room stimulate conversation and appetite. So do great company and great food. Afterwards, it’s a dash across East Street, seagulls serenading overhead, for the best vegan coffee and orange brownies in Brighton. VBites, Heather Mills’ cosy café, proves she’s more than just a charity fundraiser, animal rights campaigner, TV personality, model and champion skier… Actually, Fancy Nancy? It is art. The edible kind.
