Terre a Terre
71 East Street, Brighton, BN1 1HQTucked away on East Street, a short walk from the seafront and Brighton Pier, Terre à Terre brings together a medley of international textures and flavours to offer delicious vegetarian cuisine created with flair and playful exuberance. The brainchild of Amanda Powley and Philip Taylor, classically trained chefs who have cooked throughout the world, Terre à Terre's uncompromising quality has bagged it two AA Rosettes and Michelin Bib Gourmand awards. An enjoyable evening in its comfortable, contemporary setting is full of pleasant surprises. While the umpteen benefits of a vegetarian diet have been loudly proclaimed for several years, Terre à Terre sets out to prove that it need not come at the expense of flavour or variety by indulging the palate with expertly blended ingredients to provide a culinary experience with a difference.

Terre à Terre's à la carte is as detailed as it is novel. Using seasonal vegetarian, vegan and organic products, including a host of locally sourced ingredients, it serves up piquant starters of arepas chilli candy; deep fried corn cakes rolled in spice dust and served with chilli jelly, avocado and lime mayonnaise. While the wittily titled Peas Please turns out to be a delectable pea mousse served with a salad of broad beans, saffron new potatoes, white leeks and little gem hearts. For a sampling of dishes across the menu, why not try the Terre à tapas selection.
The unique combination of flavours continues with a host of sumptuous main course options. Crispy fried potato rösti comes with a buttered spinach topping and accompanied by a soft poached egg and melting cheese. Other choices include delectably soft buttermilk-soaked halloumi dipped in chip shop batter and served with chunky chips, vodka-spiked preserved plum tomatoes, bright fresh pea mint hash and pickled quails egg with a lemony Yemeni relish. There's also choice of shiitake, sake and kombu raman broth finished with courgette noodles, Chinese chives and soy; and red onion, mustard seed and cumin crumpets with ginger root chilli jam.
Delicious desserts such as the Middle Eastern inspired honey glazed pistachio and olive oil cake with velvety chocolate sorbet and a hot honeyed cardamom espresso shot, or sugar spice dusted doughnut straws served with sticky dipping chocolate and Rain Vodka sozzled cherries will satisfy even the sweetest tooth.
The same careful consideration extends to the organic and biodynamic wine list which sparkles with a variety of superb whites and reds from around the world including a Vega Lucia Blanco from Spain, Horsmonden Dry from East Sussex, Syrah from Chile and a Pinot Noir from New Zealand. Organic beers and ciders, aperitifs, cocktails and fruit juice will also quench the thirst.

REVIEWS OF Terre a Terre
Gillyschu (5 November 2011)
Always a pleasure to eat in this restaurant whether it is for a main course meal or just to eat their delicious desserts. Truly one of the best restaurants I have ever visited, the food is always top quality and the staff are superb. If all restaurants were this good the world would be a better place!
Linda (9 February 2011)
I had a lovely lunch here on a busy Saturday. The food was innovative and although not a vegetarian I found it was interesting enough not to make me miss meat or fish. The only criticism was that the portions were quite small although beautifully presented and I did need to have three courses to feel on the way to being satiated.
