Oh, Brighton! I’ve missed you. Since moving back home after graduating I’ve not had the chance to go back and visit as much as I would have liked. I was so excited to return yesterday for a girly day trip with my Mum. The weather was perfect – in my eyes blue skies make Brighton the best place to be.
For lunch we toyed with idea of trying out one of Brighton’s vegetarian or vegan eateries. In the end, however, the lure of MeatLiquor’s burgers got to me. My goodness, how good are the fried pickles! The standard bacon cheeseburger I went for was honestly one of the tastiest burgers I’ve ever eaten. I can’t wait to go back another time – I really enjoyed the whole vibe of the place. It would be great to visit in the evening as I expect this is when the restaurant really comes to life. Their cocktail menu looks lush!
In the afternoon we wandered through the North Laines and down to the pier. It felt so good to be strolling through the hustle and bustle. I made sure I stopped off at old favourite Roly’s Fudge. We had a peek in Snooper’s Paradise and Infinity Foods too. I’d forgotten how refreshing it is to have so many independent shops on your doorstep. It’s something that I really miss.
I couldn’t leave without an ice cream on the seafront (always a 99) and wasting a few too many 10p’s in the arcade on the pier. I had such a lovely day, but it made me realise just how much I miss living there.
I’ll always have a soft spot for you, Brighton!
