During last week-end, we had a little road trip, part of which was half a day spend in Brighton, which in my book is always a good idea! It is so refreshing, energising, full of character and amazing places to eat and drink! As we spent most of the morning browsing ‘The Lanes’, for lunch we decided to try one of the eatery there too. It’s called ‘Fil Fil’ and they are popular with Falafels. However, we went for their other special: Fil Fil Mezze Plater (see pictures below). It was absolutely delicious, made with fresh ingredients to order in front of you, good size portion, with an efficient service, friendly atmosphere and a location as a bonus! Falafels were devine – crispy and almost nutty on outside and soft and nicely spiced in inside. The only criticism that the Baba Ganoush was a bit under seasoned but still pleasantly refreshing. The price for the sharing platter for two was £13.50, which is good value, as the portion size is not too stingy, but just a perfect amount. They also prepare a few types of smoothies, which was also delicious (we had ‘Ecuator Breeze’ with Mango, Pineapple, Coconut and Orange – was very refreshing – unfortunately I didn’t take a photo – was too thirsty :). We were extremely pleased with this place and we’d definitely come back there again.
Later on we tried for fist time ever (I know, Im so behind 🙂 Bubble Tea (I had Macha Tea with Tapioca & Mark had Almond Milk one) from Pearls which, to be honest didn’t rock our boat. We both liked the Macha one more, Almond one was a bit powdery and too sweet. May be we should try something else or it is for an acquire taste. 🙂
