I've been wanting to visit Terre a Terre for ages so I decided to go crazy and have three courses. To start I ordered the Skordalia and Sesame Discos (£10.50). Aubergine rounds coated with sumac and sesame served with a herb salad, radishes, salted grapes and balsamic pomegranate.
Whilst I enjoyed the salted grapes, radishes, aubergine and the sauce the meal was plated upon, I just wasn't so into the herb salad.
For my main I went with the Smoked Sakuri Soba (£10.95). Chilled soba noodles with raw vegetable spaghetti served with smoked tofu, pomegranate beads and wasabi cashews.
I enjoyed this course way more than the starter, I loved the raw spaghetti and the tofu was smoked beautifully. I even liked the wasabi cashews which was a big surprise given that I normally hate wasabi.
I was most excited about the dessert and the main reason I ordered from the expensive a la carte menu rather than the frugal foodie menu was that I had to try the Rain Vodka Cherry Chocolate Churros (£7.70).
These delicious donut straws certainly lived up to expectations. I was amazed the chocolate pot was vegan as it wasn't at all bitter and the rain vodka sozzled cherries, whilst a bit much at lunch time, were pretty awesome especially when covered in the chocolate dipping sauce.
I really enjoyed dining at Terre a Terre and whilst I'd recommend that all vegans, vegetarians and omnivores try their food at least once I think it's a little too classy for me! I'm sure I will head back there one day but I think there's better value for money to be had dining out in Brighton. For dinner that night we went to one of my favorite restaurants Pompoko for huge bowls of delicious Japanese food, at £4.20 a bowl that's my kinda place.
