A la Colthard : The Market/Western Road Brighton

I am a huge fan of Spanish cuisine. Tapas has generated the concept of shared platters adopted by many cuisines. I like the idea of not taking alcohol on it’s own but accompanied by small helpings of food.

Yesterday I returned to Market. The first time I enjoyed the food but not the experience as  three of us sat uncomfortably at the bar.  Yesterday we were the only two diners. Brighton restaurants do not have much lunch trade from Monday to Thursday. We started with Serrano Ham, cuttlefish, a potato dumpling and cheese. We moved onto larger plates of lamb and suckling pig. Each was delicious – the most flavoursome food I’ve eaten in Brighton since the last time I went to 64 Degrees. With the latter, Pascere and Market  Brighton offers exciting varied cuisine as well as more traditional gastronomy at English’s, the Jetty and the Regency. I did not see the bill as I was a guest but all the dishes were £10 or under.

Hasta la vista!!!
