I've not been around much lately, not been in UK for months and not Brighton this year. However I know some foodie regulars here so thought I'd share tips from last bank holiday weekend where I found myself in Brighton.
Walked past what used to be La Tasca and surprised (I'm out of touch) to see it had changed to a tapas and cava bar called Bellota, must have been quite recently. Say no more, the sun was shining so we grabbed an outside seat, I have to say the furniture is not very comfortable and they could do with some shades but we enjoyed some drinks.
Ordered pig Cheeks - Excellent
Montego chese with honey - nice combo
The Iberian ham 'plank' consisted of chorizo, 3 hams and some sausage.
Mixed breads with oil and Bas. vin
Have to say impressed, it's a sort of gourmet tapas bar with some good dishes, pigs cheeks and the like specialties I've not seen elsewhere in Brighton.
We were eating elsewhere, old favourites but fro the small amount we tried I'd recommend Bellota's and will be back. Good wine, fino and cava selections, San Miguel and Estrella beer on tap. If the sun is shining then grab a table,what's not to like.
