Rootcandi Restaurant in Brighton (Vegan & Vegetarian)

Here in Brighton and Hove we are lucky enough to have a really great selection of vegan and vegetarian restaurants. The wonderful cafe Iydea on Western Road certainly tops our list, so when we heard that they were opening a restaurant we had to check it out! 

Rootcandi is a brand new plant-based Tapas restaurant that is situated upstairs, above Iydea on Western Road. Here is our short account of a super vegan feast!

We had strawberry mojitos and tomato bruschetta to start and then chose from a delicious selection of tapas sets. After much deliberation we went for the 'Preston - South American' and 'Stanmer - Modern European' sets and were very impressed! Each had been carefully selected and put together for their complementary tastes and textures and the great selection of dishes were presented beautifully in wooden bowls on tree style displays. You are also able to swap over the different dishes in the sets should there be something else that you would prefer to try. The service was great and we were given a lot of information about each dish as it arrived. Here are some photos of our meal....
