The Chilli Pickle is also well-known, round-these-parts for having won lots of local and national awards. Located in the centre of Brighton opposite the Jubilee library, I'd walked passed it hundreds of times.
So far, so much of what I knew, although I'd never actually eaten there. I kind of felt like I knew the place already.
This changed, however, last Saturday when my brother was over from the States and his only wish was for a good curry. Apparently New York doesn't match up to our Brit offerings. After suggesting a load of places, The Chilli Pickle was decided upon and off we went.
As food was the priority, the bar suited us fine. And as it goes, it was very nice to be perched up high in the centre of the room.
The most outstanding parts for me were the plainest of dishes, the plain naan and pilau rice were so light and fresh tasting that they really stood out. Maybe these left an impression because of how they contrasted with the complex layering of flavours in the other dishes.
The selection included rose and chocolate ice cream, Turkish delight, alcoholic cherries and the most amazing white chocolate truffle.
