Location: 110 Church Street, Brighton, BN1 1UD
Cost: £ [extreamly cheap]
I would consider Pompoko as my go-to place if I’m unsure of what or where to eat- I have never been disappointed by their food. Pompoko is a Japanese restaurant offering noodle and donburi dishes rather than traditional sushi, which is available everywhere in Brighton. While they don’t have their own Instagram account- click here to check out their IG tag or here for their website.
Located near the Brighton Dome, it is a small restaurant with street seating. It is very easy to find due to its location- the restaurant front faces the main street. While it is a little way from Churchill Square, which is where all buses coming to and from the city stop, it is an ideal location due to other surrounding restaurants.
When you think of small restaurants, there are faults such as people being seated extremely close to each other, loud conversations and feeling of counterphobic… well it is a little bit that BUT not to the point where you’re touching the person next to you or where you couldn’t hear your friends. It is a warm and welcoming place with wonderful staffs ready to help and accommodate your needs.
Now the food itself. THREE MAIN THINGS about the food at Pompoko is that it is QUICK, FRESH AND ALWAYS DELICIOUS! The are lots on the menu for such a small place, variations of meats from chicken to prawns. I would recommend everything on the menu, but here are my current favourites.
➤ Takoyaki [Japaness octopus balls]
➤ Gyoza Dumpings [filled with chicken and vegetables]
➤ Pork Nanban Don [ breadcrumbed pork marinated in a sweet sour sauce]
Overall, Pompoko is an easy-going restaurant with a fast service and delicious food. It is amazing for introducing friends to Japanese food, for a catch-up and for value for money.
So, what is your favourite Japanese dish?
