Amazing Amazing Amazing! We had never been to a pop up restaurant before and found via the internet. The food is all vegan. They don't serve alcohol but you can BYO for 50p corkage per person. You also have to pay in cash but they warn you of this in advance. It is in a deli on a road behind a small pizza place opposite the bus stop at the bottom of Elm Grove, so hidden away but easy to find when you know how. They have different themed nights each week. They offer just one option per course but it is on the webpage so you know what you are getting. The web page lists the themes for all the nights quite a few months in advance and then about 2-3 menus for the coming weeks. Booking in advance was easy - a quick email which was responded to very promptly. We were made very welcome and the service was attentive without being in your face. We went for the Chinese meal, and ate every last morsel, it was so well thought out, beautifully flavoured and presented. It is high end cooking and the absence of meat is not glaringly obvious (if you are not veggie), although I am! The starter and pud are currently 5.50 each, the main is 11. I would say it is on a par with Terre a Terre in terms of creativity etc. We very much hope to go again and it is definitely worth searching out. It is open from 7-9pm and the tables were not rammed closely together so it had a very nice relaxed atmosphere. A real hidden gem!

We visited this pop up restaurant at the weekend, having neither been to a pop up restaurant before or sampled the Gourmet Girls food before, and we were not disappointed.

There is only 1x starter, main and dessert on offer, but this didn't matter the prices are so reasonable for the quality of the food and the service. The restaurant is themed and we were there on 'Mediterranean' night. We had vine leaves, aubergine goujons then biscotti. The food was amazing. We have eaten in some of the best vegan restaurants in the world and this is up there amongst them.

The prices are very reasonable, just remember to take cash, I don't think cards are accepted. Also best to book ahead as it is quite a cosy space. We took our own wine and there is no corkage charge.

A really good night, if we lived in Brighton we would probably be back there this weekend!!

Gourmet Girls Pop Up Resturant occurs every Friday night with a different menu each week. It's held in a fab little deli called Fanny's of Hanover. Paula and Sammy are perfect hosts and the food is divine. It's vegetarian, 100% vegan suitable and is Brighton's best kept secret for veggie dining. We are now firm regulars because as the menu changes each week you can try so many different cuisines and dishes. The menu is published before the event on their website so when you book you know you will like everything and no suprises. It can get very busy so you need to book in advance. It is a BYO but soft drinks are available. We've deserted both Food for Friends and Terre a Terre for Gourmet Girls because we feel the food is of a much higher and fresher quality and just much better tasting. It is also much more price competitive. It is cash only so you need to visit a cashpoint in advance but the website tells you how much each course costs and you can choose if you want to eat starter or dessert ( or if you are like us, both!) Portion sizes are good. You will leave feeling stuffed. It's not just for vegans. Veggies and even those who want to cut down on meat will really enjoy the gourmet food. The puddings are to die for. We'd strongly recommend Gourmet Girls to any Brighton residents or visitors. You can book tables of any size. It's not one long table for everyone to sit together so no need for Brits to have to talk to people they don't know! There is space for romantic tables for two on the ground floor, tables in the lovely decorated and homely basement for larger groups or if sunny there are tables on the patio garden. We think Gourmet Girls is the jewel in the crown of Brighton's veggie dining and of the same standard as Candle 79 in New York. The beer battered nori wrapped tofu ("vegan cod") homemade chips and tartare sauce was my favourite. My veggie husband loved his Elvis Burger on the Gourmet Burger

night. We give Gourmet Girls 5/5.
