Brighton: Silo

Brighton is all chic, vegan, hipster, quirky. After recommendation from the awesome kiwi at Crosstown Doughnuts, he said check out SiloSilo are the first UK Zero waste cafe. They choose local food sources that avoid processing and create everything on site, with the extent of having their own flour mill. 
We were served their homemade complimentary sour dough bread with home made butter. This bread was so incredibly soft and moist. They are served on these rubber looking plates which the chef informs us is made from recycled plastic bags. The menu is simple for lunch. One – fish, plant, meat, dairy, and wild. We were given one menu to share between two of us, but if ya can’t share the menu is projected on to the wall in two places for everyone – I guess their way of saving paper.

The fish was cod and you can’t get any better. The fish had been caught that morning! It was so soft and velvety and served on a delicious seaweed and poached leek mash. The menu is so light and innovative and nothing is soaked in oil or butter. The produce is well cared for and served accordingly. If your on the run, they have a selection of baked goods and takeaway sandwiches.

I think the concept for Silo is exceptional. No waste and recycling is a great example to set for other restaurants. The wait for the food was a bit long but the standard of food is so high its well worth the wait. The staff are very informative and the chefs explain the dishes whilst serving and are very proud for the concept they produce.
