For the authentic taste of Korea, Namul is Brighton's best bet. Situated in the North Laine, this unassuming little eatery boasts a vast menu of rice, noodles and fresh veggies, which combine to form the most stunning Bibimbap.
For those not in the know, a Bibimbap is a Korean dish of rice and topped with seasoned vegetables, as well as a wedge of Korean-style beef or chicken for those with carnivorous inclinations. This is all topped-off with a Namul signature homemade sauce - for the brave, a Chilli gochujang (hot) sauce and for the timid, a more soothing black sesame sauce.
It's a good shout for a light lunch as well. Namul's fantastic staff are quick to serve and always eager to explain the menu. For the meat-free there is a handsome selection and with at least six different varieties of fungi on the menu, owner Jisun Yom knows how to please Brighton's large veggie audience.
