Review: Opera Cafe

She pointed at a bowl of iceberg lettuce with a couple of slices of tomato, cucumber, and olives in, and said that that was it. Besides the fact that I don’t like olives, it was a pretty small bowl and I knew it wouldn’t remotely fill me up.

Event: VeloVedic Cycling and Yoga Retreat

Those who know me know I love to exercise, and keeping fit is a big part of my life, but one thing I don’t do very much at all is cycling – not even of the spin class variety. In fact, until a couple of weeks ago my bike had been kept in storage for the two years since I got it. So what did I decide to do? Sign up for a cycling retreat five days in advance, obviously.

Review: Pan Pan

Pan Pan Oxford opened at the end of May this year on the old site of Pink Giraffe, and offers a variety of dishes inspired by the street food of Southeast Asia. At a first glance their menu seemed pretty vegan friendly, but I messaged them in advance and they provided me with a really helpful list of all the options that are either vegan, or can be adapted if you ask.

Review: Franco Manca

Sourdough pizza restaurant Franco Manca is the latest addition to the plethora of food options on George Street, and I was very happy to be invited to try out their vegan pizza the week after they opened on 14th August.

Review: Will’s Deli

The menus change almost daily so I think I could quite easily become a regular here and it would take a long time for me to get bored of the food. Today’s hot veggie dish was a chickpea tagine which was served with rice or potatoes, and your choice of hot green veg or one selection from the salad bar.

Review: Thali

New Indian restaurant Thali opened on George Street at the end of last month and is a welcome bright addition amongst the row of mostly large-scale chain restaurants. I was very happy to receive an invitation from the lovely people at Thali to try their food – and it didn’t disappoint.

Review: The White Rabbit

The White Rabbit Vegana pizza is topped with sundried tomatoes, courgette, peppers, and rocket. For once I didn’t feel the need to swap any of the toppings for something else on their list because these ones were really well thought out and it sounded delicious as it was.

Review: Pizza Express

Pizza Express are one of a handful of chain restaurants that offer a massive 40% off on Mondays and Tuesdays for students, making it a really fantastic deal (I think my three courses and a drink came to just over a tenner). If you don’t have a student card, they usually have set menu offers on their website for only a couple of pounds more, that are valid every day of the week.
