Review: Chaat Street Food Feast

Before we even start with the review, I want to apologise for the poor quality photography. I use my iPhone for my blog photos and while the atmosphere of the Chaat Supper Club was perfect for an intimate supper club in the low-lit Silvie with tealights, this did not make for good photos. I don’t […]

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.

Event: Kerb’s Livin’ on the Veg

As you might have gathered from my Wilderness Festival food round-up, I love street food. I love the passion and care that food truck owners clearly have for their food, and really admire them for cooking up what are often beautiful dishes with lots of different elements, in the tiniest of kitchens under pressured circumstances.

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.

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: 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.

Review: Ask Italian

We decided to go to Ask Italian as it’s really close to Odeon on George Street, and one of the few places offering a student discount in Oxford that we haven’t tried yet. Things were off to a good start when the waitress presented us with two free small glasses of freshly made pink lemonade shortly after we were seated.
