Review: Byron Burger

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the burger was the best part about the meal. It was nice and crispy on the outside but soft in the middle, flavoured with lots of spices including cumin, with chickpeas and kidney beans. Essentially though this was a more polished version of a veganย burger that me and Jamie have made at home quite often.

Review: Comptoir Libanais

I’d seen and heard lots of good things about Comptoir Libanais, the new Lebanese canteen situated pride of place at the front of the Westgate, so I was excited to finally get to try dinner there with a friend. I’ve generally found Lebanese cuisine to be vegan-friendly, and with their website’s handy vegan filter I was looking forward to sharing a hassle-free, tasty meal.

Review: Wagamama

This post is actually an amalgamation of two visits to Wagamama within the space of two weeks. I suppose that should be an indication that the Japanese-style restaurant has plenty of options for vegans, is relatively budget-friendly, and the food is up to scratch.

Review: Roll With Me Sushi

When I got in touch with Roll With Me Sushi, based in Kidlington, to ask whether they would consider delivering to East Oxford, the wonderful Sue offered to put me together a sample platter so I could try a few more of the different vegan options that are available on their rotating weekly menu.

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 donโ€™t […]

Review: Al-Shami

On offer at the Lebanese restaurant is a plethora of traditional hot and cold mezze as well as larger dishes, and vegans are spoilt for choice with a large number of these being clearly labelled as vegan on the printed version of the menu.

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.
