Review: Le Pain Quotidien

Inside the front entrance is an enticing display of breads, jams and spreads, and sweet and savoury treats, much of which is vegan. You can either grab a muffin and a cuppa to go, or wait to be seated in the restaurant area.

Review: The Nosebag

I had heard lots of good things about the veggie options at The Nosebag in town, so arranging a catch up with a friend felt like a good opportunity to try the place out. The Nosebag offers a seasonal menu featuring a handful of hot vegan dishes, as well as an array of salads which you can pick and mix from if you prefer.

Review: Vegan Christmas Sandwiches

With limited edition Christmas drinks and lunch options now a staple in supermarkets and coffee shops over the holiday period, I explore which places have been offering a vegan option in 2017. Look out for these over the next couple of weeks if you’re doing some last minute Christmas shopping or braving the boxing day sales.

Review: Happy Friday Kitchen

I decided on the Mac Daddy, a fried chicken-style seitan burger, topped with mac ’n’ cheese, in a bun with salad, with fries on the side. The seitan burger was perfectly crispy on the outside and the texture was pretty accurate to what you expect from a chicken burger. The seasoning was spot on too, so you’re left with something quite realistic.

Oxford Vegan Festival Haul

At the entrance, Farplace had their own stand selling absolutely huge cakes and pastries. I picked up a massive iced pastry straight away because we were there just after the event opened and I could see their stock was already depleting at a decent rate.

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. 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.
