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: Rola Wala

Rola Wala has firmly replaced Leon as my go-to great value healthy ‘fast food’ option in town. With more than half of the food on offer being vegan, they serve up rolls and bowls packed with nutrients, and as I discovered, more importantly with flavour.

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: 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: 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.

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.
