Review: Majliss

I think of Indian cuisine as being generally quite veggie-friendly and I was happy to look at the menu online and see a long list of things I could order from (which always presents problems though as I’m notoriously bad at making decisions)!

Review: Byron Burger Part 2

You may be surprised to see me revisiting Byron Burger after my notoriously bad experience there last year. I must admit I was hesitantly curious when I saw that they relaunched a brand new vegan burger and an overhaul of their veggie and vegan options a couple of weeks ago.

Review: The Folly Vegan Tasting Menu

A last-minute tip off from a friend led me to learn that The Folly was launching a vegan tasting menu, the test run being last Sunday evening. I wouldn’t ordinarily be looking out for vegan events at The Folly as they have nothing vegan-friendly on their regular dining menu at all, but a look at the tasting menu suggested this had the makings of a really great experience…

Review: Oxford’s Grill

At a first glance online, the menu also looks like a relative vegan haven – as this kind of cuisine can be, featuring lots of veggie mezze.

Review: Cinnamon Kitchen

Cinnamon Kitchen was one of the first restaurants to open in the new Westgate on the rooftop terrace, serving up creative modern-Indian dishes in an elegant setting. I’d spied the menu before they opened and there are plenty of veggie-friendly dishes featured, but I wasn’t sure how much they’d be able to offer vegans with the dairy seemingly featuring heavily.

Review: Rick’s Vegetarian

The vegan breakfast itself was delicious and incredibly filling, particularly great value for the price. This has got to be the go-to place for any veggie students with a hangover this term! A big plate with falafel, beans, mushrooms, hash browns, houmous, spinach, and a tomato, are served with a portion of toast on the side.

Review: The Coconut Tree

A glance at the menu of recently-opened The Coconut Tree on St. Clements suggests it’s a relative haven for vegans. With no less than 16 vegan dishes, visiting was one of those rare occasions a vegan finds themselves in the position of having too much choice.

Beyond Veganuary: Make-up and Toiletries

To the majority of non-vegans, it is easy to get confused between vegan, and ‘plant-based’. While even just cutting out animal products from your diet does have an impact of the suffering of animals and damage to the environment, many people may not realise that the exploitation carries through into so many other aspects of our modern lives, and you’re missing the point of veganism if you’re still actively participating in that.
