There’s a new community café in Oxford and I’m happy to report it’s on my side of town! Cafe Kraken is a welcoming, relaxed food spot on Holloway, East Oxford with a focus on sustainability, therefore naturally an emphasis on plant-based food.
My main course, the vegan thali, was honestly one of the nicest things I’ve eaten in a long time. As the menu explains, ‘according to Indian food custom, a proper meal is a perfect balance of all the six flavours sweet, salt, bitter, sour, astringent and spicy’ and this meal really did deliver on that!
For four doughnuts, they certainly didn’t come cheap at £15, but Barefoot could probably be forgiven with their gourmet-sounding fillings. The doughnuts were all huge, and each doughnut was flavoured differently.
