Review: The Cape of Good Hope

I noticed a while back that The Cape of Good Hope updated their menu and it included a host of vegan options, including a lasagne. My mind had been fixed on that coveted of dishes for some time, and when my sister (who is also vegan) came to visit, I finally found my reason to go and try it out.

Review: Spiced Roots

It seems almost unbelievable that I’m only just writing this post, considering I have heard and read so many good things about Spiced Roots in the couple of years it’s existed on Cowley Road (not to mention it currently holds the number 1 spot for restaurants in Oxford on Tripadvisor).

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: Brewdog

So I’d ordered the Hail Seitan burger, a BBQ seitan steak served with hummus and kale. The burger itself was very meat-like, so much so that I had to check there wasn’t a meat version of the same burger on the menu.

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. I had identified more dishes that I wanted to try than I’d be able to reasonably eat in one sitting. Sadly however when it came to ordering, my hopes were dashed a little bit.

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.

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 […]
