The thing I was most intrigued to try was the ‘chicken’ tiki masala, made with vegan Quorn pieces. A number of local Indian restaurants have started to think about labelling vegan options on their menu, but as yet no one else is offering us something using mock meat. The dish didn’t disappoint.
I was so excited to see Taste Tibet launch their online shop, delivering to homes around Oxford on Thursday-Sunday evenings. They will be a familiar face to anyone who’s visited Gloucester Green market, and they’re also a staple on the festival circuit around Oxfordshire and beyond.
I feel like it wasn’t that long ago that I last reviewed Cinnamon Kitchen, but was excited to hear that Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Collection was launching a new vegan menu and was grateful to be given the opportunity to visit their Westgate branch and check it out.
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.
