A few weeks ago, before the heatwave and following deluge of rain, Phil, Poppydog and I headed into Oxford to visit Bitten Street. This is a street food event that happens monthly and is run by Bitten Oxford. We’ve been before but haven’t been in ages, mainly because I became vegan and there was very little on offer for me so we didn’t bother going in. However, we noticed that Rupert’s Street was going to be there and everything they due is suitable for vegans. Finally, I could eat something! So we planned a little walk that would mean we could arrive at Bitten Street in time for an early lunch, and I’m glad we did, as Rupert’s Street did sell out. We parked at Hinksey Park car park and walked along the Thames into Oxford to Oxford Castle. It was a lovely walk, tired Poppydog out and avoided the hideous car parking charges.
We headed straight for Rupert’s Street to check out their vegan offerings. I had the tofu salad, which was amazing, and Phil had the beetroot latke, which was really delicious. The food was healthy, tasty and reasonable. It was so nice to see vegan food on offer and I really hope that it’s the start of things to come and that there will be many more vegan offerings. To see what’s coming up at the next Bitten Street event, check out the Bitten Oxford Facebook page. If there’s vegan food to be had, then you might just see me there!
