After walking almost all the way down Cowley Road during the annual Cowley Road Carnival, and just when Stu was at his breaking point for the amount of my curry-quest related whining, we found it. This chicken curry was pretty decent, the chicken could have been a bit more moist, but the flavour and spicy level were spot on.
Fish and chips, a small mixed greens salad. For my first ever fish and chips in England, this one was pretty good. The fish was flaky and perfectly cooked inside it’s crunchy shell of fried batter. The chips were not so good, a little dry. But the tarter sauce was home made and awesome. The salad was a nice touch of freshness on a plate otherwise piled high with friedness.
King prawn (shrimp) and rocket (arugula) sandwhich, apple juice to drink. For a premade sandwhich coming out of a grocery store, this one was not half bad. It was a kind of prawn salad like tuna salad, it had onions and celery, and mayonnaise. Where we would say salad, they just call it a “prawn mayonnaise.” Where in America can we get a premade grocery store sandwhich with shrimp and arugula on it?
Chicken and mushroom pasty, with 500 mils of Dr. Pepper. More of a snack than a real lunch, but I was on the go. The pastry was flaky and well seasoned, lots of herbs in the sauce. The Dr. Pepper was cold and refreshing.
