Meal #40: Dinner

Pork cutlets with cous cous and green beans, Oriel College dining hall, Oxford, UK

This was one of the best dinners at the college so far. It wasn’t very English, but it was simple and well prepared. The pork cutlets were breaded and then baked, they were crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The cous cous was wonderful with bits of onion, and peppers. The green beans were not over cooked, which is a big win for the college dining hall. Overall, a good home cooked meal, nothing amazing, but everything was well executed.

Meal #9: Dinner

Pork and apple pie, dinning hall, Oriel College, Oxford, UK

This was the best meal at the college so far!  The pork and apple pie was so good, I ate an extra portion.  It had big juicy chunks of pork in a lovely savory sauce.  There were mushrooms, onions, and slices of apple in with the pork, all under a crispy, flaky, perfect philo dough.  The potatoes and corn were nothing special, but the salad was very bland.  The dessert was awesome though, cream puffs floating in a dark chocolate bath!  I wish they made this for me every night!

Meal #6: Dinner

Pork fajita burrito, The Mission, Oxford, UK

I didn’t think they could make descent Mexican food in Europe, but they do!  Taste wise, this was the best meal I have eaten since I borded the plane in Chicago.  The Mission is just like Chipotle, but the flavours are slightly different.  I ordered the same thing I would get at Chipotle, and I think I like The Mission more.  When the guy was done adding stuff to my burrito, he sort of massaged it all around, mixing everything together.  What a good idea, someone should forward that to Chipotle.  Good dinner.
