Gourmet Burger Kitchen, George Street

I can be a bit inconsistent sometimes. Only the other week I was complaining about all the chains on George Street and here I am reviewing one. In my defence, GBK isn't quite like any other restaurant in Oxford and has enough quirks (good and bad) to make it worth commenting on.

Moya, St Clements

The experiences I've documented on this blog range from excellent to mediocre but what I eat doesn't always vary that much: it's not hard to find yet another Chinese, Italian, Thai, 'Modern British' or whatever place in Oxford. So this week I tried something a little different, the 'wholesome Slovak home cooking' of Moya.

Cafe Opium, George Street

George Street is not Oxford's most promising location for eating out. There are a couple of good cafes (Granola and the OFS) and Byron Burgers are opening there in the summer but otherwise it's mainly standard high-street chains and pubs - and Cafe Opium. While I'm not sure my meal there was quite good enough to redeem George Street entirely, it was certainly more characterful than most of the other options nearby.
