The Oxford Spotlight: London Street Food Found in Sunnyvale

June 29th, 2016 Posted by Press 0 thoughts on “The Oxford Spotlight: London Street Food Found in Sunnyvale”

The Oxford had a vision of bringing Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, Indian and English flavors to the table in a lively atmosphere to emulate a British Gastropub. It did just that. Our takeaway from this four-month-old restaurant in the smack of downtown Sunnyvale is creativity at its finest. We’re talking kale chips dipped in chickpea batter and served with creamy taziki sauce. And a watermelon, beetroot, goat cheese salad sprinkled with greens and olive dust. Oh, and the cocktails with aromatic basil or ground coffee beans floating on top so that smells take over your senses before the first sip. Every plate had exploding flavor profiles.

The Oxford
While primarily influenced by London street food, the menu at the Oxford also draws on Middle Eastern, Asian, Indian and North African fare. In the few months it’s been open, the falafel sliders with mint tahini yogurt ($10) and burger with housemade pickles ($15) have been especially popular. Of course, you can also get a platter of beer-battered fish and chips ($14).
Power Move: Most of the syrups, sodas and elixirs are prepared in-house. The bartenders pride themselves on creating concoctions based on a guest’s preferred flavor profiles; be sure to let them know yours. 195 S. Murphy Ave., Sunnyvale, 408.245.8503

British fare gets the California treatment at this downtown Sunnyvale gastropub known for hearty, midpriced starters and flat-screen TVs.
Must-order: Fish ‘n’ chips; chicken shawarma turnovers; the rum- and walnut-driven Cyprus cocktail.

Insider Tip: The gastropub label is truly appropriate — The Oxford is one of the very few restaurants to truly embrace the diverse flavors of London street food on its menu, which goes well beyond pub grub. The most rewarding experience is sharing typical British classics with the more unique, harder-to-find dishes from London’s immigrant community.
