Read about my day out in York and the great food I had. 

If you didn't know already, I'm now in my second year of university at the University of York. It's freshers week at the moment so first years are now roaming about finding their feet. Some of my house and I decide to try and escape the on-campus madness and head into the centre. York Food & Drink Festival is currently on and so we decided to have a look around and eat way too much food. 

I decided to try something different. While a lot of the festival food seemed to be big burgers and meat, I found, not actually at the festival but on the markets a new little company selling vegetarian curries. I went for the Red Lentil Dal and Bombay potatoes. Taking pictures of food isn't really my forte and so I didn't manage to get one before I was eating it.
You'll have to take my word for it when I say I really enjoyed it; the potatoes were lovely and the curry, being something I hadn't tried before, was really nice to eat with the bit of bread that came with it. I wish I had some rice to go with the rest of the curry because it was really tasty and I think I'll be trying to remake this curry myself soon.  

We then spotted a cute little truck selling crepes and so my friend and I decided to go halves on one and we were so glad we did. It was white chocolate, Nutella and strawberries and it was delicious! It was a messy affair but really nice all the same. We struggled to finish it we were so full. 

We headed back into the main strip of the food and drink festival; while only small, there was a lot on offer. Some of the stalls looked so inviting I couldn't not at least take a picture. I liked the way local businesses had come together to offer some great food that you could tell everyone was loving. It was such a lovely atmosphere that reminded me of the York Christmas markets which I'll be definitely heading back to later this year. 

I hope you enjoyed this little day account and the photos along side it. Let me know if you'd like to hear more about what goes on in York in future posts. 

Hope you're doing great,
Sarah X
