The Urban Fox
Modern British dining in the heart of studentville (aka Causewayside).
With its purple and orange décor, trendy lighting and retro-style furniture, this newcomer to the Southside dining scene feels both modern and student-friendly, but their menu is pleasingly more inspiring than the average university-area fare. There's a Mediterranean feel to the food which showcases seafood in a variety of ways and they don’t skimp on portion size either. Starters include crayfish salad with avocado; salt and pepper squid with Sriracha mayo; or an antipasti sharing platter. Mains on the seafood theme include roast salmon fillet and classic fish and chips, but there's no need for carnivores to worry – roast duck breast, twice-cooked pork belly and pan-roasted chicken feature too. The dessert menu is rather wee, as is the wine list, but a glass of house and a fruit crumble will do the trick, right enough. If you're a fan of French Martinis, this one comes with a pineapple twist.
