Rick Stein Tastes Tibet

This week, exactly one year to the day since Taste Tibet opened the doors to our place on Magdalen Road, we will actually be marking a different milestone. Everyone, they say, enjoys fifteen minutes of fame, and Taste Tibet is getting five of these this Saturday 13th November with our first appearance on national TV!

BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen team came to film with us back in August when we were first announced as finalists in the Best Street Food or Takeaway category of the BBC Food and Farming Awards. Some of you even agreed to place yourselves front of camera to share your love of momos – we hope that you make the cut!!

A short film about Taste Tibet and the work that we’ve done feeding our NHS heroes and friends in the community will air at around 10am this coming Saturday, with real-time momo-eating by Rick Stein, amongst other food legends (Yeshi and I will be making an early morning dash to the studios in London to dish up from behind the scenes). Catch us live or you can watch again on BBC iPlayer.

All of this means that we won’t be throwing a party on our one year anniversary, but you can join us at the restaurant for lunch and dinner on the day – the doors will be open and we will be enjoying our moment.

Here are our opening hours for the week:

Wednesday: 5-9.30pm (dinner only)

Thursday -Saturday: 12-3pm (lunch) / 5-9.30pm (dinner)

Come for takeaway, to dine in (no bookings) or home delivery through Foodstuff. This week’s menu is live on the website now.

This week is the final week of ,Foodstuff‘s 50% off home deliveries offer so grab whatever deals you can! We were even thinking of putting our freezer food on the site for this weekend as well – would you order this in with the 50% off deal if we do? Please let us know! The offer closes at midnight on Saturday 13th October, but the partnership with ,Foodstuff continues.

It’s been a month since they launched in Oxford, and while most days everything has gone super well, there have been late deliveries and there was one occasion when Foodstuff couldn’t cope with the demand and closed our shop during the busiest two hours of the week. We are doing everything we can to work together to make sure that everything only gets better for you from here on in. Thank you to everyone for your patience and support so far.

Get 50% off your first order with the code TIBET50. Head to the ,Foodstuff website or download the new Foodstuff app through the App Store or Google Play.

See you soon!
