Preston: Tipsy Chef street food restaurant to open in April

An exciting new street food restaurant is opening in Lancashire – and the menu looks delicious.

Tipsy Chef arrives at Preston’s Market Hall, serving classic street food dishes including boa buns, smash burgers, dirty fries, freakshakes and more.

Chef and owner Jay Oates says he can’t wait for locals to sample his dishes and hopes to be open in early April.

He said: “I can’t wait for people in Preston to try my food and hope to bring something new to the table that people might not have tried before.

“We will also have weekly specials, so keep your eyes peeled for those.

“I will source most of my ingredients from traders in the nearby market, fresh every morning. We will also use biodegradable take-out containers whenever possible.

“A liquor license has been requested, we intend to add lager, IPA, wine and cocktails to our menu.

“We are very excited about this opportunity to open our new business in Preston’s Market Hall and aim to be open by Saturday 2nd April, we look forward to welcoming you soon at Tipsy Chef”

Jay is an experienced chef with 10 years of experience, three of which as a chef de cuisine.

Co-owner Rebecca Taylor-Oats will lend a hand and possibly be a familiar face, as she has worked at Preston Markets’ family fruit and veg stand, Fresh and Fruity, and has done so for over 10 years.

Councilor Robert Boswell, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety at Preston City Council, said:

“It’s great to welcome a new business, Tipsy Chef, to Market Hall. Preston Markets has seen many successful businesses start up over the years, I’m sure Tipsy Chef will thrive, as will other businesses.

The menu looks delicious and is something totally new to the markets. I am sure it will be very popular with customers.

As always, I encourage the people of Preston to continue to support these local businesses and take advantage of what Preston Markets and its traders have to offer.

Tipsy Chef will be located in the old unit of Pickles of Preston, opposite Redman’s and will be open Tuesday to Saturday, 8am to 5pm.
