Oxford Food Favorites: 15 Under $15, pt. 4: Tarasque Cucina
After living in Oxford, Mississippi, for almost 14 years, it can sometimes feel like I’ve exhausted everything our town has to offer—especially on the culinary scene. I’ve worked in special events for over six years and in the food service industry directly and indirectly during that time, but food has remained a personal and professional passion. I have compiled for the new-to-Oxford and the settled some inside scoop of 15 food bites for under $15, making living deliciously more affordable than ever.
For the Necessity of Comfort Food
Tarasque is my favorite pasta in North Mississippi. Maybe it’s because the food has been carefully crafted with love, maybe it’s the exquisite chef tastings, maybe it’s the $9–14 pasta entrees and lemon vin and garbanzo bean spinach salad . . . but I’d have to guess it’s the Lauren hugs and John Stokes jokes accompanying each pickup that make this place so special.
