Smag 7: Round the world in 7 dishes


Carol Smaglinski November 2nd, 2011

Passport expired? Don’t fret. Take a trip around the world right in the metro, giving you the pleasure of eating great dishes from exotic places. You don’t even have to wait in the security line or check any baggage.

Humble Pie Pizza
1319 S. Broadway, Edmond 715-1818

Authentic pizza from New York and Chicago, owners Matthew and Joyanne Heard take pride in their pies. Customers nod approvingly at its most popular pizza, the Greek Goddess. Just recently the Heards revised their hours to do away with weekday lunches and now serve dinner Tuesday-Thursday, 4-9 p.m.; Friday 4-10 p.m.; Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m.-8 p.m.

$$$ American/Italian


La Baguette Bistro
7408 N. May Ave. 840-3047

La Baguette Bistro, still cooking after all these years, has a clear French identity. Brunch on the weekends is usually filled with people enjoying its well-put-together Bonjour Paris. That dish consists of scrambled eggs, with bacon or ham, and Swiss tucked in a warmed croissant. Top honors go to the Suzi a la Dijonnaise, shaved ham and asparagus in a dijon cream sauce.

$$$ French


Fusion Cafe

1224 N. Broadway, Moore 799-4900

Ever tried goat meat? It happens to be the most eaten meat in the world. Yet, a lot of Americans shy away from it, but Koreans in Oklahoma are seeking out Fusion Cafe just for its goat stew. That is a rich soup made with tender goat meat, as well as the addition of traditional Korean spices. Lap up its spicy potato stew and its Koreanstyle wings, as well.

$$ Korean


Yakimono
3131 W. Memorial Rd. 607-8134

Chic, casual and bursting with energy, Yakimono puts a stylish spin on its variations of sushi. Its fish is flown in fresh every day. This restaurant is open daily, and its exceptional food guarantees a crowd. Order at the counter, and the quickly prepared food with simplified cooking methods comes out fast to your table.

$$$ Japanese


Ingrid’s Kitchen

3701 N. Youngs Blvd. 946-8444

This is a no-frills, respectable restaurant that has earned its reputation for first-rate German food and sandwiches. The Grobe Bratwurst is tremendous, along with German potato salad, red cabbage and sauerkraut. Above all, don’t miss its authentic German bienenstich, a sponge cake soaked with sauce and filled with almond icing. Not too soft, not too sweet: just right.

$$ German


Casa Dos Milagros
5111 N. Classen Blvd. 286-9809

Owner Julian Gonzalez made a promise to himself that he would bring food from different regions of Mexico for Oklahomans to enjoy. And he has. He features fish tacos from the southern part of Baja, Calif.; empanadas from Cabo San Lucas and mole poblano from Puebla, Mexico. Don’t miss the Day of the Dead altars on display at Milagros until Nov. 14.

$$ Mexican


1492
1207 N. Walker 236-1492

At 1492, the food focus is on New World Latin cuisine, with a few new menu items that they recently started dishing up. Patrons discovered the popular seafood enchiladas and the avocado chimichurri rib-eye. A classic is one of the specials: Pabellón, a Venezuelan shredded brisket that is paired with Spanish rice, beans and fried plantains.
