Upward mobility

Locals can have fresh microgreens and herbs for cooking in a new and convenient way. Microgreens, a chef favorite, are petite vegetable greens that add color, nutrition and flavor to dishes.

Vietnamese comfort food

I’ve always had a love affair with the refreshing, healthy cuisine of Vietnam. I love the fragrances, the fresh herbs, cilantro, basil, mint and other Asian herbs: perilla, Vietnamese coriander and sawtooth cilantro. And I love the contrast and balance in almost every dish: spicy vs. cool, salty vs. sweet and steamed vs. crispy.

OKG eat: Cool places, cooler drinks

We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.

New kids on the block

There are a wealth of new local eateries cropping up in the metro and even more coming. If they’re not on your radar, they should be. From the comfy atmosphere at The Barrel on Western Avenue to the laid-back vibe at the Plaza District’s coffee shop, you might find a new regular hangout.

The Stuffed Olive


A south OKC sandwich shop serves up delicious and fresh options for those wanting to stay local.

Oklahoma City and the surrounding metro are replete with many a chain deli restaurant, but none of those places do it quite like The Stuffed Olive.


“We have a lot of regulars who get the same thing every time,” Durow said. “Some of them come in for dinner multiple times a week and just order whatever special we have that night.”

Those dinner specials — rib-eye steaks, lasagna, Alfredo pasta and pork tenderloin can pop up on any given night — are starting to gain a following of their own. They are sold until gone, and being that there is no full dinner menu (other than the sandwiches, soups and salads), they can go fast.

The homemade food is just a little better than what you can find at home and pairs well with the cozy, modest atmosphere that nods to bistro ambience: open, airy and nearly always filled with lively, talkative guests.

All in all, The Stuffed Olive seems to be successful in its endeavor to make food that makes one feel right at home.

“There aren’t many strangers in here.

People see their neighbors,” Durow said. “We have a lot of customers, but they all seem to be close-knit. It’s a good community over here.”

Oklahoma Gazette’s restaurant review policy is to highlight the positive aspects, and include constructive criticism regarding food, ambience or service when appropriate.
