Emerging eateries

Now open for noshin'!

Carol Smaglinski April 4th, 2012

Restaurants and markets have been opening in spots all over the metro. Hearty and enjoyable, there’s a little something for everyone.

Birrieria Don Arthur’s

1933 N. MacArthur Blvd.


No frills or pretense in this colorful eatery, which features the sort of cuisine that is a rarity in an Oklahoma Mexican joint. On the menu you’ll find goat, lamb, tripe as well as the more ubiquitous Mexican foods. The relatively new restaurant appears to be doing well, with customers coming back for more.

Hy Palace and Pho Kim Long

1133 N.w. 23rd


Only open for a few weeks at this address are two concepts under one roof. One side, Pho Kim Long, specializes in long-simmered soup and noodles, while the other side, Hy Palace, focuses on Chinese and Vietnamese entrées and seafood. You can’t go wrong with bubble tea, ice cream or che — say “jaa,” which means “goodbye” in Vietnamese — a dessert dish with fruit and coconut milk.

Holder Brothers Beef

15220 N. Western, Edmond


This meat market specializes in dry-aged, flavor-filled beef. Purchase all cuts, from steaks to roasts, or come in and buy smoked brisket or tri-tip to heat up at home. Have difficulty finding Holder Brothers? Just look right below the Shoppes at Veranda shopping center tower. Hours are 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except Sunday, when it is open from 1 to 5 p.m.

Cafe Veranda

15220 N. Western, Edmond


The weather is nicer, so try out the patio at this newer eatery. Looking for pizza or pasta or a grilled chicken sandwich? Sure, but it’s those good burgers that are the topsellers. For dessert, go next door to Berri Licious, also owned by the Cafe Veranda owners and get frozen yogurt, cookies, cupcakes, coffee and tea.

$$ Italian


2262 w. Main, Norman


This farm-to-fork concept is tucked in the Normandy Creek Shopping Center at 24th Avenue N.W. and W. Main Street in Norman. Chef Ryan Parrott developed a fresh and innovative menu for the restaurant, which includes an open kitchen, patio, bar and retail space for meals onthe-go. There is a fantastic area just for the little ones, with a nursery, movie cave, reading space, playhouses and more.

$$$ American

La Taqueria Mexican Fusion

5805 N.w. 50th, Warr Acres


On your visit to this weeks-old spot, be sure to order the chicken tortilla soup and then move on to a number of Mexican items from tacos, flavorful fajitas, burritos, quesadillas and salads. For dessert, try a brownie and oatmeal-raisin cookie.

TeaLicious Bakery & Takery

200 S.E. 19th, Moore


TeaLicious opened in the middle of March and has chicken salad, of course, but what’s hot is its broccoli cornbread. You can buy deviled eggs, fruit cups and more. For your sweet tooth, there is a chocolate-peanut butter cupcake and the Rockefeller, a threelayer chocolate pudding.
