333 W. Sheridan
Lots of things are exciting about Aravalli in Devon tower. For one, it’s a great spot for lunch. Grab menu items like pork carnitas burritos or corn and potato chowder. Don’t forget the dessert, either. It offers pastries, cookies and truffles. Get a cup of fresh-brewed Illy coffee, from an Italian bean, to go with your treats.
Hummus Mediterranean Cafe
811 S.W. 19th, Moore
Looking for possibly the freshest hummus in town? Start with a restaurant named after the stuff. It’s not just the garbonzo beans that get special treatment. Try the fried kibbeh, hand-formed meatballs with cracked wheat, or muhammara, a roasted bell-pepper-and-walnut blend.
825 N.W. 12th, Moore
Dine in and jam to some tunes while you enjoy delicious, authentic Mexican cuisine. Try the daily special or order one of the dinner plates. From smothered burritos to fajitas and steak, each meal comes with a side of beans and rice as well as sour cream and guacamole.
County Line Bakery
121 E. Waterloo, Edmond
Planning an Alice in Wonderland-themed birthday party? County Line can handle it. Need an armadillo cake? County Line can handle that, too. The place has plenty of experience meeting unique cake and cookie requests, but feel free to stop in for some confections straight from the case, which is stocked fresh daily.
New Mandarin Chinese & American Restaurant
6909 S. May
No surprises here! If you’re hankering for authentic Chinese cuisine, New Mandarin has you covered. Start with egg drop soup, and don’t pass on the egg rolls. Move your way to a beef-and-broccoli course or fresh-made sesame chicken, a house specialty.
Legends Food & Sport
2130 S. Division, Guthrie
Stick with traditional sports grill fare like fried pickles or egg rolls, or stay on the healthier side of things with a chunky chicken salad, which comes atop mixed greens. To wash it down, try one of Legends “trophies” like Owner’s Box — Crown Royal, amaretto, simple syrup and bitters.
Hubbly Bubbly Hookah & Café
2900 N. Classen Blvd.
Doesn’t just the name of the place sound like it would be fun to visit? That assumption would be correct. Hubbly Bubbly displays the work of local artists, hosts art shows and serves food like tasty sandwiches and veggies and banana split waffles. All this plus a chill atmosphere to smoke hookah.
