This authentic Thai restaurant expanded its family-owned joint, which initially opened in 2007. The second location offers the same great service customers know and love as well as the exceptional menu that created a loyal base of Thai food junkies. Enjoy its lunch combo, ranging from selections of red curry chicken to basil pork or mixed veggies. For dinner, try the fried tofu and gravy noodles (rad nah).

This is the third location for the locally owned seafood spot. It’s a quick, casual dining experience reminiscent of a day at sea, minus the seasickness and drunken sailors. Try its lunch and dinner specials, which include fried jumbo shrimp, freshcut fries and sides like macaroni and cheese or corn nuggets. It has a full salad bar, as well as house-made desserts.
La brasa Peruvian kitchen
1310 nW 25th St. labrasaokc.com 524-2251
It’s a fresh new take on fusion, blending Peruvian classics with South American flavors and modern-day dining tweaks. The star of the kitchen is its ceviche, which is served in an aji amarillo or rocoto sauce. The specialty — a world-famous dish and inspiration for the restaurant — is pollo a la brasa, a marinated and chargrilled whole organic chicken.
