The way of the Samurai is to prepare simple but solid sushi that will have you roll back for more.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Never doubt the power of one bad meal. I visited Samurai (1630 NW 23rd St.) when it opened a few years ago and did not feel the need to return. The sushi was not good. I remember the tempura batter being sharp. Like, it hurt my mouth to eat.

Pollo outlet

El Pollo Chulo’s chicken is so tasty, it’s pimp, yo!


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
Depending on who you trust, El Pollo Chulo could have several meanings. Google decided it means “The Pimp Chicken,” and if I’m being completely honest, this is the definition I want to believe is true..

Gimme a break

Breakfast items vary from country to country but have one thing in common: they are delicious.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
You know you need breakfast before you go on an all-day holiday shopping trip, but all you currently have in your kitchen is ketchup, a can of tuna and some okra because there’s no time to shop for groceries. Bored to tears of the traditional American breakfast of eggs, bacon and toast? Take a trip around the world, treat yourself before noon and get your holiday shopping on.

OKG7 Open Christmas


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
Christmas can be a trying time, what with being surrounded by family and holiday cheer. For those who need an escape, a good drink, a bite to eat or all three, several bars around the metro will be open. These may not be places where everyone knows your name, but you can head to these friendly watering holes to celebrate — or to forget — holidays.

Head to the central business district in downtown Oklahoma City for lunch options including fine dining and casual stops. Whether you’re just downtown for the day, it’s your day in court, it’s a business lunch, you’re trying to impress the boss (or vice versa) or you just want to be surrounded by tall buildings, find a parking spot and grab some grub.

Miracle on Classen Boulevard

Inside Casa De Los Milagros’ inviting palatial exterior are the wonders of well-prepared Tex-Mex cuisine.


Restaurant Reviews

Doug Hill

Casa De Los Milagros Mexican Restaurant and Cantina 

5111 N. Classen Blvd.

286-9809


What worked: pretty much everything

What needs work: Borracho beans had an unpleasant flavor.

The Tip: The salsa is real. It’s spiked liberally with jalapeño and fresh cilantro.

It’s a boisterous sports bar that wants to be your friend. With several locations, that’s easy.

 Grabbing lunch at the Norman location of Louie’s Grill & Bar on a University of Oklahoma football game day right before halftime was not as crackers as you might expect.

Drum right

No offense to the Okarche economy, but great fried chicken can be found right here in the metro, at The Drum Room.


Restaurant Reviews

Greg Elwell
If you think the only way to get good fried chicken is by driving 45 minutes to the west, I have good news.

Kiss my political buns

These days, businesses are good at sharing polarizing opinions ... but is sharing polarizing opinions good for business?


Food and Drink Features

Malena Lott

When ordering a burger, a side dish of politics may be served free of charge. In Oklahoma, that typically means dishing out conservative opinions blaming Obamacare and/ or President Barack Obama for, well, fill in the blank. But is it a bad marketing strategy or a good way to make the cash register ring?

OKG7 inventive breakfasts


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
Inventive options around the metro shake up the bacon-and-egg breakfast. Sure, there is a time and place for the old favorites, but why not have some fun, too? Bacon and sausage may think they hold a monopoly on breakfast, but they take a backseat to turkey, chicken and even lobster on these menus. Some places even substitute tofu and soy for meat, and odds are you’ll never miss the pork.

OKG7 pie dreams


OKG7 Dining

Kelley Chambers
On the television show Twin Peaks, FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper couldn’t get enough cherry pie at the Twin Peaks Double R Diner. (Don’t even get him started on the damn fine coffee around town.) He raved about the pie at every opportunity, and you too will find reasons to celebrate pie, especially during the holidays. These metro favorites surely would far exceed Agent Cooper’s insatiable lust for fantastic pie.

A taste for tagine

This iconic Mediterranean stew can’t be found just anywhere. Here’s where to get it.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer

Craving something Mediterranean but different? Try a tagine, the iconic dish of Morocco. Pronounced “tah-ZHEEN,” it refers to both the ceramic cooking vessel and any braised stew cooked in it.

As temperatures cool, it’s time to replace summer salads with a heartier meal. Oklahoma is home to several specialty meat shops that will satisfy your craving for savory sausages, roast beef and more — all made in-house.
