OKG7 places you should try

Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

Jenn Scott August 28th, 2013

Looking to enjoy a meal from a place outside your regular restaurant rotation? Give these seven spots a try.

Roma’s Gelato Cafe Espresso & Panini

301 S. Bryant Ave., Edmond


As the name would suggest, it clearly has more to offer than the delectable Italian ice. Try one of its gelato cakes or gelato hand-dipped popsicles. For a tasty meal, try one of its panini, tramezzini or other sandwiches, all made with ingredients imported from Italy.

HD’s Onion Burgers

12417 N. Rockwell Ave.

Did you know that HD’s also has a steak sandwich, a BLT and a hamburger steak? Well, it does. Along with chilicheese hot dogs. Of course, you can always stick with the traditional onion burger. Wash it all down with a milkshake or malt.

The Greek Taverna
122 N. Broadway Ave., Moore

At The Greek Taverna, you’ll be treated like you’re part of the family — the Mendros family, to be exact. This authentic, family-centric restaurant opened in May of 2012 and serves Greek plate specials, gyro sandwiches, veggie wraps and a traditional chicken or beef souvlaki.

In the Raw
200 S. Oklahoma Ave.

Prepare for a feast. Start with the ahi tuna nachos, crispy wontons topped with fresh, blackened tuna, avocado and a creamy jalapeno sauce. For lunch, get a teriyaki bowl starting at $6. For dinner, try the Oh My Goodness roll, crispy soft-shell crab, salmon and avocado.

Haiget’s Restaurant & Catering

308 W. Edmond Rd., Edmond

At this Ethiopian sweet spot, get a traditional yetelba fitfit, roasted and ground flax mixed with veggies and shredded injera. Try its siga wot, a spicy cooked beef with traditional seasonings or ataklit alicha, a cabbage, carrots and potatoes dish with onions and traditional spices.

Ol’ Gyro
3513 N. Classen Blvd.

You won’t be surprised by the menu. But you might be surprised how delicious the food is. Definitely get the hummus and baba ghanoush, which comes with plenty of pita bread for dipping. For the main course, try its chicken schawarma, veggie plate or classic gyro.

Baluu Restaurant

7925 N.W. 10th St., Bethany

From Chinese noodle soup to fried rice specials, there’s plenty to choose from. Try the banh hoi section, a variety of Vietnamese hand-rolled spring rolls, or the dinner pho, a Vietnamese beef noodle soup. There are things on the menu you might not expect, including pork chops and meatloaf.
