Vietnamese comfort food

I’ve always had a love affair with the refreshing, healthy cuisine of Vietnam. I love the fragrances, the fresh herbs, cilantro, basil, mint and other Asian herbs: perilla, Vietnamese coriander and sawtooth cilantro. And I love the contrast and balance in almost every dish: spicy vs. cool, salty vs. sweet and steamed vs. crispy.

OKG eat: Cool places, cooler drinks

We know. It’s hot. It’s summer in Oklahoma. Cool down by sampling cocktails that local bars and restaurants have concocted just for you. Find a nice, air conditioned space or a shaded patio and while away the hours drinking the flavors of summer. You might decide it’s not that bad after all.

Restaurant Reviews

Christina Nihira
A few decades back, quiche got a bad reputation for being too delicate. Chef LaDonna Andeel is a friendly lady who is quick to point out that, at LD’s Specialties & Gourmet Cafe, real men do eat quiche.

Doug Hill
Ricky’s Cafe is an impressive, freestanding Spanish colonial-style building in a bustling strip mall. It’s maroon and pink outside with a brick-colored tile roof. Although named “cafe,” Ricky’s is closer to being a fancy restaurant than a snack bar or coffee shop.
