Vietnamese comfort food

Settle in for home cooking Vietnamese-style at this cozy little restaurant.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
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.

Tantalizing tapioca

You’ve had it in your calendar all year — well, maybe you haven’t — but now it’s here; Saturday is National Tapioca Day.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Your grandmother probably made tapioca pudding, an old-fashioned comfort food, for dessert and also had a few boxes tucked away in her pantry. Now slightly more difficult to find, tapioca pudding has fallen a bit out of popularity.

Broadway choppers

Construction starts on a pair of new restaurant and bar concepts in Midtown.


Food and Drink Features

Devon Green
Jeff Dixon and Aaron Soward were eating lunch and throwing around the idea that they could combine their experience and strike out for themselves. They had many combined years of experience, and both came up in the Hal Smith Restaurant Group restaurants around the Oklahoma City metro area. Dixon was the manager who opened Upper Crust Wood Fired Pizza at Classen Curve, and Soward was the general manager at Redrock Canyon Grill, 9221 Lake Hefner Parkway. Both men were ready for a change and felt confident that they were ready to tackle their own restaurant concept.

Tantalizing tortas

This Mexican sandwich is a delight any time of the day.


Food and Drink Features

Angela Botzer
Torta, in Spanish-speaking countries, usually means “a loaf or cake”; but in Mexico, it means a tasty, traditional sandwich, and no two tortas are alike. Tortas roughly resemble sandwiches, but the bread and fillings are what sets them apart from lesser combinations of ingredients and some sort of bread.
