Try some of the recipes we’re cooking and stay inspired.
The style of cooking at Amazing Thai Cuisine is centered in the heart of Southeast Asia, and emphasizes grand dishes that lean toward the light and healthy while also being highly flavorful.
Chef Alfredo Vargas marries two beloved dining traditions at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino’s Buffet: authentic and unique dishes and all-you-can-eat options.
Breakfast: It’s the most important meal of the day. Do you treat yourself to it? If not, why not? Not only does breakfast supercharge you and get your metabolism going, especially if you opt for healthy proteins and nutritious fruits and vegetables. It also boosts your mood, especially if you spend it with family and friends or have some “me” time with that extra cup of coffee before you tackle your busy daily activities.
Going out for breakfast can be one of the best treats you’ll give yourself. Imagine all the delectable food and drinks you can enjoy in a restaurant that you simply won’t get around to making at home. From a classic breakfast of eggs and bacon cooked for you so you can leisurely chat with pals, to a gigantic homemade cinnamon roll so soft you know you’d never make it successfully in your own kitchen, the breakfast options are many, fun, delicious and surprisingly affordable.
Give yourself a chance to get away from your cereal and oatmeal with a visit to one of Green Country’s favorite spots for a substantial breakfast any day of the week. Here are some of the hot spots you have to visit. Some are old favorites, others are edgy and fresh, but all of them will have you coming back for more.
In the heat of an Oklahoman summer, there is nothing better than a frozen, sweet dessert to take your mind off the soaring temperatures. Ice cream and its happy cousins — shakes, malts, floats, frozen custards, gelato, shaved ice and other cold delights — have been around for a long time.
The ancient Greeks ate a dessert similar to ice cream, Marco Polo brought an early form of the dessert to Europe, and the first American ice cream parlor opened in New York in 1776, just in time for the American Revolution. Who could blame Ben Franklin and George Washington if they wanted to pay less in tea taxes so they could eat more sweet, creamy coolness?
Thankfully for us, ice cream is not only around today, but thriving. Here in Green Country, you can find plenty of frozen treats wherever you go — north, south, east and west, all over Tulsa and the surrounding area.
To get you started, here’s our list of best places to chill your bones with some delicious ice cream and other frozen sweets.
Mud cats, polliwogs and chuckleheads. You know what those are, right? If you aren’t familiar with them by now, they’re all names for our favorite freshwater bottom-feeder, the catfish. Oklahomans know how to catch them, in traditional ways and not so traditional. But most of all, we know how to eat them. In fact, Americans all over the country love to eat them, to the tune of half-a-trillion dollars worth a year.
In Green Country, a good catfish dinner comes in all sorts of ways to please the most demanding of palates. You can enjoy these soft white filets with traditional fish fry or picnic-style sides like tasty hush puppies, fried okra, corn on the cob or a bowl of homemade coleslaw. Whether you order it baked or fried or some other way, you can get your catfish the way you want it — just as long as there’s a bottle of ketchup, fresh tartar sauce or hot sauce handy.
However you take yours, there are plenty of places in the Tulsa area to get your catfish on. Here are some suggestions where you can bone up on your love for the catfish dinner.
Fries…chips…potato wedges…thin cut and thick cut… straw fries…cheese-topped potato slices… Whatever you want to call their many variations, french fries delight Americans so much that we eat an estimated 29 to 30 pounds of them per person every year. Fries are such a versatile side dish that they can be served in tons of ways — plainly salted with ketchup, dusted with special herb mixes, cheesed up, spicy jalapeno covered, and even sweetened.
That much crispy, carbolicious goodness can’t be wrong. Or at least not so wrong that you should avoid it all the time. When you go out for a treat with your pals, hit the bars or take the children out for dinner, this tasty side dish is waiting for you with anticipation. It’s worth treating yourself, especially when you find fries served in a way that is uniquely outstanding.
We’ve compiled our list of favorite spots around Green Country to enjoy the best of the best in fries. To narrow the list to a manageable level (in other words, less than the entire magazine’s length), we eliminated the obvious places to get a quick fix, like fast food joints, as well as the plainly salted kind that you can find just about anywhere.
In other words, we’re highlighting Green Country’s most unusual, most special, and most favorite fries so you can eat your way around town in style.
Warm sun, spring breezes, fresh air… Ah, it’s the perfect time to be outside and enjoy the gorgeous spring weather. You’ve been cooped up to avoid the cold for too long, right? You’re ready to emerge from winter’s hibernation and reach out to friends and loved ones to get caught up on the latest news.
And what better way to do both than to enjoy some snacks and drinks outside?
You can do that with ease, making a day of it by shopping, supporting local businesses and grabbing eats and drinks on one of the area’s many patios. Yes, Green Country has many restaurants, cafés, coffee shops and bars that offer outdoor seating.
Some are casual and laid back, allowing you to put up your feet and have long talks with close pals. Others spots offer fantastic views of downtown Tulsa’s skyline, or opportunities to people watch in the busy Brookside, Cherry Street or Brady Districts. Some are secluded, perfect for an intimate drink or dinner with your significant other. All are ideal for enjoying the spring and summer in style.
So, now that spring has fully sprung and warm, sunny, breezy weather is here to stay, make plans to visit our list of Green Country’s 43 best patios.
