Among the many perks of living at Springs and May Lakes and Springs at Memorial is their proximity to excellent restaurants that are perfect when you want to eat out with friends and family, or just grab a quick bite for lunch. We've put together a list of four of our favorite places to go to for Asian cuisine:
1. Gorō Ramen + Izakaya
1634 N Blackwelder, Suite 102
A traditional Japanese izakaya is a place for businessmen to visit after a long day at work to enjoy tasty grilled items, noodles, beer, and other friendly fare—a tradition Gorō carries on stateside. Open daily from 4 p.m. to midnight or later, with weekend lunch hours, there's something for everyone at this restaurant from the steamed pork buns to customer-favorite vegetarian and vegan options like the tofu and roasted vegetables ramen.
2. Super Cao Nguyen
2668 N Military Ave.
Open from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day, Super Cao Nguyen is arguably Oklahoma City's best Southeastern Asian market. When you want to make authentic Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, or Thai food, this is the place to go for top-notch ingredients. Super Cao Nguyen has a large selection of Asian vegetables, frozen items, sauces, canned goods, and fresh meat and fish—plus a great, affordable lunch counter with freshly made sushi and a bakery offering steamed buns and other breads. Go for the groceries, and return with a light lunch.
3. VII Pho & Asian Bistro
2900 N Classen Blvd., Suite G
Blending Chinese and Vietnamese food, VII Pho & Asian Bistro is a favorite lunch spot with many meals costing under $8 per person. With Pho in the name, you know this hot, filling Vietnamese soup is the star of the menu, but the salt-and-pepper calamari and spring rolls are equally as tempting. The restaurant has an online delivery system, so you can easily order and enjoy a meal without leaving your apartment home.
VII Pho & Asian Bistro is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sundays.
4. Szechuan Bistro
1010 W Memorial Rd.
Szechuan Bistro serves the best of spicy, delicious Szechuan cuisine every day from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., but they also offer an American-palate friendly menu for those with less adventurous tastebuds. Consider the Steamed Fish in Spicy Sauce or the Double Cooked Pork for a new treat, or go with their more traditional American-Chinese fusion lunch menu.
