Bulgogi at Seoul Bistro

Korean is done right at Seoul Bistro, this small restaurant tucked away in a shopping center in east Tulsa. The simple décor and simple menu highlights the delicious complexity of tastes and flavors on the menu. Traditional Korean dishes, such as the Jajangmyun – thick wheat noodles topped with pork, cabbage, onions and cucumbers in black bean paste – or Tangsuyuk – Korean-style sweet and sour pork with vegetables – are offered at this family-run restaurant. But it’s the bulgogi  – Korean-style marinated barbecue, tossed with vegetables in a sauce that is sweet and spicy at the same time – that will keep you coming back. Choose from beef, pork or chicken bulgogi, and each meal is served with rice and banchan. It’s one Korean meal for the ages. 3161 S. 129th E. Ave., Suite N, Tulsa. www.seoulbistro.yolasite.com

The Cuban at Lottinvilles

The expansive menu at Lottinvilles Restaurant offers diners a choice of virtually everything under the sun – steaks, seafood, enchiladas, burgers, you name it. But it’s the sandwiches at Lottinvilles that shine, namely The Cuban. An innovative take on the original, this sandwich is piled high with ham, salami, pork carnitas, Swiss cheese, pickles and spicy mustard and is pressed between two pieces of housemade bolillo bread and cooked under a brick over hardwood. The crispy bread gives way to the juiciness of pork and the creaminess of the Swiss, spiced up by the mustard. It’s a monster of a sandwich, and one that will satiate even the largest appetite. 801 Signal Ridge Dr., Edmond. www.lottinvillesrestaurant.com
