Lamb Kabob Sandwich

Couscous Café
Moroccan dishes served simply is the mission of Couscous Café, and for three years, the small eatery has made good on that promise. Tagines, kebabs and plenty of vegetarian options fill the expansive menu, and zeroing in on the perfect meal is a difficult task. The lamb kabob sandwich is one option that doesn’t disappoint. Tender, juicy lamb is topped with lettuce, tomato, red onion, pickles and a Moroccan sauce and wrapped in soft bread. Served with fries, it’s an ideal mix of the familiar and the exotic: A taste of the Mediterranean in OKC. 6165 N. May Ave., Oklahoma City.

Steamed Mussels

Steamed mussels is one of the simplest dishes to master, yet few home cooks ever attempt it. But why bother when KEO serves such a tasty Asian version of the classic? Fresh mussels are steamed in a broth fortified with red curry and white wine. Coconut milk and fresh Thai basil add freshness to this dish, which is listed on the appetizers menu but could easily be consumed as a light supper. The mussels are outstanding, but the star of the dish is the broth, spicy with curry and salty from the mussels’ seawater brine. Be sure to sop or slurp every last drop. 3524 S. Peoria Ave.; 8921 S. Yale Ave., #A, Tulsa.
