Last weekend, we took a mini vacation to Oklahoma City/Norman. Matt always refers to the OKC/Norman area as "my hood" but so much has changed in the last 12-13 years, it's almost unrecognizable. Good grief, has it really been that long?! It doesn't feel that long, but when you see it in print, it kinda stings a little.
Yes, they have a kids menu. You pick your meat (i.e. roasted chicken, pork, etc), rice or noodles, and an egg roll. Christian mostly played with the noodles, but he ate all his chicken...I think Matt ate the egg roll. The portion was a good amount. His belly was sticking out...that's how we know he's full. It's like the thing in your Thanksgiving turkey that pops out when it's done.
Matt had something similar to what Christian had. I appreciated that nothing was greasy...everything tasted clean.
I had the banh mi sandwich. I think I saw it on his website and that was really the only thing I wanted to try. I think since it's 115 degrees outside (I'm not exaggerating), the thought of hot soup didn't sound appealing. I'll come back in the fall for that :) So, you get to choose what kind of meat you want, so I chose the roasted chicken. (See vegetarians, this is a sandwich you could have - no meat! Still would be tasty). I've never had a banh-mi, but it was SO GOOD. The bread was soft and toasted (and local!), the veggies were fresh, the chicken just came out of the roaster...Mmmmmm....I want one now!! It really was good folks. If you're ever in Norman, you should really give this place a try.
Now I know what you all are thinking...he's your friend! Of course you're not going to say anything bad, but it really was delicious. Matt is one of the pickiest eaters and he loved it. He even liked the soy sauce, LOL. They use a Maggi brand. Matt then says, "Well it ain't no Kikkoman!" Jokingly of course. Way to sound like a hillbilly husband.
Hands down though, if I lived closer, I would be a regular.
This is Chris - I always like to put a face with the name. He's single laaaaadiiees ;) Ambitious, smart, funny...basically he has his $h!t together :) Stop by and see him sometime ;) Heehee...sorry Chris, but just trying to get the word out about your awesomeness. =D
