Oklahoma City’s foodie scene is alive and well in the Asian District, where an influx of Vietnamese immigrants in the 1970s created a hub now known for its Asian fusion cuisine. Here you will find some of the best Asian restaurants in OKC, including authentic Vietnamese food that rivals any found this side of the Pacific.
Grab a bowl of Phõ
The Asian District is best experienced through food, and it's hard to beat this traditional Vietnamese noodle soup. Favorites with the locals include Pho Cuong and Pho Lien Hoa.
Eat beyond Asia
The district's culinary influences travel far beyond Asian cuisine. Be sure to visit Cafe Kacao for a Guatemalan-style brunch. Or grab a cup-of-joe and a vegetarian meal from The Red Cup, another café that perfectly captures the bohemian and ecclectic vibe of this district.
Get your retail kicks
Local retailer Prairie Gothic recently renovated the 1930s Milk Bottle Building, one of Route 66's most iconic buildings. The shop carries local art and curated finds from local estate sales and thrift stores, with mid-Century charm that perfectly matches their Mother Road location.
N.W. 23rd St. & Classen Blvd.
Of course, the guide above is just a sampling of what there is to taste, see and do in the district.
