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 Pho
The Asian District is best experienced through food, and it's hard to beat this traditional Vietnamese noodle soup. Favorites with the locals include VII Asian Bistro, 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 eclectic vibe of this district.
