We headed off to Campus corner, Dave dropped us off at the cafe so we could get a table and he went to find a parking spot. We had never been to this particular place and were in for a treat. This place specializes in Asian food and teas of all types. After getting a menu, Christie got the Sweet and Sour Chicken, Dave and I tried their rice box meal which is quite clever, you get to choose your meal and what you would like to have. You get soup, spring roll, rice, choice of steamed egg or fried cream cheese wanton. Dave got the wanton I got the steamed egg which was delicious . He got beef, I got chicken with all the vegetables offered. We both got the brown rice. Christie ordered a Boba tea, which is an iced, milked, black tea with boba or more commonly known as large tapioca balls (that taste like chocolate gummy bears) layering the bottom of the glass, Yum! So I got one as well. Dave never gets hot tea but decided that he wanted some Earl Grey. The price was not too bad. It came to about $10.00 a person and we ended up taking food home. We will go back.
The next day I read about a new little Mexican restaurant in Norman in our student run campus newspaper. Los Vaqueros located in Robinson Crossing at Robinson and I-35. It was a basic little hole in the wall with no frills decor, but the service was great, food was good, muy bueno, less denaro than the night before, we will return.
We started off with very fresh chips, salsa, cheese queso and a very spicy salsa, not for the faint of heart. Warm flour and corn tortillas. Our dinner was out on our table in less than 10 minutes.
