Can't Miss Meals

Karee Gai from Senae Thai Bistro

It doesn’t get more comforting than this. Roasted chicken, potatoes, and scallions are simmered in yellow curry and coconut milk.

Futomaki Roll from Sushi on Oracle

You could order almost anything at Sushi on Oracle and be delighted with your choice. Branch out with their futomaki roll, a traditional Japanese roll usually eaten at lunch time.

Beef Phở from Com Tam Thuan Kieu

Phở with rare steak, brisket, tendon, tripe, and beef meatballs. Served with the classic table salad of basil, cilantro, and bean sprout. The restaurant name may be hard to remember, but the pho is unforgettable. (Check out eight more of our favorite local soups.) 1990 W. Orange Grove Road

Stew in Tongue-Numbing Flaming Chile Oil over Cabbage from Jun Dynasty

The title alone should make beads of sweat pop on your forehead. Choose from tofu, chicken, pork, beef, or fish. The broth comes loaded with so many peppercorns that food will be tasting spicy long after you finish the stew. 2933 E. Grant Road

Samosas from Twisted Tandoor

Some more samosa? The beef and feta samosas come stuffed with a filling of ground beef, potatoes, Serrano peppers, feta cheese, and Indian spices. All that stuffed in a lard-free tortilla and deep fried? Yes please.

Kalbi-gui from SV Home Korean Restaurant

They’re sort of like grilled short ribs, but so much better. These beef ribs come marinated in homemade Korean barbeque sauce. Served with steamed rice and an array of traditional side dishes. 45 S. Garden Ave., Sierra Vista

Veggie Tempura Bento Box from Yoshimatsu

Putting a different spin on the idea of a lunch box, this bento box comes packed with veggie tempura, house-pickled cabbage, salad, curried potato, seaweed salad, nye-men noodles, edamame, and tempura sauce.

Pictured: kimchi; house rice with wild black rice, white rice, sweet rice, fish cake, house tomato and cucumber salad, house potato salad, kaktugi, kimchi (Korean radish). 2900 E. Broadway Blvd.
