Norman fans cheer a booming restaurant sector

Norman has good food offerings all over town.

Mamaveca Mexican-Peruvian restaurant, 2551 Hemphill Drive, serves good Mexican food, but the Peruvian menu is the real draw. The Ceviche de Mixto hits the spot on a hot day, or you can try the same variety of seafood fried in a crunchy batter in a dish called Jalea.

Misal Bistro, 580 Ed Noble Parkway, has been serving a variety of Indian kebabs and curry dishes for three decades. The restaurant also offers a buffet for those new to Indian cuisine.

On sunny days, there's no place better to sip a frozen highball than The Mont, 1300 Classen Blvd., which also offers a wide-reaching menu in an unmatched courtyard setting. The Mont is also a favorite spot to spend Friday nights before the big game.

Legend's Restaurant, 1313 W Lindsey, has been the benchmark for fine dining in Norman for almost four decades. Just beyond the city limits north, you'll find Royal Bavaria, which offers a unique biergarten dining experience. For early arrivers, The Diner, 213 E Main, specializes in breakfast and lunch. Van's Pig Stand, 320 N Porter Ave., and The Service Station, 502 S Webster Ave., are longtime favorites.
