As one of numerous unassuming restaurants located near Oklahoma City’s Super Cao Nguyen Market, one might easily pass over Lido for something flashier nearby – but that would be a mistake. Boasting more than 100 dishes from Chinese, French and Vietnamese cuisine, Lido has been a staple of OKC’s Asian District for decades. The restaurant is a go-to for Uptown residents and students from nearby Oklahoma City University and fills up quickly during the lunch hour and on weekends.
Lido has earned a well-deserved reputation for its hot and sour soup – easily the best in OKC – and for such fare as the combination vermicelli bowl, which includes heaping portions of pork, beef, chicken, shrimp and fried spring rolls on a bed of noodles and veggies. The specials in particular are reasonably priced and generous. 2518 N. Military Ave., Oklahoma City. www.lidorestaurantokc.com
