Zarate’s Latin Grill is another hidden gem in the OKC Metro. Owned by Jorge Zarate, Zarate’s Grill is well known for it’s Peruvian Food and Live Music.
Jorge is a strong presence at the restaurant. When he’s in the kitchen, you’re in for a special treat. Ask for the Linguini Lotima Saltado, an amazing twist on the Peruvian Classic.
One of my favorite things about this place is the flan. It is one of the few places in OKC in which I have experienced a true, classic made flan. Every so often they change up the flavors so be sure to ask what type of flan is on the menu tonight.
Another fantastic thing is that they have all the Latin colas, like Jarrito and Inca Cola. Jarrito comes in many flavors: strawberry, mango and lemon to name a few. Inca Cola tastes like a bubble gum cream soda. They also have a full service bar with outstanding margaritas and mixed drinks.
Every time I go there, it’s always top notched. I have tried almost everything on the menu. My favorites are the Jamaican Jerk Chicken and the banana leaf tamales. Whatever you choose, it’ll be fantastic! I can almost guarantee it.
