Pink Elephant Cafe & Tres Cantina
Two restaurants have merged into one destination of deliciousness at Pink Elephant Cafe & Tres Cantina in Norman. Open for lunch and dinner, food from the menus of both restaurants is served at this location, which is full of eclectic decor. On the Pink Elephant menu, you'll find an array of tasty options prepared from organic ingredients and low-hormone meat. Sample the soup du jour or baked potato soup, as well as an assortment of salads and sandwiches. In the past, Pink Elephant's daily specials have ranged from shrimp salad to enchilada casserole.
The Tres Cantina menu will send you straight to South America via your taste buds. A combination of flavors from Latin America merge on this menu to offer a wide array of delicious cuisine. To get a little taste of everything, start with the tapas sampler platter, which includes smoked meats, cheeses, olives, fruits, vegetables and arepas. The green chile stew is also an excellent choice, blending together smoked sirloin, green chiles, corn and potatoes topped with queso and spices.
For your main entree, try the polenta cakes, a fusion of baked blue corn polenta and Monterey Jack served with your choice of the green chili stew, red chile chicken, pulled pork carne adovada or sauteed vegetables. No matter what you order, save room for the legendary tres leches cake, a traditional Mexican cake sweetened with three types of milk, vanilla and sugar.
