Faye’s Casual Café: Comfort Food Leading to the Sublime

By on August 31, 2011

Faye’s Casual Café is sadly closed 🙁

Ok, I’ll admit it… I tend to light up like Tony Stark’s reactor at the mere mention of comfort food. My last interaction with a choice corned beef sandwich required surgery to remove the grin from my face.

But, that doesn’t mean I can’t remain objective on the subject. In fact, it takes just the right kind of comfort food to command my taste buds attention and win my allegiance.

It has to be good.

So, you can imagine my joy at sauntering into Faye’s Casual Café last week to partake in what I now consider a new genre of comfort cuisine: Comfort leading to the sublime.

Ok, you may think I’m overstating it, but the fact is,everything I had was absolutely fantastic with subtleties you wouldn’t expect in this kind of cooking.

Owners, Carla and Jeremy Delgado, have outdone themselves with their re-invention of classic Okie-selections that will have you smacking your gums from the get-go.

Specialties range from chicken fried steak and hamburgers to chicken pot pie and spaghetti.

My friend and I had the chicken fried steak and chicken pot pie.

Both were amazing.

The chicken fried steak was seasoned perfectly. I envisioned somebody’s grandma in back laboring over my meal like an artisan over a work of art. The meat was tender and the breading was perfectly thick and crunchy. It was also covered with the most delicious pan gravy that I’ve ever had. I don’t say this lightly, but it’s probably the BEST chicken fried steak in Tulsa.

Once my buddy and I got to the chicken pot pie I was in an alternate reality. I’m used to chicken pot pie being so thick and filling it could double for spackling compound. But, this was rich and creamy, yet light in a way you wouldn’t expect. The crust on the bottom and on top ensured that we had the best part of the pot pie, throughout. Pure Bliss.

Let me just say…if you’re in the mood for comfort food at its best, Faye’s Casual Café is the place to try.It hasn’t been around long, but judging by the incredible food we had there, I’m expecting it to be the new Okie cuisine darling of Tulsa.

Faye’s serves breakfast and lunch (kitchen closes at 3pm) and dessert and coffee all day long till 7pm. Call before 3pm for to-go orders and they can have it ready for you when you arrive.
