We stepped out of the cold winter weather and into a miniature island paradise for lunch at Sisserou’s yesterday. Sisserou’s serves food inspired by the Caribbean island of Dominica, which specializes in colorful cuisine. Sisserou’s does a great job of adding pops of color without making the place look over the top. When you first walk into Sisserou’s, you’re greeted by a warm palette of tropical colors everywhere, from the playful lights to the island artwork. As my coworker mentioned, even the tables are embedded with pretty stripes of color.
We started with some sweet potato chips and fried plantains, both of which were fried to perfection with a touch of light seasoning.
The Curry Chicken lunch was also only lightly seasoned, with tender chicken and vegetables, making it a nice cold weather dish that wasn’t too spicy.
But the most tender chicken of all was the Baked Chicken lunch, which was seasoned with herbs and tender all the way through. Between the quality of chicken, the generous portion, and the delicious side Butternut Squash Soup, this was a great lunch choice.
My co-worker, who had tried different Cuban sandwiches, said that Sisserou’s did a fine job of making one, with well-seasoned tender meats. Their Cuban sandwich pork is marinated in Mojo sauce (garlic and citrus), topped with their house habanero mayonnaise, ham, Swiss cheese, sweet pickles, and Dijon mustard.
I opted for the soup & salad combo, with the Butternut Squash Soup and a side salad with bleu cheese dressing. The salad was very fresh and crisp, and the soup really hit the spot on this wintry day with its delightful creaminess and light herbal flavors.
If you want something a bit spicier at Sisserou’s, then try any of the jerk chicken dishes. The chicken is not as tender as it is in the previously mentioned dishes, but it does provide a Caribbean kick!
Sisserou’s is located in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District at the intersection of Archer and Main.
