Seven Good Things

These seven dishes or drinks have passed our taste buds and made us rave. They are ranked by level of yumminess.

DISCLAIMER: The information in this article was fact checked and accurate at press time, but 417 Magazine cannot guarantee its accuracy indefinitely.

1. The BLT ($7) at The Rebecca Grille (209 E. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-863-7000) is full of super-crispy bacon, thin tomato slices and a healthy shmear of mayo. The fries are tossed in a Parmesan cheese mixture that’s super-yummy.

2. We love the homemade bread at The Garden Tea Room (at Hometown Furniture, 201 Helena Ave., Rogersville, 417-753-4777). A little miniature loaf of the slightly sweet beer bread comes with your meal. It’s dense and moist and delightful.

3. The mi hoanh thanh soup ($7.49) at Rolls-N-Bowls (1402 W. Sunshine St., Springfield, 417-869-1488) is perfect for cooling autumn temperatures. A rich pork broth is full of egg noodles, slices of Vietnamese pork and big, fat wontons.

4. A new favorite lunch is the fish tacos ($6.95) from Haruno Sushi Bar & Grill (3044 S. Fremont Ave., Springfield, 417-887-0077). They’re served as wraps and are crunchy with a sauce that has a little zip.

5. Rocco’s Pizza (locations in Republic, Willard, Marionville) serves up some of our favorite local pizza. It’s the most similar to New York–style that we’ve found. One staffer says, “It has big, foldable slices I want to wrap around my body.”

6. The shrimp besitos ($8.49) at La Hacienda (1511 State Highway J, Ozark, 417-485-3252) features jack cheese and shrimp stuffed inside a jalapeño pepper and fried.

7. Salt-and-vinegar fries ($4.50) at Flame Steakhouse & Wine Bar (314 W. Walnut St., Springfield, 417-862-4444) are a zippy alternative to typical fried-potato side dishes. The pucker-causing seasoning is incredibly delicious on its own, but we like to alternate between dipping the fries in the homemade ketchup and garlic aioli that come on the side.
