Faturday Omaha At Malaras

December 6, 2022

Oh yes it’s pasta and motz stick time as TJ and I traverse the menu of Malara’s Italian Restaurant 2123 Pierce St in Omaha. I’ve eaten at Malara’s over the years as has TJ, but they haven’t been presented within the Faturday Omaha ethos until this episode. We canvassed the menu to present multiple plates to you and we are thankful for the kind service received at the restaurant. We will get into this neighborhood gem serving Omaha diners since 1984 and dig into dishes from Spaghetti and delicious sauce to TJ’s nostalgic take on a salad? 

Hang on to your fork and keep listening if you’re hungry.

Tucked away at 5060 S 107th St, Omaha, NE 68127 is Chaima’s African cuisine, and tucked within are very accessible and delicious flavors to delight the senses. It’s been a bit since I’ve walked through these doors though I have been to Chaima’s food truck that you may have seen around town. Since my last visit there have been wonderful updates to the interior of the restaurant, but the flavors are still delivered to the table from a knowledgable hand. Let’s talk chicken, let’s talk fufu, and let’s talk tasty so…

I love Thai food, do you love Thai food too? You might just love the Thai food at Pla Too Thai located at 5092 S 136th St. This was a spot that I had seen many times on Q st. but never made it there.

We talk Sweet Tea tenders, brie and berry pancakes with bone in perfectly cooked chicken and of course that ODB: old delicious brined sandwich.
