August’s Best Bites

What we're eating this month

Avocado Toast

Speakeasy Coffee Bar, Bryant

This new industrial-chic coffeehouse in Bryant comes to you courtesy of the folks behind North Little Rock’s Mugs Cafe. And while the coffee is everything we’d expect—perfectly executed pour-overs, classic French presses, innovative dark-chocolate mochas with a pinch of cayenne—we’re most excited about the menu’s fresh and simple eats, such as this avocado, goat cheese and chive-topped toast.

Pupusa

Rosalinda Restaurant, Hondureño, North Little Rock

Stuffed with a mess of deliciousness (doubly true for the cheese-filled variety featured here) and griddled to flaky perfection, it’s easy to see why this tortilla dish is loved with a fiery passion across Central America. But thanks to the goodness served up by this North Little Rock staple—now located over in Levy—it’s easy to see that passion knows no borders. (900 W. 35th St.; (501) 771-5559)

Margarita pizza

Ristorante Capeo, North Little Rock

We couldn’t stop our mouths from watering when Argenta dinner staple Ristorante Capeo announced it was launching a new lunch menu, and that—wait for it—said menu was chock-full of Neapolitan-style pizza. And with curbside pickup and a quick three-minute cook time, thanks to that new super-heated, wood-fueled pizza oven, you can be in and out before your boss even notices you’re gone.
