Twist your way to Opulicious Restaurant on Coolidge Street for an unforgettable dining experience. With unbelievable local favorites gracing the menu and balloon creations putting smiles on the faces of patrons, Opulicious holds the recipe to success.

“We have a variety of customers,” says owner and chef Kelli Kay Chun, noting that Opulicious is the first balloon-themed restaurant in the nation. “I’m a balloon artist as well, so a lot of kids really enjoy the balloon animals I make for them.”

In addition, many flock to the eatery to savor homemade local grinds from recipes derived from Chun and her mother. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, meals are always made fresh to order.

“We want customers to try our KC Waffle Dog ($3.50),” Chun says. “It’s a blast to the past. Waffle dogs were really popular during the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.”

KC Waffle Dog features a hot dog nestled inside a special waffle batter, which Chun explains is made from a secret recipe. The dish is served a la carte and is accompanied by a tasty relish for dipping. Add cheese to your KC Waffle Dog for an additional 50 cents.

“Right now we’re also featuring our Teriyaki Pork ($5.95). It’s delicious. The thin slices of pork are marinated in a homemade teriyaki sauce. It’s our May special,” Chun states.

Teriyaki Pork is served with two scoops of rice (white or brown) and your choice of mac or tossed salad.

Opulicious also offers catering services and takeout options for hungry diners on the go.
