What We're Eating
Tacos and pizza.
Big Truck Tacos
Big Truck Tacos is not just a clever name; the eatery offers its one-of-a-kind tacos from the window of a food truck as well as from a converted drive-in located along 23rd Street in Oklahoma City. The tacos, burritos and other menu items are packed with fresh, flavorful ingredients that create powerful flavors. The Okie Baha taco is a lighter take on California fish tacos: marinated tilapia is grilled and served on a tortilla topped with jicama-cabbage slaw and a garnish of green onion. The crunchy bite of the slaw combined with the flakiness of the fish and the sturdy tortilla creates a textural punch and a pleasant appeal. 530 NW 23rd St., Oklahoma City. www.bigtrucktacos.com
It’s the most important meal of the day, yet some of us still neglect to eat a good breakfast. Thank goodness for restaurants like the Wild Fork, open six days a week at 7 a.m., that help us in our quest to start the day off right. The two-egg breakfast, biscuits and gravy, omelets – the staples are all offered. But Wild Fork offers twists on breakfast, including with a breakfast pizza. Homemade wheat crust is topped with scrambled eggs and cheese, then a variety of toppings, from garden vegetables and herbs to bacon, spinach and tomato, is added, creating a nutritious and filling breakfast. What a way to start the day. 1820 Utica Square, Tulsa. www.wildfork.com
