“Feel-good food” encompasses a whole scrumptous spectrum of quality fare, mainly because the idea of comfort food means something different to everyone. To some it’s mom’s stew, to others it may be that one diner’s fried chicken, and to you it might be a warm brownie fresh out of the oven. Regardless of your definition, the food you choose to eat on rainy days, after a breakup or just because you can offers a comfort unlike anything else. We searched far and wide across Oklahoma to find the state’s best “feel-good food,” and we found it. Oh boy, did we.
Feeling a bit of the mid-day blues? Whether you’ve spent the morning fighting crowds while doing your holiday shopping or just need a bit of comfort to help you through the afternoon, these quick bites are sure to fix your mood.
