On the Road Eats: Oklahoma City

I have something to share with you.

I get up to Oklahoma City once or twice a year and it’s usually just for the day.  During this trip, I took a super early flight in, met with my client mid-morning and then had time to stop for lunch before catching my next flight home.  Thank you American Airlines for my upgrade!

The Mule
I have eaten at a few of the spots downtown and in Bricktown so I wanted to venture out somewhere new.  I wasn’t in the mood for a nicer dining experience so I searched for places that you must try when visiting OKC.  The Mule was on that list and I am lucky I got there early because the place was packed by 12pm.

My server told me the Macaroni Pony was their best seller, a sandwich made with Jalapeño Cornbread, Chipotle BBQ Pulled Pork, 3 Cheese Mac and Cheese and a Pickle.  I also chose a side of Watonga Cheese Curds, battered and Fried with a side of marinara and ranch.  Healthy?  No.  Delicious?  Oh YEAH!  I think I could eat that sandwich once a week and if I could have had a beer with it, it would have been even better!  Next time you are in town, stop by the Plaza District and grab a sandwich at The Mule!

Pie Junkie
imageSince I was in the Plaza District and had consumed such a filling lunch, I decided why not stop in for a piece of pie at the Pie Junkie so I can be absolutely stuffed for my quick flight back to Dallas.  I wanted something a bit sweet but unfortunately I did not take the advice from the lady in the shop.  I was deciding between three, the Bird Dog Buttermilk, the Raspberry Buttermilk and the Apple Crumble.  I chose the Bird Dog Buttermilk, a traditional buttermilk pie with Bird Dog blackberry whisk and a flaky crust.  She warned me it would be sweet and with my first bite I thought I was eating liquid sugar.  Had it not been way too sweet for me, I think I would have enjoyed it.  Next time I will take her advice and try the raspberry(the tart balances the sweet) or go with the safe bet, the Apple Crumble.
