Food scene
If you’re the sort that likes to check out the hip and happening, you’ll find it in the Plaza District; an enclave of locally-owned shops, neighborhood bars, quirky galleries and great restaurants. Named for the historic Plaza Theater (built in 1935), the area has become a hub for creativity and a magnet for local businesses.

My favorite restaurants in Oklahoma City right now. What ever you order will be amazing. The tankatsu sandu and hot chicken are out of control.

There’s always a line but it’s always worth it. Probably the most beloved breakfast spot in OKC. Guatemalan breakfast and craft lattes that I promise you won’t regret. My go to’s are the Migas or the Montuleno. If those weren’t so incredible I would have tried other things on the menu to recommend.

It’s strange that there is such an amazing Vietnamese restaurant scene in the heart of OKC but pho is part of my weekly rotation and this spot is a great introduction. It’s a hole in the wall bare bones spot run by the cutest couple. Order the pho with thinly sliced beef and splash some Siracha and hoisin sauce to give you a sweet and spicy broth that will have you sweating in gratitude. Also probably the best hangover food you haven’t tried.

Simply enough it’s one of Oklahoma’s oldest and famous steak houses. Absolutely full of charm. Unapologetically authentic and the steak is amazing and reasonably priced. Also order the “lamb fries” which are actually.. uhh... I’ll let you find out 😉

Neighborhoods
Tons of art galleries and local shops to pick up something to remember OKC. Be sure to check out the Paseo Grill, Picasso Café, the Oso, Scratch and Sauced, just to name a few. GUN is restaurant I can not recommend enough. This yakitori spot is my favorite restaurant in OKC.
