• Maples Barbecue

    February 4, 2019DishinandDishes

      I have chased the Maples Barbecue truck down a few times. Sometimes it’s not been where I can get to it in time and often it was sold out.  Thank goodness they now have a brick and mortar located in the Plaza District. I’m not going into the whole Franklin Barbecue speel, as I’m…

  • Green & Grilled

    November 8, 2012DishinandDishes

    As life use to exist, healthy eateries in Oklahoma City were a rarity, an unheard of idea.  Sure, you might find one of those restaurants that served up home cooked vegetables, but usually, they were drenched in butter, smothered in cheese, or boiled to death with bacon or ham to make them taste good. If…

  • Seoul Garden Korean Restaurant

    March 11, 2011DishinandDishes

    I don’t know why all the Korean restaurants are in Midwest City. It sure does make it tough to feed a craving though when you want Dot-Sol-Bi-Bim-Bap . Which is what I find myself craving continually since my first visit to Seoul Garden Korean Restaurant. The first time we visited Seoul Garden, we couldn’t find it,…
