OKG7 spots to eat between shopping


Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.

Jenn Scott November 21st, 2012

With the crush of holiday traffic, driving across town and back while shopping is out of the question. Depending on where in the metro you’re hitting the stores, why not stay put and eat, too?


Sweis Pita Bakery
2115 N. May
943-8923

May Avenue boasts a collection of fantastic shopping and delicious food. Among its gems is Sweis Bakery, serving all the things one might need for a traditional Mediterranean feast. There’s a lunch special that includes a fresh gyro, a gyro salad and house-made pita bread and chips. Make sure to try the baklava and assorted desserts.



Red Hot Mamma’s Pickles
7 N.E. 10th
redhotmammaspickles.com
272-0340

While you probably won’t stop in for an entire jar of pickles for lunch (or maybe you will), you can get a fantastic holiday gift basket featuring the place’s infamous Cajun-inspired pickles. For less heat, try the Prissy Missy, which is mostly sweet with soft heat. Throw in some Original Split-T Theta Sauce and a jar of pepper butter for those who can take it.




Musashi’s Japanese Steakhouse
4315 N. Western
musashis.com

602-5623

Western Avenue offers an array of shopping experiences, and hunger is bound to strike at some point. When it does, pull up a chair at the hibachi and enjoy the delicious fried rice and a sushi roll or two. Maybe even have some sake to calm the nerves. For the month of November, holiday gift cards are are 10 percent off. Get full and get stocking stuffers.



Urban Wine Works
1749 N.W. 16th
urbanww.com
525-9463

Of course you can get wine here, but now you can also get a delicious brunch or lunch. Situated conveniently in the Plaza District, the spot is ready to feed the shopping-weary. And there’s a patio, too! The new menu includes hazelnut French toast with a side of bacon, on the brunch side, and a blackened mahi mahi niçoise, on the lunch side.




Purple Burro
231 S. Coltrane, Edmond
purpleburro.com
359-8400

Inspired by New Mexico hatch chilis, these dishes are just what you need to power through a day of extreme shopping. The burrada — a house creation that includes a tortilla filled with chicken or brisket, rice and jalapeños — is flash-fried and smothered in verde or queso.

It’s served with a side of sour cream, lettuce, pico and guac. Wash it down with a $1.50 margarita.


Zarate’s Latin Mexican Grill
706 S. Broadway, Edmond
zarateslatingrill.com
330-6400

Zarate’s is the home of the Beerita, a 12-ounce margarita served with an upside-down Coronita for extra kick. Come hungry, because the traditional Latin menu is packed with choices, from Honduran banana-leaf tamales to the Mexican botana, served with fried jalapeños, avocado, grilled onions and Mexican potatoes. You’ll find soups, salads and vegetarian platters, as well.



Das Boot Camp
229 E. Main, Norman
das-bootcamp.com
701-3748

Lifting a mug of beer from the table to your mouth is the kind of rep you can expect from this boot camp. Carbs will be encouraged, in order to drink more of the hand-crafted Royal Bavarian beer. Try the Schnitzel sandwich, a hand-breaded pork loin with a lemon-caper aioli, or the Jager Roast, pork shoulder roast topped with mushroom-bacon gravy.
