Permanent parking, mobile food

A plan to create a permanent food truck park in Midtown passed the Downtown Design Review Committee (DDRC) on April 17. The creator, Hunter Wheat, based it on other permanent food parks around the country, including places like New York, the Dallas/Ft. Worth-area and Austin, Texas.

OKG7 eat: Fresh off the farm

There was a time not too terribly long ago in Oklahoma City when there was a chain on every corner and the closest you could get to local was to make a trip to your farmers market and make the food yourself. We always celebrate all things local, and luckily, it’s getting easier for OKC restaurants to incorporate locally grown, all- natural ingredients into what they offer.

OKG7 eat: Soccer pub crawl

Football season is finally here! We call it soccer, but that doesn’t have to stop you from indulging in two favorite European traditions: walking and pub crawling. Since the Energy FC games will be alcohol-free, we’ve created a list of pubs and taverns within walking distance from Clement E. Pribil Stadium at Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School.

OGK7 eat: Dollars to doughnuts

While the idea of fried dough may or may not be American in origin, the traditional ring-shaped confection that we know and love does originate here. According to The Smithsonian, doughnuts were created by an enterprising New England sailor’s mother who wanted a way to store and transport pastry. Regardless of its origin, the doughnut is a modern favorite.

Be the office champion with a dozen doughnuts topped with candy or bacon.

The Daily Donut
10911 N. Western Ave.

What works:
a great variety of donuts
What needs work:
more inside seating
If you are craving maple bacon donuts, get to the stop early on Mondays; they sell out fast. Also, the jalapeño cheese rolls are great.

Located on the corner of Western Avenue and Hefner Road, this shop carries the usual chocolate-glazed Long John (.69 each) and yeasty doughnut holes ($1.30 dozen), but it’s not just the traditional delectables that bring customers into the store.

In a world of Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, The Daily Donut has made its mark on Oklahoma City by offering specialty delights with which no chain store can compete.

The Daily’s owners take its inspiration from the famous Voodoo Doughnut shop in Portland, Ore., they said.

Ever tried an Oreo doughnut ($1.29)?

What about a red velvet doughnut ($1.29) with cream cheese frosting?

Each day, a specialty flavor is offered, but Mondays get all the attention.

You see, that’s when patrons can try its bacon doughnut ($1.59 each).

Yes, bacon. On a doughnut. A light, airy yeast doughnut topped with maple or chocolate glaze and generously sprinkled with the world’s most perfect food: bacon. (OK, maybe not the world’s most perfect food, but it might be mine.)

The maple glaze is crunchy, delicate, sweet and salty all rolled into one, and it is divine. It’s reminiscent of when your mom made pancakes and bacon for breakfast and you would dip your bacon in the maple syrup.

Ever tried an Oreo doughnut?
Speaking of sweet, The Daily also sells confectioneries topped with Oreo cookies, M&M candies and Fruity Pebbles cereal. Prefer a filled doughnut?

Friday’s special is Key Lime Pie ($1.59) — a yeast doughnut filled with a tangy, sweet custard. But if you’re like me and a good ol’ twist or blueberry cake doughnut are more your style, The Daily Donut has that, too.

The crumbly cake doughnuts (.75 each) come in original, blueberry and chocolate and are moist and flavorful.

Sausage rolls ($1.89) are also offered in cheese or jalapeño. (Go for the jalapeño. They aren’t overly spicy, and are a perfect combination with the sweet, flakey roll that surrounds the sausage.)

Fresh-brewed coffee and cappuccino also are available. A combo (a glazed or chocolate doughnut and a cup of coffee) costs $1.49.

The Daily Donut is open 5 a.m.- noon Monday-Friday and 5 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday-Sunday.
