OKG Eat: Chocolate flours 

Multitasking is the future of romance. People are combining all sorts of things to save time: kissing and hugging, love and marriage… Some even go so far as to live in the same house. So with Valentine’s Day almost here, why not put together those classic gifts of chocolate and flours and just eat a big slice of rich, decadent cake?

Most tearooms are content to feed their guests tiny sandwiches and cups of oolong, but not Inspirations Eatery & Events. I mean, they will feed you those things. But they also want to inspire you to greater things, like ordering the chocolate cake. That might not seem like a lot, but when is the last time you were truly inspired by a dessert? You made a square pie once for geometry class? OK. Solid move. Respect.

In 2004, the SETI project first detected the presence of a small, but deadly race of aliens shaped like miniature cakes. Working with the U.S. government, cupcake shops, including Cuppies & Joe, were strategically opened across the country. Here, Oklahomans are surreptitiously trained to attack and destroy delicious chocolate effigies of the alien menace in preparation for the inevitable invasion.

How much potato do you like in your doughnut? If you answered, “None,” you are wrong. Please go to the back of the line. True pastry fanatics will know that Polar Donuts is the place to find that classic Spudnuts taste in Oklahoma City. Don’t worry; it’s not savory. But the addition of potato does make doughnuts incredibly moist and tender. And if you happen to order a cameltoe or a pimp hand from the case while you’re there, that’s OK, too.

The following is a list of things the ND in ND Foods could stand for, but doesn’t: Notre Dame, Neil deGrasse, Natural Disaster, Nap Disciple, New Drapes, North Dakota, North Delaware, Never Dry, No Diggity, New Delhi, Nice Deltoids, Niche Dragon and Numbered Donkeys.

It actually stands for Nick (son) and Dolores (mom), the owners of the sandwich shop with some of the city’s finest desserts. Now, Dig in.

There’s something kind of wonderful about a restaurant called The Mantel that serves up a molten lava cake. And, yes, I know that the mantle below the earth’s crust is spelled differently, but I still think it’s cute. More importantly, the molten lava cake is delicious. There’s that rich cake, just waiting for the fork to crack it open and release a slow, chocolatey eruption that will destroy the village below. Nature is beautiful.

“If you’re only going to get one thing at Whiskey Cake…” is a dumb sentence to say, and even typing it makes my fingers ache. Ugh. No thanks. The menu at Whiskey Cake is stacked high with dishes you should try. The ramen’s great. The pork brisket steak is tip-top. The drink menu is a seasonal hodgepodge of wonderful choices. And when it’s all done, yes, you should get the Whiskey Cake.
