3 Tequilas
315 S. Broadway, Edmond
216-0500

Taking
over the spot of former El Parian, 3 Tequilas isn’t wasting any time on
heating up the casa with your favorite Mexi-dishes. Enjoy white cheese
dip to start, followed by its super fajita nachos. Want something
different? Try the fish tacos that are made with mahi mahi. End with the
traditional sopaipilla or house-made flan.

Wokstop OKC
9501 N. Macarthur

Let
yourself get swept up in the foodtruck trend and make a stop at WokStop
OKC for some gourmet Chinese on the fly. Use Facebook or Twitter
(@wokstopokc) to track its movement. Be sure to try the spicy chicken (a
5 on the 1-10 scale), the mobile wok’s best-seller. It also has
delicious options of orange chicken or beef, sesame chicken and
Mongolian beef. If you have a smaller appetite, try the crab roll,
hot-and-sour soup or a lettuce wrap.

La Luna Cantina & Grill
2812 Highway 62 Access Road, Newcastle
387-9475


The
newest restaurant in this happy chain recently popped up in Newcastle.
Customers have taken to its pollo verde (green chicken), which is full
of fajita chicken, poblano peppers, tomatoes, onions and cheese. Also
liked are the ocean tacos with grilled or fried fish. Finish with xango
(pronounced “chango”): deep-fried cheesecake dusted with cinnamon and
chocolate.

S & B’s Burger Joint
20 N.W. Ninth
843-8777

Not
your average burger shack, this hip haven opened its second location
right across from the Womb gallery and Iguana Mexican Grill, just north
of downtown. If you’re adventurous when it comes to eats, The Elvis
pairs peanut butter and bacon for a surprisingly delicious outcome. You
can attempt The Smokin’ Okie with grilled jalapeños, Cheddar, bacon,
mayonnaise and barbecue sauce. Don’t skip the fries or fried cheese
cubes.

180 Meridian Grill
2541 W. Main, Norman
310-6110

Cool
and sleek, it’s a place definitely worth thinking about. This sister
restaurant to Grand House on Classen Boulevard in Oklahoma City is
serving Asian fusion and having a blast doing it. The duck enchiladas
with a green curry-sour cream sauce are an attractive menu option.
Reducing meat consumption or cutting it out altogether? Most dishes come
with a tofu option and all are paired with sautéed vegetables.

Local
flavor runs free at Coolgreens. Order off the menu or build your own

the go? Any salad can be made into a wrap.

Pop
into Tao Cha and grab its most popular passion-fruit green tea, iced or

teas. All drinks are created with loose-leaf teas and herbs. The tea
house offers muffins or cake from La Baguette.
