Lunch Oklahoma

Brunch at FLINT OKC

My husband and I both enjoy a good meal so when I don’t cook we are always looking for new places to try.  While on vacation in Oklahoma City we decided to tour the downtown area and see what had changed in the last 10 years I’d been away from home. We happened upon  Flint which is nestled right in the heart of downtown OKC.  I polled a few friends and they gave it raving reviews.  I doesn’t take much to sway us so we decided to have brunch.  The atmosphere in Flint was upscale with a splash of down to earth.  Each table has orange velvet seats and the walls are covered in wood paneling.  My first thought was orange velvet??  I guess in hindsight the décor gives the illusion of a kindled fire which is more of a homey feel.

The Appetizer – Chicken Truffle Bites 

Chicken Truffle Bites with Thai chili and Thai Peanut Sauce
These chicken truffle bites will blow your mind.  These bites are made from pieces of dark chicken meat breaded in truffle bread crumbs then fried.  They are then paired with a sweet Thai chili sauce and a Thai peanut sauce.  Compliments to whoever made the peanut Thai sauce because that sauce is off the chain.  Only downside to this dish was that there was only three pieces of chicken.  This really needs to be a 20 piece meal like they serve at McDonalds.



This is it, i actually did it. I’ve gone from a food picture taking fanatic to blogger. It wasn’t the easiest decision I’ve ever made after all this is uncharted territory for me. The concept sounded dope in my mind but getting it out for the world to see well that was its own struggle. I questioned if this was truly what I wanted to do I mean I even struggled with the name for my blog. After a four day stent with the thesaurus, numerous calls to my mother-in-law, and brain storming with my husband I came up with MettleFork. Mettle is a play on the word Metal but it is actually a word that describes me – bold, brave, adventurous, tenacious… the list goes on and on. Mettle also describes the type of food I want to eat whether in a restaurant or my kitchen. So here I am officially a blogger ready to take on this adventure fork first. There is a saying that says life begins at the end of your comfort zone but I believe it begins at the end of my fork. Food is life both figuratively and literally and I’m stepping out of my comfort zone.
Forks Up!
