Delicious salsa from Iguana in OKC! I went out for lunch there today with my favorite former boss, Miranda!

I had a verde pork enchilada and roasted potatoes. And many, many chips with this salsa.


A photo montage from my eats tonight!

What I Ate: July 20, 2012


Today, B made me and D and BB dinner since we’ve had him and his roommates over so often. A (not A-dawg, he’s in Florida) was also in attendance.

On the menu? Fajitas of the beef and chicken variety, guac, and corn salsa!

The beef was barely cooked, like I like it, and the citrus marinade was great. The corn salsa was an AMAZING replica of Chipotle’s corn salsa. I could have eaten it for days. I’ll link to a recipe later.

We munched on taffy from a friend in California for dessert. And we’ll probably make a run for more foods later, since that’s what we do on Fridays.

Pictures to come when I’m not mobile blogging!


Photo of the Day: BB made these for me and D the other night! Stuffed bell peppers with rice, tomatoes, ground beef, and cheese. Yummy yummy!

What I Ate: Big Truck Tacos


Today, B and I hit up the Oklahoma City Zoo and swung by Big Truck Tacos on the way home. I wouldn’t say it was in an excellent part of town, but exiting suburbia is totally worth this amazing food, I promise.

EDIT: Look at young lil’ me, making broad statements about a neighborhood because I saw one boarded up building! For the record, I was totally wrong on my description of Uptown 23rd in this review, and I apologize for everyone I offended. It’s pretty clear from the amount of time I now spend in this awesome district of OKC that I was (like I said) totally wrong. Love and kisses, BTT/Uptown. You are an excellent part of town.

B had a torta (no picture, he eats really fast)

and I had two tacos…

…the Wojo, which has veggies and beans with a splash of lime (my addition) and the Crispy ‘cado, which has two huge pieces of fried avocado, salsa, pico, and crumbly queso blanco (my favorite thing ever OMG, second only to feta, I’m a crumbly cheese addict). I also ordered chips and queso.

The tacos were super flavorful and weren’t overly spicy on their own. My mouth was stinging often, but I’m a huge baby, and pico even makes me yearn for a cold glass of milk. The “Asphault” salsa, which was a bright bottle of orange, fruity, spicy goodness, was probably my favorite part of the whole experience. I applied it liberally to all of my foods and even on each individual chip.

B thought there were too many flavors colliding in the food, however; he prefers more traditional Mexican dishes. He likes tortas from this sketch Latino bodega (it’s legit called Bodega Latina) in the RVA. But even he said that he would gladly make the trek back to BTT.

The truck came to Norman once, but with a much smaller menu, which was understandable. I preferred the offerings at the brick-and-mortar eatery. 

BTT had extremely reasonable prices, in my humble, broke-college-student opinion. My chips and queso, tacos, and drink cost about $10. I’m a medium to large sized girl, and I was so full I practically rolled myself to the car on my $10 meal. You can even bring back your cup for a drink discount later!

Final verdict? Go to Big Truck Tacos. Get the Asphault salsa. Thank me later.
