Signature Grill

I absolutely love going to Signature Grill in Edmond for a fine dining experience.

The upscale New American cuisine and wine selection never disappoints, and the modern candlelit setting creates a perfect ambiance for a date night or special occasion.

One of the highlights of the restaurant is their open kitchen, allowing us to see the chefs in action.

You can check out their website here.

My favorite thing to order as a starter is the calamari, which is always perfectly cooked and presented.

For entrees, my go-to choices are either the sea bass or the duck, both of which are prepared to perfection.

On one visit, they even offered us a complimentary chocolate cake as a dessert, making the experience even more memorable.

The wait times can sometimes be a bit long, especially when the restaurant is full, but the exceptional quality of the food makes it worth the wait.

Cafe Icon Sushi & Grill

I've had the pleasure of dining at Cafe Icon Sushi & Grill multiple times, and it never disappoints.

The contemporary shopping-center location offers a wide variety of sushi and Japanese entrees, along with grilled steaks and seafood.

But what sets this restaurant apart is its exceptional service and attention to detail.

The menu boasts an impressive variety of options, ensuring there's something for every palate.

My partner, a sushi lover, was also happy with the selection and impressed with my newfound satisfaction for sushi.

In addition to the delicious food, the presentation is impeccable.

Little Knights

I have to admit, I am a huge fan of Mexican food, and luckily I discovered Little Knights, a small yet delightful restaurant in our neighborhood.

I can confidently say that their guacamole is one of the best I've ever tasted.

I often find myself craving it and nothing else can quite compare.

Aside from their delicious guac, Little Knights offers a great variety of Mexican dishes.

My personal favorites are the street tacos and enchiladas, which my partner and I enjoy sharing during our regular visits.

I've also tried their chimichanga, and as expected, it was a mouth-watering experience.

I truly believe it's the best in town!

Zambrano's Peruvian Cuisine

One of my favorite places to dine in the city is Zambrano's Peruvian Cuisine.

I've been going there for quite some time now and it never disappoints.

Every time I visit, I make sure to try something new on the menu, but the one dish I can't resist ordering again and again is their Pan con Chicharron.

It's absolutely delicious, loaded with meat, and quite filling.

On top of that, the authenticity of the food always amazes me—it genuinely feels like everything is made from scratch.

Although I love the food, I must admit the Tres Leches cake and coffee could use some improvement.

The cake has a strange flavor, and the coffee essence thing they have going on doesn't quite do it for me.

However, the passion fruit cake never disappoints and is a must-try dessert!

The Fried Taco

I always make it a point to visit The Fried Taco whenever I crave delicious tacos and a refreshing glass of mango sweet tea.

The simple menu offers complex and satisfying dishes, and I've never been disappointed with any of my choices.

The meats are always moist and tender with great seasoning, while the taco shells and empanada crust maintain a crispy texture without making a mess.

One of my favorite things about this place is the variety of special beers and the amazing lemonades and teas.

They truly complement the flavors of the food and create a relaxing atmosphere to hang out with friends or family.

Another unique aspect of The Fried Taco is its family-friendly environment.

My daughter loves the dinosaur quesadilla holder, and the outdoor patio seating makes it a perfect spot to dine on a sunny day.

Tamashii Ramen - Ya

I must confess, I am absolutely in love with Tamashii Ramen - Ya and it's become a regular go-to spot for me in town.

The first time I visited, I was blown away by the authentic Japanese food and the great atmosphere.

The food at Tamashii Ramen - Ya is simply amazing.

I tried the garlic fried rice with pork and it was so good that I felt like I could eat it every day.

There's even a secret special sauce that only he knows the recipe for, which he comes in every day to make and have ready for the cooks.

The amount of food you get for your money is impressive, and they even offer delivery through Doordash.

One of my favorite dishes is the garlic fried rice, which comes out on a cast iron skillet and has this crunchy sear on the bottom that tastes like heaven.

You can order it as an appetizer or add chicken and make it a main course.

When you visit, you'll order at the counter and then be taken to your seat, with food being brought out promptly.

Don't forget to try the edamame with seasoning as an appetizer – it's a nice change from the salted edamame.

The ramen options at Tamashii Ramen - Ya are also fantastic, with great flavor and loaded with veggies and noodles.

It was perfectly cooked and a great way to start the meal.

This dish truly lived up to the hype and I can't wait to try more from their menu.

Another highlight of the evening was their steaming hot, soft bread – a perfect accompaniment to my meal.

To top it all off, I couldn't resist ordering a pizza to take home, and it was equally as amazing as everything else I had tried.

I truly hope Mio Italian Kitchen continues to maintain its high-quality food and service because I can't wait to come back and bring more friends and family to enjoy this Edmond gem.

Fait Maison Restaurant

I recently had the pleasure of dining at Fait Maison Restaurant with my partner for my birthday, and it was an unforgettable experience.

The romantic atmosphere of the restaurant was perfect for our special night.

We decided to try the tasting menu, and each dish was presented beautifully with exquisite flavors.

The pacing of each course was just right, and although we had to skip the cheese portion, we were more than satisfied with the meal.

As we aren't usually big wine drinkers, the wine tasting was a nice touch, with some selections being more enjoyable than others.

We are eager to return to Fait Maison and try some of their other intriguing dishes, including the "hunting menu" that piqued our interest.

I remember the first time I visited, I didn't have a reservation, but luckily, my group and I were seated immediately on their lovely outdoor patio.

We ordered the pork chop and the Mahi-mahi, which were both quite generous in portion size.

The pork chop was hands down the best I've ever had.

The service was impeccable, too.

Hidalgo's Mexican Restaurant & Cantina

Let me tell you about one of my favorite places to eat in town - Hidalgo's Mexican Restaurant & Cantina.

They are situated in a colorful strip-mall offering not just familiar Mexican meals but also vegan options, outdoor seating, and TVs.

I appreciate how quickly they prepare dinner and ensure every dish is correct.

One of the things that makes Hidalgo's stand out is their complimentary queso served with chips and salsa when you sit down.

I particularly enjoy their steak fajitas, Mexican mashed potatoes, and grilled vegetables.

The freshness and flavor of their food is truly unmatched.

I've also tried their Tecate with lime, and it's the best I've ever had.

Another great thing about Hidalgo's is their new menu items and cocktail offerings.

I recently tried their bacon-wrapped shrimp, and it was absolutely amazing.

Their tortillas are homemade, and the service is always prompt and courteous.

Just the other day, I decided to give Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant at Danforth Square a try.

As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

I enjoyed their freshly made chips that seemed to have just come out of the oil.

I also found the cheese sauce and salsa fantastic.

For my entree, I decided on the beef fajitas, and I must say, they were seasoned well and not chewy at all.

As a frequent visitor to Big O's Pork & Dreams, I have to say that my experiences were nothing but amazing.

I remember the first time I tried their loaded baked potatoes with chicken and brisket – it was absolutely delicious, and the portions were perfect for the whole family.

On a different visit, I had the pleasure of trying their ribs, brisket, okra, baked beans, and Polish sausage as takeout.

The flavors were great, and the ribs were fall-off-the-bone tender with a delicious smoky taste.

Cafe De Taipei

As someone who loves a good late-night snack, Cafe De Taipei has become my go-to spot for satisfying my sushi and boba cravings.

Their friendly and personable customer service always makes me feel welcome, and they're more than happy to accommodate my requests, such as adjusting the sweetness levels of their drinks.

Don't miss out on their amazing firecracker roll and red alert roll with salmon, it's truly scrumptious!

The spicy salmon pokébowl is also a must-try.

Check out their website here for more details.

My all-time favorite drink from Cafe De Taipei is the honeydew melon jasmine milk tea with mixed fruit jellies.

The boba is just the right texture and adds an enjoyable chewiness to the drink.

If you're in the mood for some sushi, you can't go wrong with their fresh and high-quality ingredients.

I recently tried the Wu-Tang roll, and it was not only visually stunning, but the taste and texture combinations were incredible.

Cafe De Taipei is more than just a place to grab a quick bite; it's a cozy spot where I enjoy hanging out with friends or even by myself.

Neighborhood JAM Edmond

One of my favorite spots for breakfast in town is Neighborhood JAM Edmond.

They even provide outside heaters for those cooler days, which is a thoughtful touch.

The menu has a great variety, and though I find some dishes a tad bit spicy for my taste, the average person wouldn't have an issue with it.

Some of the dishes I've tried include the avocado toast, which was excellent.

The pineapple bourbon cakes were just out of this world!

Another dish worth mentioning is the gluten-free cinnamon roll cakes.

They are phenomenal!

Small but just so incredibly good.

The heap is also delicious, but if you like your scrambled eggs thoroughly cooked, make sure you mention that or order your eggs another way.

Thai La Moon

Just the other day, I was craving some Thai food and decided to look up the nearest restaurant.

That's when I stumbled upon Thai La Moon.

I thought I'd give it a try, so I ordered a bunch of dishes to share with my family.

The man at the counter was incredibly friendly and helpful when I asked for his opinion on what to order.

He answered all my questions and offered fantastic suggestions.

We ended up ordering the Noodle Soup with Chicken, Sweet & Sour Chicken Stir Fry, California Sushi Rolls, Sticky Rice with Mango, Unsweet Iced Tea, and Thai Iced Tea.

Honestly, every dish was a 10/10.

The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the restaurant itself was a cute little establishment with a cozy ambiance.

Not only did I have a delightful experience at Thai La Moon, but I also discovered my new favorite Miso Soup, and their pick two sushi special became my go-to lunch deal.

The seasoning is always on point, and the food is consistently hot and fresh.

During one visit, I decided to get a to-go order of their veggie spring rolls.

Not only was the price reasonable, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it came with a small cabbage salad and a delightful assortment of sauces.

Jerusalem Mediterranean Cuisine

Just the other day, I decided to pop into Jerusalem Mediterranean Cuisine for lunch.

It's located in a shopping mall, and the modest cafe surroundings provide a cozy atmosphere.

As I walked in, I noticed that it was moderately busy, with a good mix of people enjoying their meals.

I had heard great things about their chicken and vegetable kabobs, so I decided to try the Chicken Tawook.

I was not disappointed!

The flavors were absolutely incredible and the chicken was cooked to perfection.

I couldn't resist ordering some takeout as well, and I can honestly say the food quality has always been top-notch.

What truly stood out for me, however, was their Gyro combo with Turkish coffee and a piece of baklava.

The gyro was packed with flavor, and the Turkish coffee was strong and rich.

The baklava was a perfect ending to my meal – sweet, flaky, and delicious.

If I could, I'd be coming here every day – the food is that good, and the prices are very reasonable.

Bulgogi Korean Bistro

The other day, I stumbled upon Bulgogi Korean Bistro on Google Maps, and you can check it out here.

I have been searching for an authentic Korean spot in Oklahoma, and I'm glad to say that this is the one!

The food is absolutely delicious, and I couldn't ask for a better taste of Korea in my neighborhood.

I always end up ordering way too much because the portion sizes are huge!

I can easily make almost three meals out of my leftovers.

They also offer free side dishes, which I appreciate.

Recently, they reopened after a kitchen fire, and I was beyond excited to have my favorite Korean place back in business.

I went there right away and ordered my favorite dish - the Black Bean Paste Noodle.

It had a light, savory taste with wonderful hints of pork, potato, and I think even beets.

It was just as delicious as I remembered it!

My other go-to dish is Bulgogi, which is always served with rice.

Boulevard Steakhouse

I recently went to Boulevard Steakhouse for a weekend dinner with my spouse and we had an amazing time.

The ambiance was perfect for a casual yet classy dining experience.

We started our evening with refreshing cocktails and their delightful chopped house salad.

Then, I ordered the filet, cooked to perfection and smothered with a delicious peppercorn garlic sauce.

My spouse opted for the 16oz ribeye steak which was cooked medium rare, just as they like it.

For sides, we shared the family-style potato au gratin which was definitely a hit.

Dessert was a real treat - we couldn't decide between the cheesecake and the french toast bread pudding, so we ordered both.

It turned out to be a fantastic decision, as both desserts were mouthwatering and satisfying.

Throughout the night, the service was simply impeccable, making our dining experience even more enjoyable.
