Phat Philly’s has been serving up delicious Cheesesteaks since 2005
We finally tried Phat Phillys in Tulsa. They make delicious Cheesesteaks made to order. They have 7inch and 11inch sandwiches and in addition to Original Cheesesteak they offer a Chicken Philly, Veggie Philly, Breakfast Philly and a variety of add ons. They also have waffle fries, tots and chips. If you’re not into Phillys they have Chicken Tenders and Buffalo Wings. For our visit I had an original 7” with waffle fries. My wife had a 7” chicken Philly with tots. We were both pleased and will go back. If you are real hungry you can attempt their challenge to see how many 7” originals you can eat in one setting. (I think the record was 12!)
Unique Dining Experience at Lowood in Downtown Tulsa
My wife and I tried out the restaurant Lowood in Downtown Tulsa for a date night last week. It’s a New American restaurant that serves food prepared with fresh local ingredients from right here in northeastern Oklahoma. They have pasta and wood fire dishes available. We sat In the Chefs Counter area of the restaurant. It was so fun, it provided views of the full kitchen. We loved watching as they prepared meals in front of us. I had the Fire Roasted Duck Breast & Celery it came with frisee, crispy garlic, basil, mustard vinaigrette. I loved it! It was so flavorful. my wife had the Reginette & Arugula Pesto it came with applewood smoked bacon, farm egg yolk, parmigiano reggiano. It was good but did have quite a bit of a tangy flavor. We also enjoyed some wine. They have an excellent wine selection. We ended up doing the Triple Chocolate Fudge Brownie with Cookies and Cream Ice Cream. It was a vegan dessert and I was surprised how much I liked it.
