Gogo Sushi Express and Grill
432 N.W. 10th
A sushi spot in Midtown? OK! Based on the success of its first location in Moore, GoGo Sushi opened another store and is faring quite well. All the usual suspects are on the menu, from bento boxes to sashimi and nigiri. Get your order to-go or stay in and eat. The iced water has strawberries and other fruit in it for a nice, refreshing treat.
Just up and rolling … literally! The truck serves up hot dogs, brats or smoked sausage with all the fixings. Steveo’s most popular links, Italian and pepperoni sausages, are served with marinara, mozzarella, onions and peppers. There’s even an andouille dog for the Cajun at heart. Most days, Steveo’s food truck can be found at S.E. 149th Street and S. Sooner Road.
Taste of Soul Egg Roll
Like its page on Facebook to know where the truck will be every day. It
moves around quite a bit, but offers the same great menu in all
locations. For breakfast, try the roll with sausage or bacon. The
original has seasoned ground turkey and shredded cabbage, or go veggie
with cabbage, carrots, onions and bell peppers. It’s a simple menu
that’s full of flavor!
