It’s not the combination you typically expect to see as a restaurant sign, but early indications are that the new OK Breakfast and Sushi Bar is a resounding success. We checked out Google and Yelp reviews one month after the restaurant opened for business, and with 30 reviews in place, the business is standing at a 5-star rating. Manager Chunyin Weng says they’ve enjoyed the enthusiasm for the restaurant business during their launch.
“It’s really been fun because we have customers come in at 8:30 in the morning and ask if they can really order sushi,” said Weng. “Their faces just light up when we tell them yes.”
Weng, who moved to Oklahoma from New York five years ago, says the initial idea was to open a sushi and hibachi grill. But as they started to plan their menu, breakfast was added just because it’s such a big part of the culture around Moore. So far, the response has been very positive.
“We’ve had families and big groups come in for meals throughout the day,” said Weng. “Mom will order the sushi, and dad will have the breakfast. They seem to really enjoy having the flexibility.”
The menu offers a wide variety of choices. It includes appetizers, sushi, sashimi, and ramen items, along with a full selection of hibachi grill items, including chicken, shrimp, steak, lobster, and salmon. Weng says breakfast lovers will find all their favorites here.
“We have all your traditional options like two-egg combos, omelets, pancakes, and French toast with the normal sides you see on any breakfast menu,” said Weng. “But we also have crab wonton for breakfast, which we think people will enjoy.”
The rest of the menu is enough to satisfy anyone looking for a great sushi experience. Diners have already become regulars and are well on their way to establishing two specific specialty rolls as favorites.
“The Fireman Roll is very popular,” said Weng. “It has tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, avocado, and jalapeno in eel sauce. People also love the Filet Mignon roll, which has spicy blue crab, avocado, topped with filet mignon, jalapenos, cilantro, and hot sauce.”
OK Breakfast and Sushi Bar is located on 4th Street, just around the corner from Norman Regional Moore and the Warren Theater. Weng says they chose the location to offer a convenient, new dining option for local residents.
“We’re excited about being here and for the way people have responded so far,” said Weng. “We can’t wait for more people to discover our menu!”
