Lone Wolf Banh Mi
has already made a name for itself as one of the best food trucks in town. Everything they put out is delicious and it seems like every single time I go over to Guthrie Green on a Wednesday they are always the truck with the longest line. Brunch is a sacred Sunday activity in Tulsa, for people of all walks of life. It is the one day of the week when everyone unwinds and indulges in some of the goodness that our culture has to offer. For those of you who haven’t heard, there is a new contender for the best brunch in town. The wolf is howling in the sunlight in the back patio of The Fur Shop, and I have to say… Hallelujah!

In 2012, Philip and Danielle Phillips opened the Lone Wolf food truck. It quickly made a name for itself as the go-to spot for food that cannot be found anywhere else in town. Offering brunch grants the truck the opportunity to showcase other foods outside of the routine banh mi and kimchi fries. The amount of prep work for the new brunch option says it all—10 hours. Everything they put out is made from scratch or local. One thing to note about the Sunday menu is that it takes a longer cook time, thus granting diners to take advantage of the bloody mary bar! You can sit out in the amazing patio or find a seat inside, either way a food runner will bring you your food.  If you are looking for a unique brunch experience, this is definitely it.

The first thing I tried was the Beignets (4 for $4.95), something you may recognize as a menu item that had a brief time to shine the year of the truck’s inception. They were moved off the menu to make way for the kimchi fries that have become a lunchtime staple during the week. Philip was inspired by the world famous beignets from Cafe Du Monde in New Orleans.

Next up was the French Toast Brioche ($5.50). The french toast is made with a delicious ginger and peach bourbon syrup, miso butter and mint crème fraiche. For an additional $3 you can add fruit. This satisfied my craving for sugar and was a nice change from others I’ve tried with boring flavors.

The third item I sampled was the Kimchi Melt ($8.50). Made with toasted brioche, caramelized onions and kimchi, havarti, and lone island sauce. The lone island sauce is a play off of the thousand island dressing, mixing their famous Thai chili aioli with pureed house made pickles. Customers have the option of choosing the ¼ beef patty or a chickpea fritter for protein. I tried the beef and I can’t wait to come back and try the veggie option on another day.

The last dish was my favorite. The French Omelet with sweet potato and beet home fries ($8.50) was insanely delicious. The omelet varies weekly, but the one I tasted was made with roasted tomato, havarti, basil, scallions, and basil aioli. This was the best omelet I have ever had in Tulsa. The eggs were cooked to buttery perfection, with a custard like consistency. Amazing! The sweet potato and beet home fries were a nice change from the traditional home fries. They were packed with the perfect amount of flavor to compliment the omelet. This is something I will come back again and again for, I am excited to see what other variations they will create!
