News 9 finds handsome “Ingrid’s Regular” to discuss restaurant’s closing…

For the second time in 11 months, Ingrid's Kitchen – the venerable German restaurant, bakery, and bar nestled at the corner of NW 36th and Youngs – is closing its doors, this time probably for good.

Just like when the eatery was shut down by the Oklahoma Tax Commission last September, news of the closure sizzled through social media like a hot schnitzel fresh out of the fryer, shaking all foodies, carb-lovers, and meat-sweaters who enjoyed the restaurant's delicious take on German foods and desserts.

Unfortunately, by the time we arrived, rising News 9 reporter Feliz Romero was already on the scene and on the story. I knew at that point a live vlog was out of the question, but I figured I'd hop out of my car, take a couple of quick pics for an article, and then head home to play with some brand new, over-priced Sonic the Hedgehog toys.

But before you could say "Stop it Dean or I'm going to call HR!," Felize was quickly approaching, asking the typical probing questions news reporters ask before they pop the big one –"Would you mind answering a couple of questions on camera?"
