Sweet Basil 2.0

Sweet Basil  has always been a personal favorite of mine. I have many memories of birthday parties, special occasions, and family dinners that took place at this cozy Italian eatery on north Woodlawn. After suffering a major fire in early 2014, we had to wait over a year for Sweet Basil to make its comeback. This popular… More Sweet Basil 2.0

Margarita’s Cantina

Even after several years of blogging about restaurants, it seems that Margarita’s Cantina slipped through the cracks. This Tex Mex restaurant has been a longtime social destination, known for its libations, live music, and enchiladas. Located at Douglas and Hillside, the large and brightly painted building is easy to spot from the street. The inside has the look… More Margarita’s Cantina

Twizted Confections

For several years I have lived in close proximity to Twizted Confections and never happened to stop by. I had sampled their cakes and cookies a number of times, but was missing out on much more. Twizted Confections is located at Woodlawn and Central, near Il Primo Cafe, and is the place for anyone with a sweet tooth as… More Twizted Confections

Churn and Burn

Sadly, there are a shortage of places to enjoy the deliciousness of homemade ice cream in Wichita. Most options in town are chain places or ones that just sell industrially made ice cream. Most of this frozen dessert is fine, but if I am going to spend money on it, I want some of the good… More Churn and Burn

Mead’s Corner

Steph and I recently started drinking coffee on a somewhat regular basis, so we figured it would be good to review a coffeehouse. There is an ever growing list of places to get a good cup of coffee in Wichita, but since we were looking for some lunch as well we went with Mead’s Corner,… More Mead’s Corner

Meddys

Opening a new Mediterranean/Lebanese restaurant is a brave endeavour in a town that is supersaturated with hummus and shawarma. The folks here know how they like their falafel and fattoush so you better be able to do it right and maybe offer a new twist. And that is exactly what the recently opened Meddys has done at… More Meddys

Lou’s Charcuteria

They had me a Charcuterie. I admit I have an affinity for salted and cured meats, or as the French call it, charcuterie. Proper charcuterie is an art  form that dates back to the very beginnings of civilization. Unfortunately due to FDA/USDA regulations it is tough to find much in the way of traditional dry cured… More Lou’s Charcuteria

Dempsey’s Burger Pub

Dempsey’s Burger Pub is Wichita’s newest addition to the upscale hamburger restaurant category. For those familiar with Lawrence, Dempsey’s is an offshoot of the popular restaurant of the same name there. The Wichita location is part of the compact Clifton Square shopping center, which means parking can be tricky during peak hours. Like most of the… More Dempsey’s Burger Pub
