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

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

Krispy’s Fried Chicken and Seafood(It’s All About the Chicken and Waffles)

In theory the hamburger is simple, a disk of meat, a few condiments, some toppings, and a bread based cover are all that is necessary. Yet I am always surprised how restaurants find ways to screw up this pure Americana dish. The most egregious error is when restaurants opt for frozen pre-made patties and then proceed… More Bill’s Charcoal Grill

Copper Oven Cafe and Bakery(Don’t Leave Without Dessert)

In my opinion some the most unpredictable dining adventures you can have are at cafes and diners. You never know if the place just pulls everything out of the freezer or if they actually take the time to prepare homemade food. It’s the difference between enjoying a tasty comfort food meal or something that leaves… More Copper Oven Cafe and Bakery(Don’t Leave Without Dessert)
