Chiquita’s Corner

Mexican and Asian are my two favorite cuisines, so I was intrigued when I heard that there was a joint offering a little bit of both. Chiquita’s Corner, located in Riverside at 11th and Bitting, is probably the smallest freestanding restaurant in town, but what they lack is size is made up in taste. Chiquita’s is… More Chiquita’s Corner

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

Gorditas Durango

When I am in the mood for a new authentic Mexican restaurant, I always start my search in the north-central part of town. The area bounded by Waco, 9th, Broadway, and 29th streets holds a treasure trove of street tacos, menudo, mole, and salsas just waiting to be consumed. My target on this day was… More Gorditas Durango

2014 Lenten Special- Our Lady of Perpetual Help Meatless Mexican Meal

Ah Lent,  that special time of year when Catholics and some other Christian denominations must abstain from meaty goodness on Fridays. It also means that dining options can be somewhat limited if you are looking for something more than cheese pizza and salads. While many restaurants do a good job offering meatless specials during Lent, at Our… More 2014 Lenten Special- Our Lady of Perpetual Help Meatless Mexican Meal


Frida’s was a small Mexican restaurant that Steph and I sadly discovered right before it closed back in 2010. It was one of our first dive experiences and got us hooked on “off the beaten path” dining. Their piratas and salsa bar were things of beauty. Luckily the owners of Fridas are back in the… More Molinos

Lalo’s Express

Words you will never hear on a Taco Bell commercial: “Try our new pork stomach tacos!” While most people would probably not jump at the chance to try a pork stomach, there is a place in Wichita that serves them along with other delicious Mexican fare. Lalo’s Express is located at the NW corner of… More Lalo’s Express

Juarez Bakery

If you think that Wichita is lacking in good local bakeries, then you have not paid a visit to Jaurez Bakery. While it’s location at 1068 N. Waco may be a bit off most people’s beaten paths, it is certainly worth the trip if you are looking for some authentic Mexican pastries. Juarez also doubles… More Juarez Bakery

Fusa/Red 8 Chinese/Chill Gelato(Sushi and Gelato Under One Roof)

Lured in by a coupon offering free gelato with the purchase of a meal we tried the 3 in 1 eatery Fusa/Red 8 Chinese/Chill Gelato the other day. Fusa is located in a strip mall just north of Kellogg and Greenwich. Apparently its original location was in the Towne East Mall, but since I try… More Fusa/Red 8 Chinese/Chill Gelato(Sushi and Gelato Under One Roof)

Mexico Cafe Delano

Cruising through Delano the other day in search of a satisfying lunch we decided to try Mexico Cafe Delano. I really like the name of this restaurant, it is self explanatory and leaves customers with no doubt as to the cuisine or location. It would be great if other restaurants would adopt this simple nomenclature,… More Mexico Cafe Delano
