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

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

If there’s one thing that will keep me motivated on a 20 mile run it’s the thought of enjoying a plate of chicken and waffles afterwards. Until recently it was hard to find this opulent soul food combination in Wichita, but Krispy’s Fried Chicken and Seafood has changed that. This small restaurant is located on south… More Krispy’s Fried Chicken and Seafood(It’s All About the Chicken and Waffles)

Marrakech Cafe(Trending Now In My Stomach: Moroccan Food)

Wichita can tack on another cuisine to our diverse restaurant scene and this time it’s Moroccan. Marrakech Cafe opened up in early 2014 and specializes in food from the owner’s native Morocco. This small eatery is a bit tricky to find, as it’s tucked behind the gas station on the SW corner of 21st and Woodlawn,… More Marrakech Cafe(Trending Now In My Stomach: Moroccan Food)

Bill’s Charcoal Grill

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

Doo Dah Diner (Home of Habit Forming French Toast)

Typically diner food is something that doesn’t evoke much in the way of culinary excitement. Not to belittle these backbones of American food culture in any way, but dry meatloaf covered in ketchup just isn’t that sexy anymore. So when a new restaurant claiming to be a diner opened in town that offered such menu… More Doo Dah Diner (Home of Habit Forming French Toast)

Golden Bay

When you think of hole-in-the-wall restaurants Sushi places don’t often come to mind. For some reason most Sushi houses in Wichita are high energy places with music blaring and trendy interior design. Golden Bay, tucked away in a strip mall at West St. and 13th St. is bucking that trend. A small dining area and… More Golden Bay

Pho Hien

There is nothing like a big bowl of steaming Pho to take the chill off on a winter’s day. Thankfully Wichita is blessed with a bevy a places that you can get a good authentic bowl of this delicious Vietnamese soup. Our destination this day was  Pho Hien, located at Broadway and 17th St. On… More Pho Hien

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
