Quick Hits: 5/22/15

Haven’t written one of these suckers in close to three years.

Nonetheless there have been lots going on and lots coming up that I figured you readers should know.


Garcia’s Tacos

One of my old high school classmates father-in-law owns Garcia’s Tacos and told me last month that they were planning on closing in May. Looks like it’s now come to be. May 31st will be the last day at Garcia’s Tacos. When I reviewed this place back in January, I gave it a glowing review. It’ll be sad to see this place go. If you haven’t tried it before, read up on the review and make it a point to go there before they close at the end of the month.

Food Trucks at the Fountains takes place this Sunday at the WaterWalk for those interested. Outdoor Yoga starts at 10:00 a.m. followed by food service starting at 11:30 and ends at 2:30. Let’s hope it doesn’t rain out. For those unfamiliar with Food Trucks at the Fountains, you can check out my first hand experience at the event.
I spoke with an employee at Molino’s and I think the hope is for the location at 37th and Rock Road to be open by the end of May. Here’s hoping. I’m really looking to having some good Mexican food in close proximity to work. Taco Bell just isn’t cutting it.

The big day to determine the Best Hummus is tomorrow! I’ve gathered my group of friends and we are ready to grub. We’ve determined the list of places and they are as follows:

Bella Luna
Cafe Maurice
College Hill Deli
Le Monde
M.I.F. Deli
Mediterranean Grill

14 different locations and a great sample size of hummus options in Wichita. My friends and I are all really excited to do this. For those who were wondering, we are using store bought Pita chips to keep everything consistent. Everybody will also be allowed to use a spoon to taste the hummus without the use of a pita chip.

You can read more on the Best Hummus Project here.
I’ve been on a pretty good run of fantastic restaurants. If you haven’t had a chance to check out some of them, please do. You’re missing out on some great food options out there. Just a sampling below:

Angela’s Cafe
Fried Rice
Flying Donuts
M.I.F. Deli
Mr. Taco
Pho Hien
Sweet Basil


On my Project Best Wichita Burger, which Walts do I go to? There seem to be a lot of options for Walts in Wichita. Any specific one stick out as the best?


169 days until Wichita State basketball returns against Hawaii Pacific at Charles Koch Arena!


Otherwise that does it from me. I would say enjoy your Memorial Day weekend but it looks like lots of rain. I’ve always wanted to go to Seattle but I guess Seattle is coming to me instead.

Thank you to all the loyal readers out there. It’s been a pleasure writing more lately and messaging back and forth with readers over e-mail, social media, etc. My new goal in life is to become one of the Top 10 food bloggers in Wichita. I think I’m a fourth of the way there.

Happy Dining
