Thanks for stopping by! From the start every blog, expense to keep the site up has been a one man job. Readership has grown over the years which has increased the cost to maintain the site. Providing Wichita with a great free resource to highlight businesses and restaurants has been a lot of fun.

Aside from working my 8-5 job and raising a family, this has mostly been a full-time hobby that’s extremely time-consuming and costly but still a joy to do. If you would like to help support the site in anyway, your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

While driving down north Broadway, two things dawned on me. There’s a new restaurant in the former Norma’s Gordita building called Silvia’s Authentic Mexican Cuisine. And secondly, I have never seen a lit up No Vacancy sign at any motel on Broadway. Since I’m all about trying new things, I opted for the first option.

Silvia’s Authentic Mexican Cuisine is a new Mexican restaurant that opened in the past month. Their menu consists of many native breakfast, soups, sandwiches, and other dishes to the owner’s homeland. They have daily specials every day ranging from dollar gorditas on Tuesday to dollar tacos on Wednesday.

I swung by and since it was National Avocado Day, I ordered a side of guacamole to go along with my complimentary chips and salsa. The chips had a good firm texture that held well with each guacamole dip and didn’t break apart on me once.  There was a lot going on in the guacamole. The cilantro, lime, and pico de gallo helped provide some balance to the richness of the avocado. It was a nice amount of acidity to provide a spark to the salty chips. The salsa was alright. It wasn’t too hot or spicy. But I’m also never one to turn down a bowl of salsa, so I had zero problem going to work with the bowl in front of me.

For lunch, I ordered five tacos of five different proteins along with a gordita with rojo. A guy I knew just happened to be in with his friends during that time and all provided big thumbs up for their tacos noting that barbacoa was the favorite. It’s always good to hear a ringing endorsement from others just when the food arrives.

I enjoyed the rojo. I was told it would be spicy but didn’t find it to provide that much heat. Usually raja is my go to but was not let down here. As for the tacos, some meats were better than others. My two favorite proteins were the barbacoa and pastor. The tacos are slightly on the smaller side but being dual wrapped tortillas, there’s more substance there to fill you up. The tripa wasn’t as good as many other places I’ve had around town. It had a slight fishy taste for lack of a better description. If I were to go back and order again, it’d likely just be the barbacoa, pastor and carnitas.

For cheap eats, it was better than I expected. It’s not ‘get in your car and go there right now’ type of good but it’s one of those places I would add into my rotation of restaurants when I’m looking to spend $4-5. The service was great; the lady helping me out today was super kind and helpful. Nice enough that I would go back to try some other items like their soups and sandwiches.

Here’s their menu:
