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.

When it comes to food, I don’t believe dishes have to be created a set way. I love the world of fusion food. There’s one truck I’ve enjoyed who has really excelled in that realm and they are Funky Monkey Munchies. They have prided themselves on Chino-Latino fusion foods but have also gone beyond that. They can do it all. In the past year, they have won Peachfest and Pumpkinfest where they were tasked with creating a creative dish infusing an ingredient featured at the festival. It just displayed the amount of artistic and inventive talents.

There were many different items on the items on the menu that all sounded delicious but I ended up with their pork belly tacos, Vietnamese eggrolls and raspberry lavender lemonade. If I had the room, I would have also ordered the Chicano tots.

While the food truck rally was extremely busy, the service time at the truck was quick. That’s one big thing I should note about many of the trucks. At the start of food truck’s popularity, many trucks suffered from long wait times. But over the years, I really think they have streamlined their processes to make it a quick visit for all diners to the point it’s a very viable option for any lunch break.

Let’s start off with the tacos. I apologize for the poor picture as it really doesn’t give the full effect of the tacos. In the picture it looks like just a spring mix on a tortilla. But underneath the greens was a thick layer of marinated and grilled pork in a sweet miso sauce. The sweet miso sauce gave a good balance with the savory pork; just an amazing combination that worked so well. At two tacos, I was surprised how filling it was.

The Vietnamese eggrolls were some of the largest I’ve seen. Growing up on this appetizer, I was so used to the miniature-sized ones. These were about twice the size with twice the filling of pork, cabbage, carrots and glass noodles all while maintaining a thin crispy shell that wasn’t greasy at all. At three of them, it was really like eating six.

And I’m a big fan of all sorts of lemonade. I just love that tart acidic taste of it. The raspberry lavender lemonade was no different. It was the thirst-quenching drink I needed on the hot afternoon at the zoo.

Funky Monkey Munchies is easily one of my favorite food trucks around town. I love their creativity and not sticking to creating dishes by the standard.

Here’s the menu they had available that afternoon:
