A new restaurant and bar has opened in Twin Lakes Shopping Center at 2106 N. Amidon Road. According to their Facebook page, Andaluz Bar originates back to 2001 in Cancun. And now the owner has brought his concept to Wichita. Their menu consists of many favorites back in Cancun, along with bits of European and Spanish flair. Along with their eclectic menu covering different parts of the world, they also have a full bar with a range of tequilas, international wines and beers and an extensive list of classic and contemporary cocktails.

Andaluz Bar is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. One of the draws I’ve heard people tell me about Andaluz is their English Breakfast offered minus the black pudding. I’ve also heard their Spanish Breakfast is worth ordering. Unfortunately, I was only able to make it out there for dinner to pick up a carryout order.
While I was there, I saw they had Ceviche Borracho Shots on the menu. I was told it was ceviche with tequila. I’m rarely one to turn down some tequila or even ceviche, so figured why not order it. It came with two shots; I wasn’t complaining. They weren’t bad at all although I would have preferred the tequila to be chilled. It also wasn’t the easiest thing to shoot. I ended up having to scoop most of the ceviche out with a spoon before being able to gulp it all down.
For dinner, we ordered a shrimp tostada, the tropical ceviche which was two ceviche tostadas marinated with their mango habanero sauce, and they had a 99-cent burger special taking place that evening. It all took roughly 15-20 minutes to be prepared.
Here’s everything we received:
My biggest gripe was the tropical ceviche only came with one ceviche tostada; not the two it was advertised at. So $13 for one ceviche wasn’t ideal nor worth it. Both tostadas were alright. They didn’t have that bright, vibrant zestiness, we’ve come to love from other tostadas. The mango habanero sauce it came with was nice, but would have been better had we received two of them. Aside from the missing tostada, we’d probably put these in the middle of the pack of the ceviche tostadas we’ve had around town.
The 99-cent burger, which I don’t believe is a regular thing was also best described as OK. It was a little on the dry side and the potatoes didn’t do much to enhance the meal. The bun was the best part of the meal, it held everything well together, but the rest of the burger left a lot to be desired.
I want to return for the breakfast, so I’m hoping those really knock it out of the park to make up for our less than thrilling dinner experience.
