My 10 favorite Wichita restaurants

Last week I was in a training class with some out-of-town folks. We'd talked a bit about where to go to dinner in Wichita, then the next day reassembled and found out that a bunch of them went to Olive Garden. Oh hell, people... mega pet-peeve of mine when people visit restaurants they could visit anyplace in the world.

So just in CASE you ever find yourself in Wichita, Kansas, know that we have nice places to eat here for lots of different tastes and budgets.

Here are ten good places to eat. I am no restaurant reviewer, but maybe that's what will make this list even better... it's short.

1. French for lunch - La Galette in the Delano district has wonderful quiche.

2. Hippy vegan for lunch - Again stick to the Delano district, but keep going down the street to the Lotus Leaf.

3. Thai Tradition - at Central & Edgemoor is lovely.

4. Sabor in Old Town - Latin with a nice seafood menu, I like the fish tacos a lot.

5. Felipe's Mexican - Marc's favorite. Closed on Mondays.

6. Bella Luna - Wichita has a disproportionate number of great lebanese restaurants, I should also mention N&Js here but just a warning they don't serve wine, that's why I'm giving Bella Luna the spot.

7. Cero's Candy - okay this is a chocolate shop. But stop in anyway because I'm friends with the owner and she's super nice. Best chocolate in Wichita from an amazing woman-owned business.

8. Bel Ami upscale, romantic, downtown, and well trained in the art of getting you out in time to catch a musical at Century II.

9. The Anchor A bar with a giant beer list but also really good food, soups, and sweet potato fries.

10. Italian food - if you're on the south side it's Marchello's, north side try Defazio's, they're both pretty good.

Thanks, I'll keep these in mind next time I visit my son and DIL. I think Sabor is their favorite, they go there all the time for special occasions. I'll have to ask them if they've been to any of the others.

I am saving this list for the next time I'm in Wichita. :-)

That's a peeve of mine too. I love going to local places. Actually, we prefer to do that in our own town too. I save chain restaurants for desperate times when a big party of people can't agree on food.

This all sound tasty. Maybe I should take a jaunt up there before my clinical rotation in Topeka is over.

I miss Thai House on West street the most...I go back there every time I'm in town! And I miss Bella Luna...Topeka is pretty devoid of ethnic food other than tex-mex and fake chinese. :(
