While I’ve never complained about southeast Wichita’s restaurant selection (since I can’t even make it through my pared down original list), I was originally disappointed by the lack of one-off Mexican restaurants. There used to be a spot at Lincoln and Oliver, in the shopping center near Southeast Carryout. And of course, you always have Felipe’s at Harry and Webb. And the lesser-known La Posada a little closer to Kellogg at Oliver. But I love cheese, and my cheese craving most successfully gets fulfilled at Mexican (or Tex-Mex) restaurants. And for the most part, I had to hit up Felipe’s to get that fill. Not that that’s bad. But nonetheless, I was excited to see a new spot in the old Angelo’s on Oliver. OK, I know it’s been other places since Angelo’s but that’s what I always think of. Man, what I’d give for an Angelo’s vegetable sandwich with extra Italian dressing. But I’m digressing. We’re here to talk cheese. Let there be cheese!

Ate lunch at Playa today. It was delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I forgot to take pictures. Gasp! Sorry. So what did I get that’s brought me here even without pictures? I had their fajita taco salad. Or something with a similar name. It was probably the best taco salad I’ve had since JJ’s Corner in Colwich, America! (Which no longer exists, and hasn’t for awhile, sadly.) Fresh made taco salad shell, which is open on the front for easier eating. Plus fifteen points. Instead of ground beef taco meat (they do have a salad that way), this one has steak or chicken fajita meat (I had steak). Plus five points. And fajita onions and peppers. Plus ten points! Then I think it’s topped with cheese sauce. Plus eight points. Followed by lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, and guacamole. Plus fifty-eight points. Hell yeah. This puppy was perfection! Perfection to the tune of what? I don’t know. Like 96 points. Out of how many? It doesn’t matter. All that matters is it was good!

Yes, better than OTB’s taco salad with honey mustard and ranch. Or however you order it, Karla. So much better. Trust a sister. Or come with me next time to get one!

As the weather is starting to get fall-like (or as I like to call it, “high school football weather” – not because I go to HS football games anymore, just that that’s what this weather reminds me of), it’s time for soup. And lots of it! Hell yeah for soup!

Hello. I am like chili. Only better!
