I used to hate bierocks. My mom made them with sauerkraut, and I thought that’s the way bierocks were meant to be. Well, much to my surprise, I found out bierocks are actually made with cabbage. And a revolution begins! I’ve been making (and freezing) bierocks on and off for the better part of a year. They’re delicious warmed up for lunches. Because of this, I was excited to try a “professional” bierock. And my friend Faye encouraged this adventure. We figured what better place than Bierocks, Brats n BBQ in Delano.

I’ve wanted to go to Old Mill Tasty Shop for a long time. And luckily for me, I got a lunch date invite from one of my favorites, Sara! Bonus, her daughter Kathy accompanied us. Double-bonus, I got to order Girl Scout Cookies. Things in my life are looking VERY up recently, so I’m always afraid my house is going to burn down or I’ll get The Monella or something. That said, bring on Old Mill!

Awww. Isn’t it cute? I love downtown Wichita.

Disclaimer: I ruthlessly stole this image from someone’s Flickr account because I forgot to take one of my own. As far as I understand people don’t care if you use their Flickr images as long as you don’t make a profit (I won’t) and credit them (check it out). But if someone has a problem with me using the image, let me know!

Let me preface this by saying, I grew up in Colwich, and no matter how much pizza I eat (and I eat A LOT), I have never found a pizza I love more than Gambino’s. I have memories of going here after church on Saturday nights, spending many a snow day eating there, hanging out on quiet Sunday afternoons studying, or even getting to know the local police department on Friday nights (not for bad things, believe it or not) while my sisters finished up their shifts. I have nothing but good memories of Gambino’s and wanted to feature it more for nostalgia reasons, to give Colwich a shout out, and, well, so I’d have a reason to post some pictures.

Pizza is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Karla and I hit up City Limits Grill a LONG time ago. The pictures got lost in the shuffle, but we’re back with a vengeance. We ordered two things: a Tango’s Deluxe pizza and a Jalapeno Cheddar burger. Somehow I’ve misplaced the pictures of the burger. We were a split decision on the pizza. I actually liked the crust. It reminded me of the way St. Louis style pizza crust is supposed to taste. But Karla didn’t like it. She compared it to a cracker. So if you’re more of a deep dish/greasy crust pizza person, then this pizza will NOT suit you. If you eat deep dish but prefer thin crust or less greasy crusts, you might like it.

We hit up Thai Tradition last night, and I forgot to take pictures. Mostly because I was so excited to eat, I think. But this place needs no pictures. If you’ve never been, go. If you’ve never had Thai food and are intimated, go and get the Pad Thai. Better yet, go at lunch, get the Pad Thai (which at lunch comes with an egg roll and one crab rangoon) and the hot and sour soup. You won’t be disappointed. If you don’t like spicy, get the Pad Thai mild (when they ask if you want spicy, say no). If you like spice you have the selection of medium, hot, or chef hot. I am a spicy-lover. I put Dave’s Insanity Sauce in almost everything. I normally order medium then ask for the spice rack and add more spices, if I need it. I’m always afraid if I go hot I won’t get to enjoy the flavor of the dish as much. However, that said, next time I’ll probably go hot, because the last three times I’ve added a considerable amount of extra spices. Another good choice are the Drunken Noodles.

Go. Be with God. Er, Thai food. Same thing.

I’ll start this post by saying I’m not a big fan of Japanese steakhouses. I know I’m boring, but I don’t like the big shows. They make me uncomfortable. I think I can pinpoint it to two things: 1. I don’t like shrimp and they always do stuff with shrimp then I feel like I have to eat it (or god forbid they’ll throw it at my face). 2. I HATE, HATE, HATE being in the spotlight. And it’s like the chefs can sense this. Why don’t people let an introvert go? It’s OK to be introverted, people. Just like it’s OK to be extroverted. Give the extroverts their day in the heating lamp, and draw attention to them. OK, vent done. Strangely, I feel much better.

Does anyone know when this restaurant is opening? Or if it has? I haven’t heard anything about it. It was supposed to open this fall, but as far as I know it hasn’t. And I REALLY (really, really, really) want to go!
