Checking Out Larcher’s Market

Finally had a chance to check out Larcher’s Market in College Hill.

Chris Townley and I both had the “Morning Delight” iced coffee and it was truly delightful. I ordered the 16 oz by mistake instead of the 20 oz. That’s why my drink is smaller than his. I’m ordering the big one next time.

I also got crepes to go.

Larcher’s is awesome. We are already planning to go back for lunch next week. The best part? They serve breakfast all day.

Brunch at the Belmont

Posted on May 6, 2024 by under Food and Drink.    

As many times as we’d been to eat at the Belmont over the years, we’d never been to brunch there. Dustin and Katie’s one o’clock wedding was the perfect excuse to do so because the church was just down the street from the restaurant.

Here are some pictures of our food.

I had the Dutch baby, which was so delicious!

You can’t really beat having ice cream for breakfast.

Brian had biscuits and gravy.

This is the Matcha Mango drink, which is basically like a breakfast margarita. LOL. It has matcha, mango, papaya, lemon, orange, and tequila.

Untitled

Don’t mind Brian in the pic below. He was a little bit cranky that I asked him to wear a suit to the wedding.

Untitled

Stay tuned for pics from the reception.

Brian’s First Time at the Kitchen (Or So He Says)

Posted on May 3, 2024 by under Food and Drink.

Brian says he’d never been to the Kitchen so we decided to have lunch there a couple of weeks ago. He actually really liked it. Not enough to dethrone Athens Gyros Express as his favorite but he’s open to returning and trying some other things. So we will probably be going back.

El Capital Seafood & Grill

I made Brian and Chris try a new Mexican seafood restaurant with me not too long ago. Chris and I actually went there before that, but we went on a Wednesday, and that just happens to be the one day a week that the restaurant is closed. I know. Weird, right? Normally most places choose to be closed on a Monday.

We ended up going to Doc Greens next door that day since we couldn’t go to El Capitan. A couple of weeks later, we returned on a Tuesday and met Brian there. Here are the pictures of our food.

I can’t say enough about the seafood soup I had. It was delicious. The shrimp offered a little bit of sweetness to balance the savory spices. Also, the soup had chayote as one of the ingredients. Chayote is common in Filipino food but rarely do I ever come across it in American cooking. In fact, I don’t even know the English translation for the word.

Anyway, if you ever get a hankering for some Mexican seafood, I highly recommend El Capitan. Brian could take or leave it but I really liked my soup.

Dinner with the Dills at Our Favorite Spot

Posted on April 1, 2024 by under Food and Drink.

It’s been ages since we’ve seen these two, let alone sit down to have dinner with them. They’re always running off to some luxurious resort or another, living the “Travel Junkie” lifestyle. Anyway, we finally caught up with them a couple of weeks ago. Here are some pics of our dinner at the Belmont.

Speaking of the Belmont, Brian and I are actually due for another visit. Our friend Jen Reifschneider who is the executive chef there recently revamped the restaurant’s dinner menu and I’m dying to try it.

In other news, Jay Dill was nominated as Visionary of the Year. Interestingly enough, I know two others who are candidates alongside him — Erica Case and Clayton Dir. I know Wichita is small so you usually know at least one of the candidates but to have three of them competing for the title in the same year is just wild. No matter who you are supporting, all of the money raised goes toward supporting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society so everyone wins. Best of luck to all the candidates!
