Lunch at Merle’s Place

Posted on October 17, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

Met Teresa and Jason for lunch at Merle’s place the other day. Teresa suggested Merle’s because it’s close to the Wichita Art Museum and it’s one of her usual lunch spots. Here are some pictures of our food.

Saturdate with the Hubs

Posted on October 15, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

Untitled

Had a wonderful lunch with Brian on the Il Vicino patio last Saturday.

Untitled

We started with our usual Caesar salads followed by the Vespa.

Untitled

We always split a Vespa. Except Brian’s half is minus tomatoes and spinach which I don’t mind having in mine.

Untitled

It was a nice day for an outdoor lunch and so, to extend our experience, we decided to share a flourless chocolate cake for dessert. It was so nice to have a leisurely lunch with Brian and just enjoy the day. We were in my car that day so we decide to take the long way home and rode around top down. I love days like these. I wish we could have more of them.

Lunch at Albero Bistro

Posted on October 14, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

After running into Tammie at Haus of Brews where we only got to visit briefly, we decided to meet for lunch and catch up. Brian happened to be off work that day so he joined us and the three of us got together at Albero Bistro. I’d never been there but since Tammie suggested it, I knew it would be good. Tammie has good taste in food. Or, at least, her tastes are similar to mine so I know if she likes their food then we would enjoy it as well.

Untitled

We arrived before the lunch rush. I think we were their first customers that day. We decided to sit outside because it was a nice day but I took advantage of the opportunity to take pictures of the restaurant’s interior.

Untitled

Their patio is a decent size and is nice and shaded.

Untitled

We started with the arancini balls, which were delicious! Definitely getting those again on our next visit.

Untitled

Tammie had chicken nachos — their version of it anyway.

Untitled

Brian had a pork sandwich. It was an odd choice for him but he seemed to enjoy it.

Untitled

Although he kept eyeballing my meatball sub. He said it’s what he’s getting next time. It was messy but very good.

Untitled

The three of us shared a tiramisu for dessert. Though, admittedly, I think I ate most of it. It was completely drenched in awesomeness.

Untitled

Untitled

I’m so glad Tammie recommended this place. Brian and I really liked it. The food was good, as was the service. I think we’re going to add it to our permanent dining rotation. Maybe we will take grandma here next time.

Until the next post. GNG.

National Pizza Month

Posted on October 13, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

In honor of national pizza month, I’m posting a couple of pictures of pizzas from one of our favorite pizza joints – Piatto’s Neaopolitan Pizzeria.

Their pizza is so good. Piatto is definitely my favorite place to eat pizza. Also, they have sangria on tap, which is always a winner in my book. Anyway, I hope you get to enjoy some delicious pizza this month for national pizza month! GNG.

Lunch with Amie and Alicia

Posted on September 28, 2021 by under Food and Drink.    

Untitled

I had the pleasure of having lunch with Amie and Alicia last week. Alicia picked the Rusty Nail, which was perfect because I’d heard so much about it and have been wanting to check it out.

Untitled

The place is kind of a hole in the wall. You’d never know of its existence unless you knew someone who had been there because it’s not really located in the best area. It sits on the corner of Lincoln and Washington.

Untitled

They do have a nice, spacious outdoor patio and I hear that they serve a fabulous brunch. The interior isn’t fancy but has ample seating.

Untitled

I took a few pictures inside to give you all an idea.

Untitled

They have ample bar seating as well.

Untitled

As for the food, here are pictures of what we ate.

Untitled

Amie had a salad.

Untitled

Alicia and I both had the Philly, except I asked for no onions. The homemade fries were great but the Philly itself was very messy and difficult to eat by hand.

Untitled

The food was good but not spectacular. However, I think I have to go back for brunch because that’s really what I’ve heard great things about. Our friends Jay and Becca have been wanting to check it out to so we may return with them at some point, whenever they are back from one of their many trips.

Until next time. GNG.
