Wichita’s newest “food truck” serves coffee

Warren and Ann Tandoc, owners of Espresso To Go Go

I’m pretty excited about the newest food truck in Wichita, even though it doesn’t serve food.

Warren and Ann Tandoc have just opened Espresso To Go Go, a coffee shop on wheels that will travel around Wichita just like The Flying Stove. 

This is the couple’s second week in business. The shop operates out of a giant 1973 Airstream Land Yacht that the Tandocs purchased and remodeled. They invited me aboard this morning, and it’s a pretty awesome inside, too.

Warren Tandoc opened Tanya’s Soup Kitchen with his sister, Tanya Tandoc, in March of 2011.

But the two parted ways shortly after the business opened. Warren and Ann say they’ve always wanted to work together, they said, and Warren has experience working in coffee shops in Lawrence and Overland Park.

They’re serving a menu that includes Vietnamese coffee, lattes, espresso and more. At the moment, I’m sipping on a delicious iced coffee I purchased this morning from the truck, which was parked in the lot at Ruben’s Mexican Grill, 520 W. Douglas.

The Tandocs are getting all their coffee from The Spice Merchant.

Like The Flying Stove, Espresso To Go Go will update its location on its Facebook page each day.

They’re only working through Wednesday of this week because they’re having some graphic elements added to the trailer later in the week.

On Tuesday, they’ll be at Wilson Estates at 8621 E. 21st St. from 8 to 1 p.m. On Wednesday, they’ll open in front of the old Tommy’s at 2121 N. Tyler Road from 8 to 1 p.m.
