Downtown dwellers who love Asian food but don’t love venturing out to get it have a new option.

Bamboo Express, a fast-service restaurant owned by first time restaurateur Tina Yang, will deliver food within a two-mile radius. The restaurant opened several weeks ago in the former Taco Tico building at 929 N. Broadway. There’s also plenty of room for dine-in customers, and the space is clean and bright through otherwise unchanged from its Taco Tico days.

The restaurant serves standard Chinese dishes such as sweet General Tso chicken, sweet and sour pork, Kung Pao beef and shrimp and vegetables. It also has fried rice, lo mein, and egg drop and hot and sour soup. Entrees cost between $6.99 and $8.99.

Hours are 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Fridays an Saturdays and 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sundays.

Metro To Go will bring you food, medicine, etc.

The Metro To Go-mobile.

Scrolling through Facebook, I recently noticed that The Artichoke had just signed on to partner with a business called Metro To Go.

As it turns out, The Artichoke isn’t the 3-year-old businesses’ only dining partner. Owned by George Odom, Metro To Go will deliver just about anything to anyone who is within the borders of 119th west to Greenwich east and 27th Street north to 47th Street south.

Metro To Go’s main business is restaurant delivery, which comes in handy in Wichita — a town that pretty much delivers only pizza. Those who place an order with one of the service’s “partner” restaurants, listed on its website, pay $6.49 for deliveries up to $30 and $1 more for every $10 above that. Partner restaurants include The Artichoke, Fusa, Le Monde, Saigon and more. Patrons also can order from a non-patron restaurant, but then the delivery fee is $10.

People use Metro to Go for other things, too, such as having medicine or other items delivered. Many of their customers are home-bound people or those who don’t want to fight the weather or their schedules to get out.

To use Metro To Go, visit the website or call  316-448-0308.

Fat Tony: He now delivers downtown

Good news for those who work downtown and love nuclear hot wings.

Fat Tony’s now delivers.

The sports bar at 417 E. Douglas recently started a delivery service within a three-block radius. Delivery is available daily, and orders must meet a $10 minimum.

I see a buffalo chicken pizza in my future.
