Two Friday restaurant reviews

Yummy food from Chiang Mai

This morning’s Wichita Eagle has not one but TWO restaurant reviews for your reading pleasure.

I wrote the one about Garden Grill Cafe, which is vegan chef Miguel Larcher’s new restaurant in the Occidental Building at 300 N. Main.  I’m a steak girl, but I loved this place because I’m also a mushroom and tomato girl.  I can’t wait to go back and have more of the restaurant’s fabulous vegan pizza. I felt downright healthy when I left.

The other is a review of Chiang Mai, a fabulous Thai restaurant at 3141 S. Hillside, has been around for years. It’s one of those “hole-in-the-wall” finds that make foodies happy. This review was written by Wichita Eagle Dining Panel star Philip Warren.

Do yourself a favor and eat at both of these restaurants soon. Do yourself a bigger favor and go after a few days have passed. Restaurants are usually busy the day their reviews are published.
