WICHITA — In the always-changing world of Wichita restaurants, here’s a few more updates:
– Taste of Thai owner Jeff Saysombat is opening a second restaurant Friday, but it won’t have the same name.
Saysombat is opening in the former Bangkok Thai Restaurant space at 2020 S. Rock Road and keeping that same name and menu.
Why open a second restaurant?
“I’m a businessman, just like other people,” he says.
– Froggar’s BBQ is opening May 25 in the building that once was Miller’s Bar-B-Que at 13th and Oliver.
“We’ve been doing catering for about a year now,” owner Jeremy Garvin says. “We decided to go ahead and take the next plunge.”
Garvin picked up the Froggar nickname in the Air Force.
“I always had the personality where I would jump first and ask questions later.”
– The d’Sozo vegan restaurant and market at 1812 S. Seneca is going to add cooking classes and a culinary school. Watch for details soon.
