WICHITA — Diners soon will once again be able to find tacos at 3425 East Douglas.
Now, Angel Varela and M.M. Karim are opening Taco Tinga there.
Varela used to own the La Hacienda grocery at 31st and Hillside and the La Picosa restaurant within it.
His new restaurant will be similar to a Chipotle Mexican Grill in that customers will walk in and select ingredients from a counter featuring various fillings for tacos, burritos, sandwiches and quesadillas.
Unlike Chipotle, there will be some ready-made items as well, such as chili rellenos and enchiladas.
Initially, Taco Tinga will be open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. Later, breakfast will be available, too.
The restaurant opens Aug. 1.
