Project Local Eats Week 5: Vietnam Nom & Antojitos Guanamex

welcome to Local Eats Project! It was an idea floated by local food advocate Mona Harrison as a way to promote the idea of ​​frequenting local restaurants and flooding them with support. Each week, we’ll make at least three restaurant suggestions covering different cuisines in different areas of the city. These will be restaurants exclusive to the Wichita area and ones you won’t find anywhere else. If you have any restaurants that need some love, you can recommend them here.

How to participate :

  • Eat out. If it’s something as simple as ordering a drink, stopping for dessert, having a full meal, support the restaurant.
  • Leave a comment! Whether you choose to eat out or spend the week away, leave a genuine, positive review if you like the place. Reviews can boost business and help their search position. Word of mouth works! Do it on your social pages, leave a review on their Yelp, Google, Facebook page or more.
  • Buy a gift card. If you want to avoid bombing the restaurant and are worried that it might be too busy, try to buy a gift card if they have the option.
  • Wait later. If you’re short on time, visit the restaurants listed whenever it suits your schedule.
  • Interact with their social media accounts. Like, comment, follow, share what you like about them.
  • Share this blog. Involve as many people as possible.

When deciding which restaurant(s) you plan to visit, it is important to note:


A sudden rush of new business, food shortages, staffing issues, changing hours of operation can be frustrating or can lead to slower service when eating out. Wait times may also be longer than usual and incidents may occur at unprecedented times.

These are in fact do not normal times. Give them the benefit of the doubt. Try to be patient and understand that the new reality is impacting everyone and most people are doing their best.
