The first stop on the Taste of Wichita: The Artichoke Sandwich Bar
Wichita Junior League Taste of Wichita is officially underway and for our first stop we passed The Artichoke Sandwich Shop.
From November 4 to 13, diners can experience different restaurants around Wichita with meals at a fixed price of $15 or $30. I needed lunch and decided to stop at the old and trusty Artichoke.
The Taste of Wichita menu for the artichoke consisted of a sandwich of your choice (The Famous #8, Reuben or The Rachel) and a choice of side and dessert for $15.
Of course, I went with the Famous #8 which seemed like a no-brainer. It’s one of the most popular sandwiches in town, and for good reason. Add a pasta salad and you are in heaven. Order the cheesecake, and I don’t know what adjective is better than heaven.
A percentage of proceeds from each menu item will be donated to the Junior League of Wichita; a women’s organization committed to promoting volunteerism, developing women’s potential and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. So you’re eating for a good cause, which is always a bonus.
I’ll need dinner here in a few hours, so I’ll check out one of the Taste of Wichita restaurants later tonight.
