Food - another one of Wichita's best-kept secrets 

(Wichita, Kan) ranks Wichita among the nation's Top 10 Surprising Food Cities. The website's editors were impressed by original Wichita creations such as the Nu Way loose-meat sandwich and the River City Brewery, which was converted from an early 20th century paint warehouse into a microbrewery and restaurant. The editors also noticed the "classic confections crafted from high-quality ingredients" by Cero's Candies and Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates.

Wichita is a foodie's paradise! Food aficionados can feast their eyes on the offerings of more than 1,000 restaurants spread across the city! Satisfy your cravings - from delectable Mediterranean cuisine to lip-smacking barbecue ribs - and every edible desire in-between.

The Air Capital of the World features even more culinary gems. Scotch & Sirloin has a worldwide reputation for its prime rib while Chester's Chophouse and Wine Bar features a 1,000-bottle wine cellar. Larkspur Restaurant in the Old Town red-brick warehouse district offers fresh fish, beef, chicken and pasta - along with artwork by comedian Phyllis Diller.
