One of my favorite restaurants in Wichita gets a second location! On my last visit to Taqueria La Chonai was told they are planning to expand southwest to Wichita later this year.
The Mexican Restaurant, located at 3415 E Harry St. has been part of our rotation since opening in 2020. Specializing in cuisine native to Jalisco, Mexico, I’ve stopped there several times for a dish called Carne en su Jugo . If you’ve never eaten it, the dish is extremely popular in Jalisco, Mexico. Carne en su Jugo translates to “meat in its juice”. It is a concentrated and savory broth of finely diced beef served with beans and a wide range of side dishes. Few places serve it, so Taqueria La Chona is a must stop for me.
When I picked it up I was talking to the employees and it seems the plan is to open their second restaurant dubbed, Fonda La Chona, hopefully by November. The new restaurant will be at 1210 W. Pawnee in the space of the former Jimmy Egg, which closed earlier this year. The second store allows them to expand their menu and offer more alcoholic beverages than beer.
This is great news for diners who have had enough of the same Mexican cuisine, as the owners of Taqueria La Chona are sure to bring something different to the table in terms of flavor.
Until Fonda La Chona opens, be sure to check out their flagship location. More information below:
