Wichita Restaurants for Quinoa Dishes - J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc.

If you're getting sick of eating all of your meals with a side of rice, it might be time to start thinking about swapping that rice for a different kind of carbohydrate: quinoa. January 16th is National Quinoa Day, a day to celebrate the delicious nutty taste and incredible nutritional benefits of this whole grain powerhouse.

Whether you've never tasted quinoa before or just don't eat it as often as you'd like to, this is the perfect opportunity to go sample some of the quinoa dishes available around Wichita. To help you get started, our real estate agents have rounded up a list of their five favorite places to get quinoa around the city.

  1. The Lotus Leaf Café - 251 N. Washington, Wichita, KS 67202
    The Lotus Leaf Café is a favorite spot for Wichita's health-conscious diners to grab a bite to eat. Most of their menu is full of smoothies and other quick-serve health foods, but they do serve quinoa in an unusual format: tacos! Their homemade tortillas are made with quinoa and flax and come stuffed with either fried cauliflower or seasoned cod, topped with fresh Pico de Gallo and red and green cabbage. Both types are delicious, and the cauliflower version is vegan, too!

  2. The Kitchen - 725 E. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS 67202
    Hungry for some hearty fare alongside your quinoa? The Kitchen serves a variety of gourmet American-style dishes for people with big appetites and a love of classic comfort food. Quinoa is one of the star ingredients in their Italian and Mediterranean Buddha Bowls, alongside grilled chicken, fresh vegetables, and other toppings like pesto and fried chickpeas. These delicious all-in-one meals are great on their own or with a side of soup, salad, or French fries, and they're healthy enough to make the extra indulgence worth it. 

  3. Newport Grill - 1900 N. Rock Rd., Wichita, KS 67206
    Newport Grill is known around Wichita for its excellent seafood, but that's not the only thing they have in store. Diners can order a plate of fresh-caught fish served with a choice of two sides, including a serving of quinoa. The restaurant's Hawaiian Ahi Tuna and Miller Farms Chicken entrees also come with seasoned quinoa as part of the meal. This is the only restaurant on this list that uses quinoa as a side dish instead of a key ingredient, so it's a good place to go if you're trying quinoa for the first time.

  4. YaYa's Euro Bistro - 8115 E. 21st N., Wichita, KS 67206
    YaYa's Euro Bistro is often named one of the best restaurants in the area around our Wichita homes for sale. They're known for their excellent pasta, pizza, and steak entrees, but this time, you'll want to sample their Steak Salad. This protein-packed entree is served on a bed of arugula, spinach, and quinoa tabouli and topped with avocado, pickled shallots, feta cheese, fried almonds, beet chips, and sherry vinaigrette. 

  5. Chicken N' Pickle – 1240 N. Greenwich Rd., Wichita, KS 67206
    Looking for a good time as well as a good meal? Chicken N' Pickle is the perfect place for you. This restaurant is part of a large entertainment complex with a bevy of activities to enjoy, including gondola rides, ice skating, and of course, pickleball. You can taste their take on quinoa in their Seasonal Harvest Salad, a dish combining the grain with baby kale, goat cheese, dried cherries, apples, and a citrus vinaigrette to create a deliciously fresh and fruity final product.
