The Hungry Heart: Where Asian, Mexican and Southern Food Commingle Effortlessly

The menu at The Hungry Heart might seem like an odd mix of options at first, but most customers find that they actually appreciate the eclectic nature of the grub once they actually experience it. So don't be afraid to dabble in different cuisines during your meal at The Hungry Heart. Who says Mexican cuisine, Asian fare, and soul food can't commingle peacefully?

Start off your feast with a plate of the Ahi wonton nachos, which swap out typical tortilla chips for fried wonton skins and showcase cured tuna, worcestshire teriyaki glaze, and garlic aioli. Or dig into JD's Asian wings, which are deep-fried and smothered with a glaze of soy, honey, and white pepper. Save some room for a main dish such as the pulled pork sandwich, the smoked tri-tip, or the Nater's fried chicken—the latter accompanied by a Korean-style salad. You can also opt for fish tacos or Korean short ribs, so no meal at The Hungry Heart looks exactly the same.

Do Brunch at Doo-Dah Diner

Complimentary monkey bread comes on the side of every brunch dish at Doo-Dah Diner, and even if you're health-conscious, the sweet, sticky treat is worth a splurge. According to customers, it's the best part of the meal. And that's really saying something given that the entire list of breakfast and lunch entrees is top notch.

The crispy corned beef hash is a real hit among regular patrons, perhaps because it showcases juicy chunks of corned beef instead of meager strips. Mixed with onions and bell peppers, potatoes and cheese, and then accompanied by two eggs and toast—plus green chil sauce—it's no wonder the hash is so popular. So is the crab cake Benedict, which comes with the classic poached eggs and Hollandaise, as well as hash browns, grilled asparagus, and jalapeno-bacon crumbles.

The Alley Indoor Entertainment: Fun for All in One Place

There's really no better place for family fun in Wichita than The Alley Indoor Entertainment, at least if you like to bowl. After all, the establishment is primarily a bowling alley (hence the name). In fact, it's such a popular spot that you could have trouble snagging a lane during peak hours. Even if you do, though, you won't be left without any entertainment. That's because bowling is just part of the equation at The Alley.

It also plays host to a glowing laser tag arena where your kids can burn off calories without even realizing it while they dart around corners and sprint after opponents. The Alley hosts a go-kart racetrack, as well, if your little ones are speed demons. There's a big arcade, too, and if all else fails you can always keep your kids happy with pizza. At The Back Alley sports grill, pizza is always being served and the game is always playing on the projection screen and HDTVs.
