I spend an extra minute making up my mind, but I'm here for the cookies. A pastry case is filled with chocolate chip, peanut butter chocolate, oatmeal chocolate chip, and iced sugar cookies.
"I'd like a cookie." I say.
"Chocolate chip?" replies the woman at the counter.
But you can get back to the burrito basics at Burritos To Go y Algo Mas (recommended by reader Lois). The grill in a storefront, next to a busy Stop-N-Go, does one thing - burritos - at a level that exceeds the $3 you'll have to part with. Bring cash, though, because that's all they take at 701B Central in Kansas City, Kansas.
The idea of Twenty20 makes sense. A caterer has everything that one would need to operate a luncheonette and represents another use for a space that would just be a commissary for evening events. The dining room is predominantly a second-floor alcove where you can watch your sandwich being made in the kitchen below.
Pint bottles of Shatto's Whole Chocolate Mint Milk - the second of five planned specialty releases (Chocolate Cherry was the first for Valentine's Day) - are in stores now. A tasting panel spanning three decades of humanity thought the milk reminiscent of everything from mint chocolate chip ice cream to the (as yet uninvented) highest end version of Ande's Candies. Of Shatto's first two efforts at doctoring up its chocolate milk, this is the more successful concoction.
The bread begins as Farm to Market's sourdough. Then they add cocoa, semisweet chocolate chunks and dried tart red cherries. The end result is a dessert bread that you may end up eating for dinner. The limited edition chocolate cherry bread will be available at Hen House, Cosentino's Markets, Hy-Vee in Prairie Village and Overland Park (135th Street and Metcalf) and Whole Foods.
There are plenty of opinions on who serves KC's best tamales. Former restaurateur and cookbook author Lou Jane Temple, who frequently travels to Mexico, insists that there are no better tamales in the metro than those served at KCK's Tortilleria San Antonio.
"They're not heavy or doughy," she says, "but made with a light hand. The texture and feel of the tamales are amazingly light and satisfying."
I can't disagree, but my own vote goes to the freshly made pork tamales at El Patrón Cocina & Bar on Southwest Boulevard. They're addictive, with or without the creamy queso that accompanies the fragrant, corn-wrapped comfort food. And maybe even better than the pork tamale is the meatless version - no lard ever used, promises manager Jim Nimmo - with a fluffy, masa-dough wrapper enfolding cheese and strips of spicy jalapeño peppers. On a bitter-cold afternoon, tamales turn out to be not just nourishing but also warm comfort.
First up is Chocolate Cherry milk. Shatto is making only 2,000 bottles of the flavor. Bottles will be identified with the word 'SMOOCH' on the side (a nod to Valentine's Day) and are expected to be on shelves by this weekend (stores are getting deliveries today and tomorrow). If you're committed to getting a bottle, it's in stock at the dairy farm in Osborn, Missouri, right now. Each of the next four releases will have a signature flavor and theme.
