The candy corn milk had echoes of the birthday cake milk (the previous release) in that both shared the sweetness profile of the cupcakes in a grocery store bakery. Ultimately this is Halloween in milk form, in as much as Shatto's pumpkin spice eggnog is a taste of fall. With seven new flavors in the books, which should Shatto bring back for years to come?
He pointed at the comically large cardboard box I was balancing. Inside the box was a footlong bun loaded down with smoked brisket, primary-colored swatches of cheese and bell peppers, and a burping river of barbecue sauce: the Kansas City Chiefsteak.
The stadium has introduced its newest sandwich in homage to Andy Reid, the mustachioed head coach whose most recent previous job was in the city of angioplasty. (Philadelphia has not officially adopted this slogan. Yet.)
The newly opened suburban taqueria, Taco Republic, at 500 County Line Road in Kansas City, Kansas, has been wildly busy since it opened last week. On Sunday night, well after 8 p.m., there was still a large group of people waiting for a table to sample the "street tacos" at the new Bread & Butter Concepts restaurant (the company that brought you Urban Table and BRGR).
For hungry customers who don't want to wait for a table to open on the West Side of the metro, there's always the spiffy Taqueria El Torito over on the East Side - at 6126 Independence Avenue and located in a former Burger King - which is owned by the family that operates the popular grocery and carniceria next door, the Torito III market.
Although their Overland Park restaurant, The Basha Mediterranean Cuisine at 7016 West 105th Street, is only six months old, restaurateurs Mohammed Mosley and Nader Shehata are starting to make a few changes. But getting a liquor license is not one of them.
Customers have asked when Mosley and Shehata are going to start serving wine or beer with their mixed grill platter, lamb chops or delicious vegetarian dishes. The answer: Never.
"Alcohol is prohibited by our religious custom," Mosley says. "But our customers really don't seem to mind. We're surrounded by bars here. If our patrons want a cocktail, they can go next door before or after dinner."
The dairy in Osborn, Missouri, released five previous flavors: blueberry (last month), chocolate cherry, mint chocolate, cookies and cream and apple pie. The latest flavor was created as part of a benefit for the Ronald McDonald House in Kansas City (each bottle comes with a hang tag encouraging milk drinkers to donate). The sentiment is sweet - the milk is sweeter - but birthday cake milk is ultimately not my cup of frosting. Does this milk make you want to celebrate?
As the truck's generator hums and the crowd grows to a dozen people, the flatbreads are getting loaded up: pulled pork, chicken, chorizo. There's a sweet mix of creamy peanut butter, Nutella and banana. Everything but the dessert arepa gets a generous pat of butter and melted muenster cheese on top.
There were 10 courses - tasting-sized offerings - served last Friday night at Uberdine, the one-night-only pop-up restaurant experiment by local chef Joe Shirley and his wife, Carolina. Each course was delicate, dainty and, on those big serving plates, almost starkly beautiful.
No one seemed to mind the petite portions. Chef Shirley's vivid sense of invention was on full display in the Roasterie's Bean Hangar event space. He also incorporated many of the Roasterie products into his dishes, including its coffee barbecue rub and sauce in an elegant variation on sauteed trout. And for all of his creations' studied artfulness, taken as a whole, the meal was completely satisfying.
Shatto will have bottles at its stand at the Overland Park Farmers Market on Saturday and it's also currently available in stores that regularly stock its products. The previous special release flavors were chocolate cherry, mint chocolate, cookies and cream and apple pie. If you've had a chance a try any of them, which do you think should stick around past this year?
