So shoestring, sticks or steak fries, they're being put into the great fry-o-lator (which, for our purposes, shall be taken to mean a french fry calculator). Should you need some inspiration, I'll offer up the Detroit Coney Food Truck (read about them here), L.C.'s and Haus (when they're right). Now, you're on your own in the comments. Who has the best french fries in Kansas City?
Grimes opined on our love for quick and easy meat products (if you need proof, perhaps this Jimmy Dean sausage rant can convince you), but had no comment on the possibility of a bacon hot dog. If ever a food was destined for the rollers at the gas station, it's a hot dog stuffed with bacon. OK, readers, time to confess. How many meals are you eating in a day?
The Orlando Sentinel writes that the Darden Restaurants - the group behind Olive Garden and Red Lobster - are considering eliminating automatic gratuities for parties of eight or more (they've already taken away the automatic 18 percent at about 100 restaurants). In the piece, Kansas City waiter David Hayden worries that the move could leave servers in the lurch. As Hayden tells The Sentinel, "There are too many times when you can really end up in the hole waiting on a table because they didn't leave an adequate tip."
Should restaurants drop automatic tips for large parties?
In Kansas, you have to call the local sheriff and have it tagged before a deer can be taken to a processing plant. The Missouri Department of Conservation has a recipe for Skunk Pot Roast on its website. I've had rattlesnake (of the nonroadside variety) and venison jerky (made from a deer that allegedly tangled with a Ford), and I was happy with both experiences. But given the choice, would you knowingly eat roadkill?
So let's help out the location scouts. Which bar would you want to see on Bar Rescue? Keep it civil, please.
Czar Bar officially brought the Kansas City Taco Co. in-house last month. Mi Pueblito Meat Market (1311 Minnesota) has Nopalitos - pads of the prickly pear - tacos and In-a-Tub (enjoy Charles Ferruzza's 2011 piece on the KC cult classic here) continues to lure unsuspecting Northlanders. But it's Tuesday - the day when bars across the city slap together some ground beef and neon-yellow cheese and ask but a dollar for their troubles - so let's find a good folded tortilla. Who makes a terrific taco in Kansas City?
Here, in Kansas City, we've got the KC Barbecue Tour and Taste of Kansas City Food Tours. If sherpas, carrying hot-sauce packets and miniature bottles of Schnapps to counteract the cheese fondue, exist in the hills of KC, would you hire one as a food guide? What if you were in a city you didn't know?
And because we talk about Kansas City-centric barbecue often in this space, let's change it up a bit today. Assuming you're going to cheat on a local establishment or you simply have to travel for business, what are the barbecue joints outside Kansas City that you've got circled on your eating itinerary?
Meanwhile, back in Kansas City, we've got the chocolate old-fashioneds at Hana's Donuts. But for those who need a little zing, there's still red velvet and rainbow-sprinkled. So, round-cake eaters, here's the quandary: Are doughnuts in need of a cakeover or does grandma really know best?
So picture a cool glass in your hand, a few beads of condensation on the outside, and a full glass of tart citrus on the inside. Who has the best lemonade in Kansas City right now?
