Re: “Warming up to three barbecue upstarts on the outskirts of the metro

I have been to "The Shack" several times in the last 4 weeks and it has been outstanding!!! The mac n cheese is worth a visit. I get freaked out about getting big clumps of fat in Gates & Bryants beans and their beef sandwiches. KC SmokeShack's seems to do a good job of cutting the fat pieces out. Many times going to Royals Games I will get Gates Beans but I have to spit 1/2 of the beans out because of all the fat they leave in their beans. When I'm at a Royals Game I get the Gates Beans because it's a cheap snack, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Oh, By The Way, The Royals Suck Again!!!

Re: “Warming up to three barbecue upstarts on the outskirts of the metro

I do not know what day of the week you went to KC Smoke Shack BBQ, however, our office tried this on a Friday. The only meat that was left to serve to anyone at noon was the pulled pork. He was out of everything. I will agree the pulled pork was dry, stringy and entirely too salty. All of us tried different sides so that we all could taste them. I found the mac-n-cheese over salted since he put his rub into the mix. The coleslaw with the mayonnaise base was barely palatable by Friday. The beans were so over cooked, they were more of a paste than a BBQ bean. ( I do not know how many times a week he makes his sides). I was hoping for a better experience, since Glen is a very respectable person. I can say I am not completely shut out, I would still love to try his smoke sausage, ribs and turkey.

Re: “Waldo's Kokoro Maki House makes decent sushi — and good Korean food

After living in this area for years, I'm finally glad to hear of someone that has eaten at Kokoro.....I guess I'll have to give it a try!

I'll have to check this place out!
There's also this Chinese restaurant called New Peking in Westport: 540 Westport Rd Kansas City MO. I've been there with my Dad many a times in the past and we liked their ja-jang-myun and jam-bong.

Actually they used to sell bottles of beer, but as you mentioned the majority of their patronage is carryout and you can't sell alcohol with carryout, so they probably didn't sell enough alcohol to merit keeping it in stock when they're literally surrounded by pubs.

Re: “Mapping your favorite sandwiches

Agree with Ben.

It's really impossible to find an authentic cheesesteak sandwich in KC except for the one place in KC that's know for making authentic cheesesteaks sandwiches with cheese whiz and Amoroso Rolls. Grinders.

Dumb articles are dumb.

Decent sushi? Kokoro Maki is the best most affordable sushi in the stretch from Waldo to downtown. My personal opinion.

Hi Charles! Delighted Kokoro is getting the shout out it deserves. But I miscounted — there's also Korea House at 888 Market. It's really just a lunch stand in the very large Asian supermarket but their food (especially stews) is solid and they make their own kimchi and banchan, which they also sell.

Ferruzza is pretty good at identifying meat between two buns

Re: “Mapping your favorite sandwiches

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this article was Mario's in Westport. I used to eat one of their meatball or Italian sausage grinders just about every week when I lived close by. mmmmm

Re: “A Fig Tree grows in Lee's Summit

Real cutesy poo article. Their food is still gross. Grow some balls and tell it like it is. Or just keep giving positive reviews to fucking dumps because they advertise in the Pitch.

Re: “Mapping your favorite sandwiches

You can get a Philly with cheez wiz at Grinder's, so it's hardly impossible--basically the place in town best known for cheesesteaks does them that way.

And Afficianado is right about the Philly roast pork. The version at DiNic's in Philadelphia is the best sandwich I've ever had.

Re: “Mapping your favorite sandwiches

I would kill for a good Philly style roast pork sandwich. Sharp provolone, bitter brocolli rabe and the umami of the pork is a sublime flavor profile.
