Re: “Sushi in Lee's Summit? Sure — on Rice Road, no less

Mint saved the day for my fiance and I when our Christmas Eve dinner went south. Love that place!

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Gareth, you're mistaken sir. The imperial pint (568 mls) is used in the United Kingdom and Ireland and to some extent in other Commonwealth nations. In the United States, two pints are used: a liquid pint (473 mls) and a less-common dry pint (551 mls). Each of these pints is one-eighth of its respective gallon but the gallons differ and the imperial pint is about 20% larger than the US liquid pint. This difference dates back to 1824, when the British Weights and Measures Act standardised various liquid measures throughout the British Empire, while the United States continued to use the earlier English measures. The imperial pint consists of 20 imperial fluid ounces and the US liquid pint is 16 US fluid ounces, making the imperial fluid ounce about 4% smaller than the US fluid ounce. Hope this helps.

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

@André Uttley A UK pint is in fact 20% larger than a US pint, not 4% smaller

Re: “In search of the perfect steakhouse burger

Celina's Burger is amazing and superlative. The restaurant is the ugliest eatery in the universe. I hate to eat there. It is depressing. Maybe that is why it is not on the list.

Re: “Drunken Fish nets a sushi hangover

I kind of have to agree with Mr. Reigel and Em...seems kind of a waste to go to a sushi restaurant, whether it is 'fusion' or the real deal and not order some real sushi. Makes me question this guys reasons for critiquing the restaurant. And bravo to you Mr. Reigel, I think its just find to stand up for yourself when some guy is painting you a certain way. Its only fair to get both sides of the story.

Re: “In search of the perfect steakhouse burger

More listicles about burgers. I feel like I'm living in a cultural desert devoid of articles about burgers. It's all I think about and I'm all like if only there was some sort of weekly publication that just published adticles about burgers, amirite? Cause then I could go eat burgers and pull a copy outa the box on my way in and read an article about burgers while I'm eating burger. I'm Mets like that.

Re: “In search of the perfect steakhouse burger

Celina Tio's burger at Julian and the Belfry (and Collection) is THE best burger in the city. I'm unclear why it doesn't get more press.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

It's easy to pick up a "to-go" order since Slaps BBQ is a block west of I-70 at Central Avenue. Like most of these popular specialty places, get there early....between 11-a.m. and 11:45 to beat the crowd and get out. The three men who own it want customer feedback about what you like or do not like. That's unusual -- most eateries don't care what the customers thinks. They just want volume. Give it a try -- there's no place else to go for food in that part of town.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

I'm not Dotte, but I am indeed a self-proclaimed groupie! Charles failed to mention the hushpuppies, which is my favorite side at Slap's. And the turkey is one of my favorite meats. At other BBQ joints, turkey is merely my "I'm on a diet" standby along with pickles. But at Slaps, it is juicy and flavorful - I love pairing it with the burnt ends on a platter. Yes, the line is out the door, but that's only because the place is so tiny! It usually only takes 5-15 minutes to order your food. I remember when OK Joes line was that short, back when it had "no wait."

Re: “White Horse Pub proves that there's nothing bland about British cuisine

Actually, I think a couple of observations made by reviewers here should be slightly corrected.

1. A 'pint' in the UK is an 'imperial' pint: 20 fluid ounces and not 16 US fluid ounces. A British pint is about 4% smaller than a US pint.

2. Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb; Cottage Pie is made with beef.

Dotte sounds like he's got the inside scoop. You workin' at Slap's or just a groupie?

They need to work on their sauce. It's not good. I usually eat at Hickory Log BBQ

I don't have time for all this waiting in long ass lines for bbq nonsense. OK Joes? Too long a wait. This place? Sounds like a hassle. I'd love some good ribs though.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

Slaps is the real deal no lie. For those in crackerland suburbia, plan a stop by when you are in the area at the right time. Don't commute in from your cul-de-sac and then cry on the internets when you didn't win your prize.

It's a new business. I believe they are trying to expand their output, also I have heard they are a bit slower on Mondays.

It's worth it. The meat is perfect. The sauce is super sweet, so be conservative with it until you have had a taste.

Re: “Want some contest-quality barbecue in KCK? Hurry up – you're already late

Oh well, guess you gotta get in line with the other early birds! My favorite place right now -and their burnt ends are to die for, but really, all their offerings are of stellar quality- is Next Year's Winner, up there near Briar Cliff. Trust me, the trek is worth it, and I've eaten at every barbecue joint that's worth a mention in the KC area. I like KC-style barbecue, and NYW gets an "outstanding!" in my book.
