The Westport dining spot also recently added brunch (the menu is here), opening at 10 a.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Grab a plate of the rancho gordo beans served with braised kale, grilled radishes, queso fresco and chiles (add a fried egg or bacon for $1), the rotating chile relleno special, or the ultimate hangover cure in menudo. It's been a good week for Port Fonda with a recent piece in The New York Times leading to long lines this weekend as the crowds came out to taste chef Patrick Ryan's chicharrones.
But there's hope. Last week, Hostess identified two lead bidders for its iconic convenience-store pastry (a transaction expected to be valued at an eye-popping $400-some million). And now, Fat City brings you tidings of a four-wheeled Twinkie evangelist named Michael Bradbury.
"I've got a few mortgage payments wrapped up in Twinkies," says Bradbury, the owner and operator of the Funnel Cake Truck.
A whiff of cherry escaped, and when I stuck my nose in the top of the bottle, that whiff became a punch. But the first thing I actually tasted was chocolate; the cherry didn't come until the end of the sip (that evens out, the longer you work on it). While the milk is smooth and rich, the two flavors rob the whole milk of some of its volume. Shatto whole milk is like a cream volcano, but with this release, it's the cherry that coats the tongue. It's a fine start, but Shatto is actually a victim of its own outstanding chocolate milk. It's not that this is a miss. It just made me want pure, unadulterated chocolate milk. Perhaps most telling is that more than half the bottle is still there in my fridge this morning. As for taste comparisons, it was deemed closest to black cherry yogurt here in the Bender household.
The new bottle is more intriguing for what it may portend. There are four additional flavors slated to roll out later this year (any predictions?), and the skinny pints are, I believe, a new bottle size for the Osborn dairy. This won't stop me from taking the plunge with the next skinny pint, but I expect I'll be able to wait for my first sip until after I bring the grocery bags in from the driveway.
While Kansas City's Best Burger and a solid BLT are still on the menu (a full look is available here), Daniels has a few new twists at 1809 Grand. A day after what would have been Elvis Presley's 78th birthday, it seems appropriate to mention the Elvis Aaron - a peanut butter, bacon and banana sandwich on griddled toast served with a side of black pepper honey. The Good You food truck is closed for the winter, but the plates menu is available at the Green Lady Lounge from 4 to 10 p.m.
Case in point: Tasso's (8411 Wornall) annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party on Thursday, December 13, at 7 p.m. There will be plenty of Greek cuisine and prizes for the most heinous Christmas sweater. And don't worry, they'll still be breaking plates and featuring a belly dancer. Beer bottles are $3 and well drinks are $4.
The Westwood Hills chocolate shop is giving away a 3-foot tall milk chocolate Santa. If you stop in the shop before Thursday, December 20, you can fill out a raffle ticket. On December 20, a winner will be chosen at random. Annedore's is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
"We know a lot of people eat lunch at their desks. They don't want to do that; they just do," the barista explained to me yesterday. "This way, they can have something they can just grab and enjoy."
Kabuki is one of the city's oldest sushi joints, having opened in 1985. Back in 2002, Charles Ferruzza reviewed Kabuki (it has since been renovated) and had high praise for the Spiderman roll:
"Kabuki's Spiderman roll (which had its name long before the current hit movie) was a delectable combination of avocado, cucumber, radish sprouts and crispy-fried soft-shell crab wrapped in seaweed and sprinkled with garnet-red tobiko caviar," Ferruzza wrote. "The crunch of the crab, the silky softness of the avocado and the salty burst from the caviar made for a few lush and sensual bites."
So just like Hollywood, Kabuki will keep making a new Spiderman.
