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.
The Rehabilitation Institute threw Bacon-Fest last Saturday, with proceeds from ticket sales going to the “nonprofit medical rehabilitation employment placement provider for children and adults with disabilities.” Tickets went from $20 (thanks, Groupon!) to $100 (VIP style — early admission, private beer stands, bathrooms, and access to an air-conditioned indoor area).
“I just started experimenting on a standard upright smoker,” Kiefer says, “and that worked — incredibly poorly.”
The staples of cattle cookery — hickory and oak chips — overpowered the mild flavor of most cheeses. Only sharp cheddar stood up to the smoke, and even then the resulting substance was smoky first and cheddary second. He tried resting the cheese on pans of ice in the smoker, but the heat still robbed it of its creaminess.
“You usually cook meat at 225 degrees for so many hours,” he says. “If you cook cheese at 225 degrees, you’ll just have a runny mess in the bottom of your smoker. Thankfully, I never did that.”
Still, he says, “I ruined a lot of cheese for seven years. But I stuck with it.”
"My team would have been clocking in, getting ready to start baking right at 5 a.m., and they probably would have been just witness to all of the chaos," owner Erin Brown told KCTV.
The bakery's front room was damaged, but nobody was hurt in the crash. With plywood covering the smashed front window, the bakery is open today.
Is this the same guy who had the Chili Shack across from City Hall? Who…
Where did it say they 'respect' Guy Fieri?? Barkeep should have just said the owner…
I've got two kids. I don't mind taking them to fast food places, but sit-down…
Ham salad? Named after a Guy Fieri snazzy word? Move over Colby Garrelts, this place…
Anyone who respects Guy Fieri is going to never get my business.
