In the last issue of this newsletter, I looked at Kansas City’s signature cuisine (beyond barbecue). This week let’s look at what are Kansas City’s signature dishes. These would generally be recognized by many people as the popular dish at a specific restaurant.
Several decades ago, when I was living in the Washington, DC area, a local radio station (WTOP?) ran a contest to find D.C.’s signature food. This was an interesting question,
Excellent Mediterranean grill located inside a gas station in Waldo. Love their falafel wraps!
In my third installment of visiting bygone Kansas City restaurants, I look at Chutes, Waldo Astoria, Mrs. Peters Chicken Dinners, Italian Gardens and other family favorites. Look for future installments soon!
Waldo’s style of pizza could be described as “standard pizza house style.” There are no special gimmicks, just lots of options, executed well, with fresh ingredients.
In my second installment of visiting bygone Kansas City restaurants, I look at Joe’s Barn, Stephenson’s Apple Farm Restaurant, EBT, Whisker Rivey’s and other family favorites. Look for future installments soon!
This week, Chuck Eats KC has access to a culinary time machine. We can travel back in time to visit restaurants in the Kansas City area. Our travels today will mostly reflect my memories and favorites, but I have badgered a few friends for names of restaurants they fondly remember. Feel free to add your memories of these places or others in the comments below. There will be further visits by our time machine to Kansas City restaurants of yesteryear.
