In a week or two, I’ll be going to the KC area for a four or five day trip. During this trip, I’ll have to make at least one run to Columbia, MO as a side trip. I’m really hoping to tap the wellspring of Doper knowledge and find a few really interesting places to eat. Most importantly, I want different flavors and new experiences. I can find great pizza, steak, burgers and BBQ at home in my small town location. Heavily Americanized Tex-Mex and Chinese cuisine may be tasty but they’re also familiar. Why would I travel just to eat more of the same? None of these interest me.
What’s special to eat in the KC area? Any kind of ethnic or regional cuisine is worth investigating. I’m not optimistic about my seafood options but if there’s a decent option or two then that would be desirable. There wasn’t much there when I lived in the KC area but that was close to 30 years ago and I can’t begin to guess how much may or may not have changed.
What are my interesting options?
