Kansas City: Columbus Park Ramen Shop (Japanese)

Eating Out


Happy FriYAY, Noshers!  I don’t know about you, but this has felt like the longest week ever.  I flew to NYC for about 36 hours last weekend (our original flight was canceled so the trip was even shorter than expected!) for some fun plans/Mother’s Day festivities, and I’m definitely paying for it in exhaustion this week! But have no fear, Friday’s here – which means it’s almost the weeeekend!  I thought I’d kick off this much-needed two days off with my delicious dining experience at Columbus Park Ramen Shop.  Cue mouth watering now… Continue Reading

Kansas City: Vietnam Cafe (Vietnamese)

Eating Out


One of the things I miss about NYC (specifically, downtown NYC) is good cheap pho.  I’m talking about the authentic, non-frills stuff.  Don’t get me wrong – I’ve lived on the Upper West Side, and there’s not really pho there that isn’t fancy/trendy/overpriced.  But access to phantistic pho (ha ha) was always just a subway ride away.  I was concerned I wouldn’t find the equivalent here in KC – luckily, Vietnam Cafe proved me wrong!  Definitely no frills but delicious, I’ve visited this place several times already. Yum!

The staff at Vietnam Cafe is friendly, quick, and I even got some good-natured ribbing when I ordered an iced Vietnamese Coffee at 7:30pm: Continue Reading

Chinese: Yummy Noodle

Eating Out



Happy almost-Friday, Noshers! Today I’d like to share Yummy Noodle with you.  Yummy Noodle is a no-frills, casual joint hidden in a Chinatown alley.  The service is brusque, the menus housed under glass on the tabletops.  So why am I writing about this place? Three words – cheap, cheap, cheap.  And good (ok, make that 4 words).

After the perusing the menu (under glass, of course), eating buddy and I started with…
