When you think of Kansas City, you think of BBQ, music, and culture that knocks your socks off. We recently spent 24 hours in Kansas City and found all of the above and more!
It’s true, Kansas City is a BBQ lover’s dream come true. We had a great taste of Kansas City’s BBQ at Char Bar. We then experienced seafood at Bristol Seafood Grill. This was a small sampling of the different flavors that Kansas City has to offer.
Char Bar offered up Kansas City’s famous naked burnt ends and all the fixing’s, which included outstanding baked beans.
Our appetizer kicked things off the right way with these Cheesy Hushpuppies at Char Bar.
These mouthwatering hushpuppies were composed of stone-ground grits that were out of this world.
Bristol Seafood & Grill located in the Light & Power District offered another flavor of Kansas City. Here we had lobster mac and cheese. We tend to like our mac and cheese with a little crunch, not too creamy and just right.
We are pleased to say…. Bristol Seafood & Grill offered a fantastic taste of seafood in the heart of the midwest.
A visit to Kansas City would not be complete without swinging into Cosentino’s Downtown Market. We ate breakfast here and we had a nice selection of breakfast foods, including fresh fruit. You serve it up yourself and dish your meal into a to-go container. Breakfast is priced by the pound, so if you want to indulge in several chunks of pineapple, your breakfast may be priced higher.
Cosentino’s is a Kansas City area favorite and we would add that it quickly became a favorite of ours.
The bakery is out of this world, as well as the nice selection of local wines and brews.
The marketplace is also loaded with colorful fruits and vegetables. Cosentino’s will make your meal planning easy. The large selection of food and drink is right at your fingertips. You can shop till you drop at Cosentino’s.
If a quick slice of pizza is calling your name, swing into the Pizza Bar. The service is quick, the environment is fun while enjoying a slice of pizza.
24 hours is simply not enough to indulge in all of the flavors that Kansas City has to offer. We look forward to a return visit and maybe comparing a few BBQ joints.
Do you have a favorite BBQ joint in Kansas City? We would love to hear which one is your favorite.
Thank you to Visit KC for hosting us.
