  1. Why you gotta be a killjoy? This post made me go call my cousin in Topeka (it's true Egullet does bring out the love in people!) He couldn't talk long playing golf. I would imagine Pirops is taking the same path. Carrol Shelby once said "If it ain't broke don't fix it!" Now I want to go buy a new Shellby 500 makes me miss my 1967 Gt/KR 500 I had in high school.
  2. I should probably start a whole topic on this, but I'm not sure it deserves one! Maison Rustique, I was born and raised in Topeka, and as I'm sure you know, it is chain city! However, one thing that Topeka does well that Kansas City does not is home-owned fast food. If you are looking for a good cheeseburger and the best onion rings I've ever had, not to mention really great apple pie, head to BoBo's Drive-In... it's been around a long time, so you've probably heard about it, or maybe even have been there- sorry if I'm repeating what you already know! One fairly new place that I went to
  3. In regards to "dress code" at Piropo's, when I've made reservations in the past they've made it a point to say no jeans, but then when we went this last time, they sat a couple in jeans, so I can't believe that they would turn someone away for not wearing a jacket! ← I never questioned it, if anyone understands restaurants have rules it would be me, so I made a note to go back and never made it. The owners and the owners of cafe Italia are related if I remember right or sam is, something like that, and they used to come into the octopus all the time. Heck her husband did a feature in his c
  4. All three will in the same area, I usually enjoy the danish in my auto on the way back home, they are quite messy(they flake alot! made with pure butter just like her puff.) Her white cake is awesome it has white chocolate in it, so it's supper moist and dense. The year I did catering I made 85 wedding cakes I was always out in her shop hanging around. When we worked together at the American she would throw me all her scraps, it made working for free fun! The new place will be her second location she out grew her very first one a few years back in Blue Springs and opened the new one a couple y
  5. The new Piropos opens Sat night 09.22.06........I didn't make it to the last one, they refused me it said jackets required they wouldn't count my leather bikers jacket. Pretty much the only places I'm interested in at the new local will be Dolittle's place, and Kathy's place the Pastry Goddess. She one of the few pastry chef's in town that are in the know. I'll gain 30 lbs this winter eating her danish since she is just right around the corner from me
  6. Wow, I never really wanted to eat there before but now I feel curiously drawn to. ← Since learning you were a flexatian until about a month ago(couldn't tell by some of your post detailing meat dishes you enjoyed at other places) this fake beef dish I was rattling off about isn't on my menu. should be up your alley! Cause it's fake. As in fake vegan I knew there was a reason I never put any merit into any of your weekly post. ← At least its Waygu...You know, not that cheap select stuff from CostCo ← Costco up date: I checked out their beef it is choice Colby and btw they had Wa
  7. Ronnie pretty much summed it up I've seen how animals were raised in Germany and it sounds like they just singled out foie gras.
  8. Thats for sure. On the other hand you can start *somewhere*. But I don't really know anything about the Illinois (or US) food-politics. In germany the production of foie gras is illegal. But not the import/possession/selling/preparing... Sad but true... With all due respect, but that is just a silly statement about a complex subject... Well, as I implied in my above post (actually, that was the point of my above post), I don't eat pork or poultry from "convential production" either. Do you?!? greetings kai ← The only pork I seen raised in germany was pinned never seeing the light of day
  9. Explain please let's hear your first hand knowledge. I've been to all the above mentioned.
  10. Better yet, why don't a few of you just go see if you can tag along for a dinner at a restaurant. Then you can answer your own questions eating out with her. Then you can call charlie and ask him the same. Do a study in food with both of them.
  11. Sorry Dave my bad, you are right. I guess that's why I like curry you just can't get spice from plain old salt.
