My wife and I are coming to KC for a Labor Day weekend visit. We've got the barbecue places pretty well scoped out (Oklahoma Joe's and maybe one more). Those are pretty easy to research (I've eaten years ago at Arthur Bryant's and the late Boyd's 'n Son, which might be the best barbecue I've ever had).
What we'd really like to find in addition to barbecue are some good ethnic restaurants run by members of whatever immigrant communities are strong in Kansas City (like the Bosnian restaurants in St. Louis or the Ethiopian restaurants here in DC).
I see on this board that there are some taco places in Kansas City, Kansas that look very authentic (these places have cabeza -- cow's head, which is always a good sign). Any other suggestions along those lines?
I'm really looking forward to coming to Calvin Trillin's hometown to eat. I guess it's way out of date now, but I think I read most of Alice, Let's Eat and American Fried out loud to my wife. Hope I don't botch the trip and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
