This year was the first one where I finally took place in KC’s restaurant week. We ended up going to The Tavern in Prairie Village which has been around for two years but I had never been. Restaurant week is something several places around town are a part of and they have a lunch ($15) option or dinner ($30). There are usually 3 different options for each of the 3 courses. So we sampled the bruschetta (amazing pesto and balsalmic reduction), filet (atop a potato mound of heaven), and espresso brulee (um, amazing). While I just ordered the ahi tuna salad (so hard for me to stray away from this since I haven’t been able to create it rare at home). My salad was so-so, but everything from the 3 course prix fixe was awesome.
Another new place was El Salvadorean, a place in cute downtown OP. I got eggs and chorizo with avocado and peppers. The chorizo was tasty and had just enough spice and was a great change up from normal breakfast food. Allen tried his first pupusa there!
Any tips for making Ahi Tuna at home?
