I'll Have the Number Three










There are many compelling restaurants in Kansas City I'd like to to try. So why do I often end up dining at tried-and-true but completely predictable Mexican restaurants? Here's how it happens. They're ubiquitous. Between fast food chains and countless independent operators, a burrito platter is never further than an intersection or strip mall away. Secondly, some establishments serve as neighborhood landmarks. When attempting to arrange a meeting, it's much easier to say "Manny's at noon" rather than suggesting "that new Thai restaurant in the alley two blocks southeast of Manny's." That's why I'm ordering the number three with shredded beef. Again.

    There are some places that are popular but in reality is over-rated and overpriced. Name recognition does wonders.
    word verification: "mense"

    May I suggest this:

    (Ortega's Mini Market)
    2646 Belleview Ave, Kansas City, MO 64108-2325

    One of the best places in town to get a real Mexican lunch.

    I love the tacos al pastor. The cheek (cabeza) meat tacos are wonderful too.
