If you are looking for a different sort of dining experience in Kansas City, get yourself over to Port Fonda. We had a Quail outing the other night and because we heard it was for the hippest of the hipsters we headed down to Westport to see what all the fuss was about.
The guacamole was PERFECT. Thick and chunky without a lot of sour cream or anything else. It is served with chips or vegetables. We got both. You MUST get the vegetables - cucumber, radishes, jicama, sliced and served cold with a squeeze of lime and a sprinkle of spices. A taste treat. The chips were thick and crispy and looked like they were fried on the premises.
I had the Shrimp Veracruzano. Shrimp, peppers, onions, spinach, in a spicy sauce served with really excellent soft, warm, corn tortillas. After I got the eyes and legs off my plate my squeamishness calmed right down and I tucked into this dish with gusto.
Jamie had to leave her sunglasses on for the first 90 minutes of our dining experience because she was facing the window. She got a new lip gloss recently. Nancy was smart enough to set with the window to her back and were therefore not in the least bit bothered by the sun.
Getting dessert after eating mexican food is something I usually don't do. Please do as I did if you come here. You must try the Donas de Requeson. A ricotta "doughnut" with a maple-mezcal tres leches poured on top. It made my knees weak, in a very good sort of way.
