One area in Kansas City really makes me super happy every time I go to it! The houses are adorable, the places to eat are awesome and its kind of hidden in between parts of the city that are little more run down than others so it makes it a totally gem!
The greatest thing about the neighborhood is that it has a lot of awesome food places that support local, sustainable, organic products! Each and every single restaurant in this area is such a treat to go to but today I am just going to talk about Westside Local! The decor is awesome and the patio looks like a fun spot to just sit and chat with friends on a nice evening.
After hitting up a big flea market my sister and I were starving so we headed over to Westside Local for lunch. They have a small menu but that is just how I like it! It is a menu size that allows perfection across the board instead of too many choices and bad execution.
I ordered the the bacon, lettuce and heirloom tomato sandwich. They use Farm to Market grains sandwich bread, some beautifully bright heirlooms, greens and the best tomato jam I have ever had! I know it sounds crazy but this seriously was the best BLT I have ever had! I cant wait to try to make something similar to this at home.
My sister was a little nervous eating her, she likes chain restaurants and when a menu is full of ingredients she hasn't seen she is a bit turned off. I could have picked everything on the menu and she was struggling to decide what to get. She decided on the pulled pork since it didn't seem too off the wall for her and while she liked it, she declared that she would have to get the BLT next time because it was so good! I loved that they used a Farm to Market Pretzel bun, its one of my favorites and I thought the sandwich was good but didn't compare to the BLT.
I cant wait to go back with my husband and every single friend who wants to go because it was really good! I even put BLTs on our at home menu this week (yep taking up one of the two days that we eat meat) because I cant get the dang thing out of my mind!
