Off the Beaten Plate: Super Burrito at Border Bandido

Hmm, while I sort of tend to agree with the above, I have a long standing memory of being poor in the 80s and eating at one of these in Kansas City. It was positively dreadful. Probably not fair to associate one with the other but that's not an appealing photo. You eat with your eyes, too.

The java experiment: Downtown resident opens Alchemy Coffee at 19th and Massachusetts

Hands down the best cup of java in town. The guy is a mad scientist!

Off the Beaten Plate: Peanut Butter Pie at Intorno

Maybe not the worst, but certainly one of the saddest. They're getting hammered by diners shelling out pricey tabs on sites like Yelp, and from my experience dining there twice, rightly so. Won't be returning.

"Raw sweet shrimp." Had it. Terrific.

Conquistadores: Suddenly, downtown Lawrence is rife with Latin-tinged restaurants

Most sub-par, Esquina included. Krause knows how to cook but the supervision in that restaurant is a disaster. Changing the menu and focus won't change anything unless there's better supervision. Mexquisitio--disappointing first visit.

Paula Deen cooks up disappointment with diabetes drug announcement

Appears Tony Bourdain was right. As for her show and personality, never cared for either.

Campus Hideaway Roll Cafe

I agree this little joint is a gem. The people are just the nicest folks you'll every meet and really do seem to be enjoying serving their customers. For the money, this is some of the very finest chow downtown. The BBB is exquisite and the rice bowls are a hearty balanced meal. For a starving college student, the Ramen noodle (much better than the packaged stuff you make yourself) is enough to feed two and is delicious, all at a price of $3.69. The free ginger tea is a nice added bonus. Our newest favorite carry-out for game days.

Campus Hideaway Roll Cafe

Their rice bowls are some of the best chow to be had in downtown in my opinion, and the Ramen bowl at $3.69 is easily big enough to feed 2-3 people. If I was a hungry college student, this is where I'd be hanging for the best value in food in the downtown. Nothing compares. Great food served by some very, very nice people. We've been there three times in the past week. We'll slow down at some point but intend to try everything. Only thing I wasn't crazy about was the Korean version of sushi. I'll stick to their rice bowls and soups--they're superb. Oh, and the free hot barley tea is a treat as well. Very highly recommended.
