The dietary experts at Success Meals KC have a knack for creating healthy meals that taste just as delicious as their calorie-bogged counterparts. They concoct their nutritious alternatives according to a personalized meal profile, which they compile based on a customer's goals, caloric quota, lifestyle, palate, and ability to photosynthesize. By 6 a.m. each weekday, a bounty of three meals and two snacks lands on doorsteps, prepped for heating and eating. The three feasts include eatables such as a turkey-sausage breakfast burrito, a lunchtime mediterranean pizza, and grilled pork tenderloin, broken up by a midmorning snack and midafternoon dessert. Dishes are doled out according to several different programs, including ones for couples and kids, and are supplemented by guidance from dietary specialists to help achieve fitness.
Earthy aromas from fresh-brewed beverages greet guests at the door of Le Peep, hinting at the espresso-based creations that await inside—Colombian house coffee, specialty blends, or the flavor of the day. Beyond coffee, the staff also sweetens cups with fruit smoothies. These handcrafted drinks accompany a menu of breakfast and lunch fare dominated by omelets and sandwiches. Whipped eggs arrive studded with fresh veggies or chorizo sausage, and half-pound burgers come layered with Cajun bacon, weighing down tables so that they don't have to be anchored in place by linens made of iron.
Add some sepia tone and photo grain, and a snapshot of Hereford House could make it pass for an old Western saloon. But the photo would actually be of a modern steak house that churns out aged steaks, seafood, and ribs—the same fare that put Kansas City meat markets on the map at the turn of the century. In the dinner menu, most everything walks across the grill before being served. The steak oscar entree eschews the barriers that separate land from sea by teaming up a 6-ounce filet mignon with jumbo lump crab pilfered from crustacean birthday parties and pan-seared to perfection. Juicy tenderloin medallions come smothered in red-wine demi glace, and oven-roasted cuts of salmon arrive in pools of garlic herb butter.
Named Best Place for a Kid’s Birthday Party by the Pitch, and recently moved into a new and larger location in Tiffany Springs, Bounce House Moonwalks turns kids loose upon giant inflatables, interactive video games, a toddler area with a tiny roller coaster, and concessions. Parents can spend time using the free WiFi or hop around with their kids in the 24-foot-diameter spaceship that boasts air-filled aliens and a cockpit where kids can pretend they’re in space outrunning other inflatables. After zipping around the imagined universe, sock-clad tots clamber over, under, and through the plush tubes and barriers of the 72-foot obstacle course before cascading down its slide. Over at the Xbox 360 Kinect system, kids play interactive video games in which they use their bodies as controllers. Bounce House Moonwalks also allows families to leave the facility at any point and return within the same day for no additional charge.
Moti Mahal's cooks craft an eclectic menu of Indian specialties, reminding diners that Indian cuisine is more than just curries. Here, Punjabi spices season garbanzo beans, housemade yogurt smothers boneless goat, and simmering lamb soaks up hints of ginger and garlic. They can then compliment these dishes with naan breads stuffed with cheese or garnished with mint. Of course, the chefs whip up their fair share of curries, too, including the chicken goa curry, in which they stir tender chicken into creamy coconut sauce and fresh onion.
Whether they're preparing one of these curries or a seafood delicacy, they spice dishes to individual specifications. They can make adjustments for every type of diner, from those who prefer more mild heat to those who crave a good sweat after missing their daily jog inside a volcano. After meals, guests can cool off their tongues with desserts such as housemade mango ice cream.
