Though it has since expanded to over 35 national franchises, Planet Sub traces its roots back to a single sandwich shop in Lawrence, Kansas, in 1979. The sub shop's growth and evolution hasn't coincided with a loss of personality, though—each location is furnished with handmade tables, and, most importantly, from-scratch recipes. The pride of Planet Sub is the made-from-scratch bread, whose simple ingredients satisfies even vegan customers: flour, yeast, water, sugar, and salt. Each day, the staffers mix and hand-roll the dough, yielding trays of golden-brown loaves. They also slice up fresh veggies, meats, and cheeses and prepare their own sauces and marinades. The menu appeals to many diets, from meat lovers (who might enjoy the Planet Sub's premium roast beef, oven-roasted turkey, and smoked ham) to vegetarians (who might gravitate toward a barbecue sub made with five-grain tempeh). Guests can try the Super Hero, made with salami, pepperoni, spicy capicola, provolone, red onions, lettuce, banana peppers, oregano, oil, and vinegar, or try The Experience, with chicken, pepperoni, bacon, cream cheese, jalepenos, pepper jack cheese, and a from-scratch chipotle sauce. Gluten-free bread is even available at certain locations; you can find napkins at all of them, in case you were worried.

Daniel and Selam Fikru, now husband and wife, met when they were high-school students in their native Ethiopia. They've lived in Kansas City since 1995, and together, they've helped a large following of locals try their first tastes of Ethiopian food and subsequently fall in love with its rich, distinctive spices. The couple's traditional recipes have earned their restaurant, Blue Nile Cafe, a recommendation from KCUR FM’s Food Critics, a place on LocalEats’ Top 100 Restaurants in Kansas City list, and attention from Pitch. But their success over the past two decades hasn’t come without hard work. According to a profile by the Kansas City Star, Selam is in the kitchen by early morning six days a week, simmering meats and lentils in a medley of ginger, garlic, and rosemary. Selam’s labors yield a bounty of entrees—served atop communal platters—featuring marinated chicken and cubes of beef or lamb, as well as vegetarian feasts of lentils, potatoes, and greens. Diners scoop up dishes with pieces of injera, which is a spongy sourdough pancake. In the dining room, cream-colored walls bear colorful paintings that remind diners of their meals' distant origins. For an additional taste of Ethiopian culture, guests can partake in a traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremony wherein staffers roast, grind, and brew fresh coffee to order. Guests can otherwise opt for refreshing glasses of wine out on the patio. In addition to welcoming guests into the dining room, Blue Nile Cafe invites them into the kitchen during classes that guide students in preparing injera and other traditional dishes. The restaurant also equips pupils with spices and grains for simmering over their own trashcan fires.

"Swagat" originates from a Sanskrit word that means "welcome," and owner Gurdev Choong takes that hospitality to heart?especially at lunchtime. That's when Swagat's all-you-can-eat buffet beckons with multiple entrees, rice dishes, warm naan bread, samosas, and desserts of syrup-soaked gulab jamun. "This is not your average strip mall buffet joint," says Northland Lifestyle, praising even the hot cups of chai that conclude afternoon meals. The culinary adventure doesn't conclude at the lunch break. Choong serves northern Indian cuisine during dinner hours as well, dishing up classics such as chicken tikka masala, mutter paneer with homemade cheese, and zesty curries. But "traditional" is never a synonym for "predictable." The shrimp tandoori, for example, marinates slow-broiled prawns in crisp mint for a surprising finish. For those wanting to emulate Swagat's cooking, a spice bazaar offers a safe, legal alternative to daring midnight raids on the nearest cumin silo.
