where good people and good food come together


This Ain’t No IHOP II

I put II because I’ve used this title before. LOL. Brian and I had brunch with Anthony at Succotash on Sunday. I have no idea what that word even means but, to me, it’s become synonymous with fantastic food.

The restaurant is located in downtown Kansas City. It doesn’t look like much from the outside. Brian and I actually started to wonder where Anthony was taking us on the drive up. The area is not the best. LOL. Although, after tasting their food, I’m really glad that Anthony suggested it.

Thanks for introducing us to a new and unique restaurant, Anthony!

The food at Succotash is almost as quirky as their decor.

They serve freshly squeezed juices that are so delicious you don’t even realize your drinking vegetable juice. Brian and Anthony had the “ninja sunrise” which consists of carrot, orange, grapefruit, ginger, and beet juices.

I had the “best lemonade” which is made with apples, pineapples, cucumber, a hint of ginger, and fresh lemons of course.

With so many interesting things to pick from on the menu, it was difficult to decide what to order.

While I was trying to make a decision, our server offered me a “sample” of their chocolate chip pancakes for only $2. It was a generous sample. I think I could have just ordered that for breakfast and been done. LOL.

I ate the entire pancake and didn’t stop there. It was “cheat” weekend and I was determined to take advantage, so I ordered pigs in a blanket. Naturally, because I’m a little piglet, I ate almost all of it too.

Anthony ordered Swedish pancakes with lingonberries, two eggs, and bacon. He’s vegetarian so I got to eat his bacon.

Brian had the burrito of love, which he said was very good and very filling. It doesn’t look like much from this picture, but Brian said it was yummy.

This is what a bite of it looks like.

I was tempted to order their signature 8-layer cake but, after my chocolate pancake and pigs in a blanket, I’d had enough. I could not eat another bite. I guess we’ll just have to go back for a slice of 8-layer cake next time.
