TRIBE Street Kitchen – “Tribe Bringing World Street Food to River Market” City Scene KC March 2018
We decided to take a roving tour of brunch sites to kick off our Sunday Funday. Our first stop, Tribe Street Kitchen. We loved the neighborhood vibe and once inside, thought the materials and finishings interesting, comfy and beautiful. Oh, and the blue velvet lined booths – can you say “fabulous”. We may be here a while…just sayin.
Service was casual and engaging…but really, when it comes down to it…it’s about the food and drinks! First on the agenda was a bloody mary, and what caught my eye was a “Bird’s Eye Bloody.” Thai Chili Vodka, Lime, and house-made pickles. It was delicious. The pickles were to die for and the spice didn’t kill you. What a great way to kick off the day…..or any day for that matter;)
Next up were to try the Molletes, which consisted of a toasted baguette, feijoada, queso Chihuahua, egg, pico del gallo, sliced avocado. These were ok, but later I saw you could order them with carnitas on top…OMG…my miss, should have opted for that option, because…well, we all need more pork in our lives. Next time I will definitely try them again.
The next item we sampled was the Fried Chicken Pancake Tacos. Hat Yai chicken, crispy shallot, tamarind syrup, mango, basil pancake was truly the bee's knees. It was SO CRAZY goooooood. The pancakes were thin and delicate, and they melted in your mouth. The chicken, crunchy and crispy but incredibly tender on the inside. The combo was just fantastic, and I’ve not had anything quite like it before. I hate to say it, but this kicked the butt out of a standard chicken and waffles. The syrup was , and the other flavors were subtle and let the chicken and pancake take center stage.
If you find yourself looking for an awesome brunch dish, I highly recommend this one! All and all we had a great time…and will DEFINITELY be back.
Oh, btw, they have a cute little patio..and it’s puppy friendly!! That’s just a bonus right there!
