Eating good food in Lee's Summit

Their poutine isn’t overly expensive and the portions are huge

There are some challenges with living in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. The weather is the biggest. We get lots of rain and snow, and the winter season seems to last forever. When warmer weather finally arrives, it gets hot and sticky very quickly. However, one of the best things about this area of the country is the food. The whole state of Missouri has amazing restaurants and recipes. The hot dogs from the street vendors are like nowhere else, and nothing compares to our deep dish pizza. One of my favorite dishes is poutine. I’m always surprised when friends of mine from out-of-state visit, and they’ve never even heard of poutine. They are missing out. Poutine is the ultimate in comfort food and a masterpiece of fries topped with cheese curds and hot gravy. Sometimes it gets a few additions like bacon, pulled pork or chili. Poutine isn’t for the health conscious. It’s high in calories and low in nutrition but so tasty. Cheese curds are a byproduct of coagulating milk and have a lumpy consistency that goes perfectly with the soft fries and gravy. The word “poutine” is slang for “mess,” and the dish was originally invented in Canada. My favorite place to order poutine in Lee’s Summit is a little family owned restaurant that is always crowded. They use thick-cut fries and a beef gravy made from scratch. Their poutine isn’t overly expensive and the portions are huge. Whenever friends or relatives visit me, I take them out for poutine in Lee’s Summit. Anyone who is skeptical loves it after just one bite.
