Welcome Kansas City Planet ComicCon: The local visitors to this weekends Planet ComicCon have a lot of great food options near the convention hall. Galactic visitors to the convention might enjoy KCFoodGuys.com reviews of some the best cosmic restaurants and sci-fi dishes.
Mos Eisley Cantina, Tatooine: Once labeled as a “wretched hive of scum and villainy” this lively cantina has been reborn with drink specials and a happy hour including their famous yummy fried vaporater mushrooms. Despite a few rough characters, and a steady stream of tourists from the nearby spaceport, this bar and grill has something for everyone, except droids. Bonus points for live music by Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes.
Terminus / Walking Dead: The Herford House is closed but fresh choice cuts are always on the wood fired grill at Terminus. This red meat is accompanied by fresh greens grown in the Terminus court-yard. Non traditional butchering techniques make Terminus a quirky and acquired taste.
Taco Bell / Demolition Man: Who knew that Taco Bell would survive the fast food wars on Earth. KCFoodGuys.com are big fans of TacoBell breakfast but the future TacoBell is refined and unrecognizable from the modern junk food chain. Diners can enjoy 5 star cuisine and elegance while enhancing your calm.
Ten Forward, USS Enterprise D: Ten Forward has it all. I’m serious, they literally have everything thanks to state of the art food replicators. I thought The CheeseCake Factory had a big menu but the Ten Forward menu is bigger than a phone book. Once you finally pick a dish it’s time to get drunk with uniformed personnel. With each drink the responsibility of the prime directive will fade away.
Star Wars Bantha Milk: Aunt Beru may have nagged Uncle Owen all damn day long but she loved Bantha milk. Death Vaders sister-in-law certainly wasn’t lactose intolerant. Bantha breasts gush this baby blue milky treat during the mating season and creepy Uncle Owen really enjoys milking the Bantha’s so there is always plenty of this drink for all.
Crew Galley on the Nebuchadnezzar: I like simplicity but this is ridiculous. Dine here and you’re in for a memorable experience. Each patron is served a milky, but sparse bowl of rice crispies. If you’re looking into a liquid diet or a super quick (and painful) colon cleanse or detox then you came to the right place. Neo may have been The One but he never had the sensibility to grab a couple frozen burritos for the crew.
Dining Hall of Klingon D4 Class Battle Cruiser: Bring your hearty appetite to your nearest WarBird and sample the drink and primal dishes of the Klingon Empire. All you Klingon favorites are prepared to perfection, including: Rokeg Blood Pie, Klingon Bloodwine, Pipius Claw and Bregit Lung. Heads up, lots of bravado and positioning make this place feel like a frat house.
The Fifth Element Chicken Pills: A few chicken caplets and a microwave and after 10 seconds you have a full roasted chicken with all the fixings. Never wonder what’s for dinner again. No multipass needed.
The galaxy has a lot to offer the adventurous eater. But if your hyperdrive is deactivated and your transport is stuck downtown during the convention head to the CrossRoads district. The Brick is a great dive and Grinders has something for everyone.
