Food for Thought 5.10.12

By: Christy Hartin

Out of dozens of surprise inspections it's all good news in this week's Food for Thought.

 KCBD NewsChannel 11's Christy Hartin dishes out the top performers. From hidden treasures to sweet treats, we have six stop on this platter of perfection.

We start this list of top performers where many people are now starting their day.The Bistro at 9816 slide may be new to the Hub City but they're gaining fans fast.

"We do soups, salads and sandwiches. We also have a pastry chef who comes in every morning and cooks fresh pastries," owner L.P. Anderson says they're not just for the early crowd; they're open late as well.

He says being a top performer is a constant round-the-clock effort, "Every single day we go through every single box in the vault. It's constant training and a complete eye for detail."

Next we head to El Gallito at 914 E. 34th. This repeat top performer once again serves up a perfect score. As does Polly's Place at 1924 Ave. A. This breakfast, lunch stop has perfected the recipe for perfection.

This Best of the West winner knows how to do more than just made great food. Taco Villa at 8212 Indiana knows how to keep their kitchen clean.

Finally if you are still looking for something special for mom this weekend - here are two tasty ideas: Simply Decadent Bakery at 5905 82nd and Sweet Tooth Donuts at 1726 Parkway Dr. both serve up the sweet taste of perfection.
