Manhattan – Harry’s

Harry’s , located on Poyntz Avenue in Manhattan, is one of those places I always wanted to visit when I was a college student but I never the the opportunity (money).  It’s certainly not the kind of place you would eat at on a regular basis, however for a special occasion, this place can’t be beat.

In fact, it is the number one rated restaurant in Manhattan, according to Trip Advisor.  The white tablecloth restaurant is located on the ground floor of the old Wareham Opera House.  It is a beautiful example of early twentieth century architecture. My service at Harry’s was excellent, and my meal, pork roundelay (seafood stuffed pork loin), was also beautiful. It was almost too pretty to eat;

Although they take reservations, I had no trouble getting seated on a Tuesday evening without one. My wife and I  cannot wait to try more pork offerings from Harry’s on our next dinner date!

Until next time,

Manhattan – Call Hall Dairy Bar

If you have ever enjoyed an ice cream cone from the Call Hall Dairy Bar located on the campus of Kansas State University, than you already know about the best place in Kansas to get ice cream. They have many wonderful selections including purple pride, 150 (celebrating the birthday of K-State), vanilla, chunky vanilla, chocolate and strawberry.

Did you know that the Call Hall Dairy Bar is also one of the best places in Kansas to get pork? They have cooler after cooler of “Wildcat Brand” frozen meats including all your traditional pork favorites of ribs, bacon, pork burger, chops and roast. These delicious pork products are processed right on campus by college of agriculture students.

They also carry a lot of specialty items like sausages, por-con (pork and bacon) burger, pig’s feet and other hard to find items. Some of my personal Call Hall pork favorites include German bologna and pepperoni snack sticks. Next time you are in Manhattan for a game or just stopping in for an ice cream cone, be sure to pack your cooler and go home with a generous supply of pork. Not only will you support Kansas State University, but your stomach will thank you too!
