Menu at Rice & Mix is Up, KFC coming soon: The menu at Rice and Mix, a new Korean restaurant from the Giwa people on 1207 walnut, is up and they are looking for staff. Maybe an opening is around the corner? Like much of the menu, once you get your bibimbop in a stone pot it goes over the ML $10 limit, and what good is it not in a stone pot. But is that Korean fried chicken coming soon, I see?

Prostitute Yourself for a Valentine’s Burrito: This promotional deal amuses me, so I will share it. On Valentine's Day (that is this Tuesday gentlemen, don't forget), you can get 2 meals for the price of one at Qdoba by kissing anyone around you. Let the sexual assault upon lonely, bean seeking folks commence!

Pure Fare Truck Debuting Right Now in UCity: UCity folks, Pure Fare's healthy food truck is debuting today at 40th and Locust. Anyone willing to give first reports?

1/2 off Empanadas and Gluten Free Arepas: Today's Living Social gets you $30 worth of Venezuelan food for $15, at Sazon, a place I really enjoyed lunching at.
