They have received their fair share of awards - Best Breakfast, Best Mexican, 10 Best in KC - but I'm going to add my voice to the choir in case you haven't made your way out to Tienda Casa Paloma in Overland Park. When I walked in the door Monday I was kicking myself for not making it more often, and the kicks became a little more insistent once I sat down with a big bowl of their Tortilla Soup. It's Monday's special and it beats the hell out of any other tortilla soup I've ever had. Big chunks of moist and tender chicken, really fresh-tasting stock, little bits of veggies, and a big wedge of avocado on the top; it is perfect in its simplicity, and after a big squeeze of fresh lime juice from the salsa bar, it is nothing short of a cure all. I felt better immediately after eating it, and annoyed that I hadn't been eating it every single Monday. They have daily specials that will make you feel this way, too. Save the beating on your legs and just go.
