The ABC Cafe (10001 W. 87th St.) in Overland Park is one of those places that keeps popping up in conversation. And as Charles Ferruzza discovered in this week's review, that's because the spot is serving authentic Cantonese cuisine until midnight, meaning that it pulls in a wide swath of the community over its extended dinner service. Ferruzza and a dining companion both also learned why the restaurant's beef tendon should be part of your order list:

She expertly wielded a set of black chopsticks and plucked up delicate, paper-thin slices of translucent amber beef tendon. I used a fork, stabbing the bits of chilled tendon with increasing delight as I found that the rubbery-looking connective tissue wasn't chewy at all but supple. Each bite added to the dish's slowly accumulating fire.
