Food in St. Louis
You will quickly find that the Central West End (CWE) is your go-to area for good eats and drinks, so begin your unending quest for edible satisfaction right here in our own neighborhood. I’m quite partial to the BBQ Saloon at Euclid and Laclede, which has awesome pork nachos and the delicacy of glazed alligator ribs. Have a drink at the bar, too! I also enjoy Wildflower across the street, particularly for Sunday brunch. If you walk a little farther north on Euclid, Little Saigon Cafe has some excellent Vietnamese food and very hearty portions! There are many more options in the vicinity as well, so I encourage you to explore for yourself.
Outside of the CWE, the University City Loop has lots of good places, along with your favorite hybrid Korean-Mexican joint, Seoul Taco. Then, if you go down in the Grove, be sure to check out Everest Café, which offers a 10 percent discount to medical students and has tasty and heart-healthy Nepalese and Korean cuisine. Outside of that, Washington Ave. downtown has lots of options, including Rosalita’s Cantina, a big Tex-Mex bar and restaurant. I know there is also a Ruth’s Chris downtown if you want to really go all out! I hope that that gets you started. Happy hunting!
