restaurants

There are only 2 weeks left until the very end of this semester. After this is a 1-month break for all of us. Many of us may have cool travelling plans or just go home (if you are not from St. Louis) for Christmas. And of course, many of us would stay in St. Louis and enjoy the Midwest cold.

Food is of course an inevitable part of holidays. Holidays are to gain weight. But not necessarily if you have good AND healthy food – most famous Asian dishes are like that. Though Yelp is pretty helpful, the reviews are not always accurate. Now, I, as an Asian food lover that has tried many Asian restaurants since I first cam to St. Louis, have 3 recommendations to make your cold winter warmer.

  1. Hongkong Dimsum: WeiHong seafood restaurant                                                                                                                 Where: 7740 Olive Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63130                                                                                                                         Why: Though are Not high-rated compared to Lulu and Wonton King, this place is my personal favorite. The Dimsum is served from 12-3pm and are all newly cooked. The place looked sketchy and old but it makes this restaurant look more mysterious. The Dimsum is the best compared to other places since its fillings are tastier. The service is also quite good during non-rush hours.
  2. Pad Thai: Pad Thai                                                                                                                                                                         Where: 12676 Lamplighter Square, Saint Louis, MO 63128                                                                                                  Why: I I I have to agree with Yelp on this one. I had the best.Pad.Thai.ever. There are lots of meats and beansprouts compared to the usually large portion of noodle. It is not too sweet like how they often make it in Thai restaurants in America. This restaurant gives a more authentic taste of Thailand and authentic is always best.
  3. Vietnam’s Bun Bo Hue: Truc Lam                                                                                                                                              Where: 3737 Gravois Ave, Saint Louis, MO 63116                                                                                                                  Why: You have the fullest, tastiest, hottest Bun Bo Hue here. Though Pho are generally more well-known as the signature Vietnamese food, Bun Bo Hue has been rising in popularity. I have eaten this dish at more than 5 Vietnamese restaurants including the famous ones, but this one here in Truc Lam got my heart. The portion is relatively bigger and there are more things to eat inside the bowl, compared to other places. Their service is fast, too. This place is a must if you want to try Vietnamese food.

Hope this list saved you some time choosing where to eat during your winter break!

Although I have been quite a few times before, I thought I would let you all know of an amazing restaurant that I attended this past weekend. Crushed Red, located at 8007 Maryland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63105, is an “urban bake and chop shop” that serves cuisine that is fresh and delicious. The food is unique and satisfying and the price is even better. Almost of the items on the menu are under $10, which is great for college kids on a budget looking for a nice, fresh meal.

As per the main website page of Crushed Red:

“We believe food that’s served quickly should be great food, and great food should be good for our planet. We also believe that it takes experience and true artisan know-how to make this happen. Our chopped-to-order salads and hand stretched pizzas are prepared to exacting standards by people who have a deep understanding of food and care about what they serve. In addition to our commitment to quality, we’ve designed our restaurants to produce very little waste: because care about our guests, and the impact we have on our community and the world around us.”

Not only is the food they provide outstanding, but the atmosphere and ambiance of the entire restaurant is warm and welcoming. They also have soups to fill you up on these chilly fall nights. Whether enjoying a freshly chopped salad, or savoring a delicious slice of pizza, the food at Crushed Red is sure to satisfy your stomach and your wallet. Another also benefit of ordering from Crushed Red is that you can order it online so you just have to drive down and pick it up with no wait!

Crushed Red is also a part of the Green Dining Alliance as their website describes

“Crushed Red is part of the Green Dining Alliance. ‘Exceed industry norms for sustainable restaurant management & operations.’

We are proud that our restaurants produce zero waste and are 100% sustainable.

This has been very important to us from the beginning and we feel it’s also very important to our guests.”

Next time you’re looking for somewhere new for lunch, head on over to

Crushed Red at 8007 Maryland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63105,

or any of their other Saint Louis locations.

STL Restaurants

in In Saint Louis

On Friday, I was treated to a Valentine’s Dinner at Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas on The Hill (if you are not familiar with “The Hill,” it is the name for the Italian neighborhood in St. Louis).  The food was delicious, and the atmosphere was upscale without being overly priced.  I thought I would blog and tell you about my experience there, but I instead, I would love to talk about several St. Louis restaurants that you might want to try.

Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas:

http://www.guidosstl.com/

As I mentioned above, I visited this Italian and Spanish restaurant on Friday.  As per their heritage, they serve both Italian and Spanish entrees, and have a list of tapas you can order.  Other menu items include appetizers, desserts and drinks.  There were classic dishes I’ve heard of before, as well as dishes with Spanish influence that you wouldn’t find at most Italian restaurants.  On this trip, I stuck with the classics and ordered fettuccini alfredo; my boyfriend ordered cannelloni, pasta tubes stuffed with meat and covered in marinara sauce and cheese.   The food was creamy, flavorful, and steeped in garlic.  My portion was large, although my boyfriend’s was smaller.  We also ordered cheese garlic bread as an appetizer, which came in a good-sized portion.  But beware!  The cheese on the garlic bread is provel, that St. Louis engineered cheese that looks like plastic.  But if you’re a fan, go for it.

Fitz’s:

http://www.fitzsrootbeer.com/

Fitz’s is a restaurant located in the Delmar Loop that is famous for its root beer, which you can purchase bottled at many St. Louis locations.  This restaurant serves American-style food such as burgers, sandwiches and chicken strips.  I wouldn’t say that American food is my favorite, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is worth the visit.  The inside is full of exposed brick and reminds me of an old factory…like a root beer brewery, perhaps?  Jokes aside, if you are a fan of soda (or pop) you should visit Fitz’s and give their root beer a try.

City Coffeehouse and Creperie:

http://www.citycoffeeandcreperie.com/

If you love breakfast food, and if you can manage a little wait time, you should give this creperie a try!  Crepes, like thin pancakes wrapped around a filling, come in both savory and sweet types at this restaurant, located in downtown Clayton.  I went on a Saturday morning, and although the restaurant was packed, the line moved quickly.  I ordered the “St. Louis” crepe, which is a savory crepe filled with grilled chicken, artichokes, spinach and a parmesan cheese filling.   I also tried a fruit and cream filled crepe—both were delicious.  Like the other two restaurants I’ve mentioned, the City Coffeehouse and Creperie is not a chain restaurant, so you can only find it in St. Louis!

Strange Donuts:

http://strangedonuts.tumblr.com/

Located in downtown Maplewood (only a few minutes from Fontbonne!), Strange Donuts is a small donut bakery selling imaginative donut creations beyond your typical glazed or cake selections.  Their regular menu of original donuts and creations is supplemented by a special “stranger” donut that changes every so often.  Some of their strange concoctions have been a pizza donut, a chicken and waffles donut, and a maple bacon donut (which I have heard was actually delicious).  Strange Donuts is open every morning from 6:00am-2:00pm and on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays they reopen from 9:00pm to midnight for the late snacking crowd.

I was going to continue with some other restaurants that serve more foreign cuisine, but, as my blog is already running long, I think I’ll save those for next week. Have a happy Monday! Try something new!

Hippie Food

Have I mentioned my favorite restaurant ever in the whole entire world is right here in St. Louis? I haven’t? Well, consider it mentioned. PuraVegan is indeed my favorite restaurant ever, and if you know me at all you won’t be surprised that they serve mostly raw, 100% vegan, über-healthy food. But before you stop […]

Loving Life in the Lou

by Alumni Posts March 5, 2012

Hi out there, It’s been kind of a crazy week in the graduate SLP program. But then again, so what else is new? With spring break right around the corner, my to-do list has grown to (literally) two pages in length. Bleh. But it’s so worth it! I don’t want to do a lick of […]
