Because it has so many unique foods, I always though St. Louis would be a good candidate for a Roadfood eating tour. Imagine a weekend of eating toasted ravioli, gooey butter cakes, slingers and St. Paul sandwiches. Then again, I may be trying to justify another trip to Ted Drewes![:p]
St. Louis would be fun. Because we go so often, we have started skipping some of the standards, like toasted ravioli and gooey butter cake. We couldn’t skip Ted Drewe’s this weekend. It would be fun to be with a group of folks who have never had a St. Paul or real St. Louis toasted ravioli. I would get excited by those things all over again. Something else that is sort of unique to St. Louis is roasted meat sandwiches. We’ve had beef, pork and lamb sandwiches at various places in St. Louis and have never had them anywhere else that taste quite like those sandwiches. I would put Iron Barley on the list for sure, just for the pork sandwiches. I had a roast leg of lamb sandwich Friday at Schlafly’s Taproom that was very good.
