Saint Louis



Saint Louis, Missouri

In 1804, Lewis and Clark began their great journey west from a then mostly French-inhabited city, St. Louis. Today, the city that launched the Corps of Discovery is known as the “Gateway to the West.” In addition to being a big brewery town, St. Louis boasts a couple unique takes on ethnic cuisine: the deep-fried ravioli and the St. Paul sandwich. Don’t be fooled by the name, which would seem to imply a Minnesota connection, the St. Paul is all St. Louis. Found at local Chinese restaurants, it consists of deep-fried egg foo young served on white bread topped with pickles, mayo, lettuce, and tomato. Traditional French food is offered up at Café de France near the Old Cathedral, built by the French in the 1700s. Recent immigration includes Bosnians, who are lending a new flavor to an ethnic culinary scene long dominated by Germans, Italians and French. These days, Bosnian restaurants serve up specialties like palacinke, crepe-like creations served with chocolate sauce and whipped cream.
