A Visit to St. Louis July 24 2015
I’ve been in St. Louis, Missouri visiting my family this week. I would say St. Louis is most famous for the Gateway Arch and the Cardinals Baseball Team. By now you should know, when I travel I typically look for the food highlights in the city I am visiting. St. Louis does have a few food creations to call their own and I try to enjoy them every time I visit.
Frozen Custard – A visit home isn’t complete without a stop at Ted Drewes Frozen Custard. Ted Drewes started selling Frozen Custard 80 years ago but it wasn’t until 1959 that the concrete was invented. The concrete is a shake with mix-ins, similar to a blizzard. It is so thick you can turn it upside down! Ted Drewes frozen custard was definitely an inspiration for Danny Meyer’s Shake Shack.
Toasted Ravioli – Basically a meat or cheese ravioli that has been breaded and then baked or fried. You absolutely cannot go wrong with toasted ravioli. With a crispy outside and warm filling, dip it in marinara sauce and you’re all set.
Barbecue – St. Louis Style Barbecue involves direct grilling and a large volume of their signature sweet, sticky tomato-based sauce. Typically used on spare ribs but delicious on most other meat products.
Even with all of these delicious options, I still find myself staying in for my mother’s home cooking. In the summer, this includes a lot of tomatoes from her plants outside. I’m enjoying all of the fresh produce and time with my family.
