STL CRAVINGS: WHEN THE FLIGHT LANDS AT LAMBERT

When it comes to St. Louis foods what are some things that first come to mind?  Maybe Imo’s Pizza, Chinese food (St. Paul sandwich if you want to be exact), White Castles, Gooey Butter Cake, and Vess soda.  This list could go on and on.  I have spent the majority of my life in St. Louis so the food holds a special place in my heart, and my craving gets real as soon the plane touches down at Lambert.  I decided to share with you all some of my must have foods outside the typically norms for most St. Louisans when I visit home.

 

GOODY GOODY 

So I think it is time for a moment of honesty with you all because we are fam!  I schedule early flights not so I can spend more time with family, but so I can catch Goody Goody before they close at 2pm.  This restaurant has been around since 1948 and it’s the first stop I make once getting to St. Louis.  Each time I go I always see a familiar face, and the consistency of the food has NEVER changed.

STL Edition: The Wine Tap

Back again with a St. Louis addition for yall.  Okay so technically this memorable establishment is located in Downtown Belleville but worth the quick drive if you live in St. Louis. With a large selection of wines, delicious flat-breads, and a retractable roof in their garden this establishment has become a quick favorite when I visit home.

STL Edition: Contrary Cupcakes

After months of drooling over IG pics from Contrary Cupcakes I decided to drop in while visiting St. Louis for the holidays.  I consider myself a slight cupcake connoisseur if you have referenced my previous post.  This mini cupcakery opened February 2016 in the South Hampton neighborhood of St.Louis, and has generated a good buzz due to it’s large following prior to having their own storefront.  One thing that makes them so successful is their nontraditional combinations and flavors such as Lemonade, Pancakes & Bacon, and my personal favorite Mom’s Gooey Butter Cake.  The Lemonade cupcake reminded me of almost a lemon Italian ice all while channeling my inner Yoncé.  The gooey butter cupcake was such a SO ST. LOUIS item I had to have it and loved every minute.  Of course if you are not willing to take a walk on the wild side you can always try a traditional cupcake such as Vanilla or Chocolate Birthday.  They are open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am – 6pm or until they are sold out.  They not only specialize in mini cupcakes but also full size cakes as well.  Get out and support the ONLY mini cupcakery in St. Louis and a family owned business as well.
