One of my favorite things about moving to a new city has been trying new restaurants and exploring the new food scene! Here are some of my favorite St. Louis restaurants!



This Central West End Italian spot is on the top of the list for a reason. From the homemade pizza and pasta to the delicious salads and gelato, Edera is not a place to miss out on. It also has an adorable patio in the back during warmer months. While on the more expensive side, Edera is simply delicious and I highly recommend it!


Drunken Fish

The Drunken Fish is one of the more popular restaurants in St. Louis and probably the most popular sushi place. But sushi is not the only thing you can enjoy here! There is such a wide variety from lettuce wraps to poke bowls and everything is delicious!


Mission Taco

I personally think that Mission Taco has some of the best tacos I’ve ever had. I love the Baja fish tacos and the corn fritters appetizer. Mission Taco is also very close to campus, which makes it a very appealing option!


Salt and Smoke

I’m not a huge barbeque person, but I absolutely love Salt and Smoke. It is truly delicious and with its huge menu, you can always try something new! I love the pulled pork sandwich and hush puppies, but you can’t go wrong here!


Seoul Taco

I know a lot of people do not like Seoul Taco, but it is one of my favorite places in St. Louis! I absolutely love the tofu tacos (I’m not a vegetarian, but I think their tofu is amazing!) and waffle fries. While a little spicy, Seoul Taco is so unique and very delicious!


Sauce on the Side

While a bit more of a hike from campus, Sauce on the Side is another great spot if you are looking to try something different. Their calzones are very rich but super delicious, and there truly is something for everyone here!


Fork and Stix

I love Thai food, so I started looking for a good Thai place as soon as I came to St. Louis! Fork and Stix is on the loop and has amazing Thai food! I love the Pad See Ew from here and all of the appetizers are amazing as well. Definitely give this place a try!
