Tuesday morning not only signaled the beginning of the fall semester but also the introduction of a frozen yogurt machine to Whispers Cafe. The addition of this succulent snack is one that students already love.
[rating stars=4.5] Students with dietary restrictions will be glad to know that Pi Pizza offers a variety of options that are as delicious as they are safe and healthy. The restaurant, whose closest location is at 6144 Delmar Boulevard, has four locations in the St. Louis area. However, its multiple locations don’t deprive it of its independent and local feeling.
If your new semester resolution is to try out more great St. Louis restaurants, you don’t need to look any further than the Delmar Loop’s Aug. 1 addition, Corner 17. Nestled between Starbucks and Qdoba, Corner 17 offers up a fresh new selection of Chinese fare, focusing on staples like noodle dishes, barbecued skewers and fresh tea drinks.
St. Louis means Budweiser products, Cardinals baseball, the Arch, the Delmar Loop, Nelly, crime and the question, “Where did you go to high school?” And the food— oh, the food: toasted ravioli, St. Louis-style pizza with the notorious Provel cheese, slingers, gooey butter cake.
“We have to kick it in full gear here,” Jenna Seibert urged. “I came here to win.” Silver industrial stand mixers blended runny milk into a thicker mixture, creating a sticky white batter. Lids flew off canisters, and ingredients were carefully measured. A huge batch of bacon crackled in a silver skillet.
I admit that in the six months I’ve been at Wash. U., I have remained relatively ensconced inside the Bear bubble, only leaving campus for a few Cardinals games and late-night apple fritter runs to John’s Donuts.
When I heard that the new Dynasty Hibachi Buffet now open one storefront down from the AMC Esquire had figured out a way to do all-you-can eat sushi, hibachi and Chinese food for about the same cost as a Domino’s pizza, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical.
As a self-proclaimed ‘fraidy cat, I’m not sure what I was thinking when I agreed to spend a night in a haunted mansion with friends. I’m the girl who was afraid to be in a room alone after watching “The Others” and the Lemp Mansion in downtown St. Louis is rumored to contain much more than the spirit family of Nicole Kidman and company.
Picture the last time you spent your entire day shopping at the St. Louis Galleria. You’re tired. You’ve bought way more clothing than you should have (and will probably end up returning half of it). Most of all, though, you are hungry. Charley’s, Panda Express, Subway and California Pizza Kitchen are all around, enticing you with the scent of fried food.
Gooey butter cake looks a bit like a mistake. It is not quite a cake, not quite a pie and not quite a dessert bar. And in fact, legend has it that this quintessential St. Louis dessert originated from a baker’s accident.
