My Top 10 "Only In St. Louis" Food Experiences

We're having a little contest on SlowTrav. Everyone is being encouraged to put together a list of 10 things to do; costing no more than $20.00 per person; and no further than 30 miles by car from their own front door. The prize is a $40.00 value. Thus the contest name: 10, 20, 30, 40 Contest.

As a rather obnoxious "cheerleader" for the St. Louis area, I knew there was absolutely no way I could limit myself to only 10 things. Heck, I'll have a hard enough time limiting myself to 10 categories. But, I've managed to come up with just one subject and posted an entry in the designated thread on the SlowTalk message board, choosing a subject that everyone should address when visiting another city -- how to avoid chain fast food stores, and where to find tasty, but cheap food that is unique to the city.

After the contest is over, I'm going to indulge my need to boast about St. Louis by blogging my "Top Tens" of other things about my city. For example: 10 Things to do with Kids, 10 Great Spectator Sports; 10 "Bet-You-Never-Know" Historical Sites, etc, etc.

I'll post all these lists here in my blog category: Visiting St. Louis Like a Local.

But, in the meantime, please head over to the SlowTrav.com message board, SlowTalk.com. Check out the contest thread. And how about posting a list of your own?

Deborah, I saw this on Slowtrav and loved your list. I'm giving it to Mike who often goes to St. Louis on business. One of these days i'm seriously going to tag along (just for the food). Thanks.

Deborah, Thank you for being such a great cheerleader for St. Louis! I sure enjoyed my too-brief stay there in August. Must return to try a few more places from your foodie Top 10! I'm especially eager to go to Global Foods ... what a wonderful concept.


Good job on your Top 10 list!

You ARE a great cheerleader for St. Louis!
