KREIS’ RESTAURANT (PRIME RIB) – ST. LOUIS, MO

I really love this place! I am glad my boss always take me here whenever I am in town. Check out here for my previous visit KREIS’

Amazing Prime Ribs

Nice bread and biscuits were served complimentary. I like bread, but tried not to eat too much.

SCAPE AMERICAN BISTRO – ST. LOUIS, MO

Came here for brunch on a beautiful Saturday. Decor was a bit mix of rustic and bold color, service was good. We didn’t have a reservation, but no wait either.

I original came here wanted to the Wimbledon French Toast, which is like a cornflakes crusted brioche with creme fraiche and strawberries … but they no longer serve that. Disappointed me.

They gave use couple complimentary donuts – it was nice touch, but they were served cold.

Classic Benedict – thick cut Canadian Bacon, arugula, tomato, perfect poached eggs, hollandaise sauce. Love the thick cut fries too!

Strawberry Crepe – it was huge! fresh strawberries, nutella and tons of house-made whipped cream. We finished the whole thing.

It was a very nice brunch, I wish they bring back the Wimbledon French Toast.

CHEESECAKE FACTORY – ST. LOUIS, MO

Happy New Year! A brand new year, hopefully I will have more time and update more often.

Traveled to St Louis for work couple months ago … coworker decided to eat Cheesecake factory. It was fully packed. We wait about 15 minutes. First thing walked into the place is to check out the cheesecake display … lots of variety!

Ordered one of my favorite appetizer from here – Avocado Rolls

Also had some Garlic Shrimp Pasta – taste okay, normal pasta.

Ended our dinner with a famous cheesecake – I forgot what I had … but it was very rich.

PHO GRAND – ST. LOUIS, MO

Authentic and delicious Vietnamese food in South Grand area, probably the best Pho in St. Louis. This place is always busy, you have to take some time find street parking too.

Vietnamese Spring Roll (Goi Cuon) and Fried Tofu Cubes – fresh herbs, fresh ingredients, must get Spring Rolls. Tofu were crispy and hot.

DRUNKEN FISH – ST. LOUIS, MO

Sushi here is really medi-core, but its about the only sushi place that opens late on weekends. So not many choices here.

There was 3 of us, we ordered quite a few items. The rolls were smaller than the other places I’ve tried, fish were not the best.
