One of the city's most popular Thai restaurants, King and I eatery offers a variety of Thai cooking styles, with food ranging from sweet to mild to blazing hot. The extensive menu offers something for virtually every taste. Even vegetarians will find plenty to satisfy themselves. The duck with rice comes highly recommended, but you will also want to try the Pad Thai, the national dish of Thailand, if you prefer noodle dishes. For an appetizer, try the tempura-battered shrimp, squid and crab. Both American and Asian beers are on tap to quench your thirst.
St. Louis has a reputation for fine Italian restaurants, and Marcella's epitomizes that tradition. Located in the south city neighborhood of "The Hill", this unpretentious trattoria serves wonderful food while maintaining a warm neighborhood atmosphere. Appetizers include a marvelous pizza with truffle oil and a four-cheese pizza. The innovative house salad is a delightful mix of greens topped with tomato, red onion, mozzarella and pine nuts with balsamic tomato vinaigrette.
The family-owned and operated Rearn Thai Restaurant is not one of the most popular Thai food spots in St. Louis, but locals don’t mind that the populous hasn’t caught on yet. The staff is incredibly friendly, and the prices are reasonable. Furthermore, as with many Thai restaurants, several options are available for vegetarians, pescatarians, vegans, and the health conscious. The atmosphere is relaxed, simple, and all about the food. Although the traffic at Rearn is relatively low, the patio fills up quickly during warmer months. Reservations may be in order to secure outdoor seating.
