Lunch & Dinner
Check out the earthy, plant-filled Super Seoul Cafe

What St. Louis is known for, however, is its plethora of street food. Don’t miss the succulent braised pork on rice (B50-70) from the long-established Khao Ka Moo Jorsor 100
(St. Louis Soi 3, 02-211-3553) or the generous servings of braised duck (B260) doled out at Boon Eak Restaurant

(St. Louis Soi 3, 02-212-2099). For something sweet yet refreshing, try the iced dessert, chendol, at Lot Chong Singapore Pichit
(St. Louis Soi 3, 089-588-8707).
St. Louis might not be home to the most poppin’ nightlife scene, but hidden above Super Seoul Cafe, the hip, weekends-only modern Korean joint Wine Hundreds
(50 Sathorn Soi 11, 081-881-7767) will cure your boozy cravings with a Tanqueray gin and tonic (B285) or a shot of grapefruit soju (B55). If you feel like a late-night snack, try their cheese platter (B375)—a mix of truffle gouda, brie, smoked cheese, crackers, jam and almonds. The buzzing bars of Sathorn 10-12
are a quick ride away.
Though it’s no front-door service, Surasak BTS Station is less than a 10-minute stroll from St. Louis.
