Three Kings Public House

I had been wanting to try Three Kings Public House after hearing about their highly rated veggie burger from STLVegGirl, aka Caryn Dugan, since it’s made of “Match meat”, made up of soy protein and black beans, to make it almost a full substitute. Not only does it come with my favorite veggies, avocado, lettuce and tomato, but I got to throw some sautéed mushrooms on top! What’s even better is that they also offer a pretzel bun or a gluten free bread…talk about choices!

While I have heard about them mostly for their burgers, especially those weighing in at half a pound, I was really surprised to find a number of Cajun items on the menu like the Cajun Pasta and a Shrimp Po’ Boy sandwich. Patience had a lot of trouble deciding what to order with so many choices and finally selected the Cajun sliders, which were like baby shrimp po’ boys, since you can’t get that just anywhere. (It was also a good alternative to a half pounder for those who have smaller appetites!)

We also split a Middle Eastern Sampler to mix up our taste buds even more. The sampler came with Red Pepper Hummus, Roasted Head of Garlic, Grilled Eggplant Relish, tzatziki, Dolmas & grilled flatbread. Since my veggie burger was covered in a chipotle mayo, I actually used the tzatziki sauce to help cool down my bites of the burger, so that worked out very well.

There was even the long list of beers on tap, several local craft breweries represented as well, which made it difficult to decide.

We’re definitely going to have to make a few more trips because there are just too many items to try! If nothing else, there is something for everyone here.
