Midtown Sushi and Ramen

Our friend Chris had never tried ramen before and there happened to be a location we haven't tried yet: Midtown Sushi & Ramen!

Patience loves ramen and she went with the original pork version.... porkbelly, ramen noodles, egg, bamboo, mushrooms, corn and beans.

With only four ramen styles on the menu, Chris played it safe by starting off with Plain Ramen, which comes with Ramen noodles and an egg, and adding his own ingredients!

I believe there is some pork, kimchi and bean sprouts in this one...

I had heard great things about their sushi so I went with my favorite rolls to try it out, but I was blown away by the flavor of the broth after tasting the Ramen. This just may be our new favorite!

Parking is just east of the building on Fores Park Parkway, so just a heads up as you're approaching the building.

Valette

Even though this is not a St. Louis restaurant, I still want to share the beautiful pictures from Valette. I finally made it there after two years of its opening and it's the place I recommend the most in Healdsburg, CA in Sonoma County.

We started off with a lot of bubbles and charcuterie.

I had never seen anything like these Scallops en Croute!

EAT Sandwhiches

My friend Chris invited me out to EAT Sandwiches and it was quite delicious.

My tuna sandwich was large enough (only $9.95) that I ate just half of it with a small side of Pasta Salad (only $1.00)!

Here is Patience's Grilled Cheese with a side of Potato Salad. Super cheesy!

And Chris' BLT jammed packed with bacon.

Although there is a short menu, there was a daily special as well.
