A Guide To Very Specific Midwestern Sandwiches

I didn't know that a Brain Sandwich was a thing in St. Louis. Anyone had the one they mention?

Not the one they mentioned. But had brain sandwich, cooked by my relatives. German descent, rural. I remember it being coated in cracker crumbs and fried. I can't recollect it enough to describe the taste, but recall it being unique- Did Not "taste like chicken."

For years I thought it was a dish called brains, and never knew it was actual hog brains.

My grandma made brains. Czech/Slovak descent. Pan fried, looked a lot like scrambled eggs. She would always seek out the fried brain sandwich booth at local fairs & festivals. The one I remember was at Carondelet Park. Molly said she remembered it too and thought there were still booths at South City events.

I know what I'm eating next time I'm in St Loius. This is awesome, I love little bits of city history through food.

I didn't even realize until this morning that World's Fair Donuts have been closed for about a month now. I noticed it on my way to work since I had planned on stopping in to pick up some donuts for a meeting this morning so when I got to the office I looked it up and apparently the wife tripped over a fan back on July 15 and broker her pelvis and hip sockets. The article was from August 6 on STLToday and she said at that time they would be back open as soon as she was able to get around with a walker. She misses the shop and her regulars. I hope she recovers soon.

Their son used to help with that place years ago. I guess he moved on. Anyway with a broken hip I wouldn’t be surprised if she doesn’t make it back.

That's what I'm thinking too.

Grace Meat + Three is expanding with a late night spot providing window service from their current building soon. It will be called Grace Chicken + Fish. I'm looking forward to it. They'll be open from 11pm - 3am on the weekends to start and you'll just order from a walk up window along Tower Grove Ave and then they'll have something like 35-40 seats on the sidewalk/patio there for those who want to eat together before everybody heads off in their own direction home.
