Though you’ll hear a lot about St. Louis’s famous barbeque and toasted (classically beef) ravioli, the city is actually quite friendly to vegetarians. I’ve never had trouble finding an option that I liked at any of the restaurants I’ve been to here. There are also several vegetarian and even vegan restaurants in town. I really enjoy Lulu’s Local Eatery (in the Grove) and Gokul (by the Loop). On campus, I recommend the food truck K-Bop and Kaldi’s, which is all-vegetarian. The Kaldi’s black bean and sweet potato burrito has gotten me through many a long day of class! Hit me up if you’re looking for recommendations on places to try out.
