Last month in Albuquerque, I was on the trail of the green chile cheeseburger. This month, I'm looking for vegetarian, vegan, and whole plant options while I'm on the road. They're a little trickier to find than the usual places, but not impossible. And today I landed at a wonderful vegetarian place called Any Hy Quan.

St. Paul sandwich at Old St. Louis Chop Suey

St. Paul sandwich is egg foo yong inside two slices of plain bread with mayo, lettuce, and a pickle

For something unique, visit St. Louis for a sandwich called the St. Paul. This is egg foo young (or is it egg foo yong?) inside plain bread with mayo, lettuce, and pickles. I had a couple: beef, and also the special (shrimp, beef, chicken, and pork).

Let’s face it: the St. Paul is not a good-looking sandwich. But what it lacks in appearance, it more than makes up for in taste.

Legend has it was named after the city where its creator was born.


Everyone gets their St. Paul to go.
You can find the St. Paul in many Chinese restaurants in town. I went to Old St. Louis Chop Suey where everyone was getting their sandwiches to go.
