Twin Oak Wood Fired Fare.
We stayed in the hotel next to this place & this restaurant was our fav part of our stay! We originally were going to grab food to go, but we got to talking with the bartender and ended up staying a while. He was awesome enough to give us the rundown on the city of St Louis & wrote us up a list of his fav neighborhoods we should check out.
All this was before our food came. When it showed up, we dug right in and fell madly in love! The meat was smoked perfectly and as non-natives, we were blown away. I got the special: smoked chicken wings and burnt brisket mac & Cheese. Everything about it was perfect. It tasted smoky and spicy without being overwhelming. I opted for buffalo and honey chipotle, both were good, but I found myself eating the wings without sauce. They were just that good. The brisket offered a great contrast to the mac & cheese. I tasted a hint of bbq in there too. It was so different than anything I thought I would like, but I loved how the flavors danced together in my mouth. My boyfriend ate the brisket sandwich and he could not stop raving about it. He liked it so much, he offered to share with me. Which rarely happens, I usually have to steal his food when he’s not looking, lol.
If wonderfully smoked meat is the norm here, then we’re about to have an even better experience moving to St Louis than we anticipated, lol! I give the food and the Service an A+. Can’t wait to go back. Wait, actually we did, the next night. Please don’t judge…
