St. Paul sandwiches were a St Louis MO thing but now (according to wikipedia) they are available nationwide.

You can get 1/2 order of St. Paul, that’s 1 slice of white bread cut in half – the fancy places cut it diagonally. There used to be a place called Uncle Louie’s Chop Suey that sold 1/4 St. Pauls…

The St. Paul sandwich though, THAT’S the shit.
It’s a variation on the food Albert King used to request in his performance rider, which was…
A whole order of chicken chow mein, and one loaf of white bread.
Chinese food and white bread is an awesome combination.
I wouldn’t be one bit surprised to find out the St. Paul sandwich originated from the cross pollination of African American culture, and the plethora of local Chinese restaurants…

  1. Is there any place in Austin, Tx, that sells a St. Paul Sandwich? Please!!!!!!!

  2. I think you might have to get in your car and drive overnight to St Lou…

  3. As a native to stl and a former resident of austin, i agree with the above statement

  4. Yeah, a St Paul is super regional, as far as I know. It’s nice to have things that are very, very local.

  5. Trying one right now, i live near st. louis, kind of nasty tasting, another St. Louis “thing” i don’t like. About the only St. Louis food i do like is gooey butter cake, which will probably kill me. St. Louis food=not good.

    • Steve I recommend that you you leave ST. Louis if you don’t like “St. Louis things”. I for one love just about everything about St. Louis. The food is just a plus!
