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…
