Craving something flavorful? Head on down to Tacos La Jefa! Located inside Urban Eats, a food hall in Meramec, this weekend-only pop-up shop is one of three restaurants situated inside one building. This eatery serves Mexican cuisine such as burritos, quesadillas and tacos. The latter of the three is served with tangy sauce that perfectly complements the mild main course. The menu’s stand-out dish is the quesabirria, which is stuffed with tender meat and impeccable cheese pulls.

 

Cate Zone
8148 Olive Blvd, University City, MO 63130

Cate Zone is a sit-down cafe located in University City that specializes in Northeast Chinese cuisine. Upon entering the building, customers may notice that the space is particularly confined. However, the restaurant’s small scale only adds to its cozy atmosphere. Equipped with a friendly staff, they bring their authentic cuisine right to the table. Here, Chinese culinary traditions come to life. The menu offers a variety of food ranging from meats to vegetables. The soft tofu stands out in particular, which is smooth in consistency and has just the right amount of spice. Cate Zone is also famous for its Peking Duck, General Tso’s Chicken and savory Shrimp Mein.
