I've never been a fan of STL because well...I didn't think the food tasted that good and it looked run down.

That was then and this is now.

Ever since I tried Buster's sea cove at the CNE last year I couldn't get them out of my mind. I went down to STL last year and wanted to get something but the prices were really high IMO. Their lobster sammie was brutal at $11 for something the size of a hotdog.

Anyways...I had to come down here today and maybe it's the hype but people say the meat is the freshest down here. Is that true? Is it better to come here than Sanagaan's or The healthy butcher?

Got steak here a long time ago and it was just ok, nothing special.

Can people that routinely come here give me some advice?

I got some truffles from some place downstairs (right when you go downstairs, it's a bakery they sell cookies and cakes. $2.50 for a medioore truffle was....interesting....

Please don't think I am complaining about this place. I really want to like STL but I don't know what's good. Is Carousel bakery the absolute best? Do they make everythign onsite? I had one of Paddington's peameal sandwiches before and I found it really salty. Is it always that salty?

If anyone has any suggestions on meat, or even seafood or buster's please let me know. I tried the Shrimp Po boy at Buster's Sea cove today and it was delicious.
