You can't see the butter in the photo I took. Believe me, though, it's there, a pool of melted gold slicking each soft bite of baked pretzel with a hint of sweetness. Swirl the pretzel in the jalapeño cheese dip (or maybe that's "cheese" dip -- I don't know whether that cheese is real and, frankly, I don't care), and the pretzels now have a double layer of unctuous fat and a mildly spicy kick.

Is there a more over-the-top bar snack in St. Louis? Without doubt. Is there a better bar snack? I'm still looking.

I'm counting down -- in no particular order -- 100 of my favorite dishes in St. Louis. Some are well-known, others obscure. Some are expensive, others dirt cheap. All of them, I guarantee, are delicious. Please do not hesitate to share your own favorites via the comments thread.
