Simply Thai (2470 N. Highway 67, Florissant; 314-921-2179)

Simply Thai is exactly what the name suggests -- straightforward Thai dishes that are absolutely delicious. Standouts include the rich, fiery green curry -- though you'll want to specify your spice level. Tom yum and tom kha soups are perfect for rainy days too -- or try the gang jued tofu, a clear broth with tofu, ground meat, cilantro and scallions. If you're looking for one, must-try dish, go with the massaman curry. Coconut milk serves as the base with a mix of spices and chilies. Choose from pork, beef, chicken, duck or seafood (or go vegetarian). Cashews provide for a stratifying crunchy finish.

Thai Pizza (608 Eastgate Avenue, University City; 314-862-4429)

Recently renovated, this staple of the Delmar Loop takes pizza in an entirely different direction, which for the adventurous eaters is always a good thing. The pies are either a thick, doughy crust or a matzo-thin one, and come with a range of unique toppings, including chicken satay, hoisin sauce, peanut sauce, green onions and assorted other Thai staples. To go with your pizza, try the noodle bowls (some with curious ingredients like barbecued ribs) or the traditional pad thai. Bonus: you can try your favorite combo without breaking the bank.
