You might be the straightest Glenn Beck fan in St. Louis County with zero interest in the fabulous life, but you'd still be an idiot to write off Absolutli Goosed. This award-winning gay and lesbian lounge has one of the most expansive martini menus in the city, with names like Pussy Galore, Banana Hammock and Dixie Normous, as well as a laundry list of sips that won't make your grandma blush. Not sure what to order? Belly up to the smooth sea-green bar and ask for a recommendation. The obliging barkeep might even treat you to an off-menu drink like the Basil Smash: grapefruit vodka, lemon, simple syrup and muddled basil.
Apop Records is an audiophile's wet dream. Upstairs, you'll find the most obscure vinyl, CDs, cassettes, zines, mags, pulp books and VHS tapes around. In the evenings, this esoteric record shop often plays host to live acts from out of town including experimental, noise, punk, acerbic rock and everything in between. The unearthly sounds heard therein can either delight or terrify, and oftentimes, both at once.
Baida dishes traditional Moroccan cuisine from its South Grand storefront. Featuring family recipes, owners Abder and Assia Meskine give patrons an authentic taste of their homeland through classic dishes. The menu features a variety of couscous preparations such a vegetable, chicken, lamb or beef, which are enlivened with a side of broth. Baida also serves several different tajine dishes, all presented in the traditional clay cooking vessel. Appetizers, such as loubia, a spiced white bean stew, and bastilla, a sweet and savory chicken pie, serve as delicious starters to the meal. However, the m’lwee steals the show. This rich meat pie is nothing short of spectacular -- layers of flaky phyllo dough wrapped around the most succulent kefta, or ground beef, one could imagine. The kefta is seasoned with garlic, cumin and coriander and is slow cooked so that the spices infuse the meat’s juices. This rich, meaty mixture is encased in the buttery phyllo pouch, which is pan fried to give it a subtle nuttiness. One could end the meal satisfied here, but the briwat, a pastry of almond and honey similar to baklava, caps off the meal with a tasty sweet touch. Check it out for lunch or dinner for a taste of Casablanca.
You might visit this charming South Grand spot for banh mi - it's in the name, after all - delicious sandwiches with thinly sliced meat, pickled vegetables and sometimes pté on a crusty baguette. Or you might decide to test the neon sign in the window that proclaims the best spring rolls in St. Louis. These, too, won't disappoint. Or you might just settle for a simple bowl of pho, redolent of cilantro and basil, or paper-thin char-grilled pork over rice sauced with nuoc cham that hits the perfect spot between sweet and spicy. Whatever you choose, husband-and-wife owners Thomas and Lynne Truong will make sure you leave their restaurant full and happy.
