Tai-ke, fabulous place for Chinese food in St. Louis!

What is it about Sichuan pepper numbing sauce that has me remember the meal for days? I never really understood 3 cups chicken before. Pork belly buns with cilantro? Yes please! Tai Ke is really good. It is Taiwanese street food, apparently, but didn’t really remind me of what I ate in the night markets in Taipei, but we were focused on trying stinky tofu. It has truly spicy dishes, and that wonderful Mala sauce. We will certainly be going back. It is a block off Olive, just South on McKnight. Yea!

By the way, this is a simple place without a liquor license. Just get the Mala sauce and you won’t miss your beer too much.
