Want to impress your date with tasty food and interesting facts? Saigon Cafe has you covered! This restaurant serves traditional Vietnamese food like vermicelli noodles, pho soup, and Vietnamese Pandan honeycomb cake. Here's a fun fact to tell your date: in Vietnamese, “bo” means beef or cow, and “luc lac” means to shake. The dish pictured is called "Bo Luc Lac" because they toss the beef back and forth in a wok during the cooking process. So cool!

Cocina Latina

508 N Euclid Ave, St. Louis, MO 63108

With Latin-inspired paintings, dark wooden tables, and banquettes with multi-colored upholstery, Cocina Latina has the feel of an art gallery as much as a restaurant. Head chef/owner Maritza Rios is a native of Peru who has 22 years of restaurant experience cooking a variety of cuisines for restaurants in New York. Now, she owns and operates Cocina Latina in St. Louis, where she shares her classic twist on Latin food. This unique location is a must-try for a date night.
