If you love Thai food and love pizza - this is the fusion for you. While many people hear the combination and are a bit skeptical as to how great it might turn out, there is no need to worry. The kitchen at Thai Pizza Co has mastered the marriage of the two cuisines. Instead of pizzas with traditional tomato sauce, you'll find peanut sauce or curry sauce pizzas that match the spicy Thai toppings such as chicken, beef, pork, tofu or veggies - all perfectly seasoned with Thai flavors. The menu is huge, so allow yourself plenty of time to decide. Make sure you read carefully and pick something that you'll love, as you cannot send something back just because you don't like it. -Rease Kirchner

As soon as the waitress hands you the menu, the comforting realization strikes: dinner will be under 10 bucks! Thai Country Café has an easy, country feel with authentic Thai food and a genuine and knowledgeable staff. The menu is so extensive that an initial visit may bode stressful if decision making isn't a strong suit. Furthermore, any entrée can be tweaked as desired: meat dishes can be vegetarian, mild dishes can be extra spicy, and shrimp can be fish balls. This quaint eatery is small, so it gets pretty hectic during holidays and special events. Still, the quality and quantity far outweigh the price.

For fine Russian food in the St. Louis area, Astoria is one of only two choices, the other being Zhivago's. An upscale restaurant in West County, Astoria offers some American dishes on the menu, but the Russian specialties are definitely the favorites. A splendid selection of appetizers includes an unusual stuffed eggplant and tender beef dumplings. For an entrée, the traditional Beef stroganoff is outstanding, served with potatoes instead of noodles. If you don't mind the calories, try a luscious Russian Napolean for dessert.
