OMG y’all I just had the best dinner. Mr Leckie thought he wanted Mexican food and 19 definitely wanted fish. And google told us there was this place on Cherokee Street called Mariscos El Gato and it was the best.
The first two pictures are of our enormous bowl of paella, which had tons of shrimp, crab legs, mussels, and octopus in it, so much, in fact, that it was a challenge to get a scoop of just rice out. It was spicy, but exactly the right level of spicy. It was supposed to be enough for three (that would be me, Mr. Leckie, and 19), but in fact it was enough for six and we have a huge box of it in the fridge and I know what I’m having for lunch tomorrow.
17 doesn’t like fish. He had chicken fajitas, which he said were delicious.
So, if you’re in St Louis and feeling like you could go for seafood, maybe check out Mariscos El Gato on Cherokee.
