St. Louis Eateries Featured on ‘Bizarre Foods’ Show
ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Two St. Louis eateries are featured on tonight’s episode of the cable TV show “Bizarre Foods America.”
“Our bizarre food was toasted raviolis and jello shots,” says Jenny Dean, an employee at Joyce’s Corner, a walkup window at Soulard Market. “They’re pretty strong jello shots.”
Also on the show is Smoki O’s Barbecue on North Broadway, featured for its pig snoot.
“Snoot is a barbecue treat that is done in St. Louis and generally southern Illinois also,” Smoki O’s owner Otis Walker explains. “My family was in the barbecue business back in 1935, had two restaurants, and my great aunt is still alive, she’s 102-years-old.”
“We get them quite a bit,” says customer Don Peak as he waited for his snoot order. “They’re crispy, they’re fried and they put barbecue sauce on them. They kind of crackle, like a pork rind.”
The show airs tonight on the Travel Channel.
