Welcome back.

A friend of mine from out of town, Kalamzoo, MI to be exact, wanted to try her first slinger. She’d seen me eat a couple and she was finally ready to throw down.

Well, I had to think where could I take her that I knew would have a good slinger? Well, my first thought was to hit up The Buttery Restaurant..because it was good and I’ve just been wanting to get back there for quite awhile. Well, it turned out they were closed, so we ended up on the other side of Tower Grove Park to go to the Courtesy Diner Kingshighway, and it got me thinking about the time I did a quick update on the Chris’s Pancake House slinger…and how it had gotten pretty awful since I’d last had one.



My inspiration.

This is the first post in a new series as suggested by Andrew Veety.  He told me he couldn’t tell one slinger apart from another and wanted some more information on these plates of awesome that I can’t seem to get enough of. (I did clean up the wording a little bit, and he didn’t say anything about them being awesome, but they totally are.)  I consider myself, at this point to be an expert on the slinger, and I’m now going to try to offer up my experiences on St. Louis’s own hangover/drunken cure as to what makes a really good one.  I’m hoping to explain these awesome dishes, and cement to others, the spot I hold in my mind: St. Louis’s foremost slinger expert.
