Come Travel Missouri with Missouri Back Road Restaurant Recipes Cookbook

Follow along with author Anita Musgrove as she shows you the Show-Me State’s best restaurants in Missouri Back Road Restaurant Recipes Cookbook. The fifth volume in the State Back Road Restaurant Recipes Series, this charming Missouri cookbook documents some of Missouri’s most beloved mom-and-pop food stops and preserves their most famous restaurant recipes for all time. Scattered throughout the state, a tour of these culinary gems will take you through five unique Missouri regions. The Northwestern, Northeastern, Central, Southwestern, and Southeastern regions each have their own food culture, history, and range of exciting activities to keep you and your family busy between meals. Let’s hit the road.

Bakeries and Baseball

Starting in the Northwestern region, you’ll want to make a stop at Rolling Pin Bakery, a bakery that specializes in beautiful pastries, cakes, and pies, but also serves lunch classics like Reuben sandwiches, chicken wraps, and house-made chicken salad. Settle into a bowl of seasonal homemade soup that is perfectly followed up with a slice of the Carrot Cake. Catch a Kansas City Royals baseball game at the Kauffman Stadium, featuring a 322-foot-wide water spectacular in the outfield. You may also take part in other exciting activities, like riding the carousel or taking on the batting challenge.

Landmarks of the Northeast

Heading east, you’ll pass right into the Northeastern region. Here you’ll find South 63 Café. This quaint café may be small in appearance, but it has a big heart. While there, order the Hand-Breaded Pork Tenderloin for a comfort food experience that will remind you of home. Take a day trip to St. Louis to see the famous Gateway Arch, a 50-year-old, 630-foot-tall architectural feat that is also the United States’ tallest monument.

Sample the Central Region’s Best Home Cooking Restaurants

A drive through the Central region will take you right by The Iron Horse Hotel and Restaurant, a charming hotel-restaurant combo that offers a taste of life from days gone by. The atmosphere harkens back to the glory days of railroad barons, boasting ornate wood, ironwork, period furnishings, elegant staircases, and courtyard gardens. Sample fried green tomatoes, blackened pork chops, Italian pastas, and a variety of other Southern classics. The Sweet and Spicy Coleslaw pairs perfectly with their delicious lunch sandwiches. Spend a day becoming the artist you always knew you were when you visit The Canvas on Broadway. Take a painting class and enjoy a glass of wine while you let out your inner Picasso.

Delicious Desserts and Live Music

Cruise on down to the Southeastern region for lunch at Fiddlers Fish House. This pond-to-plate Dexter staple that has been serving catfish and seafood in the area since 1983. Enjoy a home-style lunch buffet served daily, and finish off your meal with a decadent slice of Coconut Cream Pie. A Missouri tour would be incomplete without a stop in Branson. After all, it is the live music capital of the world. Buy a ticket one of numerous live shows playing in the Branson Strip and Theater District for exciting face-to-face entertainment.

Seafood & Seasonal Markets

Finally, take a day trip through the Southwestern region for the perfect close to your food tour. Stop at Bayou Lunchbox, a Southern-style seafood restaurant serving up New Orleans-inspired fare. For example, you can choose from overstuffed po-boys, muffalettas, savory jambalaya, and more. Ask for a bowl of the Shrimp Étoufée for a taste experience that is characteristically New Orleanian. Afterwards, pass the day away at the open-air St. James Farmers Market, a seasonal market featuring local produce, baked goods, and handcrafted trinkets for all occasions.
