We're starting to think Japan has a national law about all of their food being cute and photogenic... even sandwiches. This week, we'll talk to Amy from Sando Shack about how one of the STL's favorite new spots to get in on the sando trend was actually a plan B, why the Asian food scene in St. Louis is special and what's so great about starting something like this in the Midwest.
 
Plus, we dive in to the latest on mask mandates/requirements in St. Louis and St. Louis County and give you some fun ideas for your weekend!

Tokyo Treats: Your guide to Olympic-level snacking

Tokyo Treats: Your guide to Olympic-level snacking

July 22, 2021
You might not be able to travel to see the Games in person, but you can still get a taste of Tokyo as you watch the Olympics beginning this weekend with the most sit-on-the-couch-friendly food group out there: snacks. We take a dive into the colorful and quirky world of Japanese snack foods, with the help of our friends at Global Foods in Kirkwood, to learn more about what sets them apart, what you should know before taking a bite and why it could be worth your time to give them a try.
 
We'll also have a taste test from the pod booth, plus a busy weekend planner!
 
Don't forget, you can catch the opening ceremony on KSDK 5 On Your Side and read complete Olympics coverage at ksdk.com/olympics!

"Nobody drinks gin, and you certainly can't open a gin bar in St. Louis – a beer and bourbon town."
 
That's what Natasha Bahrami said she was told over and over again when she set out to open The Gin Room on South Grand in St. Louis nearly a decade ago – and thankfully, she didn't listen. Hear how her induction into the Global Gin Hall of Fame puts this city on the map, why non-drinkers have always been part of her business model, and what she can tell about your personality from your spirit of choice.
 
Plus, the weekend planner is chock-full of summer fun: burgers, ice cream and everything in between.

Flavor-Free Edition

Flavor-Free Edition

It's one of the most confusing and frustrating symptoms and long-term effects of a COVID-19 infection: loss of taste or smell. Stop and think about that for a second: what would it be like to not be able to smell fresh baked bread or the perfume of a loved one, taste sweet chocolate ice cream or a slice of pizza dipped in ranch dressing — or worse, what if those smells or tastes repulsed you?
 
We speak with a St. Louis woman who's dealing with that more than 6 months after her positive COVID-19 test, plus two local doctors who explain what we're learning about the phenomenon and how they're trying to treat it.
 
Ahead of the holiday weekend, we have a roundup of tasty food news and your fireworks weekend planner!
 
For the full list of fireworks displays, check out our coverage here.
 
And for the latest updates on the COVID-19 vaccine, follow KSDK's coverage here.
