Yummy, yummy, yummy I got food in my tummy! That’s right ladies and gentleman welcome back to yet another episode of ‘What Erica Leigh Eats’. So the girls and I were having just another girls night and we wanted to try something different and so we went to this place called The Fountain On Locust. As soon as you walk in, you are hit with black and white floors, dim-mood lighting and these beautiful hand painted murals that are on every wall. It’s definitely a real chill vibe in there but it’s very intimate as well. Did you know that The Fountain on Locust is the most photographed restaurant in St. Louis, it is also home of the Ice Cream Martini and all of their food is made from scratch? Pretty cool huh?
Now to all my big booty Judy’s and curvier girls out there, I will let you know now that you will have to wobble wiggle to get into their booths. All this yam cam of mine couldn’t just walk right in and sit down, I had to go up and over because their booths do run on the smaller side…so just be prepared. Lol
Alright, now let’s get to the good stuff shall we? We definitely wanted to order drinks but we had no clue that this place offered soooo many options. Literally, there is like 3-4 pages full of drink options on their menu and they aren’t just mojitos and margaritas either. They have signature ice cream martinis of all different flavors, retro cocktails, beer, wine, and adult floats.
My girls Kellie and Alana ordered The Great Mississippi Mudslide and that is made with coffee liqueur, Irish cream and Vanilla Deluxe ice cream garnished with Oreos. She let me try some of hers and when I tell you that it is the bomb-diggity?! I mean I feel like the picture speaks for itself.
For my girl Melissa and myself, we got an adult float and ordered the Champagne Mimosa Float and it came with a scoop of orange sherbet on the side. Not only was it cute to look at but it was really good too! Everyone knows that I’m a lightweight so this drink had the perfect amount of kick to it without it being too overbearing.
Ok and now let’s get down to my favorite part..the food! I ordered The Fountain Cuban sandwich and it had their unique blend of spices, ham, Swiss cheese (I got pepper jack instead), dill pickle and Dijon sauce all on a French baguette and then I had a side of their hand cut seasoned potato chips. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it or not because I’m not the biggest sandwich eater so when I do eat one, I’m very picky about it. I have to say, this sandwich surpassed all of my expectations. It was super delicious and very filling and all for a great price.
That pretty much wraps up this week’s segment of ‘What Erica Leigh Eats’. I give The Fountain On Locust two thumbs up and I’ll definitely be back again to try even more food, drinks and even desserts. The service was great too and they even have free Wi-Fi. If you ever want to give them a try, head on down to 3037 Locust St. St. Louis, MO 63103.
