This week on the Sauce podcast: Trattoria Marcella, Ramsay's Kitchen and the emerging hot pot trend around St. Louis

This week on the Sauce podcast, Michelle and Meera discuss the brand new Umami Seasons Hot Pot in the Delmar Loop that serves Taiwanese hot pot, which is an interactive style of Asian dining where food is cooked at the table in different types of broth.

They also discuss the emerging hot pot trend in general at the recently opened Urban Kitchen in Chesterfield Valley and at Tai Ke Shabu Shabu in Olivette.

Another trend in the conversation: fusion. From Indian fusion restaurants like Taco Twist in the Central West End to Tikka Tangy and Amrut Fusion in Chesterfield to the soon-to-open Ramsay's Kitchen at Four Seasons Hotel St. Louis to Oats & Honey Cafe in Creve Coeur; restaurants are blending cuisines more than ever.

From the April issue, they talk about all the reasons Sauce loves Trattoria Marcella in Lindenwood Park.
