The Real Humans podcast crew is off this week, so we’re sharing this story from KCUR’s new food podcast Hungry For MO. It’s about chef Qui Tran — who immigrated with his family from Vietnam to St. Louis, and fell in love with a unique, oddly-named dish called the St. Paul sandwich.

Read more about how Missouri's immigrants created the St. Paul sandwich 80 years ago from KCUR's Mackenzie Martin.

You can also hear more of the stories behind iconic foods in the state of Missouri on Hungry For MO, a podcast hosted by KCUR’s Natasha Bailey and Jenny Vergara.
