Ask anyone about St. Louis, and they’re likely to bring up Guerrilla Street Food, the Filipino-inspired food truck-turned-restaurant. They’ll also probably say something about the sour fried chicken, a new dish that chef Brian Hardesty says “was inspired by the sinigang sour soup served in the Philippines.”

The key is his tamarind-lime seasoning blend, which goes onto the chicken right after its fried—and works like magic on eggs, vegetables and the like. You can source lime powder online, but if you’d rather do without it, just squeeze a bit of fresh lime juice over the freshly fried chicken.
