The latest edition of Sauce Magazine features St. Louis restaurants' takes on Taco Bell's famous Crunchwrap Supreme, including this recreation from 12oh7 Herban Eatery.

Sauce Magazine released its January Hit List of five new restaurants to start off 2022 right, whether you’re eating in-person or ordering takeout.

Sauce Executive Editor Meera Nagarajan joined Tuesday’s St. Louis on the Air to rave about the magazine’s staff picks for January. Nagarajan also discussed a peculiar trend in the St. Louis restaurant scene: local eateries recreating Taco Bell’s iconic Crunchwrap Supreme, often with vegetarian or vegan ingredients. Nagarajan promised that all versions meet “the crunch factor” but said vegan pop-up 12oh7 comes the closest to replicating the fast-food item.

Sauce’s January 2022 Hit List:

Taco Bell Crunchwrap Supreme takes:

  • The “Munchwrap Seoulpreme” at Seoul Taco, locations in St. Louis, University City and Chesterfield 
  • The “Crunchy Wrap” at Terror Tacos, 3191 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis
  • The “Crunchywrap” at 12oh7, (only open on Tuesdays), 6 N. Sarah St., St. Louis
