Epicurious Louisville

Louisville Kentucky is a treasure trove of amazing eats. I blog about them here. Y'all pull up a chair and sit awhile.

I’m SO excited for #BestofLou on Thursday at PLAY Louisville! If you haven’t got your tickets yet, you should,  because there are still a few left at bestoflou.com! 

krystinrobertson asked: Random question for ya: do you have any suggestions for places to visit in the surrounding states? I am gonna check out Cedar Point, and I might go to Nashville with my boyfriend during the week of our vacation. I thought I would ask you for stuff to check out. It could be anything from restaurants to shops to museums or whatever. Just cool stuff to visit. What do you think?

Hey lady! 

I have no idea about Ohio, but Nashville is definitely an amazing place to go to eat. As cliche as it is, definitely hit the Pancake Pantry, I love that place. Definitely the Pharmacy Burger Parlor, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken, and pretty much any place that serves that great, down-home Southern food you really start to get in TN. 

I hope you have a great time! I need to go hang out in Nashville a little more. 

How to be happy in this world: 
Buy a mini donut maker
Stuff butter biscuit dough into it to make mini butter biscuit donuts
Cut them in half
Smear them with goat cheese and local honey
Summarily devour them. 
Fun fact: mini donut makers are awesome.

Crab Rangoon from Joy Luck on Bardstown Road. Expect to hear much more about Joy Luck from me (I’m writing about them for the Mag) but for now, suffice to say: you need to go. I’ve never been so impressed with Asian food in Louisville. 

Lobster Cigar (lobster, cream cheese, vegetables wrapped with an egg roll) and Fire Fire (spicy crab, shrimp tempura, wrapped in an egg roll) are two deep-fried delicacies from BARcode 1758 on Frankfort, where Maido used to be, close to the Silver Dollar. Really good, interesting, Japanese-Korean fusion food. 

Blackberry soft-serve from Gralehaus. I went twice in one day I loved it so much, and this soft serve was incredible. Also pictured: the cutest boy in the whole wide world, my bestest best friend, who I’m privileged to call my husband. 

Ain’t life just grand.
