Had an unexpectedly good foody day yesterday in Louisville, my first full day after arrival. I was pretty tired, having arrived after midnight. But that didn’t stand in the way of some fine local cuisine.
As usual, first up was Con Huevos. It was good to be able to walk there, because with my late arrival, no rental car kiosks were open and I had to take a cab to the house. No wheels for me. The breakfast was as good as remembered – eggs over easy, atop two nice enchiladas and covered with the Con Huevos picante sauces. Their sauces are the best – no wonder their chef is a James Beard award finalist.
After a visit with the grandkids and a much-needed nap, I took a walk around the neighborhood and discovered another gem – Eat Your Bourbon Marketplace. A weird name for a great place – a cafe, a bar, a gift shop, a place to hang around and visit with locals. Bourbon-themed, but also specializing in some Kentucky classics like pimento cheese sandwiches and country ham. And five dollar Old Fashions all day, every day. I had the perfect country ham sandwich and took some pimento cheese home. I think I’ll be a regular there.
Finally, Son-in-law Greg and I took the boys out to Crestwood for an evening meal at 3rd Turn Oldham Gardens, a beautiful spot with some good BBQ and brews (for us, not the boys). The grandkids loved being able to run around and play while we ate, and we enjoyed the food and an unseasonably warm November evening. It was a great finish to an unplanned foody day.
Today I’m thinking some healthier food might be in order, like Green District.
