One of the quickest ways to my happiness spot is food. I told Andy that the only way his proposal could have been better is if we were at a cool hotel and when I walked in the door, instead of having a trail of roses and candles that led to the bed and heart shaped bathtub (he did not do that) if he could have a trail of crab legs, like 50 of them. Then we could cook them and chow down for the rest of the night.
And he still think I’m awesome after that comment :)
I would consider myself a foodie for sure. I LOVE to try new things and when it is good, I make romantic sounds (to the food of course) to let everyone know at the table how good my dish is! I wanted to share with you the top 5 restaurants that I LOVE in our beautiful city.
1.Mussel and Burger
This should come as no surprise! We gotta support our next door neighbors, not like they really need it because this is one of the hottest restaurants not only in the city but the country. This place is undeniably delicious, and its undeniably delicious every single time. The atmosphere is so fun at night especially, tons of people getting together with their family and friends and enjoying killer food. I love it here! If you haven’t went you need to go as soon as possible, and if our buddy Max is working the bar, tell him hi for me, he’s an amazing bartender and very friendly!
2. Silver Dollar
Well this atmosphere is ridiculous! Right there on Frankfort Avenue, this little gem has a small candle on every table, stringed lights everywhere and a stellar beer selection. It’s smaller and quaint on the inside with friendly service and very savory food. The veggie burger is the bomb.com and so are their sauces they bring out! Prices are reasonable and for the atmosphere, it doesn’t get much better than this one!
Now I found this love on August 22 when Sam and Danielle and I celebrated the end of our workouts together! It was love at first breakfast bite. This place has it going on! In my opinion, this is the best breakfast biz in the city, like hands down. And just to let you know, I have tried a plethora of breakfasts spot in Louisville and there is a reason that every location is on a 45 minute wait every time I call on a Saturday morning! You gotta try the Breakfast Nachos, Danielles favorite dish is there rendition of the hot brown. And the orange juice tastes like you are biting into a real friggin orange and their everything muffin is……. like whoa. Need I say more?
4. Hilltop Tavern
This little joint! Hilltop is located right across the street from Silver Dollar and they couldn’t be more different. Hilltops atmosphere is way cool and has a very local feel. A little bit more “rugged” if you will, with old games you can play and a pingpong table, strictly of your enjoyment. It may not look like much when you walk in but the. food. is. out. of. this. world. Everything is made fresh there except their fries and chicken fingers or popcorn shrimp (not sure which one or if they even have popcorn shrimp but its something along those lines) Everything else is theirs though! Hilltop also has an incredible veggie burger, actually the first veggie burger I ever tried (and I’m not close to a vegetarian) and from that point on, that place became on of my faves!
5. Coals Pizza
Now. I did save this one for last. OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. My awesome guests Jimmy and Cindy gave me a gift card to Coals a few weeks back. Andy and I went there two fridays ago when we got off work, so it was around 4:30. First of all the place is cute as can be. Tiny little thing, but very nice. Our server was AMAZING, and I really wish I could remember his name but everyone was incredibly friendly (which scores major point with me and Andy). First of all, it was happy hour and we ate like a king and queen.
$10 bottle of wine
$10 whole pizza
50% two orders of wings
And lastly, the best brownie I have ever tasted in my 27 years on planet earth. It had chunks of sea salt and carmel glaze to come with it. I almost fell out of my both. I basically yelled at our server to come over to our table so I could tell him what this did to MY SOUL!!! I did also tell him they really needed to add some vanilla ice cream to it and you know what his response was? “We can’t mam, we don’t have a freezer here… everything is made fresh daily” My response, “Of course it is, well I’ll buy this place a blue cooler on wheels, throw some ice in it and grab a tub of Breyers vanilla ice cream from Kroger and lets just see how it goes.”
Lol, he has no clue what Andy deals with everyday. But seriously, this place was my favorite!! Defintiely go there and if you get there during happy hour, lucky you! I know you won’t be disappointed!
