I know, I know. You read that and nearly pooped yourself. Hey, I get it. When I heard there was chicken-fried bacon in the vicinity, I nearly dropped my load as well.
So change your drawers already, and get your butt down to Old Stone Inn. Or, if you’d rather read my Taste Bud about my experience first and THEN go, that’s OK by me. But either way, you should really go.
Why? Because it’s CHICKEN-FRIED BACON. Duh. Also, because it’s served with country gravy, and it’s one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. Also, because the folks at Old Stone Inn in Simpsonville, Ky., are really nice, and it’s a warm, inviting place to have a meal.
You read that right. In the May 1, 2013, edition of The Taste Bud, I unveiled a taste treat shared with me by co-owner of Neil and Patty’s Fireside Grill in Sellersburg, Ind.
You won’t believe your taste buds.
The whole menu is actually quite attractive, with the chicken fingers being one of the favorites of regulars. And the surroundings are like a time warp back to someone’s cozy basement in the 1970s.
“This Taste Bud guy ate me. With potatoes.”
Mmm, pot roast. I love pot roast. And I LOVED the pot roast at the Old Talbott Tavern in Bardstown, Ky. I’m telling you, this thing was a meat orgy — there was a pile of tender, savory beef as big as my head on that plate they served me.
Need I say more? Read all about it in this week’s issue of LEO Weekly.
(By the way, regardless of what the cow community might tell you, I was very gentle.)
Like surprises? Like getting stuffed with tasty treats? Like pig flesh?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you should probably check out Louisville Dishcrawl. And you can read my latest Taste Bud to whet your appetite for the experience. My fellow foodies and I got to taste fare at Bourbon’s Bistro, Cubana, the Grape Leaf and Comfy Cow all in one night.
That’s a recipe for full bellies and happy hearts.
So long, Maido. For now, at least.
It’s time for another Taste Bud, kids, direct from LEO Weekly! This weeks’ edition offers the low-down on Liu’s Chinese Garden in Middletown, as well as bids a teary farewell to Maido Essential Japanese Cuisine in Clifton. Here’s hoping Maido can bounce back before it’s all said and done.
You think this is a taco? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
Who doesn’t like a good taco? The crunchy shell, the spiced meat, with cheese and shredded iceberg? Mmmm.
Wait, not that kind of taco! We’re talking gourmet tacos here, kids. And you can get all the info about where to get some kick-ass gourmet tacos in Louisville with this week’s Taste Bud, courtesy of LEO Weekly.com.
Yep, I got a new job, out in the east end. That means new restaurants to be explored. Well, I found a good’un for you, called ZiaLaLa Cafe.
