Dine Around the World
A German beer haus in Northern Kentucky, Peruvian and Mayan cafés in Louisville, great Greek in Richmond and Mexican in Ashland – inside a gas station, no less? We got you! Check out these international tastes throughout the Bluegrass State.
Northern Kentucky’s concentration of German immigrants makes it a hotspot to enjoy brats and kraut, pretzels with spicy mustard and ginormous steins of Bavarian bier. Pop into Wunderbar pub in Covington to hoist a pint and enjoy live music.
Louisville is one of the Mid-South’s great food cities. Taste dishes featuring bold Latin flavors at the Mayan Café, where chef Bruce Ucan’s empanadas, braised meats, fried plantains and zesty sauces will transport you to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.
Great Northern Italian cuisine awaits in Hopkinsville, home to Da Vinci Little Italian Ristorante, where European-born chef Pavel Skorpil realized a lifelong dream of opening his own restaurant. Skorpil perfected the bounty of soups, pastas, seafood specialties and desserts that delight guests today.
Stop in Bowling Green for cuisine that folks nearly lose their minds over at Tsunami Asian Restaurant. Most go for the authentic Vietnamese pho noodle or rice bowls full of meat, veggies, eggs and savory broths.
