From beer cheese to bourbon balls, Louisville is home to some of the greatest treats in the culinary world.
Louisville Food Tours explores the history, impact, and flavor of Bourbon City. So let’s go, y’all!
Led by a former teacher-turned-historian named Jeremy, the food tour took our group throughout the bustling NuLu district — including a dip into the adjacent Butchertown neighborhood — as we discovered the area’s history.
We first wound our way through part of the Butchertown neighborhood, appetites perked up from the beer cheese and pretzels we’d had at Goodwood.
We rounded the bend and found our stomachs hungry just in time to arrive at Biscuit Belly in NuLu, which rose to the challenge of feeding us until the next stop with a flight of four different gravies and a basket full of mini biscuits.
We found ourselves a block over at Feast BBQ, which just celebrated its 10th birthday back in August. The restaurant at 909 E. Market St. is housed in an old renovated garage.
It’s at this point in the tour that Jeremy tells us about the history of a NuLu streetcar that used to trolley patrons from the city’s core to as far out as Jeffersontown.
While hot chicken is technically one of Nashville, TN’s claims to fame, Royals Hot Chicken is just as good, if not better, than any Prince’s or Hattie B’s you could visit for its 24-hour brined tenders and smoky hot sauce.
