New Indian grocery leads us back to Shreeji Wednesday, Dec 2 2020 

Back in the ‘90s, I lived for a while on New York City’s Lower East Side. It was quite an experience for a Louisville boy, and one of the best things about it was my proximity to Indian Restaurant Row. That’s what we called the block of Second Street between First and Second avenues, anyway, … Continue reading New Indian grocery leads us back to Shreeji

We love tacos, and I Love Tacos does them right Wednesday, Oct 7 2020 

I should have probably gotten out to I Love Tacos in Jeffersontown sooner. It certainly got my attention when its owners were brave enough to open up (takeout and curbside service only) on March 25, one week after Governor Andy shut down dining in across the state. And then there’s that “I ?? Tacos” logo … Continue reading We love tacos, and I Love Tacos does them right

Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch, at Dakshin Wednesday, May 6 2020 

When the pandemic abruptly shut down all the restaurants in March, Dakshin Indian Restaurant’s owner Sanjay Taxak took many of the same steps as other local eateries: He started offering takeout service and curbside pickup, and he began offering his restaurant’s Indian fare delivered via Grubhub, Postmates, and Uber Eats. But that wasn’t enough. Taxak … Continue reading Yes, there is such a thing as a free lunch, at Dakshin

What’s a bhaji pav? Honest Indian’s new delights Wednesday, Jan 15 2020 

Way back in 1975, when hardly anyone around here knew what street food was, Vijay Agrawal took his first steps toward culinary success when he added bhaji pav – a popular Mumbai veggie curry dish served with white rolls – to the selection of his outdoor chaat (snack) cart in downtown Ahmedabad, India’s fifth-largest city. … Continue reading What’s a bhaji pav?

However you pronounce SOU, we sure like it. Wednesday, Dec 4 2019 

SOU might mean “South.” It could represent “soul.” Yet the proper way to pronounce the name of this new Plainview-area eatery is not “sow” or “soo” but “So-you.” Intentional ambiguity seems to lie at the heart of this upscale dining room in a thoroughly renovated former Skyline Chili parlor, and that’s all right. SOU is … Continue reading However you pronounce SOU, we sure like it.

Las Margaritas isn’t just about the margaritas Wednesday, Oct 23 2019 

It came as no real surprise when I discovered that Las Margaritas Mexican Cuisine features margaritas at its well stocked bar. After all, lots of Mexican restaurants do. But this place takes it to the next level, offering a choice of a dozen house margaritas, from traditional models built with tequila or mezcal to hibiscus, … Continue reading Las Margaritas isn’t just about the margaritas
