When in Louisville, Eat Like the Mayans Do

The Mayan Cafe, Louisville, Kentucky

I’m not sure where most people eat when they go to Louisville, but Bill found a place for lunch called The Mayan Cafe on East Market Street, a trendy stretch of road with galleries and antique shops just east of downtown.

We were drawn to it not only for the yummy sounding food, but also because of the credit given on their menuto the local farms from where they procure their grassfed meats and homemade goat cheese: “Special thanks to our local farmers : Fiedler Family Farms (pork), Foxhollow Farm (beef), Earth’s Promise Farm (chicken), Duncan Farms (eggs), Capriole Farmstead (goat cheese), Hart County Produce (produce), and others”. I love this! Please, restauranteurs, follow this example on your menus!

The food was excellent, but even better knowing that the pork in my Yucatec Salbutes was from a happy pig at Fiedler Family Farms and my goat cheese from the likes of Capriole Farmstead.

Bill’s Mole of the Day (turkey) was equally tasty. The mole sauce is a blend of more than 40 ingredients.
