38. Bacon maple donut
Nord’s (address and info) Schnitzelburg
How do you make a donut better? Cover it in maple icing and top it with bacon. Thank you, Nord’s, for this revelation. We are forever indebted to you.
39. Fried fish
Mike Linnig’s (address and info) Cane Run Road
It’s hard to believe that Mike Linnig’s has been frying up fresh fish, shrimp, frog legs, and oysters for 90 years. Located just off the river and easily accessible via the Louisville Loop, the menu can be overwhelming, but we recommend keeping it classic and ordering Mike’s Famous Fish Plate, which comes with two hand-breaded fried filets, French fries, coleslaw, and plenty of the house-made tartar sauce.
40. Simply Southern ice cream
Comfy Cow (address and info) Old Louisville (& Other Locations)
Butter pecan ice cream + pecan pie + chocolate chips + bourbon. It’s Kentucky’s sweetest flavors served ice cream-style. We couldn’t ask for more.
