Road Trip!!!

2 May

Havana Rumba LLC[1]Now that we have explored some wonderful restaurants in the tri-state area, how about venturing out a bit further?

Only two hours from Evansville, Louisville could easily be explored during a quick day or weekend trip.

There are three amazing restaurants I would recommend in Louisville.

If you’re in the mood for a flavorful sandwich with melt-in-your-mouth tender meat, try the Cubano!

For example, wouldn’t this delectable Baked Salmon in Lime-Coconut Cream Sauce just fly your senses somewhere that’s not here?
