FOOD: GAME BURGERS
As I said in the last blog, we visited a restaurant called, Game, in Louisville KY. And it is everything you'd expect. A simple burger joint offering you a wide variety of meat choices.
You walk in, and the restaurant is decked out like a ski lodge. The bar is stocked full of whiskeys and beers. Many local specials were available to try. Michael tried this awesome beer called Blue Moon because he's such a risky devil.
The menu is where this restaurant shines though. A simple idea, burgers, with a twist in the way of 14 different meat choices ranging from Kangaroo to Duck.
The local favorite is Wagyu Beef, but I opted to try Kangaroo just to say I had. Kangaroo is pretty gamey and lean, but packed full of flavor. I was very conflicted about eating it, but it was worth the experience. Jared swears by the duck fat fries, but I couldn't get on board.
I'm not sure why, but I figured Kangaroo would have been a white meat, but when cooked it looked similar to beef. If you didn't know it wasn't beef, you'd be in for a hell of a surprise when you took a bite. The sweet potato fries were by far the best i've had, and I get them everywhere.
The smores dessert is not on the menu, but we saw some kids order it and couldn't pass the opportunity to develop diabetes.
