Blue Plate Food Tours

Yesterday I went to Lexington and took a walking food tour, Blue Plate Tour. We went to 7 restaurants downtown and had a blast if you are close or going to be in town during the next month you should try it out.
First we started out at Alfalfa's for Blueberry buckwheat pancakes with raspberry syrup.
They were super yummy and they had some very interesting things on the menu that I would love to go back and try.

Next stop was Sam's Hot Dog Stand.

Where we did not try a hot dog or shake (it was 10 am) but had a yummy Kentucky Ale-8

Then it was on to Gratz Park Inn

Where we ate at Jonathan's
And had curry deviled eggs, friend black eye peas, and fried green tomatoes.
Next stop was Cheapside (which I did not get a pic of the front) and we had black bean soup, and corn cakes.
Next stop was DeShae's
Where we had Rum Bread Pudding. I don't like bread pudding and this was AWESOME!!! the best stop on the tour.

Then a stop at the GREAT farmer's market at the Lexington Pasta tent for some fresh pasta. And I had to bring some home with me too.

And the last stop was Belini's
For a yellow tomato polenta Patti with shrimp and pickled shallots.
It was ALL SO YUMMY. The tour is going to start an afternoon tour as well with different stops. you should check it out.
