To celebrate my birthday last night, my parents and I went to eat dinner at Ramsi's Cafe on the World .
This was my first time eating at Ramsi's and I chose it in part because there are several vegetarian and vegan options on the menu.
(Yes, the 30 day challenge is over, and yes I need to post about it. Coming soon!)
I also chose it because the last time I tried to eat there it was a Saturday night and we waited 2 hours before giving up and going somewhere else...
I figured it would be much easier to get in on a Tuesday night, and it was. We didn't have to wait at all to be seated.
Ramsi's is located on Bardstown Road in the Highlands. As the name suggests, the cuisine is international fusion. The extensive menu includes an eclectic variety of dishes from around the globe.
The patio had a charming feel, but the weather is still a little warm for my taste so we opted to dine inside.
I started off with a seasonally appropriate Schlafly Pumpkin Ale. I had heard good things about this particular brew, so I jumped at the chance to try it when I saw they had it on tap.
It did not disappoint! The flavor was smooth, slightly sweet and spicy with the flavors and aroma of pumpkin pie.
For my entree, I chose the Thai Noodles. This vegan dish consisted of pan-seared tofu, snow peas, carrots, red peppers and peas tossed with rice noodles. It was served over a bed of cucumbers and lettuce and topped with a peanut ginger sauce.
I thought it was delicious. The peanut ginger sauce made the dish!
We spanned the globe with our meal choices. My mom ordered the Roasted Vegetable Masala and my dad had the Egyptian Kitchen. They said they enjoyed their dishes. I tasted both and really liked them as well!
We finished the meal with dessert. I got excited and forgot to take any pictures! My mom and I split a caramel banana trifle and my dad had a vegan raspberry chocolate trifle (I am kind of making up the names, I don't remember what they were actually called!). They were both very good, but I think I could whip up something similar at home.
After dinner, we browsed Carmichael's Bookstore next door. I love Louisville's local joints; they have so much personality!
I finished off my birthday relaxing and watching the Biggest Loser season premier.
It was a good day.
