Could this Mussel and Burger Bar dish be the next $10 Challenge?

Could this Mussel and Burger Bar dish be the next $10 Challenge?

I’m in a pickle. I don’t know what restaurant to visit for the next $10 Challenge. Granted, this is a wonderful problem to have — there are so many good, interesting and/or new restaurants around Louisville that it’s hard to pick which one to focus on.

So I’ll let you guys make the tough choice for me.

Ashlee Eats readers will pick the next $10 Challenge restaurant. I have some suggestions, and I want you to vote on the one you want to read about. Vote in the poll below through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 16. I’ll tally the votes and post the $10 Challenge about the winning restaurant Monday, Oct. 21.

Here are the contenders for the first crowd-sourced $10 Challenge:

  1. Mussel and Burger Bar: This is one of my favorite newer restaurants in the area, but it is indeed a challenge to only spend 10 bucks for hand-crafted deliciousness on a bun (or in a bowl if you get the mussels).
  2. Proof on Main: I’m not gonna lie — some of the menu descriptions are a little scary (charred octupus?). But this restaurant inside the 21c Museum Hotel has gotten a lot of attention nationwide for its cuisine. Could I find something delicious and inexpensive?
  3. Simply Thai: I love Thai food, but I’ve yet to make it out to this often-recommended eatery in the East End.
  4. KFC Eleven: OK, it’s a “concept” dining experience from a corporate fast-food behemoth, so this pushes the boundaries of keeping the $10 Challenge local. But I’m curious to see fried chicken turned fast casual at Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road.
  5. Bonnie & Clyde’s Pizza Parlor: I’ve gotta throw in a South-end option. A co-worker was disappointed I hadn’t tried what she called some of the best pizza in town. Should I be the judge of that?

Ready? Let’s do this!

  1. Strongly suggest Simply Thai for this one. I think you’ll love it!

  2. Proof on Main has a fantastic bison burger, but you’d be hard-pressed to not blow the budget there.

    Simply Thai may be a budget buster (unless you do lunch), but I strongly recommend it. It is overall one of my favorite restaurants in Louisville.

  4. […] the first winner of the Readers’ Choice $10 Challenge poll. Since there was a tie for first place, the second location will be featured in two […]
