Memphis Road HouseThis is an american barbecue restaurant. Beside the american style food, this place also serves alcohol in a very american way
The spirit selection is focused on bourbon, american gins, tequila and mezcals
Their wine is californian red wines, mainly from Lodi and Santa Barbara
The beer list is a short list of a few american microbrews and also some of their big brands like Miller and Budweiser
Soft drinks are also very american. Coca Cola or root beer ?
On top of this there is a small selection of classic cocktails, like Margarita, Bourbon Sour and Old Fashioned
This time we went in for some food. Burgers, pulled pork, brisket were some of the things on the menu. My choice went on "all you can eat hot chicken wings". With a nice starter of deep fried spring rolls filled with various meat and cheese
All very delicious
Memphis Road House has the best selection of bourbons in Aarhus
My choice of beer was a very good Yellow Dog Pilsner, followed by a Yellow Dog IPA. This was standard american microbrew and you have to look hard to find a restaurant in Aarhus with a better beer selection than Memphis. I can only think of 2-3 other places and they will also be mentioned in this Advent Calendar: Beside this yellow dog there were a couple of other offerings from Anchor
With the starter I also had a Four Roses Limited Small Batch 2013, and as this is one of the best bourbons bottled in this decade, you can't really go wrong there
As they made a mistake on our payment we got a taste on the house of this on our way out
Which kickstarted a geeky discussion with one of the staff, what Corn Whiskey actually is.
Corn whiskey must have an 80% corn mashbill and be matured in used barrels or non-charred new barrels.
As this Mellow Corn is a "Bottled in Bond" it is at least 4 years old, and the label says it's distilled at DSP KY-31 which is prefire Heaven Hill
I liked it
This is a great restaurant to visit, which is very true to it's inspiration. It's hard to find a restaurant in Aarhus with a better overall drink selection
