Ohhh, this place just makes my stomach so happy. The rainbow panang curry on literally anything tastes like heaven. This is about a 20 minute drive from the house, but well worth it, especially if you find yourself in East Memphis.

So this is actually a shack located in a Lowe's parking lot. And, like most food located in strange places in Memphis, is absolutely delicious. Kevin swears by the trout tacos.

Like it says in the title, Gus's is indeed world famous, and justifiably so! Samin Nosrat (Salt Fat Acid Heat author) has even attempted to recreate their recipe in her now-popular book. NOTE: All of their food is fried in peanut oil, so if you have nut allergies, this is likely not for you.

Local Breweries
As beer enthusiasts, we always make time to visit local breweries when we are in a new city - we encourage you to do the same here!
We love Traffic IPA, and they typically have live music and food trucks.

Their usual setlist of beers is great, but they also have rotating taps with seasonal creations. In addition, the Broad Avenue art district is a great place to meander about!

A new(-ish) addition to the Broad Avenue collection of restaurants and bars. VERY good breakfasts, but also great for lunch (or a pop-in after spending time at Wiseacre).

Located in Cooper Young, this location was once Priscilla Presley's hair salon (hence the name). Delicious and inventive menu, and known for its brunch.

This museum is an important piece of Memphis history, and an absolute must while you are here. Plan on spending about 3 hours at the museum, and ensure you have time for meaningful reflection after your visit...it's a lot to process.

The Dixon Gallery is a nice art museum, but really, we love the gardens just as much. In the summers, the often show movies on the lawn.
