    The Joy Luck - Best Bite of The Week
    Print this page

    As we head into fall and the temperatures continue to drop, it’s time to find food that warms our souls. The Joy Luck is the place for authentic Asian and Taiwanese dishes that will warm you up, focusing on creating belly-warming comfort food in a friendly and bistro-like atmosphere.

    This week’s best bite is The Joy Luck’s Taiwanese sausage roll. The sausage is wrapped with a layer of grounded white chicken breast and then wrapped with seaweed, encrusted with panko crumbs and lightly fried. It’s full of flavor and texture ($6).  Pop one in your mouth and you’ll quickly want another. If you like a crunchy texture, order the sauce on the side so the panko crumbs won’t get soggy.

    The pork soup dumplings ($7) are a signature appetizer that’s a fun must-try. It’s a dumpling with hot broth and pork inside - don’t immediately pop the entire thing in your mouth. There’s a right way to eat a soup dumpling and if you don’t know it, ask your server. Other notable favorites include the Formosa chicken roll ($6), the Cantonese roast duck ($16) and the Kentuckyaki beef ($20).

    The Joy Luck is nestled back on Bardstown Road, creating the perfect area for patio seating. The outdoor arrangement is lovely and pet friendly.
