Causeway Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #525

This place is located just one block away from a very popular shopping mall in Metairie. It’s also located right before the Interstate 10 onramp to New Orleans, so just about every time I’ve been in Metairie and headed home, I passed right by it. Not being a drinker, I never considered dropping in. But… Continue reading Causeway Bar & Grill, Metairie, LA Report #525

Boudin King, Jennings, LA Report #524

Boudin is a sausage made with pork, rice and numerous seasonings. I love it! It’s about impossible to find good boudin in the New Orleans metro area. Today I found myself driving from Lake Charles, Louisiana, back to New Orleans, through the heart of Cajun country where you can get great boudin. I see a… Continue reading Boudin King, Jennings, LA Report #524

Palmettos On The Bayou, Slidell, LA Report #523

I knew I’d be in Slidell, LA., today, so earlier this week I asked folks in an online food group where I should eat. This was overwhelmingly the suggestion I got. I decided to take their advice. From the outside the place looks like a little shack. But it’s funny. Just like every morning when… Continue reading Palmettos On The Bayou, Slidell, LA Report #523

A Taste Of Thailand Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #522

Eating at a Thai restaurant in Gretna on Thanksgiving eve is a Blaine family tradition going back 100’s of years. It’s one I’ll never break. So we ended up here tonight.

Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

I’ve driven past this place for years, and for some reason it caught my eye. I thought it looked like the kind of hole in the wall neighborhood joint where you get great food. So I kept saying one day I’d have to stop and try them out. Then on September 17th, I was in… Continue reading Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

Fogo de Chão, New Orleans, LA Report #520

This place is one of those Brazilian Churrascarias. It’s a chain with numerous locations in Brazil and the United States.

Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

After a delicious lunch at La Patrona, we decided to stop here for dessert. Never been to a pie specialty shop before. I like pie. I was hoping I’d be happy. In the end, I was. You can buy any pie by the slice. Online I saw they had a Bananas Foster pie. I was… Continue reading Windowsill Pies, New Orleans, LA Report #519

La Patrona, New Orleans, LA Report #518

We had no plans on coming here today. I have a credit card attached to the Marriot hotel chain. They send me emails featuring certain restaurants, and I get points for hotel stays if I dine in those places. One of those restaurants was the place in the last picture above. A Mexican place called… Continue reading La Patrona, New Orleans, LA Report #518

Dian Xin, New Orleans, LA Report #517

I’ve been hearing people rave about this place for a long time. There’s only one thing that’s kept me from trying it until now. It’s located in the French Quarter, and like many native New Orleanians I hate coming into the Frech Quarter. Mainly because of the parking situation. Luckily, when I came here for… Continue reading Dian Xin, New Orleans, LA Report #517

The Original Fiorellas’ Cafe, New Orleans, LA Report #516

This area of New Orleans has had a few restaurants as long as I can remember. I used to eat at all of them when I lived and worked near here. But 25 years ago, I moved to the Westbank of New Orleans, so I hardly get to this area anymore. But I’ve heard several… Continue reading The Original Fiorellas’ Cafe, New Orleans, LA Report #516
