El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

  This place is located in a building that used to be a Time Saver convenience store back in the day.  I used to frequent the store in the 1980’s when I was a student at Loyola University to buy all my fine wines.  MD 20/20, Thunderbird, Night Train, Taylor Cream Sherry (on cold nights),… Continue reading El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

  My dining partner and I were in the mood for pizza.  I’m ashamed to admit it, but we were headed to Sicily’s Pizza.  That’s right.  The cheap, buffet chain that puts out all you can eat pizza and a few other things.  They happened to be closed.  Maybe the good Lord was looking out… Continue reading Ditali’s, Harvey, LA Report #175

Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174

  Glad I found this place.  The food is great!  We started off with the Laquered Pork Belly and Shrimp Rings. The Laquered Pork Belly was honestly one of the best things I have EVER eaten!  Delicious, tender pork belly wrapped in lettuce leave with very thinly sliced peppers (it’s not too spicy) and a… Continue reading Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174

Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

Anyway, being depressed or not I… Continue reading Los Jefes, Metairie, LA Report #173

Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

  When people think about the Fair Grounds they think about horse racing.  Makes sense, since horses have been racing here since 1852!  I think that makes it the third oldest race track in America.  But as usual, when I think of any place, I think of FOOD!  And they serve pretty good New Orleans… Continue reading Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #171

  When you listen to youngsters talk these days, it seems like they describe every experience they have as “AMAZING”.  And if you’re like me you think, “Well dummy, if everything is amazing, then NOTHING is amazing”!  Well, guess what?  This place is AMAZING!! The place is beautiful.  Small bar as soon as you walk… Continue reading Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #171

Willa Jean, New Orleans, LA Report #170

  I have no idea who Willa Jean is but if you run across her tell her I like her food.  Nice looking place with a little bakery in it.  We saw the baguettes and asked if they could slice half of one up, toast it, bring it to us with some butter, and bag… Continue reading Willa Jean, New Orleans, LA Report #170
