Little Chinatown, Kenner, LA Report #258

I belong to a food lovers group on social media, and whenever someone asks where they can get good Chinese food, this place is mentioned.  Multiple times.  I figured I’d come in and see what all the fuss was about. Before coming in I checked out the menu online.  They have a lot of dishes… Continue reading Little Chinatown, Kenner, LA Report #258

The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

I love dining in this area.  The restaurants around here are built up high on top of wooden pilings, so they have a nice view of Lake Pontchartrain.  This one is located right next to a big, beautiful, chain restaurant named Landry’s Seafood House.  Landry’s is closer to the lake with a better view, but… Continue reading The Blue Crab, New Orleans, LA Report #257

Gendusa’s Italian Market, Kenner, LA Report # 256

Someone I work with lives pretty far from this place, and drives miles past a lot of good Italian restaurants to come here.  Now I know why. Not a huge place.  There’s a small building next door to the main restaurant to handle overflow diners, which is a where we sat.  I was wondering if… Continue reading Gendusa’s Italian Market, Kenner, LA Report # 256

La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time.   It’s an Argentine Steakhouse that I’ve heard many good things about.  We were in the steak mood so we headed on over! We decided on: And the food: First they brought us a nice little bread basket with some olive oil.  Square pieces… Continue reading La Boca, New Orleans, LA Report #253

The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252

We made our annual trip to a Christmas tree farm in Covington, LA., to cut down our own Christmas tree.  As we always do, we stopped at The Chimes for lunch, and were told there was a 45-50 minute wait for a table!  Being impatient and hungry, we decided to go elsewhere. Elsewhere presented itself… Continue reading The Blind Tiger, Covington, LA Report #252
