Salvo’s Seafood, Belle Chasse, LA Report #266

Besides being a sit down restaurant, this place is also a seafood market.  You can stop in and grab fresh or boiled seafood to go.  In fact, we’re just getting into crawfish season down here.  A couple at the table next to us ordered a big platter of boiled crawfish, and they looked delicious!  I… Continue reading Salvo’s Seafood, Belle Chasse, LA Report #266

Adams Catfish House, Belle Chasse, LA Report #192

I’ve lived in Algiers and regularly visited the Navy Base in Belle Chasse for about 20 years, so I’ve literally passed by this place hundreds of times.  I’ve always thought, “I like catfish.  One day I’ve got to try that place”.  Tonight was the night. We decided on: And this was the food! I repeat. … Continue reading Adams Catfish House, Belle Chasse, LA Report #192

    Louisiana is shaped like a boot.  If you want to drive down to the “toe” of the boot you’d be driving down Louisiana Hwy. 23 and you’d pass Dairy Dip.  About 70 miles later you’d hit the Gulf of Mexico.  If you don’t grab a bite to eat here, there’s a BBQ joint… Continue reading Dairy Dip, Belle Chasse, LA Report #78
