Hoshun, New Orleans, La. Report #22

In my opinion this is the BEST Chinese Restaurant in New Orleans and every time I go there they reinforce that opinion.   A good thing is if you can’t decide between Chinese and Japanese they also have a sushi menu so you get the best of both worlds!  And they do both well. I’ve… Continue reading Hoshun, New Orleans, La. Report #22

Johnny Longboats, West Palm Beach, Fl. Report #21

I also had the pleasure to dine in this place during my escape from southeast Louisiana.  If you see Jambalaya on the menu and they say it’s “served over rice”, don’t get it!  Jambalaya IS rice!  Another little tip I was no longer in Louisiana. Nice looking place.  It’s pretty cool there at night and… Continue reading Johnny Longboats, West Palm Beach, Fl. Report #21

Rita’s, West Palm Beach, Fl. Report #20

I finally escaped the New Orleans area for a little vacation.  In southeast Louisiana we have snowballs, or snowcones as some might say, but we don’t have frozen custard.  Lord I wish we did! I had been to a Rita’s before in Alabama and loved it.  The Italian ice and frozen custard are utterly delicious.… Continue reading Rita’s, West Palm Beach, Fl. Report #20

MoPHo, New Orleans, La. Report #18

  Pho is a Vietnamese soup, and this place offers several different types of Pho.  As the name implies it’s Asian cuisine with numerous twists.  So straight to the food. Crispy Brussels Sprouts with MoPHo Mayo – Delicious.  Like a sriracha mayo for dipping. Shrimp and pork spring rolls – Just OK.  Peanut dipping sauce… Continue reading MoPHo, New Orleans, La.

LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, La. Report #16

The place is called LA 23 BBQ because it’s on Louisiana Highway 23, also known as Belle Chasse Highway.  This is the highway that leads all the way down to the “toe” of the boot Louisiana is shaped like, mostly following the Mississippi River all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico.  You have… Continue reading LA 23 BBQ, Belle Chasse, La.

Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, La. Report #15

Pretty place.  Nice fake tropical atmosphere with plenty of fake parrots, coconut and banana trees.  Lots of desserts, including beignets.  I’ve only been here for breakfast and that’s good enough for me.  The omelets are made with three eggs and described as “open faced”.  Numerous choices including the “build your own” option with plenty of… Continue reading Parrot Pete’s, Harvey, La.
