Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295

There’s a restaurant right down the street from here called New Orleans Food & Spirits which everyone raves about.  They don’t take reservations.  Strictly first come first serve. That’s where we tried to go, and they told us it’d be a 25 minute wait.  With the number of people waiting for a table, looked more… Continue reading Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295
