Trey Yuen, Mandeville, LA Report #418

I’ve been hearing great things about this place for decades. By decades, I don’t mean 20 years or so ago. I mean the 1980’s! The only reason I’ve never been until now is it’s not in New Orleans, which is where I live. It’s located across Lake Pontchartrain in Mandeville, LA. Their original location was… Continue reading Trey Yuen, Mandeville, LA Report #418

Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

This place describes their food as authentic Japanese food with a hint of Cajun spice. That intrigued me, so I put it on my list of restaurants I wanted to try some time back. Then last night I saw a glowing review of it online, which pushed me to get in here today for lunch.… Continue reading Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

I love Chinese food, so I’m always willing to try a new place. It seems Chinese restaurants in New Orleans all have basically the same things on their menu. I’m always looking for that place that will wow me with something wonderful and different. I recently fell in love with Hong Minh, which doesn’t do… Continue reading Ming’s, New Orleans, LA Report #384

Green Tea, New Orleans, LA Report #378

Ok, let me explain how I ended up here. I was perusing Instagram and I saw the first picture below. You slap a lobster tail on top of anything you immediately get my attention! So I looked up the place and read their story, which is in the following pictures. Sounds like a great place… Continue reading Green Tea, New Orleans, LA Report #378

Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

When I woke up today it was raining. Most people wake up and think about what the day might hold for them. I wake up and immediately think about what I’m going to eat. For some reason the rain put me in the mood for Pho. Since I was hungry, I headed to the nearest… Continue reading Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

When I first heard of this place I thought it was a Chinese restaurant. It’s actually a Vietnamese restaurant, but besides the fact there’s Pho on the menu, it’s hard to tell. Their website describes the food as, “Saigon’s Southern Vietnamese flavors, modernized with influences from French and American cuisine; all made with the freshest… Continue reading Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

Grand Buffet, Harahan, LA Report #319

I’m not a big fan of Chinese food buffets. But I had just fasted 12 hours for bloodwork for a physical today. That left me absolutely starving. In fact, I was so hungry I almost bit into the nurses arm that was drawing my blood! When I got out of there this place was nearby,… Continue reading Grand Buffet, Harahan, LA Report #319

Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

This place is nowhere near nothing!  Tucked away on a back street, you’ve got to know it’s back there to find it.  It’s the kind of place that has to have good food to stay in business, because they can’t count on a lot of traffic passing by to bring new customers in.  I heard… Continue reading Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

3 Happiness Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #294

This place is located in a strip mall in Gretna, right down the street from one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants, Tan Dinh.  The menu here offers Chinese and Vietnamese food.  A foodie friend of mine, who happens to be of the Asian persuasion, recommended it, so my hopes were high I’d have a great… Continue reading 3 Happiness Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #294

Red’s Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #278

I heard this place had great food.  I used to work in this neighborhood, but haven’t been down this way in some time.  I couldn’t remember seeing a Chinese restaurant in this area, so I got the address.  3048 St. Claude.  I’m driving down St. Claude, in the direction that the address numbers are increasing. … Continue reading Red’s Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #278
