Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

  I was in the mood for sushi so I decided to give Tennou a try.  Small place, but nice.  The only hot tea they have is green tea.  If you order it, the pot comes out without tea bags in it, so it’s brewed ahead of time.  No waiting for it to steep. The… Continue reading Tennou Hibachi & Sushi Bar, Harvey, LA Report #92

Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

  I normally wouldn’t review a national chain but I’m a serious burger lover.  That doesn’t mean I’d review joints like Burger King or McDonald’s, but just the special burger places, like Atomic Burger (Report #35), Desi Vegas (Report #1), Ground Patti (Report #13), Mooyah (Report #67), New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood (Report #25), Red… Continue reading Five Guys, Harvey, LA Report #91

Big Al’s Seafood And Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #75

I received an email from Groupon with their featured deals and Big Al’s Seafood was one.  I looked at the menu and some appetizer caught my eye, so I bought the Groupon and today headed to Big Al’s. This place is right on the Westbank Expressway, but tucked back off the street behind some automotive… Continue reading Big Al’s Seafood And Spirits, Harvey, LA Report #75

New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25

  This place is a local chain with several locations around the New Orleans metro area.  They’ve been around since 1984 and are pretty good!  In spite of the name I find they don’t really have outstanding burgers.  If I want a good burger, I’d head elsewhere.  But I had been in the mood for… Continue reading New Orleans Hamburger & Seafood Co., Harvey, LA Report #25
