Gris-Gris, New Orleans, LA Report #232

If you were born and raised in New Orleans, like me, you know what Gris-Gris means.  If you don’t, I was nice enough to include the definition for you.  No need to thank me.  But here it can also mean great food, because everything we had was fantastic.

Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209

I came here for one thing and one thing only.  The Lafitte Pig sandwich.  I heard from a fellow foodie it was worth the trip.  Sliced ham, pulled pork and bacon, topped with coleslaw and cheddar cheese.  Sounded good to me. Nice sized place.  When I walked in I wasn’t sure if I should have… Continue reading Ugly Dog Saloon & BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #209
