Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

For months now we’ve been trying to eat at a place out here in Metairie called Fusion CafĂ©. A friend of mine told me they make a shrimp pho that’s delicious! The first time we tried to go there, according to their website they were open. When we got there they were closed. We ended… Continue reading Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

Thai Zapp Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #508

About a month and a half ago, I was in Metairie and in the mood for Thai food. I tried a new place and had a meal that was mediocre at best. When I posted my report, a friend told me I SHOULD have gone to Thai Zapp. That Thai Zapp is the BEST place… Continue reading Thai Zapp Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #508

Kabob House, Metairie, LA Report #505

This place is on the main drag through Metairie, so I’ve passed it hundreds of times but never considered stopping in. Looks like a fast-food type of joint, located in a little strip mall and attached to a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop. And as we all know I have a taste for the finer things… Continue reading Kabob House, Metairie, LA Report #505

Thai Ocha, Metairie, LA Report #494

To help keep my slim, sexy body (take my word for it), I go bike riding in Bucktown every Saturday night. After, I eat like a pig to replace all the calories I burned! Tonight, we were in the mood for Thai. Mama Thai is right across the street from the bike path, but they’ve… Continue reading Thai Ocha, Metairie, LA Report #494

Cathay Imperial, Metairie, LA Report #491

(SPECIAL BONUS REPORT INCLUDED! STAY TUNED TO THE END!) or just skip to the end if you’re impatient A long time ago, back in the days of record stores, there was one out here named Memory Lane Records.

Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

A few nights ago I did something I hadn’t done in years. Looked at the restaurant section in Groupon. I used to do it pretty often to get ideas on new places to try, plus it saves you some money. Nothing wrong with that! There was a deal in there for this place. I bought… Continue reading Randazzo’s Family Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #483

Gogi Korean Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #479

I realized that my restaurant reporting seriously lacks Korean cuisine. I only have two reports on Korean joints, and one of those was in London, England! The other was Little Korea BBQ, and I went there way back in June of 2019. I enjoyed it, so I’m not sure why I never went back. All… Continue reading Gogi Korean Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #479

Laura’s Candies, Metairie, LA Report #461

We were driving through Metairie and got redirected off the beaten path by some road construction. That’s when I saw this place. Decided to pop in and check it out. When I saw the sign said, “New Orleans’ Oldest Candy Store”, I thought that it’s not in New Orleans, but maybe it used to be?… Continue reading Laura’s Candies, Metairie, LA Report #461

La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459

There are a few of these in and around the New Orleans area, but I’ve never been tempted to stop in one. I’m just not a fan of French food. Not sure why. Maybe it’s because my native New Orleans cuisine has so much French influence in it I don’t find it different enough to… Continue reading La Madeleine, Metairie, LA Report #459
