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

Wishing Town Bakery Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #458

I’ve heard good things about this place. It’s a bakery, and I know people who have come here for birthday cakes. But I didn’t come in to eat cake for dinner. I came in for their REAL food! Tiny place located at the end of a strip mall. First off, we couldn’t find the joint!… Continue reading Wishing Town Bakery Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #458

Three B’s Burger & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #456

A friend of mine, who knows I’m always on the lookout for a good burger, told me about this place. It’s kind of off the beaten path so if she hadn’t I never would have found it! I love the looks of this place. Clean, sleek, modern and well lit. We decided on a beer… Continue reading Three B’s Burger & Wine Bar, Metairie, LA Report #456

Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Today was my son’s birthday. He, like me, is a sushi lover. I heard a lot of good things about this place but neither of us had tried it yet, so I invited him for a sushi birthday feast! Let’s back up about a week. That’s when I invited him. He was going to a… Continue reading Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

I was perusing restaurant reviews and I saw one on this place. I looked it up and discovered it was in Metairie, on Metairie Rd. I’ve been down that street hundreds of times and couldn’t remember ever seeing it. Funny thing about that is I’ve been to this place called Mark Twain’s Pizza on Metairie… Continue reading Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

Giorlando’s Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #451

You ever drive by a place, hundreds of times, and every time you pass you look at it and say, “One day I’ve got to try that place”? This is one of those places. I live in New Orleans and it’s located in Metairie, but right at a very busy intersection on a main thoroughfare.… Continue reading Giorlando’s Restaurant, Metairie, LA Report #451

YuYan Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #447

I love eating authentic ethnic food. That’s not always easy to find. In the New Orleans area by far the easiest authentic cuisine to find is Vietnamese. But, let’s take Mexican for example. Try finding authentic Mexican food. Everything is Tex-Mex style, Americanized Mexican food. I used to work with a guy from China who… Continue reading YuYan Kitchen, Metairie, LA Report #447

Oscar’s, Metairie, LA Report #445

As you can see, this is a bar. Big one. Darts. Pool. Jello shots. All the normal bar stuff. But I’m not a drinker. I’m an eater. I’ve been hearing for some time that the burgers here were great. When people told me it was on Metairie Rd., I had no idea where. I’ve driven… Continue reading Oscar’s, Metairie, LA Report #445

Mr. Ed’s Seafood & Italian, Metairie, LA Report #444

Normally when I go to restaurants that have more than one location, I don’t do a separate report for each location. I just add to the original report I did on the first one I went to. Well, when I walked into this Mr. Ed’s I asked them if they were affiliated with the one… Continue reading Mr. Ed’s Seafood & Italian, Metairie, LA Report #444
