Mais Arepas, New Orleans, LA Info Report

My daughter told me she had the Arepas here before and they were good, and she wanted me to try them.  We’re still going through the Coronavirus apocalypse, so every restaurant that is open only has pickup or delivery. That being said, we left my house, which is quite a ways off.  Across the Mississippi… Continue reading Mais Arepas, New Orleans, LA Info Report

Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, New Orleans, LA Report #279

The Coronavirus is here.  It’s the apocalypse.  People are being told to stay home unless it’s absolutely necessary to go out.  In fact, the mayor of New Orleans has mandated that!  The third picture above is a picture of Poydras St., in the heart of the Central Business District of New Orleans.  Taking that picture… Continue reading Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux, New Orleans, LA Report #279

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

Blue Giant Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #271

This place is right next door to Fat Boy Pantry, where I tried my first lobster po-boy!  And Surrey’s Café & Juice Bar, which I absolutely love, is in the next block.  I think I might have to buy a house around here! Small, cozy little joint.  We decided on the Shrimp Wontons, the Dan… Continue reading Blue Giant Chinese, New Orleans, LA Report #271

Piece Of Meat, New Orleans, LA Report #265

Besides being a restaurant, this pace is a pretty fancy butcher shop.  If you ever wondered where you could find different cuts of Wagyu beef, duck confit, smoked pork chops and duck breast, Mortadella and numerous hard, dry sausages, this is the place for you!  In fact, while we were in there a lady behind… Continue reading Piece Of Meat, New Orleans, LA Report #265

Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262

This is a Spanish restaurant.  In fact, on their website they describe themselves as a “coastal Spanish restaurant”.  I guess maybe in Spain they differentiate between coastal and other types of Spanish food.  Either way, we don’t have a lot of Spanish restaurants in New Orleans so I was excited about eating here. The large… Continue reading Costera, New Orleans, LA Report #262
