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

Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

I loved having Japanese BBQ at Gyu-Kaku, so I figured I’d give the Korean version a try.  I’ve actually never had Korean food.  A guy I used to work with, whose mother is Korean, recommended this place. If you want to grill your own food you can sit at a grill table, but you may… Continue reading Little Korea BBQ, New Orleans, LA Report #207

Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

I get tired of the same old Tex-Mex menus at Mexican restaurants.  They all have basically the same food with maybe slight variations.  So when I saw this place had pig ears and crawfish enchiladas on the menu, I figured I’d give it a try! Beautiful place.  I decided on: And the food: I don’t… Continue reading Johnny Sanchez, New Orleans, LA Report #205

Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

It’s hard to believe this is my 200th report.  Long ago I wondered if I’d still be doing this long enough to get to 200.  Then I thought, “Why not?  It’s not like I’m doing anything else”.  So here I am. For my 200th report I knew I had to go somewhere special.  An old,… Continue reading Commander’s Palace, New Orleans, LA Report #200

Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

This place is located on the ground floor of the Pan-American Life Building, in the Central Business District.  Since the restaurant has a Poydras Street address, I entered on Poydras St.  I didn’t see a restaurant, so I started roaming around, until a security guard behind a desk stopped me.  Our exchange went like this:… Continue reading Tsunami, New Orleans, LA Report #195

Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194

This place popped up on my radar as a good place to have breakfast.  After eating there, I agree!  We decided on the Boudin Hash, Grits, Honey Cluck’n Biskit and the Poutine & Eggs.   And here was the food: Boudin is a pork and rice sausage.  They combined it with chopped potatoes to make… Continue reading Brown Butter, New Orleans, LA Report #194
