Port Of Call, New Orleans, LA Report #179

  I was born in New Orleans in the 1960’s and have been here ever since.  So has this place, located right on the eastern edge of the French Quarter.  As long as I can remember I’ve heard that this is THE place to get a burger.   They’re supposedly the best in the world. … Continue reading Port Of Call, New Orleans, LA Report #179

District Donuts, New Orleans, LA Report #177

  This is the Lakeview location.  I hear everyone refer to this place just as District Donuts, but I guess technically the name of the place is District Donuts.Sliders.Brews.  That’s a better name since they’re about so much more than donuts.  But the donuts are special.  At least the one I had was!  More on… Continue reading District Donuts, New Orleans, LA Report #177

El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

  This place is located in a building that used to be a Time Saver convenience store back in the day.  I used to frequent the store in the 1980’s when I was a student at Loyola University to buy all my fine wines.  MD 20/20, Thunderbird, Night Train, Taylor Cream Sherry (on cold nights),… Continue reading El Pavo Real, New Orleans, LA Report #176

Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174

  Glad I found this place.  The food is great!  We started off with the Laquered Pork Belly and Shrimp Rings. The Laquered Pork Belly was honestly one of the best things I have EVER eaten!  Delicious, tender pork belly wrapped in lettuce leave with very thinly sliced peppers (it’s not too spicy) and a… Continue reading Warbucks, New Orleans, LA Report #174

Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

  When people think about the Fair Grounds they think about horse racing.  Makes sense, since horses have been racing here since 1852!  I think that makes it the third oldest race track in America.  But as usual, when I think of any place, I think of FOOD!  And they serve pretty good New Orleans… Continue reading Fair Grounds Race Course & Slots, New Orleans, LA Report #172

Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

  If you’ve ever driven down Tchoupitoulas Street Uptown, you’ve probably noticed Dick & Jenny’s.  The building faces Tchoupitoulas St., but you enter on the side on Jena St., which proved to be a challenge for me.  When you walk down the side you’ll see a door in the middle of the building, with an… Continue reading Dick & Jenny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #168

Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164

  I’ve heard good things about this place and I see why.  Nice looking place.  They use oak in their wood burning oven, and serve their pita breads straight from it to your table so they’re so hot they burn your hands.  It doesn’t get any fresher than that!  And don’t worry about saving some… Continue reading Shaya, New Orleans, LA Report #164
