Jung’s Golden Dragon II, New Orleans, La. Report #68

  I once worked as a personal trainer at an Anytime Fitness.  The owner was a Chinese guy and we talked about food once.  I asked him if there was anywhere in New Orleans to get authentic Chinese food and he told me there wasn’t.  Well, this place has two menus.  A typical Americanized Chinese… Continue reading Jung’s Golden Dragon II, New Orleans, La.

Chubbie’s, New Orleans, La. Report #65

It’s hard to find a fried chicken joint that’s not part of some big chain like Popeye’s, KFC or Church’s, but on the Westbank of New Orleans there’s one, and it’s VERY good!  The line inside is a testament to that.  And Chubbie’s sells a lot more than fried chicken.  The only non-chicken food I’ve… Continue reading Chubbie’s, New Orleans, La.

If you’re tired of traditional hot dogs this is the place for you.  Indoor and outdoor patio seating.  Nice bar, with a door allowing the bartender to serve both indoor and outdoor diners.  On weekends they also have local vendors selling art, jewelry and clothes in the patio area.

Chris’s Donuts, New Orleans, La. Report #57

Neyow’s Creole Café, New Orleans, La. #54

I heard very good things about this place.  A friend told me a friend of his came to New Orleans for the first time and he took him here to eat.  He said after eating here his friend wanted to move to New Orleans.  Hmmmm.  Pretty strong endorsement. Nice looking place.  Nice size main dining… Continue reading Neyow’s Creole Café, New Orleans, La. #54

The Olive Branch Cafe’, New Orleans, La. Report #53

Small place on the west bank of New Orleans with some really good food.  The marinara sauce served with the meatballs and angel hair pasta is light and delicious.  For $2.99 you can add what they call an 8″ garlic bread, but its more like a garlicky cheese pizza.  Very good. I’ve had the Pasta… Continue reading The Olive Branch Cafe’, New Orleans, La. Report #53

Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, La. Report #52

This is the location on historic St. Charles Ave., home to the historic St. Charles Ave. Streetcar line.  It’s the oldest continuously operating streetcar line in the world, operating since 1835.  Even though they’re old, they move pretty quick!  There was one passing by as we left and you can see the pic is kind… Continue reading Vincent’s Italian Cuisine, New Orleans, La.
