Secret Thai Restaurant, Chalmette, LA Report #422

This place is located in an area known as Chalmette, down in St. Bernard Parish. When I think of St. Bernard, I think of seafood. In fact, I used to fish and crab down here a lot.

Thai D-Jing, Gretna, LA Report #340

This is a beautiful little place, which you can easily see used to be a house. We would have dined on the front porch if the weather had been nicer. The owners started out with a food truck. I know a few people who were regular patrons, and they all said the food was great.… Continue reading Thai D-Jing, Gretna, LA Report #340

Banana Blossom Thai Cafe’, Gretna, LA Report #12

I love this place.  I’ve never had a bad dish here.  As you can see the sign over the restaurant just says “Thai”, so don’t look for a sign saying “Banana Blossom”.  It’s actually kind of hard to find.  If you can find the Winn Dixie supermarket at the intersection of Belle Chasse Hwy and… Continue reading Banana Blossom Thai Cafe’, Gretna, LA Report #12
