Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

I’ve driven past this place for years, and for some reason it caught my eye. I thought it looked like the kind of hole in the wall neighborhood joint where you get great food. So I kept saying one day I’d have to stop and try them out. Then on September 17th, I was in… Continue reading Charles Seafoods, Harahan, LA Report #521

The Original Fiorellas’ Cafe, New Orleans, LA Report #516

This area of New Orleans has had a few restaurants as long as I can remember. I used to eat at all of them when I lived and worked near here.

Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

This place is affiliated with the national chain of Frostop restaurants, started in 1926 in Columbus, Ohio. There’s also one in Metairie (Report #376), which is just named “Frostop”. This one is named Ted’s Frostop, so I guess they’re all independently owned and operated. The menu here is also different, so I gave this one… Continue reading Ted’s Frostop, New Orleans, LA Report #487

Chateau Orleans Po-Boys, Marrero, LA Report #485

Segnette Landing Restaurant, Westwego, LA Report #480

Besides being an expert eater, I also happen to be a pretty good cook. I’m cooking a chicken dish that also calls for shrimp.

This place is only a couple blocks outside of the French Quarter. The last time I came here was with my daughter, who was in high school at the time. She’s now in her 30’s. That’s how long it’s been.
