Moo Moo’s Frozen Custard, Mandeville, LA Report #339

Ever since we took a trip and discovered Rita’s (which we don’t have in New Orleans) we’ve been fans of frozen custard. So after lunch at Isabella’s Pizzeria, which is right at the other end of this strip mall, we had to stop in. Unfortunately you can’t dine in here right now due to the… Continue reading Moo Moo’s Frozen Custard, Mandeville, LA Report #339

Isabella’s Pizzeria, Mandeville, LA Report #338

We love cutting down a real tree for Christmas. Today was opening day for our favorite Christmas tree farm, which happens to be located across Lake Pontchartrain, north of New Orleans. So we crossed the longest, continuous bridge over water in the world, the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, and of course that made us hungry so… Continue reading Isabella’s Pizzeria, Mandeville, LA Report #338

Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

I have a confession to make. I sometimes eat fast food fried chicken. There. I said it. Felt good to get that off my chest. So I went out to get some to bring home for dinner. For some reason the door was locked so you couldn’t go inside, and there were about 10 cars… Continue reading Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

Santa Fe, New Orleans, LA Report #336

You ever walk down the sidewalk and think, “I’d like to sit out here and eat in that little strip of grass (or dirt) between the sidewalk and the street”? Well, now’s your chance to do it! If you come to Santa Fe. This place is located on one of the prettiest streets in the… Continue reading Santa Fe, New Orleans, LA Report #336

Sala, New Orleans, LA Report #335

This building has been several different restaurants over the years. I remember eating here when it was a Ground Pati back in the 80’s. But now it’s a place called Sala. Nice looking place, with a few tables outside in front if you prefer dining outdoors. Plenty of comfy seating inside. There’s a burger and… Continue reading Sala, New Orleans, LA Report #335

Bayou Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #334

Let me tell you how I found out about this place. I have a rewards credit card for a popular hotel chain. Last month they sent me this email saying if you dine at certain participating restaurants and use their credit card, they’ll give you a bunch of reward points. NOLA Caye was on that… Continue reading Bayou Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #334

KY’s Olde Towne Bicycle Shop, Slidell, LA Report #333

The city of Slidell is located across the eastern side of Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. This place is in a section of the city referred to as “Olde Towne”. Quaint little area. And the building this restaurant is located in has a long history, dating back to 1902! It’s at the bottom of the… Continue reading KY’s Olde Towne Bicycle Shop, Slidell, LA Report #333

Luca Eats, New Orleans, LA Report #332

This place is located back in a residential neighborhood, well off any main drag. If you see that cemetery, which is right across the street from the restaurant, you know you’re close! If you look at that cemetery (3rd pic) you’ll notice the graves are above ground. That’s because here in New Orleans we’re below… Continue reading Luca Eats, New Orleans, LA Report #332

Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

When I first heard of this place I thought it was a Chinese restaurant. It’s actually a Vietnamese restaurant, but besides the fact there’s Pho on the menu, it’s hard to tell. Their website describes the food as, “Saigon’s Southern Vietnamese flavors, modernized with influences from French and American cuisine; all made with the freshest… Continue reading Café Minh, New Orleans, LA Report #331

Bradford House, Oklahoma City, OK Report #330

This one will be short and sweet because this is more of a hotel report than a food report. Everything was good, but nothing was really extraordinary about the food. We were in Oklahoma City visiting my daughter. She had stayed in this hotel on a trip up there and really loved it, so we… Continue reading Bradford House, Oklahoma City, OK Report #330
