Galatoire’s, New Orleans, LA Report #300

  Back in July of 2017 I started doing this food blog just for fun.  Now, three years later, guess what?  I’m still doing it just for fun because no way in hell anybody would pay me anything for this bullcorn I write! Hard to believe this is report #300.  Each 100th report I make… Continue reading Galatoire’s, New Orleans, LA Report #300

Pacos Tacos, Metairie, LA Report #299

This place sells the authentic, Mexican street type tacos.  Until I was in my 40’s, the only type of tacos I had tried were the Taco Bell type tacos, with the crunchy, corn shell.  Then after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, numerous taco trucks showed up in New Orleans, and my eyes were opened!  I… Continue reading Pacos Tacos, Metairie, LA Report #299

Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

This place is nowhere near nothing!  Tucked away on a back street, you’ve got to know it’s back there to find it.  It’s the kind of place that has to have good food to stay in business, because they can’t count on a lot of traffic passing by to bring new customers in.  I heard… Continue reading Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297

There’s a local restaurant critic who says you should never go to a restaurant as soon as it opens.  Give them six months or so to get their act together, and then go.  I happen to work right down the street from this place, and remember when this corner was just an empty lot.  I… Continue reading Gianna, New Orleans, LA Report #297

Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Back in March of 2019 I discovered this place called the American Pie Diner.  Loved the place!  I was going to be a regular.  So of course it promptly went out of business. At least the building didn’t stay vacant long.  Daisy Dukes opened another location there. I knew about their French Quarter location, but… Continue reading Daisy Dukes Diner, Kenner, LA Report #296

Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295

There’s a restaurant right down the street from here called New Orleans Food & Spirits which everyone raves about.  They don’t take reservations.  Strictly first come first serve. That’s where we tried to go, and they told us it’d be a 25 minute wait.  With the number of people waiting for a table, looked more… Continue reading Mama Thai, Metairie, LA Report #295

3 Happiness Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #294

This place is located in a strip mall in Gretna, right down the street from one of my favorite Vietnamese restaurants, Tan Dinh.  The menu here offers Chinese and Vietnamese food.  A foodie friend of mine, who happens to be of the Asian persuasion, recommended it, so my hopes were high I’d have a great… Continue reading 3 Happiness Restaurant, Gretna, LA Report #294

Dab’s Bistro, Metairie, LA Report #293

The man in the portrait above is Chef Duke LoCicero.  He’s a legend in New Orleans.  He owned a restaurant in the French Quarter named Café Giovanni for 26 years.  It closed in 2017.  I loved that place.  One dish he was famous for was called Oysters Giovanni.  Fried oysters on a plate covered with… Continue reading Dab’s Bistro, Metairie, LA Report #293

Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #292

Located on the very western edge of the French Quarter, their website says they’re in the oldest building on Canal St.  There used to be a Wendy’s Hamburger restaurant in this building, but you’d never know it now.  Place looks really nice! So the name of the place is the Creole House.  I know a… Continue reading Creole House Restaurant & Oyster Bar, New Orleans, LA Report #292

Gerald’s Famous Burgers & Donuts, Arabi, LA Report #291

We had just finished lunch at this Brazilian place called Quitutes, and were hankering something sweet for dessert.  I rarely get into St. Bernard Parish but had heard good things about this donut places, so we headed over for a dozen to bring home. Now, it was about 2:00 PM when we walked in the… Continue reading Gerald’s Famous Burgers & Donuts, Arabi, LA Report #291
