Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Even though I’m WAYYYYY to young to remember 1950 style diners, I love going to them. I love the old fashioned decor and the 1950’s music they play to match. I’ve seen Frostops around New Orleans all my life and had no idea if it was a national, or local restaurant chain. After a quick… Continue reading Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Amore Bakery and Café, Gretna, LA Report #375

Just last weekend I was next door to this place having an excellent Mexican lunch at El Gato Negro. I walked by this place when I left and thought about stopping in, but I was too stuffed to even eat a pecan. BUT!! Even though I don’t have much to write on, I made a… Continue reading Amore Bakery and Café, Gretna, LA Report #375

Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

When I woke up today it was raining. Most people wake up and think about what the day might hold for them. I wake up and immediately think about what I’m going to eat. For some reason the rain put me in the mood for Pho. Since I was hungry, I headed to the nearest… Continue reading Asian Taste, Harvey, LA Report #374

El Gato Negro, Gretna, LA Report #373

El Gato Negro means “The Black Cat” in Spanish. I’ve been hearing people praise this place forever. Long ago I tried the French Quarter location, and honestly, it’s been so long I can’t even remember what I had. Never mind if it was good or not. A coworker of mine came in weeks ago talking… Continue reading El Gato Negro, Gretna, LA Report #373

Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

I have a very dear friend, much older than me, who appreciates the finer things in life. But totally unlike me, she’s filthy rich, so she can afford them. She’s so rich she could have lobster and foie gras sandwiches, with imported Russian caviar mayonnaise, served on gold infused French bread, with fried white truffle… Continue reading Caffe! Caffe!, Metairie, LA Report #372

This place is located in Old Gretna, also knows as the Historic District of Gretna. The city of Gretna is located on the Westbank of the Mississippi River.

Oak Oven, Harahan, LA Report #370

I live in New Orleans and haven’t dined in Harahan in a some time. These reports I do are hugely popular, and I don’t want to neglect my Harahan readers. I’m sure I’ve got at least a few million there! I keep a list of restaurants I want to try, and this place was on… Continue reading Oak Oven, Harahan, LA Report #370

Elizabeth’s, New Orleans, LA Report #369

I’ve been wanting to try this place for some time. We actually ended up in this neighborhood trying to eat at a different restaurant, but it was closed. According to Google it opened at noon, but they really opened at 4:00 PM. Never trust Google. I should have known better. Nice looking little place with… Continue reading Elizabeth’s, New Orleans, LA Report #369

Jalapeños Mexican Cuisine, Belle Chasse, LA Report #368

This place is located at the end of a very short strip mall on LA Hwy 23, also known as Belle Chasse Hwy. Keep heading south on that highway and it dead ends at the Gulf of Mexico, at the “toe” of Southeast Louisiana. I pass this restaurant pretty often going down to the Navy… Continue reading Jalapeños Mexican Cuisine, Belle Chasse, LA Report #368

Pokéworks, Metairie, LA Report #367

The word for what’s served here is pronounced “poh-KAY”, and rhymes with “okay”. I looked it up to see what the definition was and found, “jab or prod (someone or something), especially with one’s finger”. I quickly realized I looked up POKE, and corrected that. Poke is, “diced raw fish served either as an appetizer… Continue reading Pokéworks, Metairie, LA Report #367
