Mr. Bubbles Sandwich House, Gretna, LA Report #469

There’s a local food writer named Ian McNulty who once did a piece about places in the New Orleans area where you could get a meal for under $10. This was one of the locations he talked about. Hot sausage po-boys are very popular in New Orleans. He featured the hot sausage banh mi sandwich… Continue reading Mr. Bubbles Sandwich House, Gretna, LA Report #469

Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

I was perusing restaurant reviews and I saw one on this place. I looked it up and discovered it was in Metairie, on Metairie Rd. I’ve been down that street hundreds of times and couldn’t remember ever seeing it. Funny thing about that is I’ve been to this place called Mark Twain’s Pizza on Metairie… Continue reading Blue Line Sandwich Co., Metairie, LA Report #453

Pitt Grill, New Boston, TX Report #434

Still on my road trip, driving from New Orleans to an undisclosed location in Oklahoma. We got hungry. So as I’m driving I’m looking for anything that’s not a fast food chain, but for miles and miles that was all I saw. I was starving, and almost ready to give in and stop at a… Continue reading Pitt Grill, New Boston, TX Report #434

Abita Springs Cafe, Abita Springs, LA Report #430

It was such a beautiful day here in New Orleans we decided to take the bikes, make the voyage across the Causeway to the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain and do a little bike riding on the Tammany Trace. With my luck when we arrived there it was raining. But it soon stopped and we were… Continue reading Abita Springs Cafe, Abita Springs, LA Report #430

Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

We’re always looking for a new Sunday morning breakfast spot. Actually, since I sleep until 10:00 AM on Sundays, I actually should say “brunch” spot. We’re always in the mood for breakfast but end up not eating it until almost noon! That was the case when we decided to try this place today. When I… Continue reading Perks Coffee & Cafe, Metairie, LA Report #424

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

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

If you come to New Orleans you really should visit The National WWII Museum.  This restaurant is located… Continue reading Rosie’s On The Roof, New Orleans, LA Report #317
