St. Roch Market, New Orleans, LA Report #183

  This building dates back to 1875 when it was constructed as a state owned, open air market.  Since then it’s been several different things.  I had my first soft shelled crab poboy here back in the late 1970’s, when it was a seafood market and sandwich place.  After Hurricane Katrina in 2005, it sat… Continue reading St. Roch Market, New Orleans, LA Report #183

Big Ez Seafood, Gretna, LA Report #182

  When I walked in here for dinner tonight a really had my mind set on some boiled crawfish.  I haven’t had any yet this year.  When I heard they were $6.89 a pound I changed my mind.  More than I was willing to pay.
