MeMe’s Bar & Grille, Chalmette, LA Report #486

You see that map in the second picture above? See that little blue dot right under the “S” in “Orleans”? That’s my house. See the red dot right over the word “Chalmette”? That’s where this restaurant is. Short drive, right? Well, it would be if it wasn’t for that dumb little thing they call the… Continue reading MeMe’s Bar & Grille, Chalmette, LA Report #486

Cafe Aquarius, Chalmette, LA Report #468

I found a very quaint little joint down in St. Bernard Parish. It’s right down the street from the Chalmette Battlefield, which is where the Battle of New Orleans was fought. That famous battle was memorialized in this solemn song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50_iRIcxsz0 First restaurant I’ve eaten at with a bookstore in it. I guess you could… Continue reading Cafe Aquarius, Chalmette, LA Report #468

China Moon, Chalmette, LA Report #455

Today we ended up in St. Bernard Parish around lunch time. We had no idea what we wanted for lunch, then Secret Thai came to mind. They are great! But then we looked it up and it’s closed on Sundays. After thinking of that place we had our taste buds set on Asian food. We… Continue reading China Moon, Chalmette, LA Report #455

Secret Thai Restaurant, Chalmette, LA Report #422

This place is located in an area known as Chalmette, down in St. Bernard Parish. When I think of St. Bernard, I think of seafood. In fact, I used to fish and crab down here a lot. The Parish is 2,159 square miles, of which only 378 are land. 1,781 square miles are water! So… Continue reading Secret Thai Restaurant, Chalmette, LA Report #422

The Palms too, Arabi, LA Report #314

  There’s a lot of history around this place.  If you’ve ever used Domino’s sugar, there’s a good chance it came from the refinery right across the street.  We grow a lot of sugarcane here in Louisiana, and since this refinery is the largest in the western hemisphere, I’m willing to bet most of it… Continue reading The Palms too, Arabi, LA Report #314

Quitutes Cuisine & Bar, Arabi, LA Report #290

This is a Brazilian restaurant located in Arabi, Louisiana.  Never heard of Arabi, La.?  Don’t worry.  A lot of people in Southeast Louisiana have never heard of Arabi!  It’s located in St. Bernard Parish just across the Parish line from New Orleans.  In fact, this place is pretty much in walking distance of the late,… Continue reading Quitutes Cuisine & Bar, Arabi, LA Report #290

Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193

I don’t get down into St. Bernard parish much, but when I do I eat at Rocky and Carlo’s!  I’m not sure about this place, though.  If you look at the second picture above you’ll see they advertise “Ladies Invited”.  I think that’s a mistake.  It’s probably all downhill from here. BUT, since I had… Continue reading Rocky & Carlo’s, Chalmette, LA Report #193
