Panda Palace Buffet, Gulfport, MS Report #511

Ok, you’re probably saying, “A Chinese Buffet? You’re really reporting on one of THOSE”? Yes, I am. Let me tell you a little story. Not sure if I ever told y’all before but I was a Navy Reservist.

Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

For months now we’ve been trying to eat at a place out here in Metairie called Fusion Café. A friend of mine told me they make a shrimp pho that’s delicious! The first time we tried to go there, according to their website they were open. When we got there they were closed. We ended… Continue reading Daiwa Sushi Bar & Japanese Cuisine, Metairie, LA Report #509

Golden Dragon Chinese Buffet, Slidell, LA Report #489

This report will be short. I was in Slidell for some job training. The previous night I had an excellent dinner at Restaurant Cote. I had a long day and homework to do, so I needed something quick. What’s quicker than a Chinese buffet? So, without any further ado, here’s the food! They didn’t feed… Continue reading Golden Dragon Chinese Buffet, Slidell, LA Report #489

Oishii Sushi House, New Orleans, LA Report #474

I’m sure a lot of people aren’t even aware this place exists. It’s on a busy street, but all the way at the end of a little strip mall, and hidden behind a gas station and the Olive Branch Café. Basically, impossible to see from the street. The only reason I knew it was back… Continue reading Oishii Sushi House, New Orleans, LA Report #474

Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Today was my son’s birthday. He, like me, is a sushi lover. I heard a lot of good things about this place but neither of us had tried it yet, so I invited him for a sushi birthday feast! Let’s back up about a week. That’s when I invited him. He was going to a… Continue reading Kanno, Metairie, LA Report #454

Shogun, Metairie, LA Report #439

I’ve reviewed numerous sushi joints in and around the New Orleans area, and can’t believe I’ve never reviewed this one. Why you ask? Because when this place opened in 1981 it was the very first place in the New Orleans area to have a sushi bar. Other restaurants had served sushi, but didn’t have a… Continue reading Shogun, Metairie, LA Report #439

Café Zen, Gretna, LA Report #393

There’s a few restaurants in this little strip mall. Banana Blossom used to be located a few doors down from here until they moved. But then Jasmine Rice, another good Thai place, moved into their vacated spot. Being a regular customer of those places I kept seeing this restaurant, saying I’d give it a try… Continue reading Café Zen, Gretna, LA Report #393

Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Sushi for lunch today! This place is located on the bottom floor of a Condo/Apartment building in the Lower Garden District of New Orleans. Honestly, until today I never even knew it was in there. My dining partner is a fan of this place, and their Poseidon Roll. Nice looking restaurant. I guess the bar… Continue reading Poseidon, New Orleans, LA Report #353

Wasabi, New Orleans, LA Report #325

This place is located in the Marigny neighborhood of New Orleans, which is right next to the French Quarter. We came here today because I had something I hadn’t used in a while. A Groupon! I forget when I bought it, but I think it was supposed to expire in May or June, but thanks… Continue reading Wasabi, New Orleans, LA Report #325
