Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

This place describes their food as authentic Japanese food with a hint of Cajun spice. That intrigued me, so I put it on my list of restaurants I wanted to try some time back. Then last night I saw a glowing review of it online, which pushed me to get in here today for lunch.… Continue reading Ajun Cajun, New Orleans, LA Report #397

Barrow’s Catfish, New Orleans, LA Report #394

This place is synonymous in New Orleans with fried catfish. It was originally opened in 1943 at a different location, and initially they only served fried catfish and potato salad. That menu expanded, but hurricane Katrina closed them down in 2005. After a long hiatus, they reopened at this location. Long ago (I’m talking the… Continue reading Barrow’s Catfish, New Orleans, LA Report #394

Frankie & Johnny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #392

Located a stones throw from the Mississippi river, this place has been around since 1942. That’s a long time! I bet the sign hanging in front is older than me. Cozy place. When you walk in the first thing you see is the bar. If I lived in the neighborhood and was a drinker, I… Continue reading Frankie & Johnny’s, New Orleans, LA Report #392

Port Orleans Brewing Co., New Orleans, LA Report #391

I’m a long time die hard Saints fan. For anyone who doesn’t know, the Saints are our National Football League team here in New Orleans.

He was a great player and a great guy, so I’ve been wanting to patronize… Continue reading Port Orleans Brewing Co., New Orleans, LA Report #391

Golden Gate Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #390

As of Friday last week I had never tried Peruvian food. At least not that I could remember. I rectified that by going to Tito’s Ceviche & Pisco. As of today, I had never tried Colombian food. I didn’t plan to fix that anytime soon but this place popped up on my radar. I pulled… Continue reading Golden Gate Bistro, New Orleans, LA Report #390

The Company Burger, New Orleans, LA Report #355

I ate at this place maybe 5 years ago, before I started doing these reports. I had the lamb burger and loved it. No idea why I haven’t come back until today, but better late than never.
