Banh Mi Boys, Metairie, LA Report #180

  This place has an address of 5001 Airline Dr., but if you’re driving down Airline looking for it, you might miss it.  It’s off Airline a bit, on Transcontinental Dr., right across the street from Short Stop Poboys .  But I tell you what.  After eating the sandwiches here, I’ll always opt for this… Continue reading Banh Mi Boys, Metairie, LA Report #180

Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

  Can’t decided between Vietnamese or Chinese food?  Don’t stress it.  Come here and have both.  This place is located less than a block off the Westbank Expressway in Gretna, but I drove by over 1,000 times never knowing it was there.  If you’re driving towards the river on the ground level of the expressway,… Continue reading Nine Roses, Gretna, LA Report #167

Namese, New Orleans, LA Report #132

  This is a Vietnamese restaurant.  They describe themselves as bridging the gap between the markets of Vietnam and the streets of New Orleans.  I don’t really care about the markets of Vietnam.  I just want good food, so let’s get right to that!

August Moon, Harvey, LA Report #39

I’ve been coming to this place for decades.  I started going to the original uptown New Orleans location in the 1980’s, then started coming to this location after I moved to the Westbank of New Orleans 20 years ago.  Besides Chinese they also offer a Vietnamese menu, although I’ve never tried their Vietnamese food. I… Continue reading August Moon, Harvey, LA Report #39
