Coffee &, Marrero, LA Report #478

Marrero is located just south of New Orleans, on the WestBank of the Mississippi River. I live in the part of New Orleans that’s on the Westbank (called Algiers), so it’s not far from my house at all. I’ve seen this place several times, and always thought it was just a little donut shop. Well,… Continue reading Coffee &, Marrero, LA Report #478

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

Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

I have a confession to make. I sometimes eat fast food fried chicken. There. I said it. Felt good to get that off my chest. So I went out to get some to bring home for dinner. For some reason the door was locked so you couldn’t go inside, and there were about 10 cars… Continue reading Hooks, Terrytown, LA Report #337

Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

This place is nowhere near nothing!  Tucked away on a back street, you’ve got to know it’s back there to find it.  It’s the kind of place that has to have good food to stay in business, because they can’t count on a lot of traffic passing by to bring new customers in.  I heard… Continue reading Hong Minh Restaurant, Harvey, LA Report #298

Margaritas Mexican Cuisine, Gretna, LA Report #275

*************** PERMANENTLY CLOSED *************** For some time now I’ve said El Paso was my favorite Mexican restaurant.  Well, after an excellent meal here tonight, El Paso has a challenger! You can drive by this place several times, like I did, and not notice it.  It’s hidden in a strip mall behind the Beef Connection Steakhouse,… Continue reading Margaritas Mexican Cuisine, Gretna, LA Report #275

Turmeric Indian Cuisine, Gretna, LA Report #264

I was trying to figure out the last time I had Indian cuisine.  I remembered it was at a place uptown called Nirvana.  I also remembered I went while I was at work.  I last worked up there in 2004, so its been over 15 years.  That’s too long to deprive my palate of any… Continue reading Turmeric Indian Cuisine, Gretna, LA Report #264

Antoine’s Famous Cakes & Pastries, Gretna, LA Report #261

I moved to the Westbank of New Orleans 22 years ago.  The Home Depot I frequent is right across the street from this bakery, and one of my favorite Mexican joints, La Fiesta, is on the same street a couple blocks away.  That being said, I’ve driven past this place a hundred times and somehow… Continue reading Antoine’s Famous Cakes & Pastries, Gretna, LA Report #261

RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

If you ignore the construction going on in front, this is a nice looking place.  I’m not sure what they’re doing with the construction, but I saw a bunch of potted plants out there, so landscaping is in the near future.  It’ll probably be nicer looking then! This place is located right on the Mississippi… Continue reading RiverShack Gretna, Gretna, LA Report #260

Dickey’s Barbeque Pit, Gretna, LA Report #259

Yes, I know this is a chain.  Yes, I know the food snobs will say I’m an idiot for eating at a chain.  And yes, I could care less.  If the food is good, I’m there! I never tried this place before.  We were in the mood for BBQ.  I live on the Westbank of… Continue reading Dickey’s Barbeque Pit, Gretna, LA Report #259
