Ok, I’m almost done with these, I swear. But, in my defense, there was really no way to cram this all into one post – there just wasn’t. Plus even if I could have, I would have saved the food for its own, because when in Nola, the food is definitely the best part.
We got down to New Orleans on Wednesday evening and immediately hit up Acme Oyster House. We just had to have chargrilled oysters and a po’boy. You guys, their roast beef po’boy is pretty much the greatest thing on earth. And their chargrilled oysters (all cooked like so the preggo could eat them) are just awesome. Of course their raw oysters are delicious too!
The next morning, we went on a quest for the King Cake Doughnut, which led us to District Donuts, Sliders and Brews. Unfortunately, they did not have the King Cake Doughnut that morning, but I got the Muses one and it was pretty much the best doughnut on earth. It was a filled one, but the filling wasn’t completely sweet — it had a cream cheesy taste to it. I definitely ate the whole thing. B got the most delicious breakfast sandwich, and we were pretty happy folks for breakfast. We walked around Magazine until we were hungry again, went to the Bulldog, where B got a flight of beer, and I got the nachos. Which were awesome.
That night after the parades, we hit up Dat Dog. Sorry, no pics from this. Was super starving and scarfed down my bacon ranch fries like there was no tomorrow.
The next morning, we hit up my most favorite Nola brunch spot, The Ruby Slipper, where I got the eggs cochon. So. Damn. Good.
Saturday morning, we decided we needed beignets, but not just any beignets, beignets of the chocolate variety — so we hit up New Orleans Coffee and Beignet Company.
All in all, I have to say, I was quite happy with our food choices. There is definitely one thing that’s the truth about New Orleans; you will never leave hungry.
