“I love New York, I love San Francisco but there’s no place like New Orleans. It’s got the best food. It’s got the best music. It’s got the best people.”
I had the opportunity to spend a few days in New Orleans this past weekend and I ate some amazing food! I had to post about it! Hope you enjoy and if you’re ever in New Orleans….
Alligator Boudin- rémoulade, chipotle aïoli and Crystal butter
This restaurant came as a recommendation from our hotel concierge. Super yummy! One of the best appetizers I’ve ever had!
Pascal’s Manale is known for it’s BBQ Shrimp. They say it’s the home of “The Original BBQ Shrimp” and that it has the best BBQ Shrimp in New Orleans. Verdict…. I totally agree! The BBQ Shrimp was amazing! BEST shrimp I’ve ever had!
Unfortunately, that is about all I would recommend here. The rest of the food was decent at best BUT I would tell anyone to go here if only just for an order of the BBQ Shrimp!
Ruby’s Basic Breakfast
This restaurant was just a few blocks from our hotel and I enjoyed an amazing home style breakfast. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, by the time we left the wait was up to 45 minutes! Also, this restaurant has a cool history, it originated in 2008 and was inspired by Hurricane Katrina. They proudly represent the phrase “There’s No Place Like Home”
