“New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin.”

Enjoy part two of my New Orleans food experience! Who Dat!

Cafe Beignet

Famous Beignets

Breakfast Sandwich – Scrambled egg, bacon & white cheddar on bagel or croissant.

Cajun Hashbrowns – Andouille sausage, potatoes, bell pepper & red onion. Served with scrambled egg & french bread.

Although we did have breakfast at the famous Cafe Du Monde, I would say the beignets were the same if not better at Cafe Beignet. Plus unlike Cafe Du Monde, where you can only order beignets, Cafe Beignet offered several other yummy breakfast items. We also felt like our breakfast here was more relaxed. Cafe Du Monde was super busy and high turnover seemed to be the priorty.

Acme Oyster House

Chargrilled Oysters
(1/2 doz.)

We walked past this place on our way dinner at the Bourbon House and the line to get in was crazy long! Like an hour minimum long! I pulled out my iPhone and opened up my trusty Yelp app (Yelp has rarely steered me wrong!) and Acme Oyster House had an impressive 4 star rating.  We decided to give it a try the next day. We went at an obscure time and only had to wait about 15 minutes. And well… Best.Oysters.Ever. So good that we even ordered another 1/2 dozen after devouring the first 1/2 dozen. We left agreeing that we would have waited an hour for a plate of these oysters.

Gumbo

We stumbled upon this place after being turned away from another restaurant known for their gumbo because their wait time exceed their closing time. We ordered the Cajun sampler and the gumbo arrived first. We had high expectations for the gumbo and it certainly did not disappoint! It was super yummy and lead to a conversation on what makes a good “rue”.

Pat O’s Hurricane cocktail

Lastly, you can’t visit New Orleans and not have a Hurricane and what better place to do so than Pat O’brien’s, home of the original hurricane! We went on a Saturday night  during one of their dueling piano shows. So fun! And this drink was super yummy!
