Big Easy Eatin

Filed under: Personal — Neil @ 10:56 pm

We spent the past 2 days in New Orleans.  We visit there mainly to eat.  The problem is that we never have enough time (nor $) to eat everywhere we’d like to eat.  This is what we opted for this trip:

  • Friday Lunch – Amanda decided to do some shopping at Lakeside Mall when we arrived so I ate lunch @ Chick-fil-a while she shopped through lunch
  • Friday Supper – Crawfish Balls as an appetizer (a must when you visit Deanies) & a 1/2 Seafood Platter @ Deanies (1/2 platter is more than the 2 of us can eat)
  • Dessert – Beignets & Cafe au Lait @ Cafe du Monde
  • Saturday Breakfast – Omelets @ Mena’s
  • Saturday Lunch – Palace Cafe – our 1 nice meal for the weekend
  • Saturday Supper – Taqueria Corona; I know you don’t associate Mexican w/ New Orleans, but we love this place.  We were stuffed from all of the previous meals, so we opted for tacos rather than our usual California Burritos
  • Saturday Dessert – Cafe du Monde; we picked up beignets & cafe au lait as we headed back to Clinton
