Eating out: NoLa, Day…

This is only the second entry for my New Orleans adventures, I mean work week, but I’ve been here for almost 4 days now. Technical difficulties kept me from giving you a play-by-play, but i will try to make up for lost time.

Yesterday I had an awesome omelette for breakfast at a little cafe right across from the hotel. I didn’t take pictures of it, I’m sorry to say, but it was perfect. Tasso ham, still moist in the middle. Beautiful! And they also gave me the best cup of coffee I’ve had on this trip.

So I thought I would try to top yesterday’s breakfast today. I headed out to Mother’s, a landmark in these here parts. You know how sometimes you hear a lot about a place, then it doesn’t live up to the hype? Mother’s is nothing like that.

I decided against another omelette, even though the menu was tempting me with a crawfish etouffe omelette. Instead, I went for the basics: 2 eggs, grits, biscuits and their homemade sausage. Let me tell you, when something this simple is that good, you know the place is a winner.

Now, I have to walk this off. I’ll be back!


Eating Out: NoLa

Hello my friends! Have you missed me? I hope so, because I’ve missed you! I’m away. This week I’m working in New Orleans. Yeah. That’s it. I’m working. 

The awful view from my room

And since I’m working so hard, I can’t produce proper posts for you, but what I’ll do is give you a play-by-play as I eat my way around town. It’s a tough job, but I’ve got to do it. Some of these may even make it another appearance in a few weeks as I attempt to recreate them. 

I arrived on Tuesday and had computer drama, so I couldn’t start this then. But…, here’s what was for dinner. 

N’awlins Barbecue Shrimp 


Today at lunch I had fried shrimp and oysters. Yum! 

That's just spicy tomato juice in the background.


I will keep you posted as I eat around. Commander’s Palace tonight…
