Taste of New Orleans

Dat Dog

Really what drove me to this place was the appearance. The restaurant was painted with beautiful colors and filled with vibrant lights.

When I approached the menu I was so amazed by the different meats you can make into a sausage. They had an Alligator dog (which is the one I chose) or even a crawfish dog! After you pick the meat type you want, you then choose the toppings which is far from just ketchup and mustard. Due to the fact we where in New Orleans it was not surprise when I saw crawfish and a Cajun sauce as a topping.

I honestly can not remember what all I put on my dog but believe me it was to die for.

Dat Dog is located on Magazine Street which is basically the artsy district of NOLA

I absolutely  can not wait to go back!

We Dat Food Truck

Ok so I came across this place when I was looking for a good ole “hood plate”. If you do not know what a hood plate is I would love to explain. A hood plate is basically a BIG meal that you get from the hood for cheap. I mean the plate has to be loaded with food and poorly presented. As I searched across Instagram I found We Dat Food Truck. The Instagram pictures looked just right for me, so I headed there.

  1. The location is definitely not in the hood, lol (not a problem)
  2. The menu was pretty basic which is sometime good .
  3. The PRICE was definitely not CHEAP. (but hey we all tryna make money)
  4. Taste was honestly just OK ! I’ve had better!

I got the Wazzam Wings w/ cheese, bacon, and jalapeño fries.

I’m not pressed to go back but it’ll be cool for you to try.

Mardi Gras 2017

Its Nola ! We going live babayy!!

(Do to the fact that this blog post is so late, I’m just going to talk briefly and post pictures in this blog and do two food reviews in another.)

Its no secret that I love travelling and every time I do I get the chance to meet a lot of new people which is my favorite part. It always awakens me to the fact that we live in a world full of many different people with different cultures, food, and even slang.

Ok obviously I’m the fabulous one in the pink! And the rest is the good group of people I met.

 

I feel that New Orleans is a good place to experience because it has so much culture and history. NOLA is a place for people that like the city but still like the homie and friendly feel from people. The complete opposite of Vegas, New York, or Cali. The streets are filled with people but friendly people. Even if you do not go for Mardi Gras, New Orleans is still the place to visit. Its a PARTY every night! Especially on Bourbon.

I truly enjoyed myself this year, Ill just let the pictures tell the story!

Checkers

I usually see Checkers on the movies or how people rave about it on Facebook. So I was more than excited when I came across it while visiting Florida! I heard they were known for thier fries, I wasn’t starving so that’s what I decided to get. The menu was full of cheap deals but I just stuck with fries . The fries were good in my opinion they taste exactly like Popayes fries! To experience  Checlers you should go on your next trip to Florida !!!

 

Sugar Factory

If you don’t know the Sugar Factory is known to be a celebrity “hot spot”  & also known for their  fish bowl drinks that smoke up the glass when the  liquor  is poured in ! 

Let me start by saying we waited 40 minutes to be seated !! May I add my party & I had reservations ! 

Oh! The drink was 30$!! So we waited another 40 minutes for a $30 drink!

(The prices were not on the menu! So I was unaware of the price & no I didn’t think to ask because $30 was not what I was expecting )

BBQ SHRIMP

Surprise Surprise !! It’s not actual bbq, with bbq sauce as I imagine. But I heard it was a must have in New Orleans so I tried it. The shrimp was good you could really taste the white win it was marinated in.
