Cafe Du Monde: Of course we got beignets. It seemed like whenever I would mention that I was going to New Orleans to anyone, they told me that I just HAD to try the beignets. While I do admit that they were tasty, it wasn’t unlike anything that I’ve ever tried in my life. It kind of reminded me of a funnel cake. (So if you’ve had a funnel cake then you aren’t missing out much) Nonetheless, Cafe Du Monde is a cool spot. The service was nice, fast, and I appreciated the experience.
Later that day we ate at a spot called ‘The Crazy Lobster Bar and Grill‘ and also took a boat tour where they provided a meal while we were on the water. I felt like I couldn’t get enough of red beans and rice, I LOVED the jambalaya, fried okra, and shrimp po boys sandwiches! ALL OF THE FOOD WAS SPECTACULAR!
The next day we came across the Bennachin Restaurant ‘A taste of Africa’ it was a pleasant surprise. This food was amaze balls! I love spicy food and the chicken dish that I selected, hit the spot! I got the Cope ni Cone with boneless chicken, broccoli, ginger, garlic sauce and rice. It was just enough food I LOVED IT! When you hit up New Orleans I would definitely recommend trying this place!
We also tried crawfish at a spot called Cajun Seafood. It was my first time eating crawfish and although it was alot of work for a little bit of meat it was super yummy! We coupled it with corn on the cob and potatoes. The juices in the crawfish were very spicy and set my tongue on fire but I couldn’t stop eating them lol.
