To kick things off... New Orleans at its BEST!

I was lucky enough to have lived in New Orleans in 2007-2008, and my favorite thing about the city was the food! To kick this blog off, take a look at some of my favorite foods from my time in New Orleans- the most fantastic city in the U.S.!

Beignets at Cafe du Monde- What's not to love about French doughnuts smothered in powdered sugar! And at only a few bucks for three, it's a steal!

Potato crusted gulf fish smothered in crawfish etoufee at New Orleans' BEST restaurant- Jacque-Imo's Cafe.

Jambalaya from Jacque-Imo's, an incredible appetizer that is in fact an entree... Unless you're in New Orleans!

Another Jacque-Imo's appetizer- crabmeat stuffed shrimp!

More Jacque-Imo's Cafe... Three best friends and a table full of food and wine.

Hurricanes- a sweet fruit punch laced with Puerto Rican rum at Pat O'Brians in the Quarter.

And finally, the best sushi I've ever had from Rock 'n Sake in the Warehouse district. From left- Hawaii 5-O (coconut shrimp wrapped in mango and avocado), LSU (tempura shrimp wrapped in fresh tuna and avocado) and Hawaiian Sunset (spicy snow crab wrapped in fresh mango and salmon). I ate this entire plate for lunch! YUM!

  1. Sarah, I love your blog (almost) as much as I love Cafe du Monde beignets and coffee! After my first trip to New Orleans at age eight, I became obsessed with the tasty treats and was always begging my mom to replicate them at home...needless to say the real-deal in your pic looks much better!
