Paris, New York, Tel Aviv, Lisbon, Venice, Staten Island are just some of the food Meccas where we’ve enjoyed some amazing cuisine. Adding New Orleans to the top of the list. Ok ok maybe not Staten Island but we getting there.
The picture above says it all. Thats BBQ Shrimp at Mr B’s, aka 3 sticks of butter plus spices galore. I can still smell the aromas coming out of the dish. Partly because I’m currently wearing the shirt I wore while eating it and spattering sauce all over it. Also its the first dish my wife and I ate twice while on vacation.
Accompanying us during this trip was renowned food blogger Hummus whisperer, and renowned critic Hummus Whisperer’s wife. She’s not a food critic, just a critic.
Wherever we go we normally have our share of average and less than average meals. Not so much on this trip. Is it because I’ve spent countless hours browsing various food blogs like Chowhound to come up with what was later described as the “heart attack I can die now itinerary from hell”? Possibly. I did in fact research more than usual on this trip because unlike other trips, food had more of a purpose here. The purpose was to enjoy some of the best New Orleans has to offer and the result was, as can only be described by Borat… GREAT SUCCESS!!
This post is the first of a series of posts about New Orleans food, New Orleans cemeteries, and what to eat after visiting New Orleans cemeteries. Enjoy!
Can I purchase your soiled shirt?
Here’s the official recipe in case anyone dares to try it at home, but I can’t promise the same success:
Nice picture HW. The shirt is not for sale sorry. Besides, it was already snagged by the wife and washed. Now she wants me to wash my hands. Women schwomen you know what I’m saying?
