The Big Easy, NOLA, The Crescent City…whatever you call it there's one thing that isn't up for debate. New Orleans is one of the greatest food cities around! Rather than try to put it into words, I thought a photo journey through our recent trip would be more appropriate. If you missed them, check out my New Orleans Foodie Itinerary and New Orleans Nightlife Guide.
Go ahead and take a spin through our foodie photo tour below…you'll be planning your own foodie visit to New Orleans in no time!
First things first…breakfast. SavoryGirl's favorite meal of the day. I have to say that any city that serves grits alongside most breakfasts is an immediate win…but beyond the creamy, buttery grits we had some amazing breakfast. Pulled Pork Cakes over Mustard Greens with Poached Eggs Creole Hollandaise, Grits and a Biscuit (EAT). Strawberry Shortcake Cornmeal Pancakes (EAT). Banana Fosters French Toast with Boudin Sausage (Surrey's) Yup, this is a fantastic breakfast town!
I love me some oysters and I have to say New Orleans had some of the biggest, plumpest oysters I've had in a long time. So salty-sweet perfect and plentiful…which means cheap! If I had more time I would have had oysters every day I was there…those you see above are from Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House…sit at the bar, order a drink and enjoy the atmosphere of local oysters being shucked and served right before you. I really loved this place and highly recommend it.
