If New Orleans is not number one on your list of foodie town to visit, you should be ashamed of yourself. With its mix of Cajun, Creole, Spanish, First Nations and French roots, it’s easy to see why this is one of the culinary capitals of the United States, if not of the world. With an unrepresented access to exotic spices and influx of influences from many countries, this lead to an array of dishes so different from one another yet so tasty. Don’t waste your time and visit a typical New Orleans restaurant when you have the chance. You won’t regret it.
Discover the Chargrilled Oysters
You heard that right, Oysters on the grill. By adding spices, butter, cheese and garlic and putting it on the grill, this heightened the naturally salty flavour of the oysters. It is beyond tasty and unctuous. It won’t be like anything you’ve tried before and they’re not as expensive as regular oysters. Everyone wins!
The Famous French Beignets
It might be a New Orleans delicacies but every French people know what I’m talking about: the famous French Beignets. First introduced by the French settlers in the early 1700s. A more sophisticated version of its cousin the “doughnut”, it’s a yeasted dough deep fried and covered lightly in powdered sugar with some vanilla spices. It’s sweet, fresh and fills you up French style. Definitely a good choice for our friends with food limitations as it is a vegetarian dish as well as kosher.
Rice and Red Beans
We’ve got to admit this meal doesn’t sound too appetising. It sounds and looks like a meal made from a broke freshman in university kitchen on a $2 budget. Don’t be fooled by its simple name, it is one of New Orleans most famous dish. It tastes like home and paradise. Made with leftover pork, beans and rice, this will fill you up for days and create a special foodie memory. I’m eating them now while I research casino reviews online.
