I can’t even begin to tell you how good these char-grilled oysters were. Where do I start!?

First let’s go with the smell. As soon as the waiter came around, all you smell is the cheese goodness- of the parmesan cheese that is sprinkled on top. The shells are wicked hot to the touch, so careful! I know your mouth is watering, but have a little self control. It’s hard. They smell so good.

Well once it has cooled down enough that you can manage to grab an oyster and scoop one out, GO! GO GO GO! The result is a perfectly cooked oyster in your mouth that is covered in cheese and oil. OMG. I don’t know what else they sprinkle on these. Maybe some garlic? Olive oil? Whatever it is, it is amazing. You definitely want to take advantage of the bread and dip it in all that oil. YUM.

The raw oysters were also real good. Some of the best raw oysters I’ve ever had in my life.

Yes, I went all out. For my entrée, I ordered the soft shell crab. This thing was pretty big…and scary. I know what crabs look like, but having it just chilling right in front of you looking like a huge spider was starting to freak me out. I overcame my fear and just went for it. The crab was pretty tasty, but I prefer it tempura style. After a while the fried stuff gets to you.

This was by far my favorite food during my Mardi Gras trip to New Orleans, LA. Char-grilled oysters are a MUST HAVE. There is almost always a long line outside of this place, but it moves surprisingly quickly- within 15 minutes we were seated and the wait is SO worth it!

CAFÉ DU MONDE

Ahhhhh the famous Café Du Monde.

Loved this spot. Not only are the beignets and coffee amazing, but it was so nice to sit here in the morning.

IMG_4156We came here on two separate occasions. Both times were at about 9am- NO LINE BABY!

IMG_4157The menu is pretty basic, whatever is on this little napkin dispenser.

So, we ordered a few beignets and café au laits.

IMG_4158If you can’t already tell, they were absofuckinglutely amazing. Beignets are basically the French take on doughnuts. Its like a mix between fried dough and cake. It may look like there is a shit load of powdered sugar on top, but it is all necessary. Any sugar left on the plate either gets dipped in or poured into your coffee. Mmmm.

If you’re in NOLA, visiting this place is a must. But FYI- if you don’t go early, you will be stuck in a 30 min+ line. So get out of bed you lazy hungover fuck!

Now look at this beautiful picture of the Mississippi River.

THE MUFFULETTA

This BITCHIN’ muffuletta came from a place called The Butcher down in Nawlins.

The muffuletta is the best mother fuckin’ cold cut sandwich I’ve ever had. In fact, it wasn’t cold at all. The sesame bread was toasted and the meats were freshly smoked.

slice of muffulettaOH YEAH.

So I got an order all to myself, thinking it wouldn’t be an entire pie. This could totes be split by two people. OH WELL. I ate all that shit up anyway!

IMG_4375It’s got some ham, salami, bacon, olive stuffs, melted cheese, and who knows what else. Maybe heroin? SO GOOD.

I don’t really know how else to describe this sandwich besides the fact that it was real tasty. What ever was in it almost had a chorizo like taste. BOMB.

IMG_4369OH, and the meat is fresh as fuck too.

I washed it all down with a cream soda. #throwback

cream soda

Point is- if you’re going to NOLA and want an unfuckingbelievable muffuletta, you GOTTA get it from The Butcher.
