I have to say, the food in Louisiana is spot on!
After gathering a few recommendations from coworkers, my mom and I went to Big Al’s. We got the char-grilled oysters, a crawfish sandwhich, and stuffed crabs. All three were absolutely yummy.
On the way to the New Orleans airport, we decided to make a stop at the infamous Cafe Du Monde for their famous beingets. These little squares covered in powder sugar are just something else.
The lady making them was hilarious…she had a sheet of the dough cut out to put into the fryer. She was using this long skinny spatula to grab a row at a time…followed by literally flinging them into the fryer. It was quite the sight to see. None the less, the little squares came out perfectly.
