Hey there fellow travelers mark here with Walters world today We’re in New Orleans, Louisiana here in Jackson Square and today what we have for you are five things you should eat when you come here to New Orleans And the thing is there’s a lot more than five things to eat when you come here And I might stretch a little bit on my five things, but the thing is when you travel You don’t always have time to eat the 100 things you have to eat in New Orleans So I want to give you are the five things you should really focus on when you come here so you make sure you have those you can enjoy some of the fantastic food and Drinking that there is here in New Orleans and the first thing you want to do is hey It’s the morning you want to have something sweet and tasty to start off with the first thing you have and the super touristy thing To have but it’s so good. You don’t care our beignets. Beignets are basically French doughnuts. It’s a puff doughnut You know dough thrown in the fryer fried up nice and greasy all hot it comes out drenched in powdered sugar And right over there. It’s Cafe Du Monde. That’s where you want to go to have it yes There’s lines to get in and yes, it is touristy, but dang it They’re so good. The other thing is beignets. You can get them all over the city It’s not a problem your hotel if they have a breakfast they might have them there, too But Cafe Du Monde go in there and have your cafe au lait and your beignet That’s like a quintessential thing you have to do when you are here, so it’s a tourist thing and a tasty thing That’s why it’s our first thing to have here the second thing to eat when you come to New Orleans is have the seafood Specifically I say have the oysters the chargrilled oysters. Oh my god, if their oysters You know would open grilled on the on on a grill. There’s like a little parmesan little crust on top with some garlic butter. Oh my god. It is so good, but it’s not just the oysters I mean you want to oysters on a half shell or the grilled ones whatever. There’s tough fried oysters There’s always use moisturizers, okay I’m gonna get I need to step back and let you know there’s more than always to sort of come to seafood Okay You might wanna have crab or the gulf fish that you can get out here is really fantastic and the thing is since you have the Gulf right there in the river you have all kinds of catfish you have all kinds of really good seafood and river food I guess you’d say that comes in here, and it kind of integrates into a lot of the dishes And that’s why the third thing I want to say to have for you is have a cup before you eat What I’m talking about is have a cup of soup Or a side dish cup of something before you have your main meal and the four main cups I want to talk about they should have really can be eaten as a meal or as a cup I usually get the cup to start off with so that I could have some more seafood or something else as a main dish But anyway the four ones you should try one there’s gumbo seafood gumbo Oh, it’s a it’s it’s a stew some rice in the bottom. Oh my god. It’s so good You have a similar thing etouffee which is also another stew it you can have when I get at etouffee I recommend getting the crawfish Etouffee that’s the way to get it That’s that’s the best kind then you have jambalaya And jambalaya is like a spicy Spanish rice kind of thing have you ever been to Spain it kind of? Reminds of a paia kind of thing you’ll have that maybe with some sausage in andouille sausage. Oh my god It’s so good You have that also then there’s the other Southern tradition of red beans and rice Any of those four have that cup you will be happy. You’re welcome here. I would say gumbo is usually my favorite the Natsu Pha like a side if you’re gonna go for a whole meal I usually like the etouffee as a whole meal Versus a cup for that way if you were looking at that kind of thing alright now The next thing you won’t eat when you do come here is have a po-boy a po-boy is just a sandwich It’s like a submarine sandwich, but here when you have a po-boy I recommend getting the oyster po’boy Which is fried oysters on a baguette sandwich with salad and tomatoes and stuff and especially you know like sauce on it Oh my god It’s so good, but the thing is when you go around the US and you have a po-boy it has a certain connotation It’s like a spicy mayonnaise, and it usually has to be like fried catfish or fried oysters Or fried shrimp in it here in New Orleans a po-boy is any kind of sandwich like sub sandwich So what I say is if you’re getting tired of having the fried oysters and shrimp And all these kind of things be like look I would have a sandwich that Doesn’t have that in there go to mothers and have their special there because it’s got ham And then it’s got roast beef they put it on there with the azu on the bottom of it. Oh my god It’s so good You want to have one of those things? But have a pole boy um or if you want a different sandwich if you’re down here And you look at the line at Cafe Du Monde And it scares you walk farther down to the central grocery you can go there and have muffuletta which is It’s an Italian cut is a bunch of Italian cold cuts with an olive paste on top have that easy to go Sandwich to take they have them already ready walk in take it go enjoy Jackson Square Or go to the riverfront and take a yoga the streetcar somewhere It is one of those things you can have the fifth thing I’ve got to say you have to have when you do come here isn’t of food. It’s a drink You have to have a hurricane when you’re here look a hurricane is a super sweet rum drink, and it is very strong Okay, I’ve run into a bunch of Tours here like man They gave me this red drink But who I think it was too much for me look it can be hurricanes are super super strong But you’re gonna have one go to Pat O’Brien’s yes It’s a touristy place because they invented it, but actually they have a nice bar there that the bartender’s are quite knowledgeable They’d other stuff there too, but have a hurricane okay That’s the one drink you should have now I will give you a bonus here Cuz if you’re not into you know drinking and stuff like that because you don’t have to just drink here It’s not just French corridor Mardi Gras time all the time here at New Orleans. Okay, so if you’re looking for a sweet tooth I’ll give you a little dessert here. I guess our sixth thing I have is have something sweet, and that would be Bananas Foster, okay? Well you see what it is you have the bananas and then they? flambe them with it with the sauce of the caramelized sauce and they Flame it up with you know with the alcohol and stuff like that with a little ice cream on it. It’s fantastic Another thing is bread pudding this very popular down here too.
