The last time we spent Thanksgiving in New Orleans, we enjoyed the brunch at Dooky Chase's. When we had to fly back home, we noticed there is a new, second location at the Louis Armstrong airport. Turns out this is about as good as any airport food you are likely to have. 

Be sure to check out my review of the brunch at the original Dooky Chase's location.

Okra, greens, and green beans

Bargain Po Boys at Captain Sal's Seafood and Chicken in New Orleans


Looking for a bargain on a tasty po boy in New Orleans? Then be sure to stop by Captain Sal's on St. Claude in Bywater. You get your second po boy for half price. And these sandwiches are big, too. Each one is cooked to order so plan on waiting a few minutes for your grub.

There's also chicken, seafood, and Chinese at Captain Sal's. We're going to try them the next time we're in town.

The day we were there, the place got busy as soon as the door opened up. Lots of people were picking up po boys to go (probably for the Saints game later that day).

Check out the menu on Captain Sal's web site.


If you're on the other side of town, be sure to check out the roast beef, firecracker shrimp, and catfish po boys at Parasol's.

St. Roch Market is near our vacation house in Bywater, and we stopped by every day for coffee and smoothies. There many other places to eat (and drink) so we stopped by Fritai Haitian Street Food to pick up an early dinner.

The spicy mango wings were excellent. Crispy, a little spicy hot, and juicy on the inside. It's served with avocado dip.
