Just in case you need to catch up on my New Orleans adventure here's some interesting facts about NOLA and here's how I navigated the Big Easy.
When I was initially planning my trip to New Orleans, I knew that I wanted to eat some extremely good food but I didn't want to eat at the traditional stops in the French Quarters. I wanted to to try and eat like a local and I did just that at Grand Isle.
Grand Isle is a really cool seafood restaurant in Fulton Street promenade in downtown New Orleans. It's conveniently located to several hotels including Loews New Orleans, Harrah's New Orleans, Omni Riverfront and the hotel where I stayed, Old No. 77 Hotel & Chandlery. The restaurant has been in business since 2007, but recently has welcomed a new …show more content…
I've never been a huge tomato fan but the seasoning and preparation of these made me keep eating them long after the catfish was gone. At one point, I told them to leave the plate because I was still eating tomatoes and rice.
He Said: This dish was an unusual spin on catfish, as it relied less on the catfish itself, but instead placed most of its flavor in the total package of the catfish and the chef-made creole sauce it sat upon. The chef clearly had the mixture in mind, as you won't find much added flavor on the catfish (which was fried to a more than satisfactory level of crispness), but you will find a taste of total New Orleans when you dip it in its bed of Creole sauce.
EEEEKKK Alligator Wings-The front legs from medium sized alligators, marinated in Jerk seasoning for 48 hours, fried, taken out to rest, fried again then tossed in a sweet hot peach glaze served with whipped bleu cheese.
She Said: Gator does not taste like chicken as people will have you to believe. Gator tastes like gator. I had a tiny piece because umm it's gator. I did however thoroughly enjoy the whipped bleu cheese. Chef Haigler told me they puree bleu cheese and add heavy cream to it and whip it all together. Yall! I kept sticking my fork in it while Brandon enjoyed the …show more content…
What you get are nicely sized, wing-shaped pieces of alligator meat that are quite tasty. The wings have a seasoned taste to them, and while I was forewarned that they would be a bit spicy, I did not find them to be offensively spicy, if at all. The meat is not tough and gamy, but instead is very tender and easy to bite off the bone. You will also find these to be very meat-intensive wings, not cluttered with fatty "danger zones" that make you want to skip areas of traditional chicken wings. Though my manner of eating these large wings was very "interactive", I did not find my face or hands to be excessively greasy, which was very nice. Although this was listed in the Appetizer area of the menu, the serving size (in addition to the size of the wings) could easily be a main course for those who don't desire a huge dish.
Shrimp and Grits
She Said: Whoa! I think this may be my favorite dish. At some point of reading the description I completely ignored "andouille gravy" and was so suprised at the andouille forward flavor when tasting the sauce. If you're not a pork eater or a fan of smoked sausage, this is not the dish for you. The grits were creamy, the shrimp were tender and the andouille gravy was smokey without being too dark. I could taste Chef Haigler's South Carolina roots in this dish. A definite winner! Brandon

During Jeanne’s stay at Manzanar, she had first handily experienced her first meal, which then made a big impact during her stay at Manzanar. She was given apricots over her rice, something that was out of her cultural norm which is why it had impacted her stay at Manzanar. Traditionally, the author explains that rice is to be served with savory or salty food, but she was given apricots instead. This can be assumed that her own culture consisted of a different cuisine, and to receive something outside of that, would have given her a feeling of disgust and unease at Manzanar. Jeanne had also implied how she felt horrified when she had and wanted to comment, but her mom had prevented her from doing so.
Abuelo’s, in Mason, has consistently been voted the best Mexican food in America, which is little wonder due to the exceptional family recipes and friendly atmosphere. The crisp and gooey jalapeno cheese fritters served with ranch dressing and the firecracker shrimp in chili aioli and spicy peanut dressing with mango salsa are ideal starters. Some of Abuelo’s specialty entrée dishes include the tilapia Veracruz sautéed with shrimp, scallops and roasted poblanos, the grilled and bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin medallion los mejores de la casa accompanied by bacon-wrapped shrimp stuffed with cheese and jalapenos and the chicken enchiladas with fire-roasted queso sauce, all of which are perfectly seasoned and great alongside the frozen sangria swirl

They have a wide variety of appetizers and main courses. My favorite appetizer has to be their black pepper chicken wings. It is a mouth watering combination of sweet and salty and has the perfect amount of spiciness for a variety of different palettes. For the main courses, I especially love the ribs with a side of sauted green beans. When you look at the dish, you immediately want to devour the smoldering red, tender ribs, as well as the juicy seasoned beans.

I was born in New Orleans, but raised in Brooklyn. For several reasons my parents decided to leave NOLA shorty after my birth. From then on, I was raised in New York state; more specifically Brooklyn. It wasn't until the age of sixteen that I finally returned to my home city. My parents had just divorced and for that reason, my mother no longer wished to stay in New York.
Customers have a choice of ordering either a six or eight ounce portion. That is incredibly big for a plate of seafood to be served. Also there is an open kitchen which customers can visibly see the cooks cook their food. In addition, the seafood is extremely fresh because people can see the cook in the kitchen take the fish out of the tank. Furthermore, with these fish, customers have the option of picking sauces such as mango salsa, lemon butter, and pan Asian.
Throughout my life, I have traveled to many different cities in the United States. Unfortunately, I have not had the opportunity to experience staying in a different country or foreign culture for an extended period. One experience that I experienced culture shock in would be my travels to Mississippi. About six years ago, I joined my grandmother’s family in their travel to her native hometown of Holly Springs, Mississippi to visit her relatives.
They offer fresh white meat chicken tenders, crinkle cut fries, coleslaw, tangy delicious Cane’s sauce and garlic buttered Texas toast. The menu is limited. A current canes employee stated, “A reason for that success says Dover, who started his job last July after stepping down as Chief Executive of Metromedia Restaurant group, is that the company focuses on what it does best and makes sure it does it well,”(Thorn). Since they have such a small menu they can provide fresh food, quickly.
