Our Patatas Bravas with Pimentón Aioli. They go with Brunch Lunch or Dinner. 🥳 #versatile #potato
It wouldn’t be a Sunday morning without stopping in to @laboulangerienola.
Believe it or not I’ve never tried the pop tart here so I figured I’d give it a try.
First bite in, the excellent flaky layering that @laboulangerienola
is known for shines through. Before you get major flavor from the filling, the original flavor of the dough comes through with hints from the icing bringing a delicate glazed sweetness.
The majority of the flavor comes from a fun blueberry filling. This takes this pop tart to the level I’d expect out of @laboulangerienola.
Smooth and sweet with pop from the blueberry, for being a sweet filling it tastes amazingly fresh.
The pop tart is a fun different take, I enjoyed it, but if you’re making me pick one I’d have to go with their croissants. Fortunately, you don’t have to pick just one and can give this one a try next time and let me know what you think!
All the fresh produce you can take, and then some. 😊
Yesterday I met up with the absolutely stunning @thewhitneywest
Before I go into the delicious meal that was prepared for us I want to shoutout the entire FOH. From the moment I walked in and to the moment I walked out I was treated like royalty. The service was exceptional.⠀
The food that was prepared for us was A1. First off let me talk about this Cheesy Crawfish Pasta. It’s not overly cheesy which I greatly appreciate. It comes with sautéed crawfish tails and fried crawfish tails. It was wonderful. Quick side note. This is not the regular portion you will be served. The chef split this entree for us. So if you do order this which I highly suggest it will be double this size.⠀
Now for what I heard they are known for: the catfish. The catfish was fresh and fried to perfection. It was crispy and just everything catfish needed to be. ⠀
It definitely reminded me of my grandma’s catfish. Every summer my parents would dump me and my seven siblings in the middle of nowhere Mississippi to my grandma’s house. Every morning at 5am my uncle would wake me and we would go fishing on the banks of the lake, just the two of us, that sat on 643 acres of land my grandma owns and farms. We would catch roughly 4-5 large catfish every morning. We would bring it back to the house scale it, gut it, clean it, and filet it. Then my grandma would fried some up for breakfast and we ate fried catfish and grits. And after that we was out in them fields working HARD HARD.⠀
But eating that catfish yesterday really brought me back.⠀
But wait there is more since it’s Whit’s birthday weekend they sent out their Bourbon Cake. That cake definitely took me to sleep. So at 4:30 I was knocked out.⠀
The whole meal was just fabulous.⠀
The specs approves ✅⠀
And y’all tomorrow (Monday) is @thewhitneywest
birthday. Don’t forget to show her a little love.❤️

Molasses Glazed Texas Quail from Brunch at @CommandersPalace.
There really is no place like Commander's Palace. It is my go-to for everytime I am in NOLA. Have you been?
Smoked Salmon and a poached egg, sautéed spinach, lemon-dill hollandaise with a glass of sparkling Rose… is your mouth watering yet? Yeah...we thought so!

This summer hummus is 🔥 - Fresh masabacha hummus with green chickpeas, roasted garlic tahini, paprika spiced sunflower seeds. Y’all deserve this.
First time here. I loved the place! Food was outstanding. And the place just feels good. I’ll be back. We got the Mala Holla, Mama’s Dumplings and Spicy Dan Dan noodles. Mala Hala is served cold - perfect appetizer before the two hot dishes - and it was my fav. #wherenolaeats #eaternola #nolafood
