I’ve been collecting some lunchtime photos this summer, and I’m trying a new way to lay them out here, in a slideshow-type of gallery. Let me know how you like it!
And finally, one of my favorite, albeit silly, snacks to eat around town. 13's tater tachos, or nachos built on tater tots instead of chips. Hey, don't knock 'em till you tot 'em!
pulled pork and black bean quesadilla
At 13 on Frenchmen Street. They also make a po boy with this pulled pork that's a lipsmacker.
Our pal Peyton grilled up some salty Alabama oysters on July 4 at Bayou St. John. These were so perfectly briny, they didn't need a thang.
roast lamb with gravy po boy
Also at the Milk Bar, and also in the running for the best sandwich in the universe of all time forever.
thai chili chicken po boy
From the Milk Bar: sliced roasted chicken and mozzarella with a spicy-sweet thai red chili sauce. I love it!
beignets, cafe du monde...
...at the mall (!) for a pre-shopping energy boost.
potato and onion omelet, add ham, at Camellia Grill
You'd be a fool to not try a famous potato and onion omelet at Camellia Grill. Though the burgers are hard to pass up.
fried green tomato and remoulade po boy, crabby Jack's
This normally comes with shrimp, but you can get it without for a vegetarian version.
a big pile of crispy calamari and jambalaya, crabby jack's
Crabby Jack's has this perfectly seasoned fry batter for their seafood. It's crispy, peppery, and golden every time. And OMG, they just got a website!
boudin & pickles, butcher
Also at The Butcher, this snack continues to be the best thing you can eat in the city for . Guaranteed.
duck pastrami butcher new orleans
Order this at The Butcher for about . In the running for the best sandwich in the universe of all time forever.
