Craving Now: New Orleans


Lisbeth Eats' blog post on beignets is to blame for what I'm craving now! Reading her post on beignets reminded me of some of the delicious food I had in New Orleans. I went a little over a year ago for a family wedding. Obviously, Cafe Du Monde was a must and it is good to know that I can just drive to Fed Hill to satisfy my craving for beignets. It also reminded me that I had a box of beignet mix I brought back in my cupboard. I've been trying to eat low carb, but...
The most delicious thing I ate while in New Orleans was the chargrilled oysters from ACME Oyster House. The wait to get a table at this place was easily over an hour, but to me it was totally worth it and I am seriously contemplating buying a ticket to fly down there to eat it ASAP! I have had chargrilled oysters at places locally, but they didn't even come close to stacking up to the oysters I had at ACME.


  1. I think the only time I've had oysters was when I was a teen and I didn't care for them. I will try the grilled oysters if I'm ever in New Orleans! I'm trying to get a New Orleans layover. So maybe!

  2. @Emily, at ACME I also tried the Peace Maker Po-Boy because when in New Orleans.... but it was underwhelming :( Those chargrilled oysters though! Mmmm

  3. I'm dying to go to New Orleans and try the food! I really want to go to Cafe du Monde.
