Lafayette and Wallace: what's to eat there?

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 05:08:03 GMT

Less than eight miles from the Whitney Plantation (well worth a visit) is B and C Seafood on River Road. The red beans and rice is not worth it, but the smoked rabbit gumbo is deeply satisfying-- makes the world seem a better place. So good that we got a second portion to take home for supper. Just the kind of place I look for round here 2155 Highway 18, Vacherie

Can My Food Trailer Run off a Gas powered generator?

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 23:38:33 GMT

My husband and I are starting a food trailer in Louisiana, and we are in the process of looking for a generator. Are we required to have a propane generator or can it be regular gas powered? I know that we can purchase a converter or get a dual fuel one, just want a little advice if anyone is willing to share.

Forgotten BBQ in Jackson, MS

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 14:14:57 GMT

10-15 years ago I went to a small BBQ place in Jackson. Poor signage, hard to find, on top of that, seems like it was behind a car dealer, you couldn't see it from the road. Also recall the woman owner/chef had moved up there from Bogalusa, LA. Can't remember name of find a reference online. My imagination? Anybody know the place I am taking about? Stil there?

Lafayette, LA area great eats

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 03:06:46 GMT

Any worthwhile restaurants actually in Lafayette?

Tuscaloosa or Birmingham overnight for family of five: Need dinner, hotel, breakfast (preferably on a biscuit)

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 01:00:39 GMT

If you want a cocktail in Tuscaloosa, try Chuck's, which has good seafood. Dreamland is a fun place (the original, south of town off Jug Factory Road, is better than the one across the river in Northport), but beer only, and it does have its off days. Mugshots is good college burger place. Birmingham has much better restaurants. The Frank Stitt (he of the annual James Beard nominations) restaurants -- Highland Grill, Bottega, Bottega Cafe (reasonably priced), and Chez Fon Fon all are great by any standard (except maybe New Orleans or Paris) -- as are Hot and Hot Fish companioned Ovenbird. If you're paying for five, try Gianmarco's in the suburb of Homewood. Wonderful. Also in Homewood is Demitri's, a bbq place that has a good breakfast. SAW's (it's an acronym) has very good ribs, but no alcohol, and you'd have trouble getting seats for 5 -- and did I say there's no alcohol. SAW's Juke Joint in Crestline has drinks, but no ribs.

The Original Oyster House is my favorite!

Gourmet Walnut Gift Tin Help!

I suspect they were the famous black walnuts that have a specific intense flavor. Maybe something like this?

Where to buy Skin-on Pork Loin?

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 18:50:06 GMT

If you have a Mexican Grocery store near you that sells meat you can buy the skin of the pork. I did this for my British household and it was fantastic. I just bought a piece of pork from regular store and did the “crackling” separately. Hope that helps.

Restaurant Suggestions in and around Biloxi

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 11:41:45 GMT

Hi! I'll be there for a few days to do a half marathon and need some suggestions. Ideally, I'm looking for one of those Italian restaurants that give a large platter of pasta. I've narrowed it down to Sicilian II and Stalla (in the Beau Rivage) but was wondering if there were others. My husband is looking for a great seafood restaurant with fresh seafood... and fried oysters. These could be separate meals, lol. I have Desportes and Sons for lunch and Half Shell Oyster House but not sure if I'm missing the mark. I heard there is a large Vietnamese population there, so Le Bakery is on my list, but if there are suggestions for really good pho, I'd be interested. I'm also looking for a buffet (by the time I get there, it might be around 1-1:30) so not sure if someone had a favorite at one of the casinos. The other place on my list is Fuji Sushi House. Thank you!

Try Mamma Hamils in Madison MS next time.

Pay-By-The-Pound Breakfast Sausage

If you're in the Triangle, I think Firsthand Foods breakfast sausage is super good

Chinese Asheville

Raleigh. Better paid jobs and housing prices not so crazy. Now I can actually afford to dine out when I visit Asheville! Rarely could when I was living there.

Angelo's in Gulfport, Miss.

Have you gotten any recipes for Angelo's? Please share

Ray "Red" Gills Razorback Barbecue Sauce?

Sat, 12 Aug 2017 19:21:05 GMT

Short answer: yes, it is. Was tough to track down, using a lot of internet searches and tidbits of smalltown gossip (my mother lived in her hometown for a while). Here is a link to her facebook page:

French dressing on pizza in Biloxi?

Mon, 17 Jul 2017 21:25:43 GMT

(Grew up on the coast). I remember asking my dad about this in the 80s ... mainly because this kid moved to town and was like... french dressing? Pizza? What? Anyway, my dad told me about a big food fight that broke out at Hugos in the 50s. He was there or friends were there after a hight school game or something. Hugos used to place the pizzas on stands in the middle of the table. Salad dressing was thrown everywhere and on pizzas. Mostly french dressing and Hugo owner said if they ate the pizza and help clean, he wouldn't call the police. They did so and everyone liked the french dressing and kept doing so as a reminder about the big food fight (aside from liking it). Who knows... my dad is known to tell some stories. :)

Huntsville, Alabama recommendations?

Tue, 30 May 2017 18:01:15 GMT

We are going to be in Huntsville for a few days and I was checking the boards for restaurant recommendations, but the latest ones are two years old. Can anyone help with some current recommendations? My husband and I will be there with our teenage daughters this summer, and we would love to find some great non-chain restaurants. Extra points for places with local specialities (barbecue reccs, and anything else Huntsville is known for?) Breakfast, lunch or dinner and any price point. We would just like to enjoy some delicious meals. Thank you for your help!

Where should I eat in Little Rock - any cuisine, any price?

Dinner and Breakfast

Just passing through and have no idea where we are staying, we are driving down from Western Massachusetts.

Shelby County AL

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 16:48:24 GMT

I'm headed to Pelham/Indian Springs for a high school reunion and, suffice it to say, the area has changed a lot in the last 50 years. I'm looking for breakfast, barbecue, seafood, and pretty much anything else -- something Mexican/Central American would be nice. Adult beverages are a must at dinner. I know Birmingham and the close in suburbs well -- just looking for outside 459.

Anyone familiar w both Breaux Bridge AND Houma

Thu, 02 Mar 2017 04:08:07 GMT

Going on a big long road trip that will take me through Breaux Bridge LA for some cajun food. I have a very flexible schedule, and a moderately flexible belly. Places I have noted to try include (cut and pasted from my itinerary): Nash’s for turtle soup *Poor Boy'Riverside Inn – Duck and Andoullie gumbo Pat's Waterfront Restaurant – Crawfish ettoufe Soops Restaurant – seafood gumbo Poches Jubans (fancy) Baton Rouge PreJeans (Lafayette) Café des Amis After continuing on to TX I will loop back towards Atlanta (where I live). I kind of randomly looked into Houma as a possible stop and was surprised to see how big of a town it is, chock full of restaurant such as Melvins, Big Als, Spahrs (wild catfish), and Pit Stop for Beignets. I may grow weary from too much Cajun though and am wondering if a stop in Houma would just be redundant. Or, alternatively, if some of what I have on my visit to Breaux Bridge will seem like just more of the same after the first 2 or 3 restaurants. Truth be told, I probably WILL get tired of Cajun food after a few days and might not want to hit everything on that list so probably best to do the best ones first (assuming I will skip some others). So anyway, just wondering if anyone has experience in both places and feel that some of these are must visits while others are less essential. Thanks Dave
