This is by far my favorite thing to do here. In my opinion, the food here is simply the best in the world. Just thinking about what exists here just makes my mouth water. Who Dat Nation loves to mix food with football on Sundays.

Ultimately, there is some chef’s blood in me, as my father used to cook at Commanders Palace back in the day. Be that as it may, my favorite thing to do is simply EAT! In 40 plus years of living in New Orleans, there has never been a bad oyster that has hit my mouth. Add that with shrimp, gumbo, jambalaya, red beans, etc. The chefs here are magicians with seasonings.

My only advice to tourists is bring a size up in your clothing measurement. Believe me, your stomach will stretch much farther than ever before. Be ready and prepared to inhale some things to die for.
