Louisiana, New Orleans Guide (B): All the Food in New Orleans

All the food in New Orleans. Me oh my oh! New Orleans is a mecca for culinary encounters with a unique food scene covering its Cajun, Creole, Caribbean, African and European heritage.

It’s said that the name comes from ‘poor boy’. When the street car drivers went on strike in 1929 local restaurants supported their cause by creating a cheap sandwich made with French bread and scraps of roast beef. Nowadays the Po’ boy’s evolved and many different varieties are available. ‘Dressed’ means it comes with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and pickles.
