Cajun Food in New Orleans

Monday night we had supper with Marcia Mardis at LeBayou on Bourbon Street.  It was late for supper and after  getting turned down at 3 places with a long wait - we took this place because it had a table. The food was excellent - with lots of local flavor.

Tuesday afternoon - I had lunch at Rocky and Carlo's. It is in Chalmette - a bayou town where the Battle of New Orleans was fought. This area is 9 miles down the river from town - I rode my folding bike there. The place was a plain block building with a truss roof covered with painted plywood. It was new from after Katrina - fantastic food - prices low - lots of locals that live in "Katrina" trailers. You can tell they feed lots of people there. Biking home - against the wind - I got sun burned. Temps here are 50s and 60s - but breezy and sunny.
