Hearty Southern Food: Shrimp Poboys in New Orleans

With the cool breeze coming in from the classic southern ceiling fan, we decided to experience our first taste of "southern food" at the authentic New Orleans restaurant, Nola or Old New Orleans  Cookery Restaurant.

Located on the infamous Bourbon Street, Nola serves up some of the tastiest southern classics such as Poboys, Gumbo and Seafood all for the price of $5-$30 depending on what you order from their enticing menu.

When sitting inside Nola, you are overcome with southern and classic American traits such as old wooden ceiling fans, exposed bricks, illuminated beer brand lights and the pleasant southern personality. 

Whilst browsing through the variety of yummy food in the menu, we decided to opt for a southern classic, the Poboy. I chose the spicy yet mouth watering shrimp whilst my boyfriend went for the succulent catfish (both of which were. $12 each). Served in a giant French baguette with coleslaw and rustic fries we tucked into one of our best yet on our tour around America. 

Washed down with the traditional New Orleans, Dixie beer, we enjoyed this meal for a total of $38 including tax and 20% tip.

Overall, this place offered us a taste of authentic southern food for a great price. Plus we were given a handy 10% off by the guy on the door to further lure us in when looking for something to eat onBourbon  Street - you will find lots of places offering you discounts, but personally this one looked like one of the best and the food sure was good ;)
