This gumbo is double bird magic

Pheasant Quail Andouille Sausage Gumbo New Orleans Jazz Fest 2014

OMFG. How many small birds does it take to make New Orleans gumbo great? Two apparently. That’s why in this gumbo the pheasant flies with the quail – a fabulous pairing. Together they combine to help your entire being take flight. Or for others maybe a quick nap behind a Jazz Fest food court trash can. This is really filling ... Read More »

French Quarter’s Oceana Grill serves up tsunami sauce crab cakes

French Quarter Oceana Grill crab cakes

  The French Quarter’s Oceana Grill is smack on Bourbon and Conti Streets, so much easier to find than say Adolfo’s on Frenchman Street. The restaurant also fits nicely into several Krewe d’Agave core criteria. They pour Bloody Marys (pretty good ones) and they serve their entire dinner menu until 1am, right when we need a righteous feed. On its Oceana ... Read More »

Cochon du lait: Jazz Fest breakfast of champions

New Orleans Jazz Fest 2014 Conchon du lait

  Cochon du lait literally translates from French as ‘pig in milk’ or as it is more commonly referred to ‘suckling pig’. But who really gives a shit about linguistics anyway? Succulent pulled pork is what this fork craves in the morning after a night of clubbing and she’s got to have it. There are too many outstanding things about ... Read More »

Adolfo’s on Frenchman Street fit for a Queen

Alfonso's Frenchman's Street New Orleans

It would be easy to miss Adolfo’s on Frenchman Street, tucked away above the cosy Apple Bar. Just make sure you don’t walk on by and miss a culinary treat of a lifetime. Krewe d’Agave was basking in a pure 100% blue agave glow so taking in the relaxed sounds at Apple Bar suited us perfectly. Adolfo’s is small, funky ... Read More »

Jazz Fest 2014 krewes protest price rise Soft Shell Crab Po Boy

One of this fork’s all time favourites – Soft Shell Crab Po Boys – cost US$ 12 at Jazz Fest 2014. $12 bucks! There I said it and I’m over it. First year it was $5. Some Krewe d’Agave old timers will probably mumble a yarn about how it was only $2.50 the first year they attended Jazz Fest. But this ... Read More »

Santa Cruz’s Tacos Morenos is ‘porkaliscious’

Tacos Morenos, best Mexican food, tacos, burritos in Santa Cruz

Why is it that the best taquerias also happen to make their own tortillas? The gooey, chewy, floury warmth of the fresh made wraps are almost as delicious as the spicy contents inside. Tacos Morenos has been following the same super fresh formula for over three decades. And while they’re Tacos Morenos in name, it’s the burritos that amaze this ... Read More »

San Diego’s best Mexican food

chorizo con huevo hand made torillas las cuatro milpas mexican food san diego

Why did it take this fork so long to finally eat at Las Cuatro Milpas? I grew up in  San Diego across the Bay. The question of why it took me so long to experience this food orgasm bounced around my brain as I euphorically devoured a pollo asado burrito (US$4.75) and two tacos (US$3.25). It took all of six ... Read More »
