(From Dining Diary- Boucherie new orleans Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding)
I am currently in New Orleans visiting friends and soaking up the big easy culture! It is such a FABtastic city with so much great music, architecture and food, food, food! Did I mention food? If you visit New Orleans, you have to come to terms with the fact that you are going to gain 10 pounds. And you’ll love every minute of it.
My friend took me to the restaurant Boucherie, which is a tucked away neighborhood place located in a quirky cottage! It is filled with foodies and friendly staff that gush about every delicious dish. Ohh boy was everything good! My favorite dish was actually a special. Duck over grilled bread with a roasted brussel sprout salad on top! Wahoo! The duck was moist and had a rich flavor which paired perfectly with a refreshing salad on top!
Next we had “Boudin Balls,” which are a southern specialty made with cajun style pork sausage and dirty rice. They make a ball out of those ingredients and then deep fry it. Boucherie serves these balls with a wonderful garlic aioli! YUMmazing! Also, don’t miss the Applewood smoked scallops with plantain chips and Krispy Kreme bread pudding. Yup, it is made out of Krispy Kreme donuts. To die!
Lets not forget out cocktails ladies! I suggest the carrot cilantro margarita! How unique is that? The carrot juice with a splash of lime pairs perfectly with the blanco tequila! FAB! I had such a great experience and think this is a must stop shop!
