The Po'Boy has been tempting me but I'm not a fan of beans (I'd be fine with plain rice if I could get it but not sure if it's pre-mixed or not).Tried a few things, as we waited roughly 30 minutes since mobile order was done by noon Saturday. Overall probably the best food we had this trip (we stayed 3 days for OBB).
- Muffuletta sandwich - my favorite. The bread was good and olive spread was perfect complement with a surprisingly hearty amount of meat (though I do wonder how many picky eaters are aware of this). On par with the Muffaletta I’ve had in NO. We had with the Mac n Cheese which was decent, but nothing to write home about. 9/10
- Po Boy - very good but also simple. I liked the Muffuletta better. Bread was fine but was a bit hearty. Wasn’t a huge fan of the red beans and rice. 7.5/10
- 7 Greens Gumbo with chicken and sausage. Fantastic! Super flavorful. Better than the Gumbo and Blue Bayou by a mile. You do have to be a fan of white beans and collared greens (which I am), but very flavorful. 8.5/10
- Other items:
- cornbread (a tad bit dry but flavorful) - 6/10
- Ice box lemon beignet (custard was good but it’s basically a donut, not a beignet, stick with the ones next door) - 5/10
If the menu is missing something I’d recommend maybe a deconstructed Muffaletta salad or fried green tomatoes. But there’s a decent amount here. I think this will be a hit but this menu is a decent test as this definitely experiments with more Southern flavors than your typical family from Tustin, Brea, or Whittier may be accustomed to. I also hope it can maintain its standards a year or two out.
