Food Style? PoBoys
My final meal in New Orleans is at Mahony's, another restaurant in the French Quarter famous for its poboys. A few doors down from Killer PoBoys, this joint is more traditional in its flavours, with fillings like fried shrimp, fried oyster, alligator sausage and roast beef. I've gone for the fried shrimp with full dressing.
Fried Shrimp PoBoy with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo
The shrimp is crispy and tasty, and there's a lot of it. This is a very generous portion. It's really the hero of the poboy, and all the other additions are nice accompaniments that highlight the protein. The pickles give that hit of acidity and the mayonnaise gives that delicious creaminess without overpowering all the other flavours. A few shakes of tobasco and this sends me to cloud nine. A bottle of root beer to wash it all down - perfection. Thanks, NOLA, what a fantastic time.
